    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    The Second Draeken War has yet to occur, but his victory is assured. When all life stands on the brink the nations will be forced to gather but it will be too late. The army built to exterminate them will not fail in its purpose. Unless the future is altered. Eleven impossible tasks will give the races a singular hope, to defend their lives as one people.

    Story

    "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...

    James has initiated Bianca into a dark and drugging world of passion and pain. He taught her about her own submissive, masochistic nature, and she fell swiftly and deeply in love with the undeniably charming and impossibly beautiful Mr. Cavendish, but a painful misunderstanding and the return of the brutally violent demons of her past have combined to overwhelm Bianca, and, confused and hurt, she pushes him away.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt. Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

    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!

    When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn't want love, she doesn't have time for love, so that just leaves the sex.

    Story

    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.

    Forced to ally, the world has gathered against the endless night. Numbering over a million souls, they are the survivors of nations. They have armed themselves with weapons and magic, and defend the strongest fortress every built. Led by a supreme strategic mind, the races have organized into battalions, designed unique tactics, and fortified their position beyond any conceivable need. But now their foe is at their gates, and to a man they cling to the same hope, to survive until Elseerian can defeat the source. The best they can last is Seven Days....

    Story

    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!!!

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    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!!!

    Story

    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!!!

    The assassination of heroes was once a warning... for an invasion that nearly destroyed the world. Nations were slaughtered, cities were erased from existence, and defending armies were crushed into oblivion. In weeks, all life stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors... and rumors. As the centuries passed the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. Across the southern sea a gifted young man is completing his training.

    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.
