Publisher's Summary

Natalie Barns is falling apart. Since returning from Fourline, she's tried desperately to focus on the world in front of her - the one of classes, money, and family. But the wound in Natalie's shoulder from her final encounter with the Nala radiates pain constantly throughout her days, while her nights are tormented by terrifying dreams of the Nala - and of Soris, the rebel fighter she failed to protect.

Seeking refuge from what plagues her, Natalie returns to the costume shop and discovers her wound is much more dangerous than she ever could have imagined. What she learns sets her on an inexorable path back to the kingdom of Fourline. If she's to have a chance of survival, she must confront Soris' fate and the fears that have been festering in her heart - or the Nala remnant will change her life forever.

The Fourline Trilogy, book 2

I can't wait to listen to the last book. The heroine is hopeful and brave. I enjoy a strong female lead. For where she's at in her journey, she is courageous and maybe a tad clumsy. In the first book she didn't have a lot of knowledge but in the she's gaining knowledge and taking action.

Another hero accepting blame where they shouldn't.

Good book, but the protagonist is accepting responsibility and guilt for things that were not only not her fault, but clearly the responsibility of those giving her grief. If that byplay was removed it would be a great book.

She's a really strong character in other situations, so it doesn't make a lot of sense for her to be craving the approval of someone she actively dislikes.

Bad book

The story is pretty bad and there’s not really any character development or a strong plot. The first one was definitely more interesting but this one was really bad. I won’t be getting the next book in the series.

Good Story, Work on Mispronunciations

Lauren Ezzo needs to brush up on the correct pronunciation of "wary." Otherwise, an enjoyable listening experience.

Good story

Good story. I was glad Natalie got to go back in, however, it irritated me at how clumsy she was. I know she's supposed to be smart but she does lack in the common sense dept. I can't wait to read the next in this series.

Refuses to keep playing

At mid point in chapter two audio refused to play. This was offered for free with unlimited and I purchased the title anyway because it seemingly have a single chapter. It still won't play. I feel almost doubly cheated.

I can't figure out if its meh writing or narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listen to books to and from work so its never time wasted. But I only listened to this one because I wanted to know what happens to Nat and the Fourline crew.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'll probably listen to the third one since it's also included with Kindle Unlimited

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lauren Ezzo?

No idea but I constantly felt like the reading was over dramatic or the emphasis was put in the wrong place. And I really couldn't stand listening to her Nala voice. I know its supposed to be creepy but it was just irritating.

Did On the Meldon Plain inspire you to do anything?

Not really

Any additional comments?

When reading the same book and listening to the word choice, I did get the feeling that Lauren was trying to do the best with what she had to work with. It's far from a great story (Nat is hypocritical and few of the main characters had consistent personalities) so perhaps I'm being too critical of Lauren Ezzo's performance.

The reader is really terrible.

In general, this reader has a great reading voice. However, this book has more character than she can handle. The voices of the main characters are fine and even pleasant. But the voices of a lot of the other characters get on my nerves. The voices she uses for the men are specially horrible. This reader needs to stick to books with fewer characters.
