As they search for a group of kidnapped children who have the gift of chantment, they must negotiate both the unforgiving desert and the even more treacherous Palace of cobwebs, where they uncover the dreadful secret that holds the Empire together. Meanwhile, Darrow has broken away from the group to form a new alliance of his own. Can he still be trusted?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawnetta | 2/9/2014

    " I really like the creation of magic in these books, rather than it just happening it is an manipulation of the elements around you. These are a fun read with adventure and a bit of romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sallie | 2/5/2014

    " Very intriguing. It was about as good as the first book. I can't wait to read the third book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ayume | 2/2/2014

    " i couldnt really understand the story though.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/25/2014

    " I loved and hated this book. Because it't the middle of a trilogy it leaves you hanging...ugh! Well thank goodness the library has the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kassandra | 1/21/2014

    " This book was truly amazing, in my opinion. I liked how it referred to the vast expansion of sand as a 'waterless sea'. It was really deep. It made me think a lot. Some parts were hard to understand, but it was okay. The plot was very adventurous, and not very predictable. I liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 1/19/2014

    " Highly enjoyed reading this book. I don't consider it exactly EPIC, but its still in my top 25 best books of all times "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/13/2014

    " I liked this second book in the series better than the first. It certainly kept my attention better, and with its cliffhanger ending I'm looking forward to the third in the series. Nothing really super engaging about the story, just interesting and I'm getting more connected to the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hope | 1/10/2014

    " The story is OK - not as interesting yet as the first book in the series. The reader is OK, but a bit too given to strange accents for a couple of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/9/2014

    " This is a great series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/30/2013

    " I was not disapointed with the sequel. I was a little confused at the tension and strane that was batrayed in Darrow and Calwyin's relationship. I felt like I missed something between the first book and this one and maybe I did. There is a tackful kiss in this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candi | 12/24/2013

    " See review of The Singer of All Songs "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 12/22/2013

    " It's a good story of magic and finding a way to save people. I liked the books a lot "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 12/9/2013

    " Kate Constable does an excellent job of developing the characters from The Singer of All Songs. I actually enjoyed this book more than the first book in the trilogy; Constable seems more comfortable with the world and the characters. I look forward to reading the third book of the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 12/9/2013

    " I think I liked this one better than the first, more cohesive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah H. | 12/8/2013

    " Much better than the first one-the stakes seemed much higher. I forgot I was reading it for research, and really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Summer Peterson | 10/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this book better than the first book. I listened to both on cd and really enjoyed the sound effects and voices. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 10/7/2013

    " Second in the series. Decent, but dragged a bit. It had a story, but felt more like the set-up for the end book that it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sassy | 7/31/2013

    " I really like this whole trilogy. In the second book, I really appreciated the importance of setting and the way it has such a huge impact on the characters' different abilities to function and the way they relate to each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kylie | 7/27/2012

    " The Waterless Sea wasn't as great as The Singer of All Songs, but I still loved it! The drama between Calwyn and Darrow is a little dramatic, but I don't mind it. There's not much else that I remember- I will update my review after rereading it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/23/2012

    " This fantasy, the second part of a triology, is probably a 3.5 for me. It is really well written, but it is still a bridge novel between the other two books. I've read it twice and found it slower and less interesting than the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/19/2012

    " Better than the first book, to my mind. Smoothly written, and I think the characterization was well done. Not remarkable, but well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linwe | 11/17/2011

    " Strong second volume in the series, increases knowledge of the world created in the first volume. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerra | 9/3/2011

    " im not really into fantasy, but these were awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia | 9/2/2011

    " This series is excellent. Recommended for young and old. The characters are wonderful, Calwin is a fantastic hero and the story is a rollicking good tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/29/2011

    " Much better than the first one-the stakes seemed much higher. I forgot I was reading it for research, and really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 4/18/2011

    " I was not disapointed with the sequel. I was a little confused at the tension and strane that was batrayed in Darrow and Calwyin's relationship. I felt like I missed something between the first book and this one and maybe I did. There is a tackful kiss in this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilsa | 4/5/2011

    " Not as good as the first, it didn't hold that much excitement for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 4/2/2011

    " It's a good story of magic and finding a way to save people. I liked the books a lot "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 3/21/2011

    " It was just as good as the first and the did a good job of continuing the story without ruining the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 10/18/2010

    " This is a great series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/12/2010

    " The suspense is killing me. Sometimes I really don't like book 2s in trilogies. The first is good by itself, but you can't finish the second without immediately needing the last one to finish of the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ayume | 10/10/2010

    " i couldnt really understand the story though.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melia | 7/26/2010

    " Confusing in the beginning but got better towards the middle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 7/17/2010

    " Couldn't put it down! I hope this writer has a LONG and successful life as a writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 7/10/2010

    " 3.5 stars. A good sequel, although it would be nice to have a new villain instead of resurrecting the villain from the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 6/27/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book, too! It's nice to read books with an original story line that isn't 100% predictable... "
