Publisher's Summary

With no magic talent of her own, Anne de Vernase must take on her sister's magical legacy to unravel the secrets behind the dark sorcery besieging the royal city of Merona-and to uncover the truth behind her sister's death. For Portier de Savin-Duplais, failed student of magic, sorcery's decline into ambiguity and cheap illusion is but a culmination of life's bitter disappointments. Reduced to tending the library at Sabria's last collegia magica, he fights off despair with scholarship. But when the king of Sabria charges him to investigate an attempted murder that has disturbing magical resonances, Portier believes his dreams of a greater destiny might at last be fulfilled. As the king's new agente confide, Portier - much to his dismay - is partnered with the popinjay Ilario de Sylvae, the laughingstock of Sabria's court. Then the need to infiltrate a magical cabal leads Portier to Dante, a brooding, brilliant young sorcerer whose heretical ideas and penchant for violence threaten to expose the investigation before it's begun. But in an ever-shifting landscape of murders, betrayals, old secrets, and unholy sorcery, the three agentes will be forced to test the boundaries of magic, nature, and the divine...

Excellent Story!

The Soul Mirror is the second book in the Collegia Magica trilogy, but stands well on its own. Indeed, I failed to note that this was the second and had not read (or listened) to the first book, but I at no time floundered with what was going on. In fact, I think I probably enjoyed the suspense more due to not being over familiar with the characters introduced in the first book. I thoroughly enjoyed Angele Masters performance. She has a lovely voice and was well able to tackle the male characters smoothly without the jarring that some other narrators cause when attempting to read a character not of their own gender. I'm looking forward to listening to the third book in this trilogy ( The Daemon Prism) and then will likely go back and tackle the first. Give this a go - you won't be disappointed!

A frustrating listen

The story was entertaining, if not earth shattering. Honestly I think I would have liked this book better had I read it myself. While the narrator's voice wasn't bad (if a bit flat), her pronunciation was terrible (Especially considering the narrator of the first book was quite good). The biggest example is the word "mage." In Brit or American English it has a single pronunciation, and if she was trying to use the french pronunciation, even that was wrong. Considering how often the word "mage" is used, it's incredibly grating. Then there are the inconsistencies in pronunciation from book to book of character and place names. The editors on this audio didn't do their job.
If poor pronunciation drives you to distraction, give this one a pass.
