Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author Elizabeth Haydon returns with a heartbreaking tale of love and valor in The Hollow Queen, the eighth installment of her USA Today best-selling Symphony of Ages series that began with Rhapsody.

Beset on all sides by the forces of the merchant emperor Talquist, the Cymrian Alliance finds itself in desperate straits. Rhapsody herself has joined the battle, wielding the Daystar Clarion, leaving her True Name in hiding with her infant son. Ashe tries to enlist the aid of the Sea Mages; within their Citadel of Scholarship lies the White Ivory tower, a spire that could hold the key to unraveling the full extent of Talquist's machinations.

Achmed journeys to the reportedly unassailable palace of Jierna Tal to kill emperor Talquist - all the while knowing that even if he succeeds, it may not be enough to stop the momentum of the war. As they struggle to untangle the web of Talquist's treachery, the leaders of the Cymrian alliance are met with obstacles at every turn. Rhapsody soon realizes that the end of this war will come at an unimaginable price: the lives of those she holds dearest.

    "a bit too much back story"

    I like the story and the way everything wrapped up. However, there was too much repetition of the other seven books that made it a little dry and Bland and boring when you wanted to get to what was happening instead.

    "Had to listen"

    It's the last book I saw, in the series. I couldn't imagine how it was going to have resolution. The story - after it was done- answered most questions and like the title, was a little hollow feeling. I can imagine it must be one of the greatest challenges of writers - to write a series and maintain the excitement of building a story. This final book does well enough. The entire series was absolutely great and worth the time to listen. The last book is ok but I had to listen. I'll miss the characters and hope the writer becomes inspired to write some of them into another tale - after a rest.

    Story
    "A rushed end to what started as an epic series"

    So dissapointed with this last book. It was a constant recap of the previous 6 books and so quickly tied up all the loose ends it lacked substance and depth. How many times can one book describe something ax Orgieastic? Listen to this book to find out.

    "Positive and negative feedback"

    I was glad that the ending finally wrapped up most of the situations that dangled from one book to the next. She quoted from past books way too much. Good storyline and development of the main characters. Narration much improved over first book.
