I really enjoyed the main character and her development throughout the story. The weaving in of past and present throughout was cleverly done. The narrator was brilliant and faultless in her portrayal of the different characters and her use of different accents. I found I did have to speed up the narration otherwise it was as a bit slow.

This book was brilliantly narrated. The story and characters are believable, captivating in its brutality, human tolerance, loss and intrigue. Well worth the journey.

It's not often you get sequels as good as the first book. I loved this. It had it all- sadnesses, loss, love, letting go, forgiveness, hope, innocence and most importantly it made me laugh. The narrator was great and consistent all the way throughout. Well worth the listen.

Absolute brilliance!

Oh kristoff delivers yet again! I couldn't stop Listening. I loved the return of some of my old favourite characters and the introduction of the new. WELL worth the listen! The only problem now is having to wait for the next one!

Fantastic, yet I missed the other characters

Sarah J. Maas has such skill for intertwining all the main characters with brilliant perfect twists, you sometimes don't see coming. It's worth listening to the prequel to the throne of glass- The Assassin's Blade, as this will be all the more evident and add to the story immensely. After the cliffhanger in the last book, I was a little disappointed with this one not really including any of the other characters and now have to wait a while for the next instalment.

Regardless, I enjoyed this story and it's well worth the read even though I find the other characters much more fascinating.

Loved it! loved it! loved it!
This book took me completely off guard and I didn't quite expect the sharp witticism and language- a nice surprise!
The narrator did a great job (hearing the swallowing sometimes was a bit distracting) his voices- flawless. If you are not sensitive to blood and swearing, like a bit of crassness then I highly recommend this book!

Undecided and left frustrated!

I can't say I didn't enjoy this story because I did, it's just that in book two I found so many little things aggravatingly frustrating. At times it was a slog to get through.
Fitz repetitive use of 'my king' 'my king in waiting' grated on me throughout as well as his absolute self sacrifice. All this coupled with the obvious plot and the narrators changing of key characters accents at some points through dialogue has made me unsure as to whether I will give the last book a chance.

Storms! An epic story strikes again!

Another beautifully written and executed epic. A continuation and depth into the characters added to some shocking, (have to back track) 'they didn't just do that' or 'they can't be dead' moments throughout. Author masterfully creates one nail biting page after another all the way to the last storming page!
I didn't notice this time how the narrators differed in their pronunciation of specific people's names, bonus!

A true Epic tale

No one could question the epic nature of this story, yet I am still a tad Undecided.
I did enjoy the story, but gosh having to wait until the last few chapters for all to start becoming clear- One would say that is a long time to wait!
I will listen to book 2, especially since this one was such a serious undertaking and I am interested to see where the story goes.
Shame about the female narrators pronunciation of characters names- a bit confusing at times. I don't think the story needed a male and female narrator.
