Summary

International best-selling author Trudi Canavan returns with the second novel in the Millennium's Rule series - her most powerful and thrilling adventure yet.

Tyen is teaching mechanical magic at a school respected throughout the worlds. News arrives that the formidable ruler of all worlds, long believed to be dead, is back and enforcing his old laws - including the one forbidding schools of magic. As teachers and students flee, Tyen is left with no home and no purpose...except the promise he made to Vella, the sorcerer imprisoned in a book. Tyen must decide what he is willing to do to free her.

After five years among the tapestry weavers of Schpeta, Rielle's peaceful new life has been shattered by a local war. As defeat looms, the powerful Angel of Storms appears and invites Rielle to join the artisans of his celestial realm. But what will he require in return for this extraordinary offer?

A struggle to finish the book.

Will not be getting the 3rd book.
The story line is so slow you sometimes want to change the speed of the audio.

The people who actually read the book are good and put a lot of effort into the boring characters.

I enjoyed the “Magicians” trilogy but this is a poor effort.

Sorry.

Trudi delivers again with the second installment

continues the story from book 1. universe (well technically multiverse) is different from the Magician's Guild/Traitor Spy world with a different magic system. As with the first book performance was good although I struggled to get into the performance of the female reader easily. male narrator is excellent. That said I even enjoyed the female narrators parts as the writing was good.

slow starter and very repetitive but gets better

seemed to be hearing the same sentences over and over again; especially the rielle chapters. tyen was the more interesting story and felt like a story and not so repetitive. book gets better towards end and once 3/4 way through. voice acting was very good though and kept different characters voices same throughout, some of the accents were a little weird but you knew the character by voice rather than the story the whole time. good acting.

Absolutly fantastic

Where does Angel of Storms rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top

What other book might you compare Angel of Storms to, and why?

Trudi Cannavan's Age of Five trilogy because the magic system is similar and the plot has some similar points to it.

Any additional comments?

The magic system is so similar to the one in 'The Age of Five Trilogy' which although isn't as well known as Trudi Cannavan's other books is my favorite, and it is so easy to imagine that world is a distant world from this trilogy that is although rich in magic is isolated and untraveled to.

If you liked the 'Age of Five Trilogy' you must read/listen to this, and if you liked this one you must read/listen to 'Age of Five'

Liked it!

I thought it was a good follow-up to the last book, and I'm wondering where things will go next in this. I expect to conclusion to be excellent, based on what has happened so far.

Nothing happens

I expected something to happen in 2nd book, but nothing ever did. The decisions that the protagonist do are just stupid.

a worthy second tale.

after a somewhat slow start, the book picks up the pace quickly and continues to be an amazing part of the high fantasy collection.
