Summary

Although the architect of the White's victory, Auraya's first taste of war has left her sleep filled with nightmares. She walks in fields of blood while the dead rise in accusation. You killed us. You. It seems Auraya will know no peace while these nightmares haunt her, but the only one she trusts to help has vanished. The Dreamweaver, Leiard, still struggling to come to terms with the ever more powerful memories of the long-dead Mirar, flees into the mountains with Emerahl, perhaps the last of the Wilds.

Although not a Dreamweaver herself, Emerahl is powerfully gifted, and helps Leiard to make sense of his strange jumble of memories. What they discover will change his life forever. And far to the south, the Pentadrians lick their wounds and set about finding a new leader. Peace, it seems, must wait a while yet....

I love this series

Great book. I just wish the reader didn't make Reivan sound like a chav! I've read the books and she was the character I wanted to be so it ruined it a little.

Great listen

I have always loved this book and have it in paperback. I found the narrator a good edition to the story and found this to be an easy listen with her smooth voice and command of each characters personality which in this book is no easy feat. Definitely worth listening to

addictive

Trudi Canavan is a very addictive author. If you read the first one in one of her trilogies you can stop there but if you start the second book you will need to to the end of the third in no time.

Don't start her series with reading a book and switch to audio because you might pronounce the names different.

This is the second book in the series. All her books have a sense of closure, but often Canavan's second books in her trilogies leave a lot still open so you can never stop at the end of this you will need to read the third.

Age of the Five part 2

Would you listen to Last of the Wilds again? Why?

Probably not as I love new stories

What other book might you compare Last of the Wilds to, and why?

Dragonlance books, the complexity of the story, lots of strands and people to follow

Have you listened to any of Sarah Douglas’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Just as good as the first one I read...

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, just engaged me

Any additional comments?

The other books have a chap reading them, whose voice is not one I could listen to for the length of these books, so looks like I will not be listening to any more books from this author unless this changes, sadly

Good story supported by excellent narration

I think the "Age of The Five" is probably Trudi Canavan's best fantasy trilogy. While it shares a lot of elements with her magician's guild books, it is set in a different fantasy world and not so blatantly influenced by role-playing games or typical fantasy writing.

In "The Last of the Wilds" Auraya, the White, undergoes a subtle transformation. The listener is also introduced to the Pentradreans, the dreaded enemy, and the black and white, right and wrong world created by the five gods ruling Mithania becomes blurred.

I heartily recommend this unabridged version to the abridgement, as there are some details that adds flavour to a good story that you might miss if listening to the abridged version.

Sarah Douglas complements the story nicely and brings the story to vividly to life.

Be warned, at the end of this book, you might be impatient to get the the next part, "The Voice of the gods." I enjoyed this book.
