This is the dark protecting the dark story. But the Dirge plays her roll very well, both sides of it. Dirge/Kallie is a most complicated character having inherited many of Rellan's, a preist, powers upon his death so she can fight those he could not due to his faith, but still her best friends are two clerics that try and help guide her.
This story twists and turns more than a roller coaster and has action galore. Dirge/Kallie is a strong and complex character that is well put together and will surprise you in many ways.
The audio narrated by Kara Kovacich Stewart is awesome and not one to be missed. Ms. Kovacich Stewart does such a great job on all the different voices for each character, I never get lost, it is as if I am right there living the story along with the characters. I really love listening to audiobooks, that Ms. Kovacich Stewart narrates.
