Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the world needs a little chaos.

Holt and Ash saved the kingdom of Feorlen against all odds. Now they are outcasts, alone on an impossible quest to unite the Elder Dragons. But they are children playing in a game of Dragon Lords. Trapped between the riders, servants of Sovereign, and the scourge, even their luck cannot last forever. Their only hope is to advance their bond by any means necessary.

In Feorlen, Talia faces a world unaccepting of a rider queen. Her councilors will not heed her warnings of Sovereign. Foreign powers threaten war and bloodshed. Pleas sent to rider headquarters fall on deaf ears.

All the while Sovereign regathers his strength in an ancient fortress. Enthralled cultists swell his ranks. Disillusioned riders flock to his cause.

And his unwilling servant Osric Agravain scours the land for dragon eggs. There are new types of magic to be discovered, and Sovereign intends to control them all.

Only the mysterious half-dragon Rake has a plan to stop Sovereign. To pull it off, he’s going to need a team.

Unbound continues this best-selling dragon rider epic fantasy combining the best of Eragon and Pern with the hard magic of Brandon Sanderson and Will Wight.

Excellent

This was another home run in the continue story. Though there were some pros and cons
I’ll get the positive first . The story world building expands greatly and I love every inch of it.
Other characters grow more depth and become more interesting.

Cons in the beginning it is very slow going I didn’t feel like anything was really being accomplished until halfway through the book. It doesn’t have to be action packed every second but it just felt like I wasn’t getting any new information besides what ash was going to eat. Another thing that bothers me a little is how well holt can cook because he never started his apprenticeship but in the grand scheme it isn’t a problem because I like all the cooking that happens in the story.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series

Let down

Overall I skipped about half. Characters don’t develop at all and have the same issues over and over. Nothing is ever good enough for the main character, everything is his fault. Magic system doesn’t make sense. I would recommend not purchasing.

Nothing new here

As much as I loved the first book, this one was just more of the same. Nothing new really happens. Seemed it could have been much shorter. We get to see Talia's journey a bit more but it's mostly castle politics and I found that a bit boring. As for Mr. Kenny's narration, for the first time ever, I got a little confused with some of his character voices. Not sure what happened. Holt and Ash got a little confusing.

I also think we spent a bit too much time with bad guys, and that dragged a bit. Left me feeling unsatisfied at times, I found my mind wandering and reading faster to get to a good part only for the main heroes to always fail. Frustration.

This one definitely suffered from lack of purpose for our main characters.

Love these books

My only problem with these books is the narrators pronunciation of the word "ate" and since food plays a large part in the magic system it's said alot.

I love this series so much! Eragon was a favorite of mine for YEARS! and this new story is just as good! It enraptures you into the world and is so exciting! You love to hate the villain! You can’t help but root for the underdog main characters. Michael Miller is an excellent story teller and his characters are incredible!

amazing from start to end!

The return to the world of Holt and Ash is as immersive as ever, could not stop listening! The depth of the characters and their bonds, the pace of the story and the whole concept create the perfect dragon and rider universe. I truly feel that in this series the author have manage to combine all my favourite elements from other classic dragon tales such as the Dragons of Pern and Eragon. It will feel like a long wait for the next instalment of this series, but I suppose that will give me plenty of tie to cleanse and forge my ears to be ready for the next epic tale!

Definitely worth a read

Wow. What a sequel to the incredible book ascendant.

Michael r Miller is fast becoming one of my favourite authors and this book just adds to his already amazing collection.

An epic adventure for listeners of all ages and the beautiful narration of Peter Kenney entraps you into the story and leaves you begging for more.

If you are a fan of the eragon book series or a fan of the BioWare franchise dragon age then this is the book for you.

Well don Michael. I eagerly await the third book releasing

Awe inspiring story telling

I fell in love with the first book, Ascendant after finding it on Audible. I was so looking forward to the second book and was not disappointed by what I found. The story was full of intrigue, twists and turns and left me pining for a third book. The only thing about this book that I wasn’t happy with was I felt a connection to the story and the voices from the first book and for some reason, Peter Kenny the narrator changed the voices of the dragons Ash and Pyra 🤷🏼‍♂️ a small annoyance to me that only slightly took away from my enjoyment of this book. Otherwise a perfect story for anyone

Phenomenal Second Entry in the Series

The first book was one of the best reads I had done in a while so my expectations for the second was quite high and boy did it deliver.

The story picks up after the end of the first one where Holt and Ash go searching for the elder dragons and Talia being left to run a kingdom.

This time around there are 3 povs, Holt, Talia and Osric and timing wise it's pretty even for all though Holt does seem to get a little more than the others. There are also several new supporting characters that are introduced. I'm glad to say I enjoyed all the supporting characters, they all felt like they had unique personalities and contributed to the story in some way.

I'm surprised how much I liked Osric's pov, his character was enjoyable to read as you really for him in his precarious position. In fact I think he was my favourite, though all main pov characters were excellent.

More interesting worldbuilding happens in this book as there is a lot of travelling around. Really well done.

Story wise the plot grows more dense and intricate. I wont say more on this except that it builds greatly on the last book and raises the stakes.

Voice acting was also amazing, one of the best I've heard in fact. The narrator perfectly captured the inflection of all the characters.

Easy 10/10
