Publisher's Summary

Talia could scarcely believe that she had finally earned the rank of full Herald. Though this seemed like the fulfillment of all her dreams, it also meant she would face trials far greater than those she had previously survived. 

For now, Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispensing Herald's justice throughout the land. 

But in this realm beset by dangerous unrest, enforcing her rulings will require all the courage and skill Talia could command - for if she misuses her own special powers, both she and Valdemar will pay the price.

Best audiobook narrator!

The book is a classic and second in a series. I absolutely LOVE this narrator. She brings new life to much loved and familiar characters.

Again a Fantastic Story and Performance

As I have said before, Mercedes Lackey's telling of Talia's story was always fantastic, from the first time I read it in the late eighties. But Christa's reading brings the story alive in such a way, I am enjoying her story all over again. Her version of the character Conversations reflect all the emotions of the character, from Talia's depressing self doubt to her sheer joy and playfulness. Each Character has a voice and Christa does and excellent job of maintaining continuity of the voices.

I will tell you now, the worse part of this book is knowing we have to wait for the last part of Talia's story. but when it comes, I am sure I will be as pleased with Arrows Fall, as I am with Arrows of the Queen and Arrow's Flight.

Enthralling experience

It was very hard to not get caught up in this tale of a personal struggle to overcome & then develop their true potential gift. This author's ability to put you into story is uncanny, but really makes the story come alive for you at a deeper level.

Second book of the series

Again I am transported to the day I read this book cover to cover. The second in the 'Arrows' trilogy, continuing the story of Talia. The only thing that made.it irritating to hear was the harsh British accent of the reader as she switches from narratator to narrated.

bad narrator

The story is excellent. I have read this series several times and have waited for it to be put on audio. But was real disappointed the narrator not right for book.She's boring and rambles on.The accents are distracting.This is an adventure book and she's putting me to sleep.I be better off with the text to editor.
Mrs Lackey your Valdemar books are great but your picks in narrators leave much to be desired.I did like the narrator on the foundation series but the others all zzzz worthy

Accents are annoying and detract from the story.

Waited a long time for this book to come out on Audible. I wanted and expected to love it but I found the reader’s choice of accents very annoying and distracting. All the narration is a very nice North American generic accent but all the characters have a variety of English, Scottish and Irish accents. I found the contrast jarring and unnecessary. Characters can be differentiated without resorting to strong accents.
