Publisher's Summary

Isabel reaches Karth, tormented by the influence of the Wraith Queen, and quickly becomes embroiled in the conflict between the House of Karth and the Reishi Army Regency. Before she can form any meaningful alliance with the Karth family, she must first challenge a dark and sinister power that has kept the Isle of Karth in thrall for millennia. The harsh snows of winter have arrived, stalling open warfare in Fellenden, but Zuhl presses the attack, relying on the power of his dragons to carry the day and dealing a blow to Alexander that is as devastating as it is personal. Abandoned by the love of his life, Alexander wakes among the dragons of Tyr. Bedridden by a grievous injury, he struggles with the limitations of his magic in a desperate effort to help the two people he loves most survive the winter, while also preparing his allies for the coming spring. What he discovers about the true nature of his calling might change everything.

Good story, but filled with repetitive and basic padding

The relationships and conversations between characters are so basic and child like sometimes I feel like I'm reading a book aimed at young teenagers.

Fights seem to consist of people constantly rolling to the side miraculously and dealing killing blows. With characters besting the default experienced enemy that seems to be over 6ft, weighing over 250lbs and is barrel chester, even though they only started training with weapons at the age of 14.

The world of magic was interesting at first, but very little of the mechanics behind it have been explained and this is the 5th book!

The performance has some interesting voices, but the female parts are dreadful and bring me straight out of the story. I swear some of the voices were just impressions of Gollum in this volume. In fact, in the Witches section I could have counted over 100 "voice said" in the space of 5 minutes.

The only reason I keep buying books in this series is because I just want to find out what happens.

Brilliantly captivating story line

Would you listen to Cursed Bones again? Why?

Would definitely listen to again because there is always something that you'll miss first time. Never boring.

Too many good characters. I have images of them all and i love their idiosyncrasies.

Derek Perkins.....one of the best!
