So excited to see this!

I’ve enjoyed this series for years and devoured this book as soon as it was released. I waited for the audio version and savored it like a delicious feast like Babette’s! It is totally awesome, Colin Maces narration and perfect! I only hope enough interest is shown to foster the production of the rest of the series.

Worth the wait~

This latest arc from Janny Wurts ties the loose ends for the faithful followers of the Wars of Light & Shadow. Weaving together many dangling plot lines left to speculative intrigue in the two prior volumes, Stormed Fortress, & Initiates Trial, the reader is delightfully treated to several astonishing revelations and unpredictable plot twists.
This current volume is also the first available as an audiobook. It is admirably narrated and I look forward to more high quality narration of the entire work.
If you are a Science Fantasy enthusiast new to this work I highly recommend Curse of the Mistwraith & welcome you on an exquisite literary journey.
