in way of performance, having listened to the other books in this series read by Ellen, it was jarring for the first few chapters. Her reading felt unnatural at first, probably due to how long it's been since the last book. She seems to be shouting the first few chapters, and the voices for characters mechanical and lifeless. However!!! That is only the first few chapters, and she quickly finds her way. Her captivating voice once more was able to paint a vivid picture of the king, his riders, and his enemies. Don't be discouraged and stop listening, give it time and it'll be just as grand of a reading as the other Green Rider books.
ps. Her singing voice is lovely and makes me smile every time.
As far as the content of the book, it is a much better addition to the series than the last. It felt right at home, and everything felt like it had meaning and a place unlike the last book that basically rendered 90% of itself useless by the last chapter. The story flowed and was significantly better.

The whole series is brilliant and a great example of a series with a strong female protagonist that wields the sword herself, doesn't need skimpy outfits to garner praise and attraction, and does what needs doing without whining. I love this series and want my daughter to read it someday.
