A wonderful sequel to Daughter of the Forest which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. As Juliet Marillier is one of my favourite authors I own print copies of most of her books. I am loving the Audible editions and switching between the two formats as desired.
Whilst I missed the previous book's narrator, Rosalyn Landor performance is also well done.
I particularly enjoyed the tales told by some of the characters.

Thoroughly Enjoyably!!!

Juliet Marillier has once again crafted a superb tale with fantastic, well developed characters. It is a real page turner with a satisfying ending, which will leave you eagerly awaiting the next book.
Imogen Sage does a brilliant job bringing all of the characters to life.
If you like Robin Hobbs books you will probably like Juliet Marillier's too.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Susan Harker's superb narration made this an utter pleasure to listen to. As another reviewer wrote it makes one feel as if Jane Austen herself were reading the story.

An insightful book to be treasured by dog lovers

Wow! Patricia McConnell is a wealth of knowledge and a thoroughly entertaining author. I wish I had found her books sooner. The Audible version was excellent! Ellen Archer narrated the book perfectly!
I enjoyed this book so much I will also purchase the hard copy as I am sure it is a book I will want to refer to repeatedly. It was so good I didn't want it to end...

Like the other Wheel of Time books this book is swamped with an excess of characters. This leads to little plot development. The Path of Daggers feels like half a book, as most of the plots are all left hanging.
The few that are feel anticlimactic.
The characters continue to be shallow with few redeeming qualities, with the exception of Perrin.
Rand shows little thought, gratitude or kindnesses to those who risk their lives for him.
When compared to the skilled character development of authors like Robin Hobb it is hard to see why this series is so popular.
