Publisher's Summary

Songs of the Earth is the most compelling debut fantasy novel since Patrick Rothfuss first hit the shelves four years ago, with the stunning The Name of the Wind. Combining superb characterisation with an epic story, it is beautifully told and engaging from the very first word. Gair is under a death sentence. He can hear music - music with power - and in the Holy City that means only one thing: he's a witch, and he's going to be burnt at the stake. Even if he could escape, the Church Knights and their witch finder would be hot on his heels while his burgeoning power threatens to tear him apart from within. There is no hopeā€¦ none except a secretive order, themselves persecuted almost to destruction. If Gair can escape, if he can master his own growing, dangerous abilities, if he can find the Guardians of the Veil, then maybe he will be safe. Or maybe he'll discover that his fight has only just begun.

Would you be willing to try another book from Elspeth Cooper? Why or why not?

Yes. I did enjoy it and when and if a second book in this trilogy comes out I will probably pick it up as well.


Any additional comments?

Just like the first book in many a series this book suffers somewhat from trying to prepare us for the series and the next books. I felt like the first 90% of the book was spent world-building and setting up possible plots for the

Good start

Would you listen to Songs of the Earth again? Why?

Yes. The book started out very slow (and a bit boring) but it slowly got better and better as it progressed.


What did you like best about this story?

As the story developed I couldn't help starting to care about the different characters. How would they deal with the challenges they faced? Would they succeed? Would they at least survive? It kept me listening well into the night.
