Publisher's Summary

Rhapsody, n (1542). 1: a portion of an epic poem adapted for recitation. 2, archaic: a miscellaneous collection. 3 a (1): a highly emotional utterance (2): a highly emotional literary work (3): effusively rapturous or extravagant discourse b: rapture, ecstasy. 4: a musical composition of irregular form having an improvisatory character.
Elizabeth Haydon is a major new force in fantasy. Equipped with a quick wit, Haydon has a sharp ear for dialogue, panache with characters, and that essential ability to transport her readers into her own fantastical world--a world so real you can hear the sweet music of Rhapsody's aubade and smell the smoldering forges within the Cauldron.
Rhapsody is a woman, a singer of some talent who is swept up into events of world-shattering import. On the run from an old romantic interest who won't take no for an answer, Rhapsody literally bumps into a couple of shady characters: half breeds who come to her rescue in the nick of time. Only the rescue turns into an abduction, and Rhapsody soon finds herself dragged along on an epic voyage--one that spans centuries and ranges across a wonder-filled fantasy world.

Good book,, overly dramatic reading

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Looked forward to hearing this book after a long time from reading it. The narrator has an off putting way of drawing out words. His tempo or maybe inflection just doesn't quite hit the ear right, personally. It's a good book that starts a series by Hayden that's impressive, but it falls short here.

How could the performance have been better?

Tempo. Inflection. Less, so very less dramatized.

Good story! Terrible narration.

If you could sum up Rhapsody in three words, what would they be?


Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin T. Collins’s performances?

I will NEVER listen to another book narrated by him. He did okay with dialog but his narration was so dramatic that I had a hard time following the story. Dramatic narration is fine when actually called for but not in all the descriptive passages. I recommend listening to the preview before purchasing the audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I would have given this a 5 star rating since I loved the book when I read it years ago and was looking forward to hearing it but the narration was so dramatic I gave up after six chapters. Terribly disappointed.
