Publisher's Summary

On a fateful night five centuries ago, three mages made a desperate last stand, sacrificing everything to preserve the only hope of goodness in the beautiful, doomed land of Alasea. Now, on the anniversary of that ominous night, a girl-child ripens into the heritage of lost power. But before she can even comprehend her terrible new gift, the Dark Lord dispatches his winged monsters to capture her and bring him the embryonic magic she embodies. Fleeing the minions of darkness, Elena is swept toward certain doom - and into the company of unexpected allies. There she forms a band of the hunted and the cursed, the outcasts and the outlaws, to battle the unstoppable forces of evil and rescue a once-glorious empire.

An Amazing Journey

There are five books in this series, which I have both read and listened to. Elena Morin'stal is a beautifully imagined character that takes many a hard road on her journey to save her homeland. Beginning as a scared young girl and reluctant savior, she grows throughout the story into much, much more. It's a wonderful ride with tons of magic, monsters and adventure.

There are parts of these books that are predictable, especially if you are an avid fantasy reader and/or if you are a table top role-player. The language is not always perfect and sometimes you may wish for a few more details but the story is truly amazing and worth the time.

I do have to say that I do not like the reader for this particular series. I feel her voice was not suited to the story or the characters. Her reading does not lack feeling, mind you, only a quality that allows you to lose your awareness of the 'Reader' while they are reading. I had a hard time becoming immersed in the story because of this.

Overall, though, this is a great read and I highly recommend it to fantasy lovers. If you do not want to listen to it, I definitely recommend buying it (it is available for the Kindle). Following Elena and her entertaining, sometimes infuriating, group of misfits will not be a trip you regret.

Awesome story even better with audible

The best fantasy novel I have ever read plain and simple as that. The audio book was well performed and the voices she does are enchanting and give the story even more life.

mesmerizing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the story keeps you involved and entertained.

What other book might you compare Wit'ch Fire to and why?

The Four Forges has a lot of the same type of characters. The two stories are full of excitement and keep the reader waiting to see what new twists are coming. Who is friend and who is foe.

What about Jennifer Van Dyck and Kevin Pariseau ’s performance did you like?

Excellent job, I could tell who was talking without the introduction, each voice took on its character and never lost the connection!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The death of Joche and Elaina's family!

The sample does not do it justice.

In the beginning you might have the feeling you have heard this story before. Give it time, you have not. Delightful story, characters begin to flesh out. We are shown the duel nature that resides in all of us. I am planning to purchase all of the books in this series.

Couldn't press pause

Lots of magic and action. This book was a bit more graphic than I expected, but the story kept me on the edge of my seat.

Wow

Would you consider the audio edition of Wit'ch Fire to be better than the print version?

Yes because the reader was GREAT with her character changes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wit'ch Fire?

I had a few, but the when the Elf found the queen instead of the King, The writer and reader kept you engaged through the Fighting.

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck and Kevin Pariseau ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Jennifer, Yes.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Very big cry at certain times.

Any additional comments?

I'm very glad it took me so long to buy this series. I don't think I could bare to stop and wait for the next installments.

How have I not heard of this?

This book is really well written. It surprises me how there's not a fan wiki or web page or anything for it. I definitely recommend this for dark/epic fantasy fans.
