Summary

In the end, all kings must fall.

Anders is lost and without guidance. Merglan’s imperial grip tightens on the free nations. A resistance movement arises to combat venomous magic, but is it too late?

When Anders awakens in a foreign land, he finds himself far from the campaign in Southland and anxious to get back. The sapphire’s intoxicating grip has given him more than just a craving for power. Its tainted magic pushes him closer to the precipice of becoming more like the evil that he is foretold to destroy. In his attempts to resist the darkness, Anders must work through his pain before he can return to the fight he abandoned so suddenly.

After the allied armies are forced to disband, the five nations begin to feel the effects of the dark sorcerer’s imperial rule. Foreign invaders occupy Westland. Southland is flooded with orcs. Humans and dwarfs must band together in resistance. Unlike the elves, who can hide behind their magically protected walls, the other races in Kartania’s kingdoms are drastically affected by the absence of an allied dragonrider. With the fate of Kartania hanging in the balance, will these various allegiances unite to combat Merglan’s expansion? Can Anders work with his dragon, Zahara, to gain back what advantage they once had? Will Kirsten survive long enough to see Westland’s revolt? What has become of Ivan and those left behind in Southland?

good paced story

read using different accents to perform. the story is well linked to the others in the series. I do not think it would be as good if read on its own.

a new favorite author

I am enjoying this series. I listened to the first 2 books for free on audible and used a credit to listen to this one. I enjoyed the adventures very much, I like that the characters are growing throughout the series and that although new characters are introduced the author continues to tell us what the other characters are going through as well. I can't wait to hear the last book and already know that this is one series that I won't mind listening to again. thank you.

1 credit in is worth it

Fun listen for folks who enjoy dragons, elves, dwarves and humans. Some of the story lines are very easy to read while others keep you guessing. I know it’s coming toward the end of the story arch and I’m wishing this was only the end of book 2. Enjoy listening.
