In Janny Wurts' Sorcerer's Legacy, we discover a world full of magic and intrigue. It is into this world that Elienne has chosen to come, to save a prince's life. Lady Elienne finds herself captive in the dungeons of the one who killed her husband and conquered her lands. While there, a great wizard appears to her, offering to take her away. Does she stay and suffer certain cruelties from the one who now wants to make her his new queen...? Or does she go with this wizard who claims that she is the only one who can save his prince's life? Neither choice has much chance of her surviving, so neither choice looks good. But if she goes at least it will be by her own choice....

A Favorite Story, Well Told :-))
Yes and No.
This is one of my all time favorite single books. I tend to read series, rather than stand alone novels. I admit I was a little nervous about listening to this audio nook, as I didn't want one of my favorite ruined by a poor narrator, but Emily Gray does a good job of telling this story, so a big thank you to her for that :-))
I have read this book many times over the years (my original copy fell apart from frequent use, and had to be replaced), and of course my interpretation of the story differed slightly in places from Ms Gray's rendition, but over all I thought she brought a good sense of drama, and gave life to the various characters. I was a little surprised by her choice of voice for the character of Faisix. In my reading of the book, I had always imagined him to be smoothly menacing with a rich urbane voice, not the nasal tones that Ms Gray gave him.
I have no idea.
As I have already said, this is one of my all time favorite stand alone books. I would love to listen to one of my other all time favorites, Restoree, by Anne McCaffrey, but unfortunately that book is not included in her list of available audio books. This story was well told by Emily Gray, and I was relieved that a beloved book was not ruined by a poor narrator, as some of my other favorites have been, most notably The Necromancer series by Gail Z Martin, another of my favorites.
