Two great treats

This Audible book is very exciting and tells a great story,plus the narrator is one of the best. She changes characters so well that you forget that only she is doing the narration.

Good ending to an enjoyable series.

Of course Elizabeth returns to help Tegan fight and finally defeat Gideon. There is time travel in this book w/ of course magic. Good Story and a very good ending. I just wish Elizabeth would use her magic more.

Excellent

Excellent series. Interesting characters. Only thing I wished for, was that the men’s voices could have been read by men.
