In this 3rd installment of Dragonfury stories, Mac, is new to the dragonfuries. His story seems a little hollow...The 1st 2 stories with "B" & "Rycar" were unbelievable, but I felt I wanted to know more about MAC and his story...I do not regret spending my time to listen to it, and I am looking forward to the next stories of the other Dragon shifters - I just hope I have a chance to get to know them better...and when the story ends - it seems to end a little abrupt...Again, NOT a waste of my time, but I want more!!!
Good story. Pretty long...Good writing...Really enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more/listening to more in my future.
"The List Unseen" was Excellent!! Well written, well explained and helped connect all of the dots from the previous book "Seven Days". This story took us back to Taryn Elseerian's parents and what they went through to help make sure their son and the world would be ready for the Second Draeken War. It takes us to the beginning of when Ianna(Taryn's mother) & Mazer(Taryn's Father) meet and their journey of escape and adventure to help with what Ianna has seen in her forsight about the coming war. It is an action packed story full of this amazing journey they go on to accomplish Ianna's LIST of things that she/they need to accomplish before they die.
I LOVE a "strong" female heroine in MOST of my stories that I read whether they be Fantasy or just a good Adult Drama & Ianna is that and more...what I also like is that Mazer is a "true" partner/friend that shows her he is there for the LONG haul and not because it is easy because it isn't...His love for her is demonstrated through out the entire story. I enjoyed having the insight to Ianna's head and what she is thinking and feeling about the times she is fighting the battle that she cannot always say the "whole" truth...One part in the book that had me on edge and tears running down my face is when Mazer has had enough and Confronts Ianna about what she has been holding back from telling him...
This couple is a PERFECT match in more ways than one.
If I was TOTALLY honest about this book it would probably rate more like a "4.5" because I feel this book and their relationship calls for a good "love scene". The tension these 2 build up throughout their story is one that I feel could've exploded when they finally do come together. BUT I knew it was Not to be because that is not what Ben(the author) writes or at least hadn't written in the last 3 previous books...because there is some really good tension building with Taryn & you know who in the book "Seven Days"...
I love that even though I knew Taryn's parents end was coming - Ben had me right there to the end crying my eyes out and hoping, just hoping that maybe it would end differently...When an author can do that to me - that makes them an "unforgettable" author to me & I will ALWAYS pick up their books to read because I know they can pull those emotions out of me and just get me lost for awhile in my world of reading or as in this case the "World of Lumineia".
I LOVED this story and I want to THANK Ben Hale for becoming an author and writing about such a different world that is SOOO different from anything else I read...
Good Story and a bit mysterious...Good Drama.
I look forward to the continuing story and look to purchase it soon.
Perfect and LOVE OWEN and Granuale & Arla...wouldn't change a thing!! Kevin amazes me again!!
Luke Daniels is an absolute Favorite Narrator for Audible. He makes listening a PLEASURE. And reading Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Series is PERFECT for him!
I really liked Trenton. This story was not disappointing but I think I would have liked to have been in "Trenton's" mind a little more than what I was allowed in this book.
I can NEVER go wrong reading one of Jamie's books...She brings it! I also enjoyed seeing some of Travis in this story.
The Cover is beautiful!
I enjoy a book that is from more than one POV. I feel like I have the "full" story then. I really enjoyed this story of Miles & Tate. I was NOT prepared until I got "into" the book for a "tear jerker". I was not disappointed, but I can admit that Colleen did NOT hold back with her story and it is "FU*%ing" sad in a particular part of the book. I really actually liked Tate's brother...he really wanted what was best for his sister...
Good Story, but have Kleenex's on hand.
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.
