Summary

Gavin must stop a man who shares his training and abilities.

Gavin has left the only friends he’d ever made to study his El’aras magic. Though he may share their heritage, he quickly learns that he’s not El’aras.

When an attack targets them, and has the ability to counter any El’aras ability, Gavin is all that prevents certain devastation.

Understanding the attack and who is behind it leads Gavin to uncover the truth about his mentor - and there is much Tristan never shared.

There has been another Champion, and he’ll stop at nothing to claim a destructive power he believes he’s fated to control.

Only Gavin stands in his way. Though Gavin might not be the first Champion, he is the only Chain Breaker.

Good...but not great.

The series itself is good. It's not the drama fueled saga that Wheel of Time is.Nor does it compare to anything by Sanderson. However, it still holds its own. I wish the words, "core reserves", weren't used all the dang time. I also wish that there was better character development. The relationships between characters feels awkward and forced. IMO it could be done better.

That being said, if you are looking for a filler series that's not too difficult to keep up with, then this book series is good for that purpose. If you are looking for anything more involved and thoroughly developed I would suggest something else.

This is the perfect series for a road trip with kids in the backseat.
