Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Maria V. Snyder transports listeners back to the realms of Sitia and Ixia in an exciting new Study novel full of magic, danger, and intrigue.

Ever since being kidnapped from the Illiais Jungle as a child, Yelena Zaltana's life has been fraught with peril. But the recent loss of her Soulfinding abilities has endangered her more than ever before. As she desperately searches for a way to reclaim her magic, her enemies are closing in, and neither Ixia nor Sitia is safe for her anymore. Especially since the growing discord between the two countries and the possibility of a war threaten everything Yelena holds dear.

Valek is determined to protect Yelena, but he's quickly running out of options. The Commander suspects that his loyalties are divided, and he's been keeping secrets from Valek...secrets that put him, Yelena, and all their friends in terrible danger. As they uncover the various layers of the Commander's mysterious plans, they realize it's far more sinister than they could have ever imagined.

I am not enjoying this experience at all.

I've read all the previous books and fell in love... with the characters, the world's, the pace of the stories. This feels like an upward climb on a tall steep mountain. I am particularly not enjoying the voice telling the story nor the versions of voices for other characters. Perhaps Mrs Synder has not grown with us, the readers.

Incredible, just like the previous books.

Full of magic, mystery, and intrigue, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I don’t think I will EVER get tired of listening.

These books get worse and worse.

I loved the first book and the second book was even better but apparently after that the author ran out of ideas. Each subsequent book has been a tiresome collection of repetitions. Seriously how many times can one group of people get captured and escape. It's all they do, and not even in new and exciting scenarios just "Oh no we got tricked again, better plan our escape, again." Over and over and over. The only thing that ever happens between escape and recapture is someone is haunted by the past or the very obviously evil person does evil. I've been trapped in this series long enough, time to escape, but unlike Yelena, I won't be back.

Perfection!

This story is so complete. I am fully immersed and am vested in the characters lives. The world is so real. I usually lose interest in a series at this point, but I can’t wait to listen to the next book.

And the plot thickens

I love all of the study books but really enjoyed the revelations for Valek and how he deals with them. and Gabra Z. is as usual, perfect with these books!

Inconsistencies increasing with each book?.

I really like these stories, however each new book brings more inconsistencies. Originally, she created a fantasy world, but she’s gradually incorporating things from our current world into her fantasy world. Like Quarter horses, an American breed, and Thoroughbred horses, a British breed. Or instead of a character sending a messenger, they're going to message someone. Those are just two examples of many. It's as though the author has gotten lazy with her created fantasy world.

Great Series

One of the better series of books I have read in a long time. Enjoyed it greatly, had to buy whole series halfway through the first book because I knew i wouldnt be able to stop.

Does not fail to deliver!

Oh my! As a big Yelena fan, I could not be happier with this audiobook instalment.

Since having children I've found less time to read and audiobooks have been a sanity saver on many occasions.

We found out a juicy tidbit at the end of the last book, which quite obviously dominates this one, but still immersed in adventure, sneakery and Janco <3

Gabra Zackman is a fabulous narrator.
