Thrilling!

Love the whole series, can’t recommend it highly enough. I purchased the trade paperbacks as well after listening to the audiobooks, as I got hooked and wanted to delve into the story details. The series is complete - all four were written and edited together. The coordination and sense of completion is better than average as a result, yet the books maintain their separate identities. My favorite is book two, Queen of the Raiders.

I’ve read some reviews complaining about the narrator on the audiobooks. They boil down to the slow speed at which she reads a single character who appears infrequently and is only in the first book. I find this a minor aggravation at worst, and she imbues a tremendous amount of love into the characters otherwise that is charming and true to the books.

Highly recommended!

Second better than the first

It took me most of the first book to grasp characters and plot; second book was so good, I finished listening in 24 hrs! It also took me some time to like the narrator but she has grown on me like so many of the characters!

good story ..Great narrator.

ok I love that this narrator really some effort in and is t just reading blandly...she really seems to put emotion in and tries to get the right energy for each character and situation in the book.

A Chance worth Taking

An absolute adventure! Imogen Church did an excellent job performing this fast paced story. I had no trouble keeping track of characters because she was able to consistently change her voice to fit each character. I can still hear them now. Sarah Kozloff crafted a layered book of intricate characters, worlds and magic, she really outdid herself in Book 2. I absolutely loved seeing our heroine’s development. I just loved this book and immediately purchased books 3 and 4 before I even finished reading Book 2! Yes, it’s that good!

Overly dramatic and sort of silly

I liked the first book. This one was silly, almost farcical at times. There was immature love and the story was about how people who had their lands raided got mad and so they raided their persecutor’s land. It was overly dramatic in the story and in the telling. Lots of murder and death to move the plot along, versus dynamic story telling. Argh. Found myself fast forwarding through pretty much most of the second half. Oh best part, the queen puts her life in jeopardy to help the raiders in stead of taking back her kingdom. Yeah, right. Sophomoric.

Great second book

I purchased this book after reading several good reviews. I am glad I started this series. The action is a bit slow, but the character development and world building has been excellent. Lots of intrigue and politics. I just finished the second book and know I will continue to binge listen to the end of the story. The narrator's voice can be a bit irritating (particularly with male voices, but overall she does justice to the story.

Best Series I've Read in Years!

This is, hands down, the BEST fantasy/fiction series I've read in the last decade! The writing is superb, and the narration is phenomenal. Do not miss out on these four books!!!

Captivating

Great characterisation. Seeing the young Queen develop her sense of justice and talent with animals is a highlight of this book. Can’t wait til Book 3.

Good

Good story,There were a few Robin Hobbs' Character and place names used. The story reader needs to slow down and not be so breathy. Three or 4 characters sounded good, the rest sounded the same.
