Publisher's Summary

Warriors. Lovers. Enemies. Legends.
Their union became pivotal in Irin history, but to understand Damien and Sari's ending, you must go back to their beginning. Four hundred years ago, a young singer and a hardened warrior met and loved each other, but their life was torn apart by violence.
But no matter how much pain and anger stain their lives, bonds in the Irin race cannot be abandoned. Damien and Sari will never truly leave each other, because those who are destined cannot be ignored.
The Staff and the Blade is the fourth book in the Irin Chronicles.

Love and time!

The Staff and The Blade is Damien and Sari’s story. The book takes you back to the beginning of their relationship, the reason for their separation and hurt feelings, through Ava’s meeting the fabled Irina, and Damien’s family. The story is an extraordinary tale of guilt, love, happiness, battles, pain, revenge, and joy. The characters are believable. You’ll laugh and cry. Jay Britton did a good job. I turned the speed of the audiobook to 1.25x since the pauses between each sentence wasn’t to my liking (personal preference not to be used to dissuade other buyers) I wish however that since Zachary Webber started the series he could have narrated this book too. I’m a listener who devours series and when narrators change halfway through with different voices for the same characters in previous books it’s very annoying and dissatisfying.

Love the book but hate the audiobook

I enjoyed the reader from the first few books in the series but this guy lacks warmth and almost sounds robotic. I would not recommend this recording at all, just buy the book and read it for yourself.

Narrator was too wooden.

im sure its a fantastic book thoroughly enjoyed the first three. but just couldnt get on with this narrator. having been previously spoiled with Zachary Webber the performance here was just very wooden and actually sounded like he was just reading a book. very dissapointed. have returned.
