She doesn’t yet know she has inherited a powerful gift, one that marks her as a member of the noble School of Pellinor and enables her to see the world as no other can. It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true identity and extraordinary destiny unfold.

    " I loved these books, and ordered the audio so I could pass the time while my eyes were sore. I've only listened to a few chapters; but I don't understand why the reader has made Cadvan speak so unnaturally. No human being would have an ordinary conversation with such slow, grim gravity. Hoping it gets better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 George | 6/12/2011

    " Really more of a 2 & 1/2 star rating. Heavily Tolkienesque but also original in its own way. An easy read. Not too graphic or dark but with a few dark themes & issues. Character building was okay & will hopefully get better as the series progresses. World building was very good. "
