Great story, okay performance

If you could sum up Squire in three words, what would they be?

Really awesome storyline.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nealan of Queenscove will always be my favorite. I love the relationship he has with Kel, where they have each other's backs no matter what.

Did Bernadette Dunne do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

This is the one thing I didn't like. Yes, Bernadette Dunne did a good job differentiating the characters from one another. However, I didn't enjoy the voice she used for Kel. It was kind of nasally and I didn't think it would be the kind of voice that a girl between the ages of 14 and 18 would have. That could just be a personal preference.

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

Yes, but unfortunately I couldn't. As with any audiobook, it was simply too long.

Any additional comments?

It's a really good story, with a really strong female protagonist. I highly recommend it.

Love it!

This is series has become my favored in all of Tamora Pierce’s works. It’s a joy to go back and read over and over again.

Bernadette Dunn did a magnificent job narrating a wonderful story. I thoroughly recommend this audiobook.

My favorite in the quartet!

This books moves along at a brisk pace and is so full of action. While the two earlier books seem a little more juvenile, this book tends to have more of the adult feel of Tamora Pierce's later novels. There is a decent amount of humor and fun to be had, as well as lots of character development and story.

The narrator's performance is very good and moves at a brisk pace. I also like the voice selections for the different characters.

Great "read"

the narrator continues to do a fabulous job on this series! some of the storylines were tied up and I was seriously wondering how it could be carried over into a fourth book. and now I know - and can't wait to read it!

I have loved Tamora Pierce's works since I was a child and this is one of the books I always come back to. Lots of love for Kel and her friends, and all the messes she gets into.
