Publisher's Summary

Moon, once a solitary wanderer, has become consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud court. Together, they travel with their people on a pair of flying ships in hopes of finding a new home for their colony. Moon finally feels like he’s found a tribe where he belongs. But when the travelers reach the ancestral home of Indigo Cloud, shrouded within the trunk of a mountain-sized tree, they discover a blight infecting its core. Nearby they find the remains of the invaders who may be responsible, as well as evidence of a devastating theft. This discovery sends Moon and the hunters of Indigo Cloud on a quest for the heartstone of the tree - a quest that will lead them far away, across the Serpent Sea.
In this followup to The Cloud Roads, Martha Wells returns with a world-spanning odyssey, a mystery that only provokes more questions and the adventure of a lifetime.

Martha Wells world is exciting, beautiful and intriguing. Christopher Kipiniak makes the story come to life. His performance in this and the next two books make for some exciting Sci Fi and Fantasy that is like nothing else to which I have listened. A+ to the entire series.

A different type of fantasy.

So, I went into this series not expecting much at all. To be honest, I was expecting something written badly but I was pleasantly surprised. So here we go:

-At first, I did not like the narrator and thought his voices where corny, but he grew on me and I ended up enjoying him

- The book was actually pretty clever and overall, it was very different from other things I have read.

- I feel that there needs to be more to this series, it does not seem to have an end. This is a good thing!
