Absolutely Gripping

I enjoyed the previous two volumes in this trilogy a lot, but this final volume is absolutely gripping. Some excellent plot twists, a bravura ending, I really couldn't stop listening to this.

The density of plot in this final volume means that in some ways I would have preferred an unabridged version (at time of writing, not currently available on Audible) but after sampling both Richard Aspel's accented narration of the unabridged volumes and Kellie Bright/Samantha Bond's narration of the abridged editions I definitely preferred the latter.

I'm new to Trudi Canavan but will definitely be moving on to her next trilogy.This one has been one of my best Audible purchases.

A gripping read

I couldn't wait to get back in the car to carry on listening to this book. I wish there were more in the series after this one.
