Publisher's Summary

International best-selling author Trudi Canavan returns with the second novel in the Millennium's Rule series - her most powerful and thrilling adventure yet.

Tyen is teaching mechanical magic at a school respected throughout the worlds. News arrives that the formidable ruler of all worlds, long believed to be dead, is back and enforcing his old laws - including the one forbidding schools of magic. As teachers and students flee, Tyen is left with no home and no purpose...except the promise he made to Vella, the sorcerer imprisoned in a book. Tyen must decide what he is willing to do to free her.

After five years among the tapestry weavers of Schpeta, Rielle's peaceful new life has been shattered by a local war. As defeat looms, the powerful Angel of Storms appears and invites Rielle to join the artisans of his celestial realm. But what will he require in return for this extraordinary offer?

Fantastic book

Wonderful to listen to, great readers and a fantastic story. I really enjoyed having the two different readers so each character was portrayed by there gender.

Liked it!

I thought it was a good follow-up to the last book, and I'm wondering where things will go next in this. I expect to conclusion to be excellent, based on what has happened so far.

this series is confusing and took to long to come clear, although I enjoyed the books I'm not overly excited about them.

a worthy second tale.

after a somewhat slow start, the book picks up the pace quickly and continues to be an amazing part of the high fantasy collection.

Fantastic! Though personally I'd like fewer worlds

Adored it! The readers were top notch as well. During the highest drama moments you can just feel the characters' rage thanks to how well the lines were spoken.
I would like to see more time spent on detailed, intriguing worlds rather than tons of nameless ones with one gimmick or only one place/city worth of note. Passing through so many and barely staying at all feels like it cheapens the wonder of discovering new worlds in general. Loratia and Firea were so in depth with their own cultures, histories, and such interesting ways of handling magic. I would love to see more like them.
Also, more Vela! She's so much fun!

Trudi delivers again with the second installment

continues the story from book 1. universe (well technically multiverse) is different from the Magician's Guild/Traitor Spy world with a different magic system. As with the first book performance was good although I struggled to get into the performance of the female reader easily. male narrator is excellent. That said I even enjoyed the female narrators parts as the writing was good.

slow starter and very repetitive but gets better

seemed to be hearing the same sentences over and over again; especially the rielle chapters. tyen was the more interesting story and felt like a story and not so repetitive. book gets better towards end and once 3/4 way through. voice acting was very good though and kept different characters voices same throughout, some of the accents were a little weird but you knew the character by voice rather than the story the whole time. good acting.

Can't wait for the next book

If you could sum up Angel of Storms in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, clever, believable

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both of the main characters

What does Hannah Norris and Piers Wehner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

They made the story come alive

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

Yes - but enjoyable to turn too whenever there was time

Gripping story with unexpected turns. Very talented and engaging narrator. Love the series, very different but yet another fabulous story by Trudi Canavan.

Absolutly fantastic

Where does Angel of Storms rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top

What other book might you compare Angel of Storms to, and why?

Trudi Cannavan's Age of Five trilogy because the magic system is similar and the plot has some similar points to it.

Any additional comments?

The magic system is so similar to the one in 'The Age of Five Trilogy' which although isn't as well known as Trudi Cannavan's other books is my favorite, and it is so easy to imagine that world is a distant world from this trilogy that is although rich in magic is isolated and untraveled to.

If you liked the 'Age of Five Trilogy' you must read/listen to this, and if you liked this one you must read/listen to 'Age of Five'

Plodding storyline, mediocre narration

Would really benefit from streamlining - could be literally hours shorter. Anyone can see the big twist - that the Raen and the Angel are the same - coming a mile off. Rielle’s naivety in this respect is really grating. The story doesn’t progress much until near the end, by which time I was feeling quite bored. As for the narration, I don’t understand why Rielle is the only one in 1000s of worlds to speak with a foreign accent (rather than a dialect) even in her own thoughts. It’s actually kind of offensive. Trudi Canavan is one of my favourite female fantasy writers but this isn’t her best work and the narration doesn’t help.

A struggle to finish the book.

Will not be getting the 3rd book.
The story line is so slow you sometimes want to change the speed of the audio.

The people who actually read the book are good and put a lot of effort into the boring characters.

I enjoyed the “Magicians” trilogy but this is a poor effort.

Sorry.

Who do you trust ?

Can't praise this book two of the series enough. Great continuity in the story line Trudi is a "magical" story teller. The narration was spot on and every minute of this book was exciting, very clever, intense and enjoyable. Really looking forward to the conclusion in September . A must read series
