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.

The narrator did a great job! Great new adventure!

I don't understand the complaints on the narrator. He did a good job! Believe me. I've listened to over 420 audio books and omg! There are bad narrators. This man isn't!! He doesn't ruin the story. I almost didn't buy the book because of the complaints on him but the books got such wonderful reviews. I took a chance. I'm so glad I did. Don't judge a book by the reviews of just the narrator! I hope he continues thru the series! I'm buying the series and off on a new adventure!
