Publishers Weekly - Audio
Originally released in the anthology Once Upon a Midnight, Roberts’s short story is a sentimental fairy tale in which Aurora is destined to reclaim her dead parents’ throne from an evil sorcerer king who has subjugated her kingdom. As Aurora approaches a final confrontation with the sorcerer, she’s joined by the secret lover she has known only in dreams, and together they bring peace and prosperity back to the world. The talented Joyce Bean makes it easy for listeners to slip into the enchanted world of this romantic tale. Her narration is strong and she ably creates many voices, shifting smoothly from gentle feminine voices to deep male characterizations that are bewitching and utterly believable. Bean makes the most of the almost too sweet story in this polished, engaging audio version. (Aug.)

My first unabridged audiobook! I was put off of audios books a few years ago after I picked one up for a book in the middle of a series I was reading and it didn’t play any of the personal stuff I was so confused. Then found out the difference between abridged and unabridged and will never again buy an abridged version. Anyways was so glad I picked up this one! This one is about Aurora, a witch queen who will end the dark years once she takes her rightful spot on the throne. The kingdom is thrown into years of torment. The God like Draco, a powerful sorcerer, created a spell that would bring light back to the kingdom. This child who would bring light will be born at midnight on the darkest day of the darkest night and would rise up with her wolf to slay the serpent. A king and queen arrive that start to bring light to the kingdom by they are usurped by Lorkin who kills the King and forces the Queen to be taken out of the city before she is found and is ready to birth her child. That is the night Aurora is born. Before the Queen dies she charges her soldier to raise her ready to fight but not tell her she is the truthful one until it is time. After years of visions about her wolf, and her life Aurora has a new dream about the future and the queen’s soldier now realizes after 20 years it is time to tell her the truth. That she is a warrior witch that is the rightful Queen and it is time for her to fulfill the prophecy set so many years ago to end the darkness. This was a great short story involving love, witchcraft, fairies, and battle. Along with every short story you want it to be more but it didn’t need more for it to work. Definitely recommend it either in audio or in its Anthology Once Upon a Midnight.
