Publisher's Summary

King Baryn has decided that if he marries his daughter Amalie to a high-ranking noble, the rebellious marlords might be pacified and he might be able to avert a war. So he invites all the young serramar to the royal city to court his daughter. To protect Amalie from any unsavory suitors, the mystic Cammon is installed to monitor all of Amalie's courtships, because Cammon is a reader who can tell if someone harbors violence or malevolence in his heart. Much to the dismay of her advisors, Amalie begins to fall in love with the wholly unsuitable Cammon. Even worse, war comes to Gillengaria anyway, and Amalie can only be kept safe through the combined efforts of the Riders, the mystics - and the wild raelynx that has mystical powers of its own. BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Sharon Shinn.

Great Listen

I loved this series so much I hated to see it end. It took sometime to get used to the new narrator, Joe Barrett -- and I have to admit, I never did warm to his interpretation of Kira, but I was able to over-look it. The story was so engaging and the battle at the end was great. I hope Sharon Shinn continues to write for the main characters, and that Audible gets more of her work soon. Highly recommended..

Loved it!

This is a delightful book. Exciting, imaginative, beautifully written, and wonderfully narrated. The worst part of this book was that it came to an end. I really will miss these characters. I enjoyed all the Mystic and Rider books, but this one was even more exceptional.

What Accent Is That Supposed To Be??

Would you listen to Reader and Raelynx again? Why?

Yes. I have read the book several times, and I will definitely listen to this again. The only thing that spoils it slightly, is the ridiculous accent Joe Barrett gives to the character of Cammon. The story is superb.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Reader and Raelynx?

All of it :-))

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Lose the silly accent he assigned to the main character of this book in the series, Cammon.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

No idea.

Any additional comments?

I have loved these books for years. I love the characters, and the action is wonderfully done.
