Publisher's Summary

Winter has finally broken its hold over the Kingdom - but as the snows melt, trouble springs up in its place. A dark cloud hangs over Midlan: The army has retreated behind its high walls, not a word slips out from between its gates. And rumors swirl that the King has gone mad.

Kael knows nothing of this: His sights are on the plains. But with his horrible luck following him wherever he goes, it doesn't take long for his plan to unravel. He finds himself trapped in Gilderick's clutches and forced to work as a slave, laboring alongside the giants - who don't exactly welcome him. In fact, he begins to suspect that some would rather see him dead. If Kael is going to have any chance to survive, he'll have to come up with a new plan - and quickly.

Meanwhile, Kyleigh finds herself locked in a sprint across the desert. Time presses against her: There is a force gathered in Whitebone that threatens to undo everything, should it reach the plains. But her pride blinds her to the dangers, and it isn't long before she and her companions are lost among the towering dunes. The strange magic of the sun drains their strength, misfortune nips at their heels, but they are determined to save their friends. And so they'll brave the desert's every peril - be it storms or cave trolls...or flesh-eating worms.

    "Very entertaining"

    Good story. I was interested to hear what would happen next and looked for reasons to listen, however it did slow down a bit in the middle, but stick with it as it does take up again. This story is not deep, so dont expect "Lord of the Rings", but enjoy it as light entertainment. I will be buying the next one.

    "Clumsy, but enjoyable"

    A reasonable story, very well read that will keep you going until the end. However, having made her two main characters too powerful, there were times where it felt like the author struggled to artificially limit them to preserve the tension, which often resulted in the characters forgetting to use powers they'd already shown earlier in the book, and which would have made light of the drama now unfolding. There were also times it seemed like you could feel the editors touch, leaving it seem a little clumsy.

    "Brilliant series"

    So far this is turning out to be a brilliant series and I can't wait to listen to the next one. I found slight and shadow a little slow during some parts but it's still a brilliant listen.

    "Good for a fun listen but not a strong epic."

    While I enjoy this series, it's focused more for younger readers I believe. There are too many coincidences and convenient solutions for a serious epic fantasy. If you go into it accepting that, it's a fun listen. The narrator is great though.

    "This series should never end!"

    Don't let the cover of the book hold you back. It did for me. I passed over it several times then finally took a chance on it. You'll fall in love with the characters as well as the adventure!

    Any additional comments?

    What is great about this book / series... is that their are perfect amount of character's that come to life without being overwhelming. At the same time leaving room for you to see each one of them as a large role in the story line... Keeps you wanting more...

    "I loved it!"

    It's been such an enjoyable series that I couldn't wait for my next credit so I took the time to purchase the next and last book that there is! Well at least I hope it's not the last book!

    "Derek Perkins is the new Morgan freeman."

    Good story, great narration. Derek Perkins could read me the dictionary and I'd be in to it. Shae Ford can write a story, too.

    Story
    "Its a good read"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Slight and Shadow?

    When Lysander learned his wife is pregnant.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He have a totaly unique voice, and you can always tell which character is speaking. I've heard many of his works and I am impressed. He is definatly one of the better Narrators out there!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Mostly yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If you read the first book and remember the ending and absolutely hated it (Like me) He does pretty much the same here eccept slightly on a happier tone. 99% of the book was near perfection but the ending completely ruined any satisfaction i might have had, and now im sitting here annoyed and sad. Ruins the experience for me, I had fun listening until the ending got my knickers in a twist. If it had been a proper ending it would have been a 5 star for me. As it is I will have too settle for 4/5.
