While Maerad journeys in the far north, her brother, Hem, is sent south to the golden city of Turbansk. There, he learns the ways of the Bards and discovers a hidden gift when he rescues a white crow. But when the forces of the Dark threaten, Hem flees with his protector, Saliman, and a young orphan girl named Zelika to join the Light’s resistance forces. Soon Hem discovers that he, too, has a crucial role to play in the quest to solve the Riddle of the Treesong.
“This penultimate epic... is emotionally astute and brimming with vivid detail.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Great story grating narration...
The story is AWESOME. The narration is HORRID!!
Using the same narrator for all four books would have made this experience wonderful!! Eloise Oxer did such a fantastic job with the rest of the series. Colin Moody would have made a good computer voice, dull, monotone, dreary and therefore annoying. I couldn't even get through one chapter. I would adore hearing this story redone using Eloise. I regret downloading this version.
Hem and Crow were the characters I wanted to follow in this book.
His voice was very Text to Speech. Monotone doesn't even begin to describe the awful sound. He has no inflection, no sense of using his voice to portray different characters, and no sense of timing or dramatic pauses. Please don't let him read any more of your books!!!
none. Alison Croggon wrote a wonderful story that fits perfectly into the series.
Fire this narrator immediately.
