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.

The narrator did a great job! Great new adventure!
Good book,, overly dramatic reading
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.
Tempo. Inflection. Less, so very less dramatized.
