Publisher's Summary

Augum, Bridget, and Leera want only to study new spells and make their legendary mentor proud. But when she unexpectedly departs on a crucial quest, they run afoul of a devious old witch and are forced to make a hasty getaway - straight into the hands of a notorious maniac known as the Blade of Sorrows. 

Prisoners of the Blade and his sadistic apprentice, the trio must face its greatest challenge yet: escape using nothing but an ancient spell with some nasty side effects. But more than their lives are at stake, for an entire kingdom's hopes rest with their mentor - and she's heading for a deadly trap.

Could not finish

I found the first book to be entertaining enough to buy the second audio book. However, it just became too painful to finish - I made it not quite 1/2 way through. I am sorry but this book was just a non-stop adolescent whine fest. I actually really enjoy YA, coming of age fantasy books but I do not get how anyone listening could find Riven entertaining.

Don't trust my opinion? Go ahead and read the free sample on Amazon for the Kindle version. The whining in the sample persisted throughout my listening experience. Like I said, painful.

Oh, and if I had to listen to someone shout "Shyneo" one more time . . . well, you get the point.
