Publisher's Summary

An ancient enemy rises from the seas....

Brax and Carmen are exploring the ocean when they come across the dead body of a dragon on an island. He was an outcast, living far away from Drachia, and he was only recently killed. It turns out that the old enemy - one that the dragons believed were all destroyed - have returned. And they want revenge, one dead dragon at a time.

The only way to defeat the mightiest of giants is to face him on his home turf. It is a land like nothing Carmen has ever seen. On a royal mission, Carmen travels to the land of giants, a fabled country that no mortal has visited for thousands of years...and lived to tell the tale. It will be a challenge unlike any other. It's a good thing she has Thord on her side and one more ally she never dreamed she'd see again.

Includes the next two episodes in the Dragon Assassin series: Old Enemies and Downfall.

PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS MORE

I listened to all 4 volumes back to back over a week's time. I love these stories. I love the world Arthur Slade built. As for the main characters.... Carmen is.... well Carmen is easily the dumbest assassin I have ever met (in a literary world). She makes stupid choices, does things that defy logic for someone raised to be ruthless, and she sets herself up for a lot of the terrible situations that she finds herself in. But it is also what makes her relatable. She isn't perfect and she knows it. She isn't ruthless. She has a good heart, and rebels against the role that life shoved her into and makes her own way. And the evolution of her relationship with Brax is amazing. Also, I live for Brax's snarky comments and mean retorts. My only comment that is remotely negative is this....
SPOILER....

Ok I warned you. The whole Zarek being muktiple giants and yet they were "one" thing was a bit confusing for a few minutes, mostly because it came out of nowhere, but after I got myself sorted, it was fine.

So please tell me there will be more to their story! I know supposedly this is the end but supposedly they said that at the end of book 8 (volume 3).... so I am hoping this is a lie! Because this 42 yr old lady needs more!

I can’t get enough

This book is the reason I purchased audible. Well, the first of this series is. I’m not into dragons, or magical stuff, typically, but since reading or hearing the first of this series I cannot get enough.

The Political One, of course. No escape from them in fiction, apparently

I made a positive review on the first book in this series, because it appeared not to try to invent political parables in the same ways as so many other books. Well, it was apparently saved up for this book instead.

(spoiler, if you want to call it that)
The queen gets on her knees for a mage giant and begs forgiveness for her *ancestors* doing dreadful things to the giants, and for enslaving the humans. Even going as far as offering “reparations.” Does that seem like a thinly veiled political allegory for any political beliefs in our current times? I’ll leave that judgement to you.

Many people go to fiction in order to enjoy make believe, not to listen to the same political preaching we hear day in and day out, forced on us from every possible angle. It’s just depressing that fantasy universes must be tainted with this, so that there can be no escape.

When every paper handed into teachers require a specific political message, is that programming? Is that propaganda? Are those students actually taught history? .. Or are they simply told what to believe, praised when they parrot it, and bullied if they don’t sing along with the same tune in every aspect of their lives? Does that sound like freedom, or does it sound like slavery? Again, the answer is your own.

This was a fantastic series to binge listen to. Clare Corbett's narration really made the series come alive. I truly hope there will be additional books in the series.

Amazing series

This serial story keeps getting better and better. This fourth installment really took a twist and leaves you falling from a cliff. Paired with an amazing narrator you really do have the perfect series.

I was completely blown away with this last volume!’ Especially by the cliff hanger ending. Arthur Slades’s writing is witty, cleaver, just the right amount of snark, and comical.

In this book we find out a lot more about Dragon kind. We learn some about their culture, their history, and their lives. We also learn a lot more specifically about Brax.

I truly believe this has become a new favorite author and series. Time to subscribe to his newsletters and podcast.

The Action, Excitement and Humour rolled into one

I truly enjoyed this series, As a Fantasy fiction fan of Dragon stories, I got hooked into this series after the 1st book. I loved the funny smart remarks between each main characters, As a sample, I cannot help but smirk when I read/heard the following :
the following:

The brother-sister humour
"May I remind you, sister," his voice was gravelly and grave, "that the victors write the histories. No one talks about the giants fighting a final glorious battle when they were driven from our shared land."
"You're right, brother," she said. "Maybe you can go to the library, take out those books, and drive the giants away by smacking them about the head with our version of history." She chuckled, but it sounded a little crazy.

Funny barb exchanges between allies in the midst of defeat
"Yes, we fought," Thord said. "We fought against invisible enemies. I fought my father. My brother. And... and Carmen." "Interesting," Brax said. "And if we had all the time in the world, your family squabbles would enchant us."

How I wish I read these books before so I can develop the wit to express myself like this.
After Book 10 I felt kind of wishful that there were more sequels to this.
