Not that bad!!

After seeing these reviews, I was really scared to listen to this. I loved the first 2 books SO MUCH! Jennifer Ikeda ruled. Why the switch!? I wish she had kept going, and I don't know why they chose someone new, but honestly? Once I got over being pissed off, it wasn't that bad! I mean, Amanda is no Jennifer, but I think she did her best. The characters were good. Lucien's brothers were fantastically evil. I just miss the overall tone of Jennifer as Feyre. I felt like I got to know her, and now it was like a completely different person.

And since this book is over 25 hours long, how were people writing reviews THE FIRST DAY IT CAME OUT!? I don't think half those people even gave the new narrator a chance. They couldn't have had the time to listen to it. So. I admit, it took a while for her to find her stride, I think, but once I got past my initial shock and dismay, and I started listening to the story itself? I was still interested, and I was still moved.

Chapter 44 - with all the high lords? And that scene with the cliff? Oh - and Lord Grayson scene with Elaine???? Come on. It was good. Admit it. Of course, you have to listen that far.

It probably sucks to step into such a popular series, so I say job well done -- even if I wish Jennifer was still doing it....

Loved it, despite new narrator (give her a chance)

I'll admit, I had a difficult time getting into this one (but loved it none-the-less). The new narration was just so different from Jennifer Ikeda -- for Feyre and Rhysand particularly. However, about a quarter of the way through, I was over it and just enjoying the story itself. Cobb did a really amazing job with the thrilling last half of the book in particular. Knowing that we have some character-focused novellas and novels coming up in the series, I know she'll do a great job with them (she nailed Cassian, Nesta, Amren, and Mor, I thought). looking forward to more Maas books narrated by Cobb (or Ikeda should she come back to the series). The fandom should definitely not fear this one. It's a great listen!

Jennifer Ikeda declined to continue with theseries

I contacted Recorded books Inc. and they said via email that Jennifer Ikeda decline to continue with the series. :(

I don't like the new narrator, but we may have no choice to get used to her.

Change narrator! PLEASE!!!!!!

This is by far my favorite series of all time. I will probably re listen to the first 2 books and only read the last book. I am SO disappointed that they changed the narrator for the last book. it honestly shouldn't be allowed in book series...... PLEASE RE DO THIS!!!!

Narrator NOT terrible. Just different.

I agree. I wish Jennifer Ikeda finished this series. But I don't think Amanda Leigh Cobb was terrible. She was just very different.

After I got over my initial frustration, I really started listening to the story itself. By the time I got to the battle and the story line with Nesta's arc? I was hooked. The scenes with Elaine are heartbreaking. I also loved Lucien's journey. And I caught myself aching for Mor during her . . . confession. (No spoilers!!)

For me, this one was less about Feyre and Rhys and more about the other characters. My heart was absolutely broken for Tamlin who I STILL think got screwed in this entire story, but that's just my opinion. I fall into the "Go, Tamlin! camp" because I don't think his actions were necessarily any more abusive than Rhys's actions under the mountain -- Anyway.

Give the STORY a chance. New narrator doesn't deserve to be raked across the coals for a decision that was not hers to make. I still enjoyed it!!!!!

Narrator Change Didn't Ruin It

I loved the first two books in the series and was looking forward to this one when I noticed that the narrator was different. I generally hate when there is a narrator change in a series told from the same perspective, especially if you are binge listening. It tends to be so distracting that it can ruin it. Luckily this narrator sounded almost identical to the previous one and did an equally excellent job. I might not have even known they were different narrators. That being said, it was a great end to a great series, well worth the listen!

Narrator

I missed hearing Jennifer Ikeda's voice in this. I like having the same narrator throughout a series plus she does male voices better.

Many complaints about a new narrator... I couldn't even tell. As expected, the book was very good.

New narrator, no worries.

I've actually never written an audible review before, but felt compelled to do so in this instance as I believe the bashing of the Narrator is unwarranted. Yes, Jennifer Ikeda did a terrific job on the previous two books. I am as disappointed as you guys. However, I don't believe Amanda Leigh Cobb deserves the negative reviews of her performance. Of course it is different from Jennifer's, they are different humans. But, it doesn't make it bad performance by any means. I hope you give it a chance, because after the first part of the book, I hardly remembered that there had even been a change and was as into the writing as ever.

Mixed review

I returned the book Bc of the voice narration but I later repurchased it and was able to deal with it.

It was a good book but entirely too long for what the ending ended up being. I feel like the beginning and middle were sooooooo drawn out but the end was quickly wrapped up with so many questions unanswered. I'm assuming that many many story lines weren't tied up or answered Bc there is another book coming out....?

I wish they worked on the ending more and honestly I've become more interested in the other characters than the main ones lol. If there is a another book in the series I look forward to more development in some characters

I've just finished this trilogy and wow, I was hooked from the word go. Excellent writing.. I shall definitely read anything else this author has written. I loved Farae's story and Rhysand too. 5 stars not quite good enough!

A Court of Wings and Ruin.

I adore this series.
I think audible is fantastic.
I almost don't want to criticise this book because I love the characters and the first two books are brilliant.
However needless to say I am so disappointed with the ending of this book! I hate the fact that Rhysand is brought back to life, he shouldn't of died in the first place! It almost seems that anyone can just die and be saved ... and the point with Feyre was that when she was made new it was special, an event that does not happen. It also makes no sense that he still only have the night court powers?
Rysands character seems to change throughout as well, he is not rude or smug with Feyre he doesn't speak to her the way he did in the first two books
and for me that was why I loved them together because they challenged each other.
Nesta and Elain play good parts in the book, and the friendship and love these three sisters have towards the end is lovely.
I will say when Feyre is undercover at the start of the book has you gripped. And when all the high lords meet and Tamlin walks in late that too has you on the edge of your seat.

I love this book , but bad move changing narrator

The thing I love about the audio books is how invested you get in the voices, emotive ways they speak etc. To change the voice in the final book... it caused me to loose all dedication to the characters. I tried but couldn't finish. I now won't buy one if the voice changed during any series. bad move :(

Meh

Nowhere near as good as the last book, although the narration may have had something to do with it, the narration was just terrible! She got the emotions all wrong. Really hope they get someone else to narrate the story, as this narrator left me feeling nothing at all except irritation.

Glimpses of greatness

This trilogy was a real mixed bag. There’s no doubt the author has a great feel for fantasy and can work a good twist, but it didn’t seem to know what it was. Part romance, part epic; at times young adult then a fall into erotica. As a listener it was easy to become disoriented. There were so many competing threads that the ending was messy, abrupt, too light. All of this said, there were really good bits. I listened to it all. I’ll be buying her next book.

Good book, didn't like the narrator

As always, the books by Sarah J. Mass are thrilling. Good story, well written. I the only thing I didn't like was the narrator - some sentences were over done i thought. The narrator from the first 2 books in this series was better, it would have been great to keep her on for the final book.
