When you've lost everything you love, how do you fight the darkness?
Ava left Istanbul with a new identity, new name, and new magic she could barely control. Laid low by Malachi's sacrifice, she searches for help from the fabled Irina. But will the secretive women of the Irin race welcome or shun her? Ava's origins are still a mystery, and her powers are darker than any they've encountered before.
The Irin world hangs in the balance. And as the children of angels battle their own demons, ancient rivalries among the Fallen threaten to wreak havoc on earth.
Thousand of miles away, a warrior wakes with no memory of his identity or his people. Stumbling though the dark and twisted schemes of fallen angels, ravenous Grigori, and even his own leaders, he must find a way back to the one thing he remembers. A single voice calls him. Malachi has one mission.
"Come back to me."
I immediately began listening to The Singer by Elizabeth Hunter narrated by Zachary Webber after finishing The Scribe. I needed to know what was happened with Malachi and Ava.
The Irin Chronicles are addictive, with exotic settings, well-plotted world-building and a romance to swoon for. The story of the Irin, Grigori, and even the Angels have pulled me in.
Because Ava and Malachi’s story spans over the first three audiobooks and the overall series ARC it is necessary to listen to these in the order of their release.
In The Singer, Ava is taken into hiding to live and train with the Irina. Malachi searches for her and tries to regain his memories. The story was intense, but we also learned some history about the Irina and met these strong women.
Hunter mixed in some humor, passion, fear, and discovery. She kept me listening into the wee hours. Particularly the encounters with the Angels. We are quickly learning Ava is different.
The wait to see these two reunited was a killer, but wonderful and the narration only enhanced all the feels. I loved the combination of fantasy and romance weaved into this tale even as I hated the cliffhangers and three book aspects. The struggle was real..
Once again, the tale ended in a way that had me loading up the next audiobook. It was one heck of a ride. Ava and Malachi story will wrap up in the next audio, The Secret. Then the author assures me that in the rest of the series, each book delivers an HEA. Thank the scribes!
Zachary Webber narrates the first three novels which share Ava and Malachi’s story and they are brilliant. He gives voice to these characters capturing emotions and tone. His voice only enhances the suspense of an already well paced and intriguing tale.
Fans of exotic locations, mated romances, mythology, good versus evil and the power of love will want to grab this fantasy series.

Another great review, Kimberly.
I’ve only read book 1 so far but I#m asking for vouchers for my birthday and Xmas. 😉 Elizabeth Hunter is a great writer and I’m looking forward to catching up.
Everything by this author is really, really good. I’m glad you are trying her work now.

I would have liked the cliffhangers.
LOL. I know what you mean. It’s kind of a love/hate thing. That feeling of not knowing is a high of its own.
Nuts! Left you hanging again. I can see how this one will have to be one I’m prepared to binge at least the first few. Love what you’re saying about them so far.

I think this is a series that is enjoy. I’m off to check and see if our library system has them.

After your review of The Scribe, I added this series to my wish list. It’s now moving closer to the top. Great review, thanks!
it definitely sounds like I should wait for the series to finish, or else the suspense will kill me
