Falls flat

This book seemed rushed in the writing of it. It fell flat in comparison to the previous books. It made me wonder if anyone edited it. The repetition is irritating. If I had to hear "Ewald's Gift" one more time!! The ending was extremely weak.

A Stunning Conclusion!

A stunning conclusion to this series! The last installment was phenomenal. Gruoch is faced with many more challenges but they are on her terms. Emotional at times, the story was fast paced and fantastic helped by the lovely voice of Lesley Parkin. It’s so hard to say goodbye. I have grown very fond of these characters. I loved the ending. Farewell my friends. Till next listen. I give this 5 stars.

Heart Rending Great Read!

This last in the series was hard for me to finish. I did not want it to end. Through the story I have come to love and hate some of the characters. Some I wanted to just see go on and on. It haunts me the story it was so beautiful and a great end. The narrator Lesley Parkin did one fantastic job on bring everyone to life and bringing you in to the story making you feel like a part of it.

The king is dead... Long live the queen... A satisfying conclusion to a remarkable and stunning series that will leave you breathless and non-prepared for the conclusion of this series. Amazing! Lovely narration. Enjoyed every minute of it.

This series should be a movie!

I've loved every book in this series! It's brilliant the way Melanie wove what little is known about Lady Macbeth into the story. The narration was fantastic! I couldn't imagine actually reading the book for myself versus listening to Lesley's powerful narration, with wonderful Scottish accents. What a joy to listen to! I was thoroughly transported. The series is over....now what to do???

Love this series

I really got into the characters and the story line. I loved the narrator and the way she makes each of the characters come to life. I felt like I was there walking in the tunnels or smelling wisteria. The entire series is very well done both written and narrated. I have listened to the series several times now and I really enjoy it. At times I would cry out NO or Kill him or don’t go.
