Publisher's Summary

With Elspeth, the heir to the throne of Valdemar, now of marriageable age, Talia, the Queen's Own Herald, returns to court. Here, she finds the Queen and heir beset by diplomatic intrigue as various forces vie for control of Elspeth's future.

But just as Talia is about to uncover the traitor behind all these intrigues, she is sent off on a mission to the neighboring kingdom, chosen by the Queento investigate the worth of a marriage proposal from Prince Ancar. And, to her horror, Talia soon discovers there is far more going on at Prince Ancar's court than just preparation for a hoped - for royal wedding. For a different magic than that of the Heralds is loose in Ancar's realm - an evil and ancient sorcery that may destroy all of Valdemar unless Talia can send warning to her Queen in time.

The end of Talia's story

The final book in Talia's story. Dirk, Kris, and Elspeth are all featured again with Talia's interactions with them as she takes on her duties as Queen's Own. Another wonderful story.

Great story, annoying reader

Why oh why must some readers assign that best "bad guy voice" to villains and a "good guy voice" too heroes? That character that will eventually turn on the hero, saw it coming. How? To borrow a line from the book, he sounded "like a third rate gleeman in a badly written play". You'll find yourself wishing the bad guys dead long before they can actually do anything, just because you can't stand to listen to that anoying voice anymore. And when a line from the book reads "she laughed" instead of "she said" - don't worry, the reader will indeed laugh her way through the line. You may not understand what was said through the laughing, and if it's a villain the laughing will sound so annoying you'll wish you couldn't understand, but she will indeed laugh.

However, for all the issues with the readings the story is great, the climax of an incredible trilogy. I'd still recommend the book, despite the reader, simply because the book is that great!

Wonderful but sad

I love how realistic the characters are in this series. They are not your typical perfect super person, and that makes it so much more beautiful. Also, there is a sad part but it's still a great listen.

An exciting tale....

Mercedes Lackey continues Talia's saga and Christa Lewis does a remarkable job reading. I must say when I first started Talia's saga, I was most disappointed to find that Ms Lewis was the story teller. She is now listed among my favorites. Thank you both for another wonderful tale.

fantastic narrator

The narrator does an absolutely wonderful job, brings such life to these books that I was so fond of as a child. I couldn't stop listening and finished them in record time, though now I'm almost sorry I did.

Just as Good as I remember !

I've been recently meaning to reread this series over the last few years. Still a great story and it still brings tears to my eyes everytime I read it. If any story shows that Author's can pull the emotional heartstring of their readers this is one of them.

I love the new narrator, I'm glad that there is finally a complete set of an Audio version of this series. I hope to see Christa in more stories form Valdemar in the future!

Great story from Mercedes Lackey

Arrows Fall was a great finish to the Arrows of the Queen Trilogy. The narrator gives a good solid performance for the story just like she did for the first 2 in the trilogy.
