Publisher's Summary

In an increasingly battle-ravaged land, Maerad, Cadvan, and Hem desperately search for one another as they make their separate journeys. The Black Army is advancing north, and even as Maerad faces a mighty confrontation with the Landrost to save Innail, all of the Seven Kingdoms are threatened with bitter and devastating defeat.
Yet in Maerad and Hem lives the secret to the mysterious Singing, and legend holds that if they release the music of Elidhu together, they have the power to defeat the Nameless One. Can brother and sister find each other in time to fight this all-powerful enemy, and are they strong enough - even reunited - to defeat him before all is lost?
The climactic volume of the epic quartet follows the Bards of Edil-Amarandh on a vital quest to merge their powers against a nameless evil.

Slow, but worth it!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Singing to be better than the print version?

I read/listened to all four books. This was the last book in the series and I really enjoyed it. It was a bit slow at times but I finished this one faster than the other three. Afterwards I just felt so emotionally raw and vulnerable and cried. I really enjoyed it. I recently started listening to the first book again.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She reads a bit slow. I had it on a faster reading setting, but at times I will dial it back since it was a bit too fast and hard to get with her accent going fast.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

i would if it wasnt so long.
