It is only when she is discovered by Cadvan, one of the great Bards of Lirigon, that her true identity and extraordinary destiny unfold.

absolutely enchanting

I fell in love with this story 7 years ago the first time I picked it up in print. I found the story enchanting but because I couldn't pronounce some of the words, found it difficult to finish. I never thought I'd be one for audio books but this narrator was perfect and her pronunciation enchanting. I am now on to the next book in the series.

Detailed story that holds your attention.

Would you listen to The Naming again? Why?

Not sure if I would reread this book. Maybe. Will know better once I read all the books in the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Naming?

Likely the rescue near the start of the heroine of the book.

Which scene was your favorite?

Not sure if it was a scene as much as the richness and depth of the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Again not really one moment.

Any additional comments?

If you like rich character and world development this is one of those books that draws you in. I enjoyed the book quite a bit and will read further.
