Description

The second novel in the brilliant new series from the best-selling author of Prince of Thorns.

In Mystic Class, Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy, Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.

All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a thwarted assassin, the ambition of a would-be empress wielding the Inquisition like a blade, and the vengeance of the empire’s richest lord.

As the world narrows around her and her enemies attack her through the system she has sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pull of friendship, revenge, ambition and loyalty.

And in all this only one thing is certain. There will be blood.

Excellent ! Histoire pleine de rebondissements !

L’auteur a su créer un monde surprenant ! Les personnages sont attachants ! L’amitié est un élément important de cette trilogie. Je recommande la trilogie.

Listen at 1.25 speed

I’m actually starting to like the narration (at 1.25 x speed, else it would be unbearable), so I have added one star for Performances since book 1 :-)

Yes!

Absolutely loved it! The narration is especially good. Helen Duff does an amazing job. The story is enganging and easy to follow. Can't wait for the next book.

Entertaining but predictable

Loved the first book, and the second one is still "good", but I found it rather predictable and the character development wasn't as good as in the first one. If you like the universe that the author created I can still recommend it.

Good sequel

Still a good story, although halting a little bit compared to the first book. Must read if you liked the first.

Better than Rd Sister

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

One of the best book I'resd listened to this year.

What did you like best about this story?

Lawrence introduces new interesting characters and give more substance to now ones.

What does Helen Duff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Duff's ok for women voices but a bit "flexible" for the men

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Hard to put down

Any additional comments?

Normally the 2nd book is a bit weeker than the first. this is not the case for Grey Sister. Keeps on getting better

besser als Buch 1

Buch 2 ist besser als Buch 1, weil es ein höheres Tempo hat und die Geschichte (weiter) voranbringt. Die Sprecherin ist sehr langsam, aber ansonsten gut.

A good book.

Though I personally did not enjoy Nona as thoroughly as I did lawrence other protagonists from red queens war and emperor of thorns, it was still excellent craftsmenship. The world is interesting and well build, the "magic" and the ninja nun school redemption damnation girlsclub story has a lot going for it. I liked the bigger picture this volume presented and the insights into the character of Glass and her maturing plot. Also to see how powerful the sisters really are was fun. Don't mind my 4 Stars. They are only relative to the 5 I have given red queens war. Book of the Ancestor still is top notch fantasy. And I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed for example the shattered see by Abercrombie.
