Publisher's Summary

When a battle with death-dealing Skinners catapults Daine and her mentor, Numair, into the divine realms, the riddles of Daine’s past finally begin to reveal themselves. However, the pair must return to their beloved Tortall, for the kingdom is under attack and survival depends on Daine’s wild magic.

A harrowing journey across the divine realms leads Daine and Numair through danger to dragons; to a breathtaking confrontation with their great enemy Ozorne; and finally brings Daine face to face with the Great Gods, who will force the girl to make the most important decision of her life.

Filled with breathtaking peril, lightened by deft moments of comedy (wait till you meet the darkings!), The Realms of the Gods is a fitting conclusion to one of the great fantasy series of our time. An exclusive interview with Tamora Pierce about writing The Immortals Quartet concludes the recording.

Critic Reviews

"The fast-paced, violent action is leavened by bits of humor as well as the blossoming romance between Daine and Numair. All in all, a satisfying ending to an appealing saga." ( Booklist)

Great Young Adult listen

My children and I listened to this story together, and the kids didn't want to leave the car! This book is a continuation of the Immortals series by Tamora Pierce, and really should be listened to after the other 3 if you wish to completely understand it. It is performed by full cast audio, who's performances I really enjoy . If you haven't listened to a full cast audio performance, it is a different listening experience and takes a bit to get used to, but you will grow to really enjoy them.

Speed up playback!

Good story, full cast was fun, it sounded odd until I changed the playback speed to 1.25x. After that I enjoyed it immensely!

Another fantastic tail/tale!

Another adventure that weaves it's magic spell and draws the reader into another realm! I especially enjoyed the author's commentary at the end. A real treat!

Love this author

This is probably the fourth time I have listen to this book in the series and I have thoroughly enjoyed it each and every time. I recommend this for young adult women.

A Good Conclusion

I am satisfied with the book's conclusion, or at least my teenager self was when I first read it something-years-ago. I was always alright with Tamora's narration because it was supplemented by a full cast of other narrators. I was always happy to have Numair get the spotlight whenever possible, haha! Maybe that's why I was okay with the book and with how long Numair and Daine spend in the Divine Realms. This is the case of the performance saving the book for me. Yes, it was well written as usual, but there were some glaring problems--the biggest being that problems only seemed to be glossed over instead of properly concluded within the text. However, I have a soft spot for this series, and am willing to overlook some things. Overall, I'm happy that I started and ended this journey.

Narration is awful

I dearly love this book and this author, however, she is a writer and not a voice actor. The person who voices Daine is awful. I listen to audiobooks with headphones at work and every other line that the actress delivers is in a jarring shriek.

Loved as always.

Favorite author, her books never get old. Diane has been my go to character since I was young. I was drawn to the character because she is always in flux. she may not always not the changes with grace but she evolves eventually.

Mind opening

Another great book by Tamora Pierce. It really made me think and open my eyes to things I had forgotten about. A great reread and inspiration for things in the future.

Worst of this series

As a rule, I love Tamora pierce books. There are a few exceptions, but this series wasn't one of them. It started great, but the books steadily declined in my opinion. I loved books one and two, but I found myself skipping parts of book three, and I honestly had to struggle to finish book four, though the ending was nicely done. The full cast performance was amazing of course, and it was easily the best part of it.

Amazing story

Like all Tamora Pierce's books, this was one epic adventure, and was performed beautifully. I love that she narrates and I love that they asked her about her writing at the end. I fangirled hard haha. Her stories are the reason I love fantasy so dearly.

The only downside to this particular series is that a line is crossed between teacher and student. It doesn't matter that she's older now, he was always a power over her and that's not okay.
