Hidden at the crossroads of the world, an ancient race battles to protect humanity, even as it dies from within. Ava Matheson came to Istanbul looking for answers, but others came looking for her. A reckless warrior guards her steps, but will Malachi's own past blind him to the truth of who Ava might be? While ancient forces gather around them, both Ava and Malachi search for answers. Whispering voices. Deadly touch. Their passion should be impossible... or it could be the only thing that will keep them alive.
The Scribe is the first book in the Irin Chronicles, the new paranormal romance series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the Elemental Mysteries.

Terrific Listen, Terrific Story

This is an audio book and a superb rendition of a wonderfully creative and developed story. I swear I have a girl crush on Elzabeth Hunter and The Scribe only confirms how much I love her writing. Not only are her mythology, stories and characters crafted with intelligence and it but also I LEARN something every time I read/listen. I keep Wikipedia at the ready at all times so I can look up a name or a place that is not usually seen or heard of. The Scribe is a rich tale of magic, love, spells, beings with a special place in the world, beings who stalk them all over the world. The Scribe's primary focus is Turkey, so now I know much more about Turkey than I did when I started. What a fascinating country it is. But, foremost, it is a tale of the connection between Malachi and Ava...a connection that reaches into each of their souls and hearts to pull them together, never to be apart emotionally. Y'all know I am a visceral reviewer and while I am thrilled for the smartness of Ms Hunter's writing, I am also riveted to the story with my heart. And filled with affection for the Band of Scribes that is fighting desperately to keep themselves together following a catastrophic "Rending" where so many of their 'kind' were killed. It's a deeply moving book because of the beauty of the story, the solidness of the characters and the promise of more to come.

The narration by Zachary Webber is, honestly, riveting. He is able to be all characters without being the same sound. I had not been very familiar with him before but I will be seeking out books that he narrates from here on out. He is marvelous.

Hooked! Enthralling story, exceptional narration.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Malachi for sure. He was everything a male romantic lead should be: strong, fiercely protective, loving, and mysterious. I would be amiss however to not mention Malachi's loyal friend, Rhys. I am a sucker for Hunter's inclusion of the charmingly adorable though shamelessly flirty English chap. I consider Rhys the reincarnation of Carwyn from Hunter's Elemental Mysteries/World books.

What about Zachary Webber’s performance did you like?

In a word: exceptional. I would listen to Zachary Webber read the phone book. I have listened to a lot of audio books and I would say I am biased towards books performed by women. Webber changed my opinion. I was so taken by his performance that I sought out and listened to other books narrated by him.

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

Absolutely. The pace was great with the attraction and build up of the romance. It was sexy and delivered without being overly graphic. It is nice to read a romance with a captivating story where a couple interludes satisfied without it being about sex, sex, and more sex.

Any additional comments?

I have read Hunter's Elemental Mysteries series. I enjoyed those books, but the Irin Chronicles are my favourite by far. I wish I could forget this book and experience the joy of my first read of The Scribe again.

yes and no

Any additional comments?

love the performance! amazing voice throughout and the characters really came to life.
The story was a bit slow at times and doesn't push me to read the next volume.
Ends on massive cliffhanger as well.

Loved it!

I cannot wait to download the second audiobook in this series. Even though I downloaded the book to read when I'm at home I would find myself listening to the audio version instead. Zachary Webber really pulled me in with his voice and his amazing ability to shift into different accents with ease.
