Summary

Despite her hope for peace as the protector of the Siyee, Auraya is unable to avoid being caught up in the building conflict. As the gods' demands increase, Auraya finds that she must choose between those she loves and those she's sworn to serve. Meanwhile, Mirar enjoys acceptance and respect as he reclaims his place among his people, and Emerahl is at last able to join the Thinkers in their search for the Scroll of the Gods. The Pentadrians, determined to take their revenge on the conquering Circlians, plot and scheme to bring down their enemies by means other than direct conflict. The key to everything, though, may lie with the Wilds, who embark upon a quest for secrets buried long ago. Secrets that could change the world….

overly dramatic

Everything! was DRAMATIC! Even the most ordinary tasks where narrated as if it were a life or death situation.
The main character going ro bed:
Auraya OPENED the door! KICKED off her sandals and JUMPED into bed! where she IMMEDIATELY fell asleep.

A great ending to the trilogy

A gripping story, but I found that one of the plot twists was sufficiently likely after the previous volume that I wasn't sure how one of the characters didn't figure it out sooner.

Trudi Canavan: entertaining as always

Really enjoyed this trilogy, I like the diverse characters and the twists, spins, surprises and changes of allegiance.

There is a depth to the characters, and their flaws, mistakes and uncertainties are refreshing.

Weaving and connecting seemingly disjointed lands, peoples, lives and powers, the whole comes together satisfyingly well, yet leaving a window open a crack at the very end...

The narrator was consistently enjoyable, as she has been throughout. Lending a noticeable difference to the characters voices and mannerisms that makes this a pleasure to listen to.

A satisfactory ending to a good trilogy

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

Not as impressive as JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire but better than The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel and Trudi Canavan's Black Magician's trilogy and other books set in that fantasy world. Worse than Sherlock Holmes, better that James Bond, equal with the Vorkosigan saga.

What other book might you compare Voice of the Gods to and why?

Trudi Canavan's black Magician trilogy's "The High Lord" as it also concludes as series, includes a "forbidden" love affair and leave the "fantasy universe" in which it plays out completely changed, but I think this book is a bit better.

Which character – as performed by Sarah Douglas – was your favorite?

The veeze Mischief.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really, but it was easy enough to follow and at places it drew me in.

Any additional comments?

I thought the way the game pieces in this game of chess turned on those moving them was an excellent idea.

a unique universe with great depth

I enjoy the concept of universe where the magic is present almost everywhere and that all can access it to some degree. Plus the variety of the the landscape makes for interesting travel throughout the lands.
