Another fantastic addition to a marvelous series

Exquisite narration from Travis in a showstopper of a tournament arc. Can't wait for Wintersteel.

Otherwise good book marred by unsatisfying ending

So, my view on cliffhanger endings is that they must be accompanied by some actual resolution in the story you're telling. It's fine to leave a cliffhanger to the next book if the main thrust of the plot you've been following so far is taken care of, but we do not even get that with Uncrowned.

I'd have honestly rather waited another few months and have Will put a real ending on this one.

An emotional rollercoaster

You know the book is good when you feel the death of a character introduced 10 pages ago like the death of one of the main character. The writing is outstanding the book is amazing!

With that said this book should have been two books. There is way too much story for one book. Interesting things that I would have wanted to hear more about were missing.

Still an excellent book and deserves the 5*. Can't wait for the next.

a bit of 'nothing much happened here'

i'll say, I love this series to death, but this latest one felt strangely like a filler arc. linden was beaten relentlessly and it was more than a little frustrating frankly. the pay off after several beatings just wasn't there. most of the book felt like just obstacles that you had to wait out or wade through with no real sense of victory. but, if i'm not mistaken, it was written to set up the next chapter in the story, rather than be a fully realised story of it's own.
hopefully, northstrider will make the next one more interesting and cumbersome. that said, you shouldn't skip this one it has very important plot points. it just seemed a little scattered compared to prevoous books.

How Did a group of jades kill a Sage?

Well, you can stop with that question now maybe?

This is book 7 in the "crack" I mean the cradle series. It is more cradle, more fights, more dross, new people to love and hate. The final fight left me angry, confused, excited, giddy lord who knows what else.

Travis Baldree is great as usual, he is one of the best out there. I read the book and loved it but Travis made this audiobook a feast for the ears. Careful while listening in public, you will bust out laughing but then why will you care while Travis Baldree is carrying you on waves of cradle infused sound madra.

The Biggest Flaw

The Biggest Flaw with these books, is how short each of them are. It's painful because the story and characters are so compelling, and each books feels like only a brief glimpse into their world. It leaves you ever so slightly disappointed, and ravenously wanting more.

Dear Will Wight... for Christmas I want...

I love the book and I really don't know what more I can say, so that you will understand that you really NEED this series in your life! And, Travis Baldree's narration. So since this is the first time that I can't just grab the next book (I binged the series all 7 books in basically a month), and since it's almost Christmas time I've decided to write out my Christmas list, but instead of addressing it to Santa, I'm addressing it to Will Wight (of course)!

Dear Will Wight... For Christmas, I request the following:

Please write faster! 😁 I want... no, I NEED to know what happens next!
I NEED to know what's going on in the valley with Ortho and Wei Shi Lindon's family!
I want more Eithan! What's Eithan's long game?
...Wait, what's that? Is Pride correct about Lindon and Mercy?
What about Northstryder... what's he up to!
See, my need are few, only 4 or 5 things if you count the "write faster" There are plenty of voids that I NEED you to fill in with your crafty writing! 😊
And please keep in mind I want the next book (Wintersteel), wrapped up with a bow and under my Christmas tree, or at least in time for my birthday at the end of January! No Slacking, Okay? 🤣

I couldn’t stop !

I got the first book as a daily special and quickly purchased all the rest of the books and binge listened until complete. I love this series so much! I don’t usually listen to fantasy and prefer mysteries and thrillers but this series so so amazing!! I can’t wait for the next one.

still a good series

This was another great addition to this series, I can't wait to see what happens next!
p.s. don't shy away because some listeners were unsatisfied with the ending, it is well worth the time!!

Really Disappointed...

Compared to the rest of the books in this series this one felt incomplete. Normally the books have a complete sub-plot to them while pushing the main story forward. Uncrowned either didn't have that or I was able to catch what the subplot was.

Amazing

Not just this book but all the ones before. What a great series!! Great character arcs, surprising twists and turns to the story. Books I would even let my daughter read since there is nothing more than sexual tension in any of this series. As an avid reader of fantasy, I highly recommend this series!

Keeping it fresh

Voicing is great as usual. My personal favorite is Dross's voice. Author does a great job keeping continuity and always moving the story along with interesting events and occurances. Some people didn't like the fact that there was a cliffhanger, but in a novel where you know there will be more followups...I dont see this as an issue. There is clearly demarction where the author is bringing us into a new arc
