Publisher's Summary

Bayern has triumphed in its war with Tira. But though the war is over, simmering anger remains among the Tirans and new hostilities could erupt at any moment. In a desperate attempt to maintain the peace, King Geric sends an ambassador to the Tiran capitol. Of course, an ambassador needs a military guard. Razo - short, impish, and not at all skilled at combat - longs to be among those selected to go, but thinks he has no chance. So he is astounded when Captain Talone taps him to join the group. He’s even more astounded when he discovers the secret reason for Talone’s decision.

All too soon Razo is up to his eyeballs in a simmering mix of danger and intrigue - not to mention an unexpected romance. But as the gruesome deaths mount, everyone is a suspect...even the girl who has stolen Razo’s heart.

Great detective story

I really enjoyed this story in the Bayern Books. It was great to see how Razo's giftings came out and they weren't the mystical type. This book was funny and my family and I laughed out loud many times. Every time Razo realized he was good at something I was happy for him. This book reminded me a lot of the tv program "Psych." I would definitely recommend this book. Shannon Hale is a great author and the team of actors voicing the story are the same voices as the first two books. Good series and this book might be my favorite.....after "Goose Girl."

Wonderful sweet series

I truly have enjoyed this full cast audio book series.
I often fall asleep during audiobooks but have found the story and the voicing of the story to be engaging.
Enjoy

Little corny, but sweet with very poetic moments

The main plot was fairly simplistic to me, even for a young reader. However the descriptions are vivid and there are several tender moments between the characters that make it worth the read.

Like so far, however

I like the series so far, however … the final book of the series is not included with membership so I would have to spend more money to finish the series. I typically check before I invest myself in a story. I’m disappointed I didn’t catch this before I started the series.

Awful voices

What absolutely horrible voices. The narrator was fine but almost everyone else sounded like lisping 10 year olds. The story was interesting but I won't listen to the rest of the series with these awful vocals.
