Summary

"The seasons are changing. The lines are faltering, undoing the old and bringing life to the new. Trees will fall, and changed earth will be left in their place. A storm is coming."

Finn doesn't remember much about her previous life, and in a world that has been changed by the wars of the Tuatha De, where trust is hard to come by, answers are even more difficult to find. Little does she know, an unknown evil tugs on the strings of fate, and the answers she so desperately seeks may be more important than she could have ever imagined.

I had great hopes

The main character is pretty pathetic. Some nice ideas in the story. I am not interested in second book. the narrator is really good.

Starter

Not much happens in this short story. However it has laid a lot of groundwork so still has the potential to be a good overall series depending on the next book which I will be listening to.

A Tree Transforms into a Human

I enjoyed this book. The premise is interesting. A tree suddenly transforming into a human. However, the woman begins to wonder if she's always been a tree. She goes on a quest, hoping to find someone to turn her back into a tree, and meets all sorts of people along the journey, including those who betray her. It's a typical quest story, with very little magic involved except for the fae forest. I think some of the characters were inconsistent, and some of their reasons for doing things a bit weak, but otherwise I did enjoy the tale and may check out more by the author.

Loved it. The narrator was fabulous. The story was compelling, and drew me to listen all the way to the end.

Average, Short, but Entertaining

The story line is good, not great. It is a mix of imaginative characters and some same-old-stuff, resulting in average story.
The break between books is a little awkward and should have been planned out better. Ms Farmer’s performance was good, but not great. The results overall were acceptable for a bit of light entertainment, but not something I would heavily endorse.

2 books of the 4 book series are Audible

I wish I had known that the 4 book series was not complete in Audible before I started the 1st book. I loved the book, can not see well enough to read book 3 and 4. OH WELL maybe they will get around to it someday. (I will listen to book 2)

Great book

I love the detail and character development in this book. It goes at a medium/low pace through most of the book but is not disappointing or boring. Looking forward to the next book and hopefully will answer some of the questions that this book did a great job leading up to!

Good story, great narrator

A narrator can make or break a story. This one makes it. She maintains a solid pacing of the story, and keeps you interested with her characterizations. The story is intriguing, and keeps you interested throughout. The author paints a fairly complex world evenly and clearly, so you don't get lost in the multiple characters and intersecting plot lines.

Tree of Ages, Book 1

The characters, ideas, and plot in this book are very interesting. It was hard to follow at first, because the point of view kept switching between the different characters with their different thoughts, feelings, intentions, and scenery. I am continuing to the second book to see what happens, I would recommend this book to someone who like fantasy and adventure, and enjoys mythical beings. The narration of the story was rather dull, and could have had more emotion and energy. I found myself drifting off and losing interest because of the way the narrator narrated, not because of the story. The story itself was very interesting and the only reason I will continue to listen to the series.

Great fantasy

Once I started this book, I didn’t want to start. When I got to the end I was sad it was over and eager for the next one. The story is unique, the characters well written and believable, and the story moved along smoothly.

The narration is spot on . The narrator emotes really well and voices each character with care. I truly enjoyed listening to this book.
