Publisher's Summary

The Queen and the Cure: The Bird and the Sword Chronicles Series, Book 2: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart. 

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He'd never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him. But there is more to this man than his parentage. More to this man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power. 

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Entertaining

I read the first book The Bird and the Sword And was blown away by the story. I love every bit of it and was so excited to read the next one. I loved Kell. His personality in the beginning was engaging and interesting. Slowly it started to unravel for me. I didn’t really get a lot from the main female character. She really didn’t do much and was solely a love interest which left more to me desired. I really liked the beginning and middle of the book, but the ending was so predictable. I called every single thing that happened. The love was there. The characters were there. However it was so tropey. I still love Amy’s writing. The way she writes is poetic and there are so many moments in this book that make me feel with the characters. I look forward to whatever else she has to write in this series. I just want the magic back from the first book. The narrator is fantastic and the music in the book is something I’ve not experienced. It’s a great accompaniment for the words in the story. This book is not the best follow up to the first but it was still well done and entertaining to read. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from continuing the series.

The author should kneel and thank Steve West for the fantastic and brilliant performance of Steve West.

Just WOW !!!

The book by itself was outstanding...but this has to be one of the BEST audible books I have listened too. The narrator was outstanding and is now one of my new favorites. I loved the low notes of music and other sound bites in the background. A really great experience!!.

Loved the story

I really enjoyed the story and journey of the characters. It’s really keep you on your toes. I struggled with the back ground music through out. I had read the first book on my kindle but need to switch to audio while on a road trip. I only kept listening to it because I could not wait to know how it ended. If I had been at home I would have returned the Audio version and just read it. Much more relaxing and engaging that way.

Fantastic follow up.

Great story and Steve West did his usual top notch narration. Love the combination of fantasy & romance. So much more enjoyable to listen to than The Bird & the Sword because the narration was so much better. I would highly recommend reading The Bird & the Sword, which had a wonderful story but was ruined for me by the narrator and listening to The Queen & the Cure. I really love Amy Harmon’s writing!!

Good story, good narrorator

I thought the performance was pretty good overall, however, one of my greatest pet peeves is when book 1 is in 1st person and then it switches to 3rd person in the next book! I usually stop reading when that is the case. I wish they would have just kept it 1st person for either Kel or Sasha.
