Imaginative, unpredictable and absorbing

I must admit I purchased this trilogy simply because Samuel West is a superb reader and his choice of novels hasn't let me down yet. And here's another great story, this time written with young teens in mind but absorbing for adults too. The Audible description doesn't make it sound that interesting but it's a highly imaginative tale of a city/civilisation under attack and of the girl & boy twins (Kestrel and Bowman) who set out to save their city and people. It's an adventure story with a strong mystical undercurrent. What I liked most was that each twist in the tale was unpredictable, particularly when the twins got themselves into Perils-of-Pauline situations.

Each of these books can be read as a stand-alone, but it's definitely worthwhile listening to them all in sequence (The Wind Singer; Slaves of The Mastery; Firesong) to find out what happens to all the different characters. Samuel West, as usual, does a brilliant job with his narration.

Loved the trilogy

I hadnt read these books and came across a recommendation.
I simply adored them - buying Books 2 & 3 before I was half way through book 1 - and listened to them all one after the other.
Samuel West is brilliant - he has a wonderful voice and gave the story a perfect delivery.
Highly, highly recommended!
