Worth the wait~

This latest arc from Janny Wurts ties the loose ends for the faithful followers of the Wars of Light & Shadow. Weaving together many dangling plot lines left to speculative intrigue in the two prior volumes, Stormed Fortress, & Initiates Trial, the reader is delightfully treated to several astonishing revelations and unpredictable plot twists.
This current volume is also the first available as an audiobook. It is admirably narrated and I look forward to more high quality narration of the entire work.
If you are a Science Fantasy enthusiast new to this work I highly recommend Curse of the Mistwraith & welcome you on an exquisite literary journey.

So excited to see this!

I’ve enjoyed this series for years and devoured this book as soon as it was released. I waited for the audio version and savored it like a delicious feast like Babette’s! It is totally awesome, Colin Maces narration and perfect! I only hope enough interest is shown to foster the production of the rest of the series.

why don't we have this series from book 1?

I wish I could give whoever made this decision one star. this entire series is amazing and the world needs to hear it, but for anyone new to the series or to Janny Wurts, it seems like it would be a hard decision to try this book out so far along in the story? are you expecting new readers to go out, read all the preceding books, then come back to this, or are you expecting only current fans to buy this audiobook? either way, doesn't it seem smarter to release an audiobook of Curse of the Mistwraith? I already know the author would like this done, so whoever needs to give this the greenlight, please do, and make this awesome series more accessible to people.

Stupendous

If you invest yourself in the works of Janny Wurts you should expect to expand your self awareness and come through the journey wiser with at least some tears being shed along your path. My pulse was pounding, gasps and maybe a sob or three. Emotional adventure from satisfaction to dispair to dizzy heights of victory. A worthy cresendo towards the finale.
