Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author Mindee Arnett thrusts listeners into a beautiful, dangerous, and magical world in this stunningly epic and romantic fantasy for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sarah Raasch.

They call her Traitor Kate. It’s a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king of Rime.

Cast out of the nobility, Kate now works for the royal courier service. Only the most skilled ride for the Relay and only the fastest survive, for when night falls, the drakes - deadly flightless dragons - come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: She is a wilder, born with forbidden magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. 

And it’s this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by drakes in broad daylight - the only survivor Corwin Tormaine, the son of the king. Her first love, the boy she swore to forget after he condemned her father to death.

With their paths once more entangled, Kate and Corwin must put the past behind them to face this new threat and an even darker menace stirring in the kingdom.

Entertaining story

Not the best book I've ever read but it's far from the worst. Its enjoyable, fun and fast paced. The story is enjoyable enough to anticipate the next installment but not so great that I will lay awake wondering about what happens next.

Fantastic.

I am very picky about what books I like. I loved this book. The narrator is one of my favorites, which certainly factored into my decision to listen to this book, but the story itself was wonderful by itself. The differing viewpoints of Kate and Corwin made for a more detailed experience of the world and showed both sides of a very complicated story.

My favorite part, however, is how Kate and Corwin communicated with one another. There were no miscommunications that led to easily resolvable conflicts, like what you see in so many YA books, and the fact that they are willing to be honest with one another is so, so refreshing. And the way Corwin respects Kate and her decisions- it is so hard to find relationships like this anymore. I truly appreciated their dynamic.

I am more than looking forward to the sequel.

I Want Another

This was a riveting story, fast paced and fun. The characters were interesting, if a bit annoying. Over all, I enjoyed it.

This was a great start!!

It has been quite awhile since I've really gotten into an audio book but Onyx & Ivory did it!!! I only wish the whole series was out now.

Interesting story

I went into this not expecting much as I have recently gone off YA, this came with a Fairyloot box so I thought I'd better see what it is like. It was a lot better than I expected. I loved the different story lines and I loved Kate. I don't think I will carry on with the series though. Also I think the narrator did a very good job.
