Publisher's Summary

In Eileanan, victory has finally been won, and those of faery kind - from the mighty dragons to the mysterious nyx - have sworn their friendship and aid. Only the sea-dwelling Fairgean have refused to sign the Pact of Peace. Driven by ancient hatreds, they have devoted themselves to destroying all who dwell upon the land.

Troubled by the darkness that may lie ahead, Lachlan agrees to release his beloved Iseult from the sacred oath that binds them together. It will then be for Iseult to decide whether she will remain in the mountains to resume life with her own kin, or return to the man who let her go.

To help bring peace to Eileanan, Iseult’s flame-haired twin, Isabeau, must also face her most difficult challenge yet. But before she can prove herself worthy of both the scar of the Soul-Sage and the ring of the sorceress, she must first find a way to heal her own wounded spirit.

Great ending to a great series

I have read the paperback version of this book more times than I can count and I have loved this series since I first discovered it. I was so excited to see it is finally coming out on audible. The narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and speaking in a clear voice. Although the accent is heavy, it is easily understood and really brings the characters different personalities to life. The voices used make it extremely easy to differentiate between each character. I highly recommend this book. If you love a story of magic and sci fi filled with great accents and a gripping story then this series is for you. I really do hope that the next three that continue this story are added to audible soon.

Satisfying conclusion

I was worried that this final installment of the series would spend too much time mired in battle scenes without letting the characters finish developing in their arcs. However, each main character was allowed to come to a place of peace by the end. My only complaint might be that with such a sweeping cast of characters developed over the course of the series, I would have loved to hear more from each of the side characters as they concluded this journey. Some had a passing mention as threads were tied up in the end, but others faded away and weren’t included.

Most satisfying was having the twins both find peace after their complicated storylines. And also finally getting to the point where Lachlan wasn’t just always an aggressive bully.

What an enjoyable escape!

Kate Forsyth has written a wonderful series full of imagery and stories all intertwined to form a world of wonder. Elle Newlands brings the series to life with her lilting, melodic voice. She brings the characters alive and has a beautiful singing voice as well. Thank you Kate and Elle for this gift.

the sorcerer book

loved this series. A+ kate. the narrator was fantastic. Elle Neal is not only a great reader but a great singer as well. If you love the fantasy, then you'll love this series. It would be fun to see a movie made. I'd like to see the characters.

One of the best

Have to say this has been one of the best series I have read in a long time. Great author, great narrator and wonderful flowing story line full of intrigue and magic and dragon lairs and witches and even some well woven humour.
