When I first began listening to this series I wasn't sure I liked it .... It's a good story line that is well thought out and overall I was entertained ... but it's not a story that will task or engage the reader / listener much. Doesn't compete with other top notch series.
I ended up purchasing / listening to all 3 books in the series, however I don't believe I'll ever call this one of my favorites.
1- Overall few surprises or ah ha! moments ... somewhat predictable
2- Character development seems rushed pretty much across the board
3- Narration took some getting used do ... I couldn't decide if it is the way the book is written or the narrators style but I often felt as if I was sitting in a 2nd grade class

I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy!
The narration is SUPERB!! The myriad characters each have a life and vitality of their own .... Just superb!!!
The morality of the story makes it a must read for the pre and early-teen reader ... A modern Eosops Fables for today's youth.

The last part of The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey lives up to the calibre of the other two books. I had been eagerly awaiting its availability as a talking book and was not disappointed. Susan Ericksen is excellent as a reader, maintaining a consistency of voices throughout the series.
One always expects Good to prevail, but at times this seemed quite improbable, and the Elven warriors and their allies are sorely tried. The army moves across Elven and Wild Lands, struggling against the servants of the Demons. Dragons, elves, Centaurs, Wild and High Magic - it's all there. An enchanting listen!
