I have really enjoyed this series...I wish there were more...I fell in love with this family and the girls they ended up with. I love the loyality that these boys/men had for their families and girls. I loved that they were NOT perfect and had REAL issues to work through.
I recommend this series for anyone wanting a nice listen with a great story about relationships and family. (with some toughness)
Ben Hale did it again and even better with his 3rd book in The Chronicles of Lumineia. In this 3rd story about Lumineia and the The Second Draeken War, I have gotten to know some of the main Characters better like, Taryn, Liriana(Liri), Trin, Maemi(Mae)and Brayen, Jack & Ciara. I also get to meet some new ones and truly respect their willingness for sacrifice in order to save the RACE from becoming extinct. My favorites were Jack, Terran, & Leary. But each Character plays such an important part in helping. I Love all of the different races Ben has included in this story from the Dwarfs, Druids, Amazons, Dark Elves, and Giants. There is soooo much to take in with this story that I will want to listen to it again soon to just be able to sink it all in completely! This story brought out many emotions from happy, fear and sadness, but in the end I was THRILLED that I took the time to buy it from Audible.com because it was WELL worth my time!!!
This series is one of my "TOP 3" favorite UF series EVER!!! the story continues to get better and better and the relationship with Aticus and his wolfhound and his new trainee to be a druid Granuale is top notch. When Cyottee comes back into Atticus's life it really stirs things up...The creatures and magic are very well described and feel like they are in the room with you...The morgan is as always Very important in the story...Hell is Gross But essential in the story and kinda sad...Love Kevin's work!!!
Elseerian's develops even more in this 2nd book of the series. He is a very unlikely hero of this series, never wants to draw attention to himself and is now beginning to acknowledge he may have feelings for a fellow fighter. Ben Hale takes this story in a direction that gets the entire World ready for battle against a Very Evil Army threatening the extinction of all races. I personally LOVE the character Jack (a thief, but VERY needed in this fight) I love how Ben developed the "General" of the Army and how he comes to earn all of the races respect despite his age...and OH my, the Phoenix, is AMAZING=I am in love with this series-next to Kendall Grey's "Just Breathe" UF series and Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid" UF series - I have my top 3 UF series NOW!!!
Warning though: I never like it when a main character is loss in any book and one of Fav's does loose his life - and I did cry....
Listening to this book was like sitting down and watching a really good movie, thank you, Ben!!!
This is my 1st time listening/reading Ben Hale's work and I LOVED it!!! Very thorough and very captivating. I loved this 1st book getting to know the characters and not leaving me hanging too much at the end. It left me knowing there is more to come and that the characters have even more developing to do.
I am an AVID fan of Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid" series...I did not think I would really want to read/listen to another "fantasy" type book of this sort, but after meeting Ben in Florida at Indie Book Fest and then deciding to give his books a try - I am definitely a FAN...
GREAT story - interesting Characters and GREAT Villain...Perfect balance of human, magic & power...
I plan to download the 2nd book right away!!!
I look forward to finding out HOW it goes down...
NOT a waste of time to check this one out...Worth every minute!!!
Thank you Ben.
I thought the 1st book was good BUT wow...this 2nd one is even better...I did not realize there was so much more that Gabriel needed to go through and he is and does and the narrator has an EXCELLENT voice for this reading - LOVE this story!!!
Loved this book and narrator was great fell in love with characters and felt like I was right there with them! If u like rock and roll and some awesome sex verbal scenes u will LOVE this book!!
Story VERY GOOD! and the Narrator was DEAD ON with the accents...he had to do many from male to female to scottish to british to back woods voice and it was extremely great to listen to someone that read with sooooo much emotion that maybe the characters did have per the author....Loved it and recommend all of Kresley Cole's stories...but this one was really different and good and NOT predictable...
Not a bad story...I will continue to listen to Lynsay's Vamp stories because they are reliable in that I know I will overall enjoy the listen...good Narrators, decent story lines...but always a little preditable...but safe....meaning I know it won't be a wasted credit to use on one of her books...Usually aren't my favorite stories, but I enjoy them...
Anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon is NEVER a waste of time!
All of her stories are different enought that you get succered in and see how different characters play into each others lives!
I absolutely LOVE Nick Gautier in this book and can NEVER have enought of him in any of Kenyons stories!!!
If you love Kenyon's stuff this story is different enough to be "fresh" material but with some of our favorite past characters!
Love Stark - Love all the characters and how they are all playing into the story. It is amazing to me that after so many books the stories do NOT get tiring. The Author keeps us guessing and allows for some heartache but also for some forgivness and Love.
I am looking forward to more stories about how the group carries on!
