After seeing these reviews, I was really scared to listen to this. I loved the first 2 books SO MUCH! Jennifer Ikeda ruled. Why the switch!? I wish she had kept going, and I don't know why they chose someone new, but honestly? Once I got over being pissed off, it wasn't that bad! I mean, Amanda is no Jennifer, but I think she did her best. The characters were good. Lucien's brothers were fantastically evil. I just miss the overall tone of Jennifer as Feyre. I felt like I got to know her, and now it was like a completely different person.
And since this book is over 25 hours long, how were people writing reviews THE FIRST DAY IT CAME OUT!? I don't think half those people even gave the new narrator a chance. They couldn't have had the time to listen to it. So. I admit, it took a while for her to find her stride, I think, but once I got past my initial shock and dismay, and I started listening to the story itself? I was still interested, and I was still moved.
Chapter 44 - with all the high lords? And that scene with the cliff? Oh - and Lord Grayson scene with Elaine???? Come on. It was good. Admit it. Of course, you have to listen that far.
It probably sucks to step into such a popular series, so I say job well done -- even if I wish Jennifer was still doing it....

I'll admit, I had a difficult time getting into this one (but loved it none-the-less). The new narration was just so different from Jennifer Ikeda -- for Feyre and Rhysand particularly. However, about a quarter of the way through, I was over it and just enjoying the story itself. Cobb did a really amazing job with the thrilling last half of the book in particular. Knowing that we have some character-focused novellas and novels coming up in the series, I know she'll do a great job with them (she nailed Cassian, Nesta, Amren, and Mor, I thought). looking forward to more Maas books narrated by Cobb (or Ikeda should she come back to the series). The fandom should definitely not fear this one. It's a great listen!

I adore this series.
I think audible is fantastic.
I almost don't want to criticise this book because I love the characters and the first two books are brilliant.
However needless to say I am so disappointed with the ending of this book! I hate the fact that Rhysand is brought back to life, he shouldn't of died in the first place! It almost seems that anyone can just die and be saved ... and the point with Feyre was that when she was made new it was special, an event that does not happen. It also makes no sense that he still only have the night court powers?
Rysands character seems to change throughout as well, he is not rude or smug with Feyre he doesn't speak to her the way he did in the first two books
and for me that was why I loved them together because they challenged each other.
Nesta and Elain play good parts in the book, and the friendship and love these three sisters have towards the end is lovely.
I will say when Feyre is undercover at the start of the book has you gripped. And when all the high lords meet and Tamlin walks in late that too has you on the edge of your seat.
Just loved every minute of the entire series.
Wonderful storytelling and well-rounded characters. Thank you.
Nowhere near as good as the last book, although the narration may have had something to do with it, the narration was just terrible! She got the emotions all wrong. Really hope they get someone else to narrate the story, as this narrator left me feeling nothing at all except irritation.

Kept me enthralled and eager for more! Excellent speaker, with an amazing storyline. Can't wait for the next one.
