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 story! Terrible narration.
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.
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.
