Magic.

I’d already read Opal in ebook, but was thrilled to get an audio version of this short story. The charm of Will Patton’s narration adds a layer of enjoyment to the unfettered pleasure that is a Maggie Stiefvater read. This series is painfully good—one of my all time favorites, and I’m very much looking forward to Call Down the Hawk for more of the story.

That voice...

There is no one to compare with Will Patton's voice...sheets of liquid satin with sandpaper edges. Listening to him resonates in my soul and becomes a full body experience. His voice reading Maggie Stiefvater's words are what I want to hear as the last sound before sleep, each night or eternally .

Excellent narration!

Will Patton’s voice characterization and lilting reading voice brought this series into not only a magical, but mystical realm.

I loved every phrase!

This is The Raven Cycle at its absolute best. The humor, the imagination, the love. It's just a wonderful piece of the story.

Ok

The books prior to this in this series were fantastic so I had very high expectations for this book and preordered it. It is okay, but quite empty and flat in comparison to its predecessors I'm afraid.

What a wonderful tease!!!

Please, please let this be the first Chapter of the next Raven Cycle installment!! I craved more of Ronin and Adam after the Raven King and this was a sweet appetizer. It truly hope there is more to come.

Happiness and sadness of dream things

Magical little story set at The Barns, told from fey little Opal's point of view. Ronan and Adam are a couple and the future is bright but also brittle. I cried. 5 stars, a must for the readers of The Raven Cycle (though I'm not sure it stands on it own).

Pure delight.

I forgot how much I enjoyed this series and these characters. As soon as it was available I paused the story I'd been listening to and started Opal immediately. It was like meeting up with well loved friends again. I've read the story, but Will Patton's narration brings so much more to the experience and that's saying something, because Maggie Stiefvater's writing is superb. Evocative and lyrical, she effortlessly transported me into the Opal's world from the first word and left me sad to be released at the last. But I'm happy too. Content at this small sip and looking forward to the next book's release, Call Down the Hawk, in Nov.
