Good

Good story,There were a few Robin Hobbs' Character and place names used. The story reader needs to slow down and not be so breathy. Three or 4 characters sounded good, the rest sounded the same.

A Chance worth Taking

An absolute adventure! Imogen Church did an excellent job performing this fast paced story. I had no trouble keeping track of characters because she was able to consistently change her voice to fit each character. I can still hear them now. Sarah Kozloff crafted a layered book of intricate characters, worlds and magic, she really outdid herself in Book 2. I absolutely loved seeing our heroine’s development. I just loved this book and immediately purchased books 3 and 4 before I even finished reading Book 2! Yes, it’s that good!

Overly dramatic and sort of silly

I liked the first book. This one was silly, almost farcical at times. There was immature love and the story was about how people who had their lands raided got mad and so they raided their persecutor’s land. It was overly dramatic in the story and in the telling. Lots of murder and death to move the plot along, versus dynamic story telling. Argh. Found myself fast forwarding through pretty much most of the second half. Oh best part, the queen puts her life in jeopardy to help the raiders in stead of taking back her kingdom. Yeah, right. Sophomoric.

Great second book

I purchased this book after reading several good reviews. I am glad I started this series. The action is a bit slow, but the character development and world building has been excellent. Lots of intrigue and politics. I just finished the second book and know I will continue to binge listen to the end of the story. The narrator's voice can be a bit irritating (particularly with male voices, but overall she does justice to the story.
