Publisher's Summary

The Stormriders land their splendid winged stallions on the airy battlements of Isse Tower. Far below, the superstitious servants who dwell in the fortress' lower depths tell ghastly tales of evil creatures inhabiting the world outside, a world they have only glimpsed. Yet it is the least of the lowly, a mute, scarred, and utterly despised foundling, who dares to scale the Tower, sneak aboard a Windship, and then dive from the sky.

Great listening

Having already physically read this book and all her others I had looked forward to listening to it. I was not disappointed, I found the reader easy to listen to, I was also eager to hear how some of the words used were pronounced. I think Cecilia has put a lot of research into her storyline and takes the reader on a fascinating journey. Her descriptions may be long and boring to some but I find they enable me to picture in my mind what she is describing. They also put you there in the story. I hope that we will have all her books available on audible soon.
Audible I hope you will get the 3rd book in this series and also her Crowthistle Chronicles. Pure escapism for me.

- Colleen

Cat - I love this series!!!

This is a great audiobook, the narrator is not bad, she occasionally stumbles over some of the words but those tend to be made up by the author so nothing is lost in the interpretation.

In response to another review I just wanted to say she does actually pronounce those words correctly ie demesne IS actually pronounced di-mayn NOT de-mes-ne so when she mentions the 'di-mayns' of the stormriders she is absolutely correct. Gramarye ('grammerie') is the authors reference to magic and the occult.

For those that love celtic/scottish myths and legends you will love this book, it is a little slow to get into but once past that it is fantastic, I have listened to and read the books multiple times!
