I am a big fan of this series and I was very much looking forward to the new installment. The last installment wasn't my favorite and the author seems to be moving away from the village and its people more and more. I recently listened to Wicked Autumn (book 1) again, so the contrast is striking. I can't even believe that this is the same author.
This book was a rambling mess devoid of all charm that existed in the previous books. None of the characters from the village make an appearance. We get to hear Awena speak only a couple of times for maybe a minute and it doesn't even resemble the character. Max Tudor spends most of the book in inner monologue mode. Going on and on about everything and all of it adds up to nothing. This might be the last Tudor book for me. I will wait and read reviews before I waste a credit.

Michael Page, the narrator, does a great job, He raises the quality of the book dramatically.. And the first 3/4 of the book was solid. The characters were for the most part well defined. Unfortunately, I found the ending very unsatisfactory. It felt as if the author suddenly had enough pages,needed to end the book and had no idea how to do that
I want a mystery to challenge my thought process and at the end I want to see the logic of how the author pulled all the strings together. Don't just throw the end together and toss in some last minute facts to justify the choice. That is an insult to the reader.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If you like the series this one is not as good as previous stories although the conclusion is enjoyable. Somehow this one doesn't have the gusto & magnetism of the others. Too cumbersome with nothing much to raise the suspense.
I am sorry to be so harsh but this is not up to the standard of the 5 preceding books
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The end was most interesting but the lead to it was slow & laborious.
What does Michael Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Lovely voice, for me just right for Max & the other voices are fine. Just makes you forget it's all one person reading.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
The promise of the next book given at the end of this one hopefully indicates a return the previous form
