Publisher's Summary

Talia could scarcely believe that she had finally earned the rank of full Herald. Though this seemed like the fulfillment of all her dreams, it also meant she would face trials far greater than those she had previously survived. 

For now, Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispensing Herald's justice throughout the land. 

But in this realm beset by dangerous unrest, enforcing her rulings will require all the courage and skill Talia could command - for if she misuses her own special powers, both she and Valdemar will pay the price.

good second book

Having read the first book I was excited to read the second. Some parts were long-winded with excessive details, and I got frustrated over the inability of the characters to learn from their experiences. The pace picked up at the end of the book, and the narrator did a great job reading and speaking for the characters

Exceptional!

It's like coming home. I read these in my very early 20s and was so captivated that I lost myself in Valdemar at every opportunity. 30 years later, I've come home again...

Drawn In

I love this book series. the person who voices this story has a way of drawing you in to the story's depth. so much so (I live in Al ....hot weather) that when they read the winter description I bundled up. when I got outside I was le what the hell it's supposed to be cold!

So worth it.

Part 2 of Talia's story

Talia faces her first time on circuit, and the terrible rumors follow her from court. A wonderful story.

Long time favorite

Wonderful story

make sure to listen to Arrows of the Queen first. I've read these books before, but there is something about listening to then that gives them that extra special magic.

Great story, Great narrator. It's just great!

I love this series. The narrator has a wonderfully soothing voice and does excellent characterization for everyone. The pacing is very good, highlighting the important parts while also jumping months at a time. It does feel a bit rushed at the end as most of it is wrapping up some loose ends, but it's all enjoyable to read/listen to.
