Description

Welcome to the candidacy. Where dreams go to die.

Twenty-year-old Ryiah is a black mage of combat, but she is not the Black Mage. Yet. She's had her eyes on the legendary robe for as long as she can remember, and in just one year she will have a chance at her country's prestigious - and only - tourney for mages. Too bad she is going up against a certain non-heir. The one person she has yet to beat.

Meanwhile Ry has a year to prove herself in her new role as a war mage and the prince's betrothed. Neither is quite what she expected and complications arise on both fronts. War is on the horizon, and with so many enemies the kingdom's fate is more than ever at risk.

The candidacy finally arrives, but it's only the beginning. Nothing can prepare her for what comes next.

Great story, but...

Really hope someone else narrates the next book. Listened to the 1st and 2nd books and I'm still enjoying the story with the 3rd but it was hard to get through it with the narrator's monotone. I actually ended up reading the book and giving up on the audio.

God this narrator was terrible

Amazing story, terrible narrator. I couldn't even tell if someone was talking or if it was the main characters inner dialogue, her voice was just so monotone. I would have loved if Melissa Moran narrated this one too. Amazing story, Rachel E Carter really knows how to rip my heart to pieces!!

Narration is stilted and detracts from the story

Where does Candidate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Good story with a good heroine! There are interesting twists and turns. I want to hear what happens next and I feel it is certainly above average. Just change the narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Candidate?

The heroine's determination to become the top mage.

What didn’t you like about Patrice Gambardella’s performance?

Unfortunately, the narrator sounded like a 5th grader reading. It was stilted and lacked emotion to the narration. She even mispronounced several words, which throws me out of the story.

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

Discovering her brother was a rebel and dying.

should have kept the first narrator

How could the performance have been better?

Should have kept Melissa Moran as narrator. Patrice was very dry, robotic.

Horrible preformance killed the book

I am not a harsh reviewer, most any books that I can make it through I will give 4-5 stars, sometimes it is subject matter or genre I am trying out. It is ok, I understand I am not going to like everything. Melissa Moran was fine in the first 2 after I speed it up to 1.1 or 1.2, I gave it 5 stars, I could get through it and it is a good story. This however was a complete gut job and the producer needs to be fired. It killed any semblance of the story, I had it up to 1.5 just to make it through. I came away with the feeling the story was just ok, instead of great story which it should be. I have listened to the sample of the 4th and will not purchase that, period. They both feel that they are being read by someone who is just learning to read, pointed, hesitant and drawn out. There was no performance to this book and if I could find a negative scale it would have clicked it. I figured after 3 chapters it would get better...it didn't.

Did Not like the performance

I had a very difficult time figuring out which character was saying what. The narrator’s voice was annoying and not easy to listen to.

just as good as the other two and a half

this book was a little bit darker than the rest so I anticipate that the next one is going to be even more so. I really enjoyed reading this book I also enjoyed the narration because I've done both read and listen. I believe that this book is probably the best in the series so far but I can't wait to read the next one

new narrator and I'm seriously disappointed

The story was wonderful but the narrator was awful. she changed the pronunciation of multiple names and you could hear the weird stretch of words when she turned pages. she also provided little voice acting to make the speakers distinct.

The Performance was marginally acceptable!! <br />

We enjoyed the story as we have listened to previous books. The Performance was barely more than read, with breath stops very poorly done and areas read without intonation. We lost track of which character she was speaking!

We will avoid this performer henceforth!

New person reading than former book in series.

The person reading this book is difficult to listen to. I was quite used to the voice I had heard for the main character Ria in previous books in the series. I have already purchased the rest of the series and hope they either go back to the original narrator or change up again. The series is not great, but better than mediocre. This narrator lessens my opinion of the series overall and definitely lowers it to mediocre at best.

Horrible voiceacting

The voiceactress broke this audiobook for me. She makes a lot of mistskes and sometimes mumbles.
