Publisher's Summary

"Caenthell will stay buried, and the North will not rise again until I freely offer my sword to a true descendant of the High Kings, or until one takes it from my dying hands!"
With this curse, the Warlock Malessar destroyed Caenthell. The bloodline of the High Kings disappeared and the kingdom faded into dark legend until even stories of the deed lost their power. But now there is an heir to the North.
Cassia hopes to make her reputation as a storyteller by witnessing a hardened soldier and a heroic princeling defeat Malessar and his foul curse. But neither of her companions are exactly as they appear, and the truth lies deep within stories that have been buried for centuries.
As Cassia learns secrets both soldier and warlock have kept hidden since the fall of Caenthell, she discovers she can no longer merely bear witness. Cassia must become part of the story; she must choose a side and join the battle.
The North will rise again.

Would you listen to The Heir to the North again? Why?

Maybe. It was pretty good a true fantasy story

I liked Cassia

The fight scene at the end with Baum and Melasser

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was about 15 hours. I am not sure i could do it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I receive this book from audio boom for an honest review. if you love fantasy then this book is for you. The start was a little slow but once it got started it was WOW. The story is about Cassia, who wants to be a story teller and she gets involved with Baum and Meredith who's mission is to bring back the North and the High King that was destroyed by an evil warlock, named Melasser. But things are not always what they seem. This book has a surprise ending to this adventure. But the adventure is not over. I look forward to reading the next adventure in this tale.

An excellently detailed book, slow to start...

If you could sum up The Heir to the North in three words, what would they be?

Hmmmm..... Excellent Kings Fantasy

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heir to the North?

The trip to the north, out of many that were very memorable, this one caught my attention the most. It is them on the trail while the old leader is giving back story/history on the scenery which gave the world a sense of a full and complete development.

Which character – as performed by Diana Croft – was your favorite?

This is a tough one..... I would have to say Cassia. She goes through a great arc of character development and progression throughout the journey as she tries to help reestablish the king of the north. She overcomes great diversity and is portrayed in a way that many women are not portrayed in stories about King's.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were definitely parts that made me laugh out loud and the fact that they have a character that doesn't quite get sarcasm makes for a fun environment of humor in what is a hard journey.
