    Description

    In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbors accepted her, but warily.

    Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally or her most dangerous foe. And when her long-gone sister, Rose, is revealed to still be alive, Thorn must make a choice - and risk her own life in the process.

    Faith Hunter paints a pretty impressive image it is easy to emerge into her characters and place your self in the story line. I enjoyed the series and will look out for new books from this Author

    let's use the entire the thesaurus!

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The interesting plot, strong characterizations, and uniquely intelligent religious speculation are deeply marred by the over use and misuse of excess (and incorrectly used) "vocabulary" words. Additionally the narrator's odd, randomly breathy phrasing is beyond maddening. It's a testament to how good the book is that I was willing to suffer through the narrator's mangling the pronunciation and phrasing.I say read these books, but read them to yourself.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Gold?

    Any one. Anyone at all. But I'd like to hear Luke Daniels tackle it.

    Breathless and twisting

    I found the breathless, mournful narration of this series irritating and mostly inappropriate for the story. Instead of casting the central characters as the strong leader she should have been, she became almost put upon and a victim. The story itself has some really great descriptive passages and exciting scenes but the plot is just a bit convoluted for my taste.

    Editing Aweful

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The Editing of the audio is awful. you can obviously hear where they cut the audio. Never hear that in other books.

    The story was a decent story, wish I would have read these instead of listened to them.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    That's it....

    What didn’t you like about Natalie Gold’s performance?

    it wasn't her fault it was the audio editing

    Good story line

    like the story line and the series, but at times want to fast forward thru her "visions" .

    Where is the rest?

    As always Faith hunter created a world full of great characters, plots, background etc.. being that this is the end of the series I expected more closure, the way things ended with thorn and her sister rose doesn’t sit right with me. She showed little care and compassion for someone she professed to love. Someone she knows has gone through years of extreme Torture! What happened to everyone and everything else? Where’s the closure for this series?

    It's ok

    it's not the best storyline. I listened to her Jane Yellowrock series. This one was before that and missing a lot of character. The restrictions put on the characters kind of hampered them.

    drags at times

    Narrator was ho-hum in some places. The author explains some things one too many times. Boring only necause of the narrator. She had no life in her. zzzzzzzz

    The Narrator is sooooo slow

    If you could sum up Host in three words, what would they be?

    End of arc

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Host?

    Faith's vision of heaven while Thorn was in the "Otherness"

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Natalie Gold?

    Maybe- The narration was so slow I had to increase my IPAD speed to 1.25 - then i was able to stay awake

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Devil gets his due.....

    Any additional comments?

    I am sure Natalie Gold is a great narrator BUT there is ZERO emotion, even during the fights, it's like Thorn is bored- I am sure it's hard to get a character down as good as the narrator does in the Jane Yellowrock series but.. Seem like she's been instructed to leave the personality out of her voice,

    This is the final installment of the series so far

    And probably forever, and while it gives some closure to a few open questions, the end is tailormade for additional books, that might never come. Reading this and or listening to it will only be advisable if you have the imagination of a fanfiction writer to finish and bind the loose ends you will be left with.

    If you do then this is a great "read" and fitting but tear-full end to a great fantasy saga.
