Publisher's Summary

In the scourged kingdoms of Mirrowen, little hope survives.
Rumors stir of a hidden child who can stop the devastating plagues — and the race to find her has begun. The ruthless ruler of Kenatos, the Arch-Rike, and the people pledged to stopping him will do anything to make sure they’re the ones to reach her first.
Because even though young Phae may be unaware that she is the long-lost daughter of Tyrus — the Arch-Rike’s rival — there is no mistaking her gift. She not only wields the dangerous fireblood, but she can also steal the memories of anyone who looks into her eyes. Both Fireblood and Dryad-born, she alone can survive the Scourgelands long enough to learn the secrets hidden within the oaks — secrets that may reveal the origins of the plagues…and how to fight them.
Now Phae must learn to accept her newfound destiny or forever fear the steadfast evil of the Arch-Rike.

Good story - worst narrator ever!

The story is interesting and different from the usual sword and sorcery books which is why I put up with the execrable narrator. I was expecting her to suddenly yell 'and LASHINGS of GINGER beer' at any moment.
The cadence of the narration was awful with frequent emphasis on the wrong words and a real jumble of downright dumb accents poorly realised. The first book was narrated by a much better narrator and I am sorry that they changed for this volume.
I can only hope that they change again for the third volume or I don't think I will be able to put up with it and will never hear the end of the story, although I will probably buy it in written word because, again, the story is really good!
I suggest Ms Pitkin would make a great job of narrating the Famous Five books.

Needed a copy editor!

The story is good, Sue Pitkin gets the intonation wrong a lot though, making it difficult to listen to.

This would really have benefitted from the attentions of a good copy editor, or even a proof reader. Repeating words twice in a sentence & misquoting famous sayings demonstrated a lack of attention to detail.
