From Forluin, green, half-fabled land of beauty and peace, has journeyed the gentle Estarinel, bearing tragic news. From the terrible Empire of Gorethria rides Ashurek; a lean and deadly warrior, once High Commander of its Armies, scourge of the Earth, hated and feared across continents. The third is known only as Medrian. Coldly wrapped in her cloak of sorrow, her eyes deep-shadowed with suffering long-endured, she will explain nothing of her reasons.
Theirs is the Quest. They must slay the great Serpent before it lays waste and utterly destroys the Earth. Together they must seek its lair in the far frozen north, battling peril and nightmare until they face the ultimate, indestructible foe.... Three warriors. An epic Quest. They are the world's last hope....
"A Blackbird in Silver brings together many favorite motifs from high fantasy, as the author notes in her preface: 'The brooding anti-hero, the gentle race forced to fight for survival, the woman of mystery. Warriors, sorcerers, demons, weird dimensions. Horses and swords! The perfect, ultimate, impossible Quest.' Yep. It's like walking up to your favorite ice-cream counter on a hot summer day and declaring, "Make me one with everything!" Recommended." (Infinity Plus)

Easy listen. Interesting characters and world.
It is different from most fantasy. You still have adventurers coming together, some seasoned, some not,but the personalities, races, world, etc don't follow the recipe for fantasy as closely as most books do.
No. I enjoyed Wyndham's performance.
No. However I enjoyed experiencing the bonding of the characters and discovering a different and interesting world setup.
I will be buying the next book in the series.
