Please continue this series!

What made the experience of listening to The Traitor Queen the most enjoyable?

Watching the characters develop over the six books in the two series was the most enjoyable. Each book had four separate stories intertwined which kept the listener involved and concerned about the characters

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sonea, the main character was my favourite as you'd expect, her sense of right, self doubt and belief in the Guild made her stand out above the rest. Despite her punishment for practicing black magic she held no malice towards the Guild and doesn't realise the respect she has from other magicians.

Have you listened to any of Richard Aspel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Richard is the narrator for all six books in the two series and is very easy to listen too. It's surprising to have a man doing the voices for the main female character but he is so convincing and the voices he gives to each character add to their authenticity.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have listened to many books, usually whilst travelling and not many have made me want to set off as soon as possible and put the audio book on..... I've even avoided taking phone calls whilst listening to the book.

Any additional comments?

What do I do now I have finished these books and there are no more with the same characters, I feel that they have become friends and I won't be seeing them again. I hope the author continues the series with the younger magicians that have been introduced.

Good but.....

This could have been so much better. Trudi Canavan is not a brilliant writer but she's not that bad either. This book was filled with missed opportunity. Many of the themes have been lifted from previous characters, and some of the story lines are incomplete. The ending was satisfactory but could have been better. Would I recommend this to others? Yes. But if you are looking for a thrilling ride you won't get it from this book.
