Finished just as it was getting interesting!

Most novels likes this, including others by this author, take the story to the end of the heroines life. This finished leaving the reader in mid-air! Not very satisfactory.

The shadow Queen.

Struggled to persevere. Seemed to be mainly a narrative, circling the same story line, with little colour or detail. I did not have a picture of these events or the characters. I found the narrator flat and irritating. I'm usually entranced by similar books. I'm sure this is not a reflection of other books by this author.

Entertainment

Was not the best of all my audiobooks but certainly entertaining. Not sure I would look for more from this author.
