In a pleasing voice, Jessica Hayles narrates an epic tale set in the days when knights, magic, and royalty ruled the land. Three young women are bound together by war, prophecy, and love: Prince Hal, the daughter of the new Aremorian queen; Lady Hotspur, a knight who is Hal's lover; and Banna Mora, Aremoria's deposed heir. This is an ambitious production for even the most seasoned narrator. Newcomer Hayles gives an admirable performance. She imbues the intense scenes with emotional gusto; however, her pleasant, soothing tones easily lull the listener's mind during descriptive passages. Additionally, there are numerous odd pauses throughout the otherwise respectable narration. Because of its length, this audiobook is best for fans of grand fantasies.
