Great story, acceptably read

This series is easily one of my favorites from the author. It combines a compelling magical world with just enough of a first-contact story to satisfy my other preference.

The narration is nice, but I submit that it would not have been necessary to read every single OCR mistake without questioning it.

Strong finish

A very strong finish to a series that had a weak start, at least as far as the narration. Karen White really turned her narrative abilities on this story around between the first book which had me questioning if I could finish the series and the last.

The story its self is the completion of the story of grown up Elspeth, heir. She changed throughout the whole of the trilogy and began to mature. In this book you really see how much as she returns home with her new powers and strange friends and jumps strait into the war that has been threatening her whole life.
