Publisher's Summary

In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbors accepted her, but warily.
Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally or her most dangerous foe. And when her long-gone sister, Rose, is revealed to still be alive, Thorn must make a choice - and risk her own life in the process.

let's use the entire the thesaurus!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The interesting plot, strong characterizations, and uniquely intelligent religious speculation are deeply marred by the over use and misuse of excess (and incorrectly used) "vocabulary" words. Additionally the narrator's odd, randomly breathy phrasing is beyond maddening. It's a testament to how good the book is that I was willing to suffer through the narrator's mangling the pronunciation and phrasing.I say read these books, but read them to yourself.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Gold?

Any one. Anyone at all. But I'd like to hear Luke Daniels tackle it.
