Publisher's Summary

She's fought death and won. But how can she fight her fears?
Avry knows hardship and trouble. She fought the plague and survived. She took on King Tohon and defeated him. But now her heart-mate, Kerrick, is missing, and Avry fears he's gone forever.
But there's a more immediate threat. The Skeleton King plots to claim the Fifteen Realms for his own. With armies in disarray and the dead not staying down, Avry's healing powers are needed now more than ever.
Torn between love and loyalty, Avry must choose her path carefully. For the future of her world depends on her decision....

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

While I definitely enjoy Maria V. Snyder's books, and I loved this series, this one for me fell just a bit flat in comparison. Not to say I didn't enjoy it, if you've listened to the others in the series, definitely listen to it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Maria V. Snyder? Why or why not?

Absolutely, I've thoroughly enjoyed every single one of her other books.

Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

I don't think I could pick a favorite, I think she's a wonderful narrator

Headstrong, Stubborn is NOT admirable

So sick of a Avry being willing to die to save one random stranger knowing that by doing so her death will leave their entire world without a healer - not just once but repeatedly. That's not admirable - that's criminally negligent behavior.

Also, sick of her ALWAYS thinking she knows more about military tactics than the professionals and throwing temper tantrums and stamping off to do what she thinks needs to be done and AGAIN putting herself in danger to get her way and to Hell with the needs of incoming casualties or existing patients.

Avry: Spoiled, selfish, ignorant child.

Why, why, WHY do so many authors (FEMALE authors, no less!) so often create heroines like this. A woman can be strong without being a stubborn selfish pain-in-everyone's butt.
