Publisher's Summary

In Rhapsody a fellowship was forged - three companions who, through great adversity, became a force to be reckoned with: Rhapsody, a singer of great talent and even greater beauty; Achmed, an assassin with unearthly talents; and Grunthor, a giant sergeant-major whose jolly disposition stands at odds with his deadly skill at weapons. Having fled the F'dor - an ancient, powerful evil - the three emerged on the other side of the world only to discover 14 centuries had passed. Their homeland had been destroyed, their people scattered across several continents, and everyone they ever knew had long since passed away...except perhaps the F'dor.

Prophecy continues this powerful epic. Driven by a prophetic vision, Rhapsody races to rescue the religious leader of her new homeland while Achmed and Grunthor seek evidence of the F'dor. These three may be their world's only hope, the heroes spoken of in the Prophecy of the Three, but their time is running short. They must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all.

Enjoyed the book

The comment you see most about these books are people worrying about the reader. It stands out at first, but it's extremely enjoyable as you keep listenening.

I would highly recommend.

A great continuace of the story

After the cliff hanger of the first book this picks up right after the first book. The story continues much like the first book and shows how many of the characters have grown. Rhapsody is still fairly oblivious to the world around her and personally that does break the immersion a bit but still an enjoyable story.

Great narrator. Don't listen to reviews!

I'm loving the new adventure in this series. I almost didn't buy it because of people complaining abt the narrator. Don't listen. I almost missed out. I've listened to over 400 books and believe me this guy is good! I've set thru painful books cause some narrators make it to where you just can't get into the books and that's a waisted credit! Not this guy. I think some people just like to complain! Enjoy the new adventure!! 🙋

Missing something

Since there is no way to report it, im giving 1 star till someone figures it out.
Chapter 44 is messed up at around the 4:20 mark.
makes no sense, like the narrarator skipped chunks of the book.

Absolutely absorbing & worth the obsession

I LOVE this series! It is my absolute FAVE books; #1 on my loooong list of beloved books. This audio performance is a wonderful credit to the books & to the author, Elizabeth Haydon. First of all, Haydon brought to life a gorgeous, intriguing, imaginative, absorbing world full of a vivid cast of characters that draw you in & pull you into experiencing their world. The eternal battle between good & evil, greed & compassion, love & hate is so well expressed that it's easy to feel assimilated into each characters emotions & experiences. There are some that you love or connect with, that you feel their struggle to maintain & create a more peaceful land, & root for them to overcome the powers that are against them & win the battle for good & life. There are others that you hate, that you exhort to fail in their mission to destroy the world & the souls of the population for evil. The terrain, the people, the ambiance becomes almost real enough to touch. Magic, power, blood, desire, sword fighting, dragons, royalty, hate, love...... If you are a lover of epic fantasies then this should DEFINITELY give this book a read & see if you end up reading the entire series over & over. Second, the narration is wonderful & beautifully performed. The ability to create, express, & maintain distinctive, different voices for EVERY speaking character through each book is one that he has absolutely nailed! He vocalized the emotions & action in a manner that makes it seem as if you are standing next to the characters, in their world with them, fully fashioning a realm, allowing you to get lost in the beauty & heartbreak of her universe. I can't praise & recommend these books enough to everyone looking for an epic fantasy that will keep you reaching for just one more read through, just one more escape into another universe full of all the ingredients that makes the genre so special! 5 stars across the board. Give it a read.... I promise you won't regret it!

The book is great, the narrator not so much.

I have been a Rhapsody fan since the beginning, however Kevin T. Collins does not do the book justice with his flat monotone voice (no offence). Maybe it gets better in the series, but I feel like the original female narrator was more enthusiastic.

narration is getting slightly better

the first book's narration was truly terrible, I barely made it through... it seems like he's taken some critiques and has improved, but the voices are still terrible. why choose to use a British accent if you cant do one? and why hire someone who cant do accents if the characters have to be british?

A great story ruined by an annoying narrator

I read the original trilogy about eight years ago, and I loved it. The author does a great job weaving together enough new and unique story ideas that one can overlook how easily predictable the storyline is. Oddly enough, however, as I was listening to it in audiobook format, I started to dislike it. Parts of the story became almost unbearable, and I could not figure out why. During the second book, I realized it was the narrator that was driving me crazy.

It is not that he is entirely terrible. Indeed, some of his voices are great (e.g., Achmed, Gruntor, angry Ash, etc.). The problem is his voicing of Rhapsody throughout the series. His voice for Rhapsody is something both airy and effeminate, the combination of which just begins to grate on me after a while for two reasons. First, the majority of the story is from Rhapsody's perspective. Second, Rhapsody is a character with a musically driven, flowery dialogue style. Because of these voice and dialogue features, there were multiple occasions where I literally shouted out loud to the narrator, "Get on with it!" I have a feeling that I would enjoy him as a reader in another series, but I definitely do not enjoy him as the reader in this one. After 60 hours of hearing him read, I am seriously considering returning the third book so I can be done with the series.

Good.

There were some weird moments when you could tell the reading was out of order. There were a few parts where it was I. One persons voice and then it would jump to a different part of the book and then jump back again. (I've read the book and I know that it had to have been a recording or mixing mistake.) But other than that, it was a good listen.
