Publisher's Summary

The battle lines have been drawn.

The An’Dari and his allies have embarked upon their quest for one of the missing Stones of Aer. The lost artifact of legend may hold the key to saving those trapped in the Grey. Pursued by the enemy, the survival of an entire ancient race is in their hands. 

With the summer months fast approaching, defiant mercenary companies continue to clash with the forces of the new Protectorate Empire. The prince’s army, now camped at the Dwarven fortress of Celig Helme, hones its skills in preparation for all-out war. In the lands of the Northern Council, Elizabeth Mayne continues to navigate the political arena in Hallenford. Meanwhile, in the occupied port city of Edentor, rebels plan the daring rescue of a foreign noblewoman. 

And, fulfilling a Silveryn prophecy, an infamous name from the past reaches out from the shadows - Kaleris has returned.

Finally

Moss finally rewards the dedicated reader with an almost brilliant storyline in the third novel. He seems to be hitting his stride as he develops his story and characters.

Simon Vance is brilliant as always.

I am looking forward to the 4th novel.

An excellent installment

Following along with the story and the various characters was tough at first, especially in the first and second books. No longer thankfully. The plot continues to thicken and flow. All paths eventually converge though and the author still seems to have some tricks up their sleeve.

the ending felt rushed

I enjoyed the books leading up to this, comma but this book was less. The center of the book thru of the book was battle after battle after battle in confusing and overlapping ways that made it difficult for The listener to track. Most disappointing of all is the ending, The book seems to be taking a page from the sopranos and ending With at least half a chapter left to write.

A good listen.

Overall, very well done, my only criticism, if any, is the chapters jump from person to person a little much for my tastes. I prefer to have a little longer with each character.

However, that's just my personal opinion; overall, it's well done.

a waste. bk 4 synopsis is all you'll need.

I'll say the story doesn't move. too many similarly named characters in similar situations. spending too much time with inconsequential interactions and glossing over huge changes in the landscape of the story. mr Vance is incredible but the story feels like 3 books or a better 3rd would have been better. I wanted to know what happens so I had to listen at double speed to get through and honestly I should have just stopped read the synopsis for book 4 and known everything important to know from this poor entry. hoping book 4 is better

*Spoiler! *

I can't believe they left it on a cliffhanger but i seriously can't wait for the next book! The only issue i found was that our dear Simon would occasionally forget what accent he was using for certain characters but aside from that, a spectacular story

Vengeance is All We Have Left

There is everything to play for in this next chapter. The rebels' numbers are dwindling while the Protectorate's have expanded across all the races. It is a race against time for Alessan and C'Aelis to find the Aer stone while the approaching madness of Gavin's mind distracts him. The fourth book should be a stunner.
