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 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.

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!
