Publisher's Summary

The second instalment of Ian Irvine's dramatic epic fantasy series, The Song of the Tears.
Beset by false friends and the weight of a world's expectations, Nish flees his father, the God-Emperor - always searching for the means to orchestrate his downfall. Nish's reluctant allies are Maelys, who believes he betrayed her family; former scrutator Xervish Flydd, now stripped of power; and Colm, whom Nish owes a favour he can never repay.
If their fragile partnership survives, they may have a chance to save both themselves and their land. The group must find a hidden tower in a barren arctic wilderness and somehow convince the dread Numinator, who despises all humanity, to come to their aid.
And what of the different futures projected in the Pit of Possibilities? Can they, and should they, trust its portents? They have nothing to lose but their hope - a frail weapon in a war upon a god.

Change in Narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend it, but only if the previous Three World Series books have not been listened to. The change in narrator (all though Jack Hawkins is good) spoils the story.

What other book might you compare The Curse on the Chosen to, and why?

All of Ian Irvine's Three World Series books.

What three words best describe Jack Hawkins’s voice?

Clear, versatile and expressive

Any additional comments?

I love the Three World Series audiobooks and have listened to them over and over. Maybe that is not a good thing, because I am so used to the voice of Grant Cartwright narrating them that when I then listened to the Song Tears Trilogy with Jack Hawkins narrating the same characters giving a completely different interpretation of their voices, it spoilt it for me. Also the different pronounciation of names and places. I have also read all the books twice and will read them again.
