    "Great"

    Great indepth story line with rich well developed characters. Books flow perfectly from one to the next with no noticable discrepancies.

    "No spoilers"

    This is the last book in the trilogy. I couldn't put it down didn't want it to end. I love Hadrian and Royce. All of the characters were fully formed and what a treat, beware of the killings and twists. Masterful Mr. Sullivan! Just like your wife I want more.

    "Why, oh, why 😢"

    This last book of the series was very good. I especially LOVED the ending with Nimbus. As usual, the good guys and the bad guys were not always easy to pin down. I think the reality of "passing judgement is easy" was skillfully handled. I love this series and it's become a favorite. I have only one complaint... Why, oh, why do that to Hadrian at the end? 😭

    "Mediocre story had great promise"

    Um, "blows Tolkein out of the water"????? I should have taken that hyperbolic review as a warning.

    Those of you who loved this series already will hate me, but I'm not writing this review for you--it's for any other potential members like me who will be swayed by the glowing reviews and find themselves 60 hours and $45 later regretting their high hopes. Perhaps I'm the only one who was sucked in by the first part of the first book and then kept waiting for the promised great story...only to find a great deal of mediocrity, clunky plotting, lazy worldbuilding, and writing with none of the fat trimmed. But then again, Audible won't let you write a negative review after returning a book with which you were disappointed.

    I should've listened to the reviewer who warned that he/she found the endless scenes of people talking about things incredibly dull. I feel Sullivan had the writing skill and many elements that *could* have made made the series compelling, but after the initial adventure at the beginning of the trilogy, he got lazy with plotting and writing and just sped ahead to meet the demand (I believe these started out as self-published e-books).

    I began to lose my confidence during the first Tris & the Galarabrin (sp?) tale as it felt very much like a thinly-plotted cardboard story, but I held on. Then the second book...felt flat and hollow...basically, being randomly made up as the author went along. But I swallowed my disappointment finally (because I liked the protagonists) and bought this book, hoping it would make everything right.

    Instead, it promises much and delivers little. It gives off the sense that it's a great adventure, but it plods with endless discussions and backstory that never manages to convince. As much as I liked a number of the characters, they began to fell like stock characters and I started to care less and less what happened to them. Even the competent narrator began to sound bored, and it showed--his reading speed slowed so much that I had to listen on 1.5x for most of the 2nd and 3rd books.

    Such a wasted opportunity--again, probably due to hasty writing for the sake of commercial demand.

    "Well done!"


    This was a really well thought out trilogy where nothing is incidental. Every story and character has a purpose which is revealed in due time. You aren't able to predict all the twists and turns and intrigue. The characters are well developed and complex. They feel like old friends, now. Really good reader and performance. Would highly recommend this series.

    "It's a good story"

    I have to say I did enjoy the story. Narration was good; characters were well developed. This just isn't one of those series I will read over and over again. It was good for what it was.

    "Listened twice"

    Listened to all the Riyira series twice. I've never read or listened to books anything like this. The closest thing I've come to a story at all similar is watching Lord of the Rings. This was interesting, and the two main characters are worth following. Not something I would recommend to anyone I know, but I'm not an experienced listener or reader of fiction so I don't know how good these series really were.
