Publisher's Summary

Laney Herder and Lady Celeste are called upon by the Lupei of the Mountain Gypsies as their Soras to help free their leader who had been kidnapped, and to stop a war between the realms of Sparo and the Gypsies. Again, Laney is thrown into a world and politics that seem alien to her. She must follow her heart to do the right thing when all seems lost in a foreign land, when she stands against the swords of a nebulous enemy and the magic of one of the most powerful magic users of all time. Can patience and understanding prevail in the face of an impending war that could change the face of the modern world?

I will not yield!

Would you listen to Soras again? Why?

of course i would listen again! I love Ms Hollie's performance once again as she breathes life into the characters. giving them their unique personalities.

Who was your favorite character and why?

hmmm... I have to say... Mother Ranelle. she has this kickass and playful personality that just keeps you engaged and laughing.

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

I love that she gives each character their own personality which shines through in her performance. I like the attention to detail when it come to accents. I can see or rather hear that she really worked hard on this

If you could take any character from Soras out to dinner, who would it be and why?

oh my such a forward question... hmm if i were to pick one i would have to say... hmm... i can't seem to pick just one. Bex cause i want to learn more about his inventions and maybe we won't even eat dinner we'll just be tinkering with inventions. Laney cause I feel she would be really good company along with her wife Celeste. there's Sylvia who is also amazing. the children, because they are super cute! Dru because hey we might check out the waitress together. a conversation with Mother Udele would be super interesting too since i have a bunch of questions about the magik they have. Mother Ranelle because she's super fun! gah! so many characters i want to have dinner with! i can't just pick one, that is impossible!

Any additional comments?

please give this a listen to. the performance really is amazing and the story is something different and very enjoyable. 10/10 would listen again

Perfect escapist series

Enjoying this series for the strong female characters, the PG 13 romance, the egalitarian twist on knights of old adventures and budding friendships between the post impact clans of people.

I love this series!

Excellent! Please complete the narration for the other two. I enjoyed going on each adventure. I have no idea how many times I've listened to both Adept and Soras. The Great Mother is amazing!
The lessons learned of taught in this nook: Don't kidnap the matriarch and not expect some kind of retaliation. Arrogance will be your downfall. Don't rely on magic when a dagger will do.
Waiting on the aubible for Masquerade and Westland.

Epic Storyteller

Erik is my favorite writer. Each book I read of his, I think there’s no way he can top the last but he always does! A must read or listen.

I can't wait to read the last book in this trilogy. My feeling of just actually being there is just uncanny.

each book disfigures the main character

i do like the stories but all the destruction of the main character's looks and body with no personal life enjoyment lacks enjoyment for me to continue this series. All war, taking care of the poor in great detail and really no warmth in her relationship makes this series not worth continuing. The author lets you know the main character has a lover who is truly in love with her but shares no details of love. Just summarize when great details of war and destruction. Last book from this author for me.

Left me hungry for more.

The two main characters, Laney and Celeste, play true to them selves. The curiosity of being in a preindustrial magical world building combined with future history makes the intrigue and danger fascinating. I was just as entranced with this story and how it linked to Adept as I'm sure I will be with the next. Well worth the wait

Another great listen

In the 2nd book poor Laney discovers more about her heritage, and suffers more consequences. 2 years have past since the time she was discovered. There are many more pieces of the puzzle that are put together.
Personally I love that the main character and her partner aren't the focus but more a side story of the character, beautifully written and wonderfully narrated i recommend any one give this series a shot. I fell in love with the first and the only disappointment is that it ends, but don't fret there are 6 books in the series available on audible. I am up to the 5th and I am not disappointed yet.
