I had a few issues with this book. The first was the terminology for some of the magic, that they call zipping and vanishing. Some parts of the book seemed rushed as well, and the logic of some of the characters are confusing. This is a short book even though it is supposed to be three in one volume. You will most likely guess the ending well before the end of the book as well.
The narration is alright. The narrator does not use different tones of voices or anything, so it sounds off when someone "rasps" something or speaks with an accent. She has a pleasant voice to listen to so I still gave her four stars.
I will not listen to this again. Not that it was really bad, but it was really simple, and not complex enough to hold my attention.

It has some points to work on. My main issue became the fact that much of the book is from a male characters perspective. But the female narrator had a hard time doing a male voice. It took me a while to get used to it.
Story wise I loved the world it took place in. But the plot felt a bit rushed at times. I primarily felt this with how frequently large chunks of time passed. A journey across the land feels over before it has begun. I often found myself second guessing if the characters journey/training/mission was actually over or not because it would just suddenly be at it's end.
Otherwise I really enjoyed the books. Despite using a well known theme of people controlling the elements as part of their race, the author really made this theme their own. I don't think I could accurately compare it to anything else that has used the theme before. .
I would actually really enjoy seeing a book that touches on some of the lesser seen parts of the series. The extinct fire porters. The unseen homeland of the air people. The original war that started the mess that is being resolved in this series. All would be great to see more of in a partner series.
