Publisher's Summary

Diviners have told Audrun that the child she carries must be born in a haven of peace, far from her war-scourged homeland, but as she flees she finds only far greater danger. For her karavan is overtaken by Alisanos, the deepwood - a dangerous magical forest that harbors not only demons, gods, and other otherworldly creatures, but also its own sinister intentions - and which may have already claimed Audrun and her child for its own.

it got really good at the end

I have been a huge Jennifer Roberson fan ever since i was 15 yrs old. still to this day the Chronicles of the Cheysuli are my favorite series.
However i had a harder time getting into this book. maybe because the book has a way of jumping around and I was having a hard time keeping track of who was where. it wasn't until I got a little over halfway through the book that I really started to enjoy it.
If you have patience I would definitely recommend the book.

excellent story

it took listening through the first few chapters before I became used to the narrator. She sounded a bit stilted at first, and then relaxed into the narration. After that a most enjoyable listen.
