    Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

    Overall

    I have read every Cussler book. I picked this up on a whim after reading Valhalla Rising. It's the first time I've listened to Cussler's work. Cussler is very formulaic: the bad guys, the good guys, the beauties, and then there's Dirk Pitt the ultra perfect superhero. Despite all that, this was my favorite. The writing is descriptive, but not overmuch. The story moves along.

    After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

    "Second listen better than first"
    Overall

    Recently listened to the entire series a second time, and I enjoyed it even more. The second time you pick up the many subtle elements the author adds--it's one of the many reasons the series is so good. I loved King's Mate, the trios, Under Earth, Imtal; all magical places. I fell in love with Adrina, Xith, Emel, Vilmos, Seth, and the others like Edward the Troant. I loved hating Eravane, the dark lord, King Jarom. What a magical world!

    Adrina, Emel, Vilmos, Galan, and Seth face even greater challenges as their world is transformed. Vilmos, in his quest to become the first human magus in a thousand years, must control the darkness within him. Adrina must accept her place and work together with Emel to help the elves make their plea to Great Kingdom's council. What happens will amaze you.

    Henry says: "The VERY BEST"
    "Great 3rd book"
    Overall

    This book was a strong follow up to the first two. In many ways, I think it was even better. The writing continues to be excellent. I love how the characters are so well done even the minor ones. I feel I know Adrina, Emel, Seth, and Vilmos. I'm not ashamed to say my heart went out to Adrina from the start of this one. Xith continues to be a mystery, but I think that's as it's supposed to be. Lots of ongoing mystery, much action, and a whole lot to cheer. You'll enjoy this story immensely, it is even richer than the first two. I felt I was right there with the characters the whole time. I especially enjoyed king's mate and Edward -- he's a troant, half troll and half giant. Brilliant! I can't wait to listen to the next one.

    Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia, the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

    "Okay I guess"
    Overall

    Chronicles of Narnia is seven books in all, but this is as far as I got in Narnia. What disappoints me the most is how very, very simple, and almost linear the stories are. The only reason I started Narnia was because of a recommendation from a reader of Stanek's Kingdoms and Elves of the Reaches, which is a complex, richly detailed story. I may continue with the books some day, but for now I'm going back to the real thing.
