Publisher's Summary

‘Twas a time when dragons left their lair and evil shadowed the land....

On the Day of Reckoning, the witches of Eileanan were outlawed - and violations of the new order were punishable by death. Eileanan’s Great Towers, once meccas of magic and learning, were left in ruins. And now, the entire land trembles in fear. 

Yet deep in the mountains, in the shadow of Dragonclaw, a young girl is being tutored in the old ways. Ignorant of her past, uncertain of her future, the foundling Isabeau will soon be forced down a dangerous path of prophecy, conspiracy, and magic. It is a world where dragons possess the key to ancient mysteries, where a lost prince will discover a strange and wondrous destiny, and where the ultimate battle between good and evil will be waged. 

A new Day of Reckoning is at hand....

A Great Series

I have read the paperback version of this book more times than I can count and I have loved this series since I first discovered it. I was so excited to see it is finally coming out on audible. The narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and speaking in a clear voice. Although the accent is heavy, it is easily understood and really brings the characters different personalities to life. The voices used make it extremely easy to differentiate between each character. I highly recommend this book. If you love a story of magic and sci fi filled with great accents and a gripping story then this series is for you.

Excellent!

The narrator did a beautiful job bring this wonderful tale to life! Although it took me a little bit of the book to adjust to the new universe & phrasing, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As it ends on a bit of a cliffhanger I am excited that the second book is already available and it looks like the rest of the books are coming soon :)

I am afraid!

I am 5 hours into this book and I am afraid. I am afraid I have started something amazing of which only the first book has been written. Is that a phobia? I feel like that should have a name.

Waited a long time for this series

I stumbled across this book in my campus bookstore when it was new and read the series several times over the years. I’ve waited and searched for this to be released on an audio version for years.

I knew the most important choice for this book would be the narrator. The accent would be critical.

Elle Newlands was a new narrator to me and did not disappoint!

I’m so happy to finally have this on Audible ❤️

So Good

This book was so good I binged it in two days. Great story and start to a series. I had been in the biggest book slump I can remember before finding this book. Great fantasy story for those who like fantasy but can’t get into high fantasy novels. I can’t recommend the book enough. I have been a fan of Kate Forsyth since discovering her book Bitter Greens. Her books are full of imagination and great writing. She is indeed a story teller. I’m very happy that this is a series and have already purchased all the books.

Great Book and well Read

I enjoyed this book greatly, I have the hard copy version but I was nice hearing it the accent it should be. very well read, loved it.

it would have been nice if this book came out before the Pool of Two Moons though.
