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 Green Rider books are among the most well-rounded, entertaining books I have ever read. The characters are well-developed, believable, and interesting. The plot is intricate, intelligent, and unique. Kristen Britain masterfully mixes adventure, mystery, romance, humor, and a pinch of magic into a delightful concoction sure to be a hit with even the most picky readers.
