The end is near.
The Battle Academy and Mage School forces have joined, but they are outnumbered by Ewzad Vriil's army of mutated men and Mellinda's forest of monsters.
There are spies on both sides, assassins on the hunt, secrets to be revealed, and Justan's magic will be unleashed. But there is one thing they haven't considered. Even if they can somehow overcome Ewzad Vriil, will they be able to destroy The Mother of the Moonrats?

the story continues strong holding you til the end anticipating more. the different plots coming together then diverging wonderful listen
Amazing series! Looking forward to listening to the rest of it once it comes out on Audible!
All the Characters in this book flow seamlessly together! Up there with D.Rus Alterworld series Play to Live! Don't miss out on this one! Start with the Bowl of Souls Book 1!
This is a great, entertaining series. While "Mother of the Moonrat" wasn't my favorite in the series, it was still a very enjoyable listen. It was interesting getting the back story on Melinda (the moonrat mother) and some additional info on the prophet and who/what the prophet serves. I'd highly recommend starting the series from the beginning, and reading Hilt's Pride, a short story which does have an impact on the overall story.
The characters really make this series fantastic. Both author and narrator deserve the kudos for creating some fantastic characters. I doubt anyone could finish listening to this series without wishing they could be bonded to Fist (an ogre who, in my opinion, supplanted Shrek as the world's most endearing ogre)
I really can't give the narrator any better praise than to say that the series didn't suffer at all when he took over with book 2. It takes huge talent to take over partway through the series as seamlessly as Andrew Tell did with the Bowl of Souls. He is just a fantastic narrator.
This book has a lot to offer. Rich world, overarching plot. It falls short in the narrating. I can tell he tries but often he is monotone. It hurts the books.
New reader, just starting to dive into the adventures of books and the mysteries they hold. Believe it or not.
This books is the tipping point of all the events so far, battle, war, death, LOVE... you name it! There is just to many good things I could say about this book but I'd rather leave it to you guys to decide. If you'd made it this far in the series turning back now would be ridiculous and a waste of your time.
A lot of series I read start to fall apart towards the later books but not this one. Cooley has built a world and characters that continue to fascinate throughout. I never find my mind wandering when I'm listening. While I believe the narrator does an overall good job giving life to this story his misprounounciation of some words makes me a little crazy. The characters words don't always match the narration. For example, at one point he sort of shouted a word then read "she hissed", and I was like wait what? It didn't necessarily not make sense for her to have said it the way he did but it would have made more sense had he stuck to doing what the narration said. None of this makes me not want to listen to the book but it does create some hiccups if you're like me and get immersed in the world. You periodically get jolted back to reality really quickly. Also, I think the first few books or one of the books had a different narrator? And he reads a few of the characters significantly differently. Overall it is very very good though.
It was well written, and I was excited to see where the heros were going, however it felt like a lack luster end to an otherwise epic journey.
Well worth the read, just not as good as the build up.
congratulations ,you have a wonderful world of magic creatures ready to go exploring. the characters come alive with the talented voice of Mr. Tell.
