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 .

Why?

I loved the rest of the raven books, this was just very upsetting to me. Yes it ended up well, but did it really have to happen.

So warm and moody

Will Patton's shift to Opal's voice is stunning! this story has so much mood and perfectly captures the summer of the story.

Great Author .. 1.5 hour audiobook???

I really enjoyed this authors series. It’s a young adult fiction it has both some simple captivating stories and I am appreciative of the genre. Without looking I just went and bought this book and discovered that it’s 1.5 hours long. That’s not a book, that’s a pamphlet.

girl or goat or fae?

A slice of Opal’s life at the Barns with Ronan and Adam. The timeline isn’t specified, but it seems like it would be the summer after graduation, so following The Raven King. Life as told by Opal is amusing as she has some definite goat diet preferences. Will Patton is absolutely fabulous as narrator for the book and series. I’m happy to jump right into Call Down the Hawk;-)

Excellent narration!

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