Publisher's Summary

In Feierabiand, in the wide green Delta, far from the burning heat of the griffin's desert, Mienthe's peaceful life has been shaken. Tan - clever, cynical, and an experienced spy - has brought a deadly secret out of the neighboring country of Linularinum.
Now, as three countries and two species rush toward destruction, Mienthe fears that even her powerful cousin, Bertaud, may be neither able nor even willing to find a safe path between the secret Linularinum would kill to preserve and the desperate ferocity of the griffins.
But can Mienthe? And, in the end, will Tan help her or do everything in his power to stand in her way?

Storyline a disappointment

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I wouldn't recommend this book to others. It detracts from first two books badly. The main character Mienthe, has degenerated into an obviously mental case! The review implies that she, her powers and friends save the day, but... In fact other characters take over the storyline. It seems like the book should be billed as how these others are trying to keep Mienthe from destroying the day. It was a big disappointment in character developement. . It was like reading a headline about any misguided teen who feels their way is not only the right way but the only way & reguards to others.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Looking back at book one, it is easy to see how Mienthe degenerates as she did. More of book two should have been spent in her development. I felt like I was reading about a spoiled teen, with few limits & great power


Which character – as performed by Emily Durante – was your favorite?

She did a fair job with all the characters. It was her narration quality that had me listen thru to the end.
