Publisher's summary

Orphaned by the brutal death of her mother right before her very eyes, a young Anati child flees into a nightmare of lonely survival, desperate hunger, and fearfully haunted nights. In the very same city, a young, purebred Nephti kit has everything she could ever want - prestigious parents, a noble family house, and a well-appointed lair. These two will become the heroines of their age and legends of the ages to come, but the path that leads them there will be neither easy nor glorious.

Vanarra Anasto grows up as an outcast, hiding from society while Sahnassa de Orturu flees from the expectations her parents and family lay upon her. As Vanarra claws her way slowly forward, hoping to survive and find a future, Sahnassa's future is challenged and undermined by the very family sworn to protect and nurture her.

When the two meet, necessity pulls them together, but the clash of their different worlds constantly pulls them apart. Although they settle into an uncomfortable friendship, Sahnassa's family begins making overtures of reconciliation towards her. Vanarra feels bitterly betrayed, and the pain and hurt of so many seasons of abuse and neglect from the paws of purebreds causes her to lash out. Emotionally wounded, Sahnassa flees back to her family, wondering if a purebred can ever understand the soul of the mixed blood.

An excellent listen!

Where does Purebred: Soul of the Mixed Blood: The Thurian Saga, Book 5 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say near the top, though my experience with audiobooks is a little light (Full disclosure.) I have heard some of the black library books and a few of the Pendergast novels, and I would say that I had a more enjoyable time with this book than most of the others. In particular the familial/business intrigue and drama during the second half of the book engaged me, and the ending was timed and written perfectly: When it was all over I immediately went shopping for the next book in the timeline.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I would have to say Sahnassa gets the nod for my favorite character, more than any character she is in the center of many different arenas during the book and I would guess is playing the most delicate balancing act of all of them through the series.

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I can not compare as I have listened to no other performances, I can only say that in this audiobook I believe she was an amazing choice. Her ability to voice anything from a child to an old woman and everything in between was flawless, and she did well with the male roles as well!

If I was simply desperate to make
