Publisher's Summary

The future holds nothing but blood and death... and Teia fears there is nothing she can do about it. Her clan is riding to war, but her secret, untrained gift of foretelling has shown her they are riding to their doom. If she cannot turn them from their course, her only hope of saving them will be to betray them to their sworn enemies. Gair is mourning his past... but there is no time to dwell on his grief or hunger for revenge. Pursuing an artefact from the Founding Wars, he travels deep into the hostile southern deserts. As religious tensions erupt into bloody violence around him, he must make an impossible choice: save innocent lives or sacrifice them in the hope that thousands more can be saved later. And all the while, his grip on his powers is failing.

Read by Allan Corduner, who trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and has appeared on stage in Passion at the Donmar Warehouse, Serious Money in the West End and Titanic on Broadway, and on screen in Yentl and Topsy-Turvy, amongst many other roles. He is a highly experienced voice actor and memorably narrated the voice of Death when reading The Book Thief. He has read Elspeth Coopers' Wild Hunt novels for Orion.

    "Story line"

    The story was spoiled at the start by the continuous and graphic sexual abuse of certain characters. The same understanding of the suffering could have been achieved without going into such details. Fortunately it did cease and the story continued from the first book and I settled down to enjoy it. I notice that there are no other titles by the author so the cannot continue. I wait in anticipation for the next installment.

    "Loved it"

    I like the way Elspeth Cooper writes, how the world and the characters are described. Narrators voice was nice and I was amazed how fast my days at work went when I was listening to this. I am happy that I can listen to these books in english because these are not available in Finland.

    "Good but frustrating"

    Book two of a four(or more?) book series. Really enjoyed the first & I was keen to see where the characters ended up after the cliffhanger at the end of the first. Frustratingly almost the first third of this book dealt entirely with a new character - I had to check several times whether I was reading the same series. Eventually the threads rejoined & I enjoyed the rest of the book & was eager for the third.

    Story
    "Good second book"

    This is a great book 2, but, still, falls victim of 'Book 2 Syndrome'. The plot stumbles a few times and seems to run in place in parts.

    Quick synopsis: The story splits into 3 main POVs - Gair, Tanith and Teia. Elspeth Cooper's female characters are wonderful - complex, brave and flawed.

    Gair battles with his song in the aftermath of the attack and the death of his lover. Tanith is torn between her love for Gair and her duty to her people. Teia: Teia is wonderful: inspiring, strong and brave.

    This review is written after I've read Book 3, so I can see why the book was paced as it was. At the time of reading, though, I found it a bit frustrating.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I found this 2nd book a little boring, after it finished and I began contemplating the story I thought I had been given a lesson on feminism, I'm not keen on being lectured about the stupidity and arrogance of men and the strength, intelligence and wisdom of women!


    What about Allan Corduner’s performance did you like?

    I love the way Allan Corduner tells a story, I believed all the characters and his voice has a warm quality that does not grate on ones nerves.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed book 1, and was left disappointed with this second book, Gair has become a sulking, petulant character whom I lost sympathy for and his story does not start until half way through the book, I was expecting this book to be as good or better than the first, but sadly it was not, I don't think I will bother with the 3rd.
