Publisher's Summary

The hotly anticipated epic and phenomenal West-African inspired finale to the New York Times best-selling fantasy Raybearer.

Earphones Award Winner

For the first time, an Empress Redemptor sits on Aritsar's throne. To appease the sinister spirits of the dead, Tarisai must now anoint a council of her own, coming into her full power as a Raybearer. She must then descend into the Underworld, a sacrifice to end all future atrocities.

Tarisai is determined to survive. Or at least, that's what she tells her increasingly distant circle of friends. Months into her shaky reign as empress, child spirits haunt her, demanding that she pay for past sins of the empire.

With the lives of her loved ones on the line, assassination attempts from unknown quarters, and a handsome new stranger she can't quite trust, Tarisai fears the pressure may consume her.

In this finale to the Raybearer duology, Tarisai must learn whether to die for justice...or to live for it.

Why did they change the narrator?!

I was really pleased to see the sequel to Raybearer was out on audiobook - I loved the previous book and was looking forward to devouring this book as quickly as that one. Unfortunately, they've changed the narrator from the previous book. The new narrator stumbles over many words, and the halting......line.......delivery really takes me out of the story. Such a shame, as it's taken me weeks to listen to an hour of it so far, when I listened to the previous book in a day due to the beautiful, gripping storyline. I'm not even sure I'll manage to finish this book, the narration is that bad.

Great story! Narration however . . .

I would have really enjoyed it more if the same narrator as the first book read this. It missed the same charm and flow.

Great book, but dearly missed the old narrator!

I truly loved these books, but I really felt the loss of Weruche Opia in this one. I'm sure I wouldn't have felt it as much if Abbott-Pratt had narrated Raybearer, but the radical change of accent, dictation and pronunciations really left me wanting.

Thoroughly enjoyable sequel

This was an amazing sequel! I'm sad there aren't more book planned.
The only thing that I found a bit off to begin with was that the narrator was not the same as the first book. She still provided an excellent performance, it was just a little jarring at first. I will definitely relisten/reread this book again (probably in the near future).

Once you get used to the narrator it’s great

The story as a whole is amazing. I missed the last narrator because she had voices for each character that I was used to and familiar with but this narrator tried her best. She was American, so it wasn’t completely fitting but she tried.

It’s worth a listen and I think that this book series is going to go into the lists of classics.

A rich world with wonderful characters

I have really loved these books. Such wonderful storytelling and world building. I'm only sad the narrator changed from Raybearer. The narration of Tarisai is a very jarring mix of accents, including strong American at some points, which slightly ruined the authenticity. It took me a long time to adapt to the new narrator. However, I did get used to her version in the end. I just wish it had been the same voice for both. I would thoroughly recommend this series.

Great story, but disappointing narration

Really enjoyed the story - great conclusion to Tarisai's story. However, the narration was not a patch on Raybearer - they really should have kept the same narrator. The American accent was jarring and didn't suit the story at all, and the tone of voice had a hint of desperation or earnestness at every word that removed a lot of the fun/joy that was present in Raybearer. If Redemptor were rerecorded by Weruche Opia, it would be 5 stats across the board.
