Survival is just the beginning.
Blaine McFadden endured six long years in the brutal Velant prison colony, exiled for murder. War devastated his homeland of Donderath and destroyed the magic on which the Ascendant Kingdoms relied. Now Blaine and a small group of fellow exiles have returned to a lawless wasteland, where unrestrained magic storms wreak havoc and monsters roam free.
Yet, amidst the chaos, rumors persist of a new magic that could restore the kingdoms. But the key lies with a dangerous, ancient ritual and a group of vanished survivors. Now McFadden's only hope is a small, desperate, quickly rallied army. Together they must make one last stand knowing that if they fail, the civilization of the Ascendant Kingdoms dies with them.

My name is Chris and I am an addict.
I actually enjoyed the first book, but this book seemed to just drag on. There were a few too many scenes that were just a little too obvious. Some things happen in the book that I was looking forward to, but they were very anti-climatic. Some of the main characters in this book also take a large step backwards. There is a good amount of whining from one and others make some really unbelievably stupid choices.
The Headline is all you need. This book/series is terrible! Run away fast and far. The Character's get more exotic but no less weak and whiny. Then we get a romance forced on us. The vampires are still there, although outside of the two main ones they really aren't. The constant travel to supposedly randomly places where they find anything but random things. Everything falling perfectly into place without any struggle. Then forced struggles. Then...Ah. So bad!
I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.
Of all the audio books I've listened to I would put this book as a solid second place.
This book reminds me of a Shannara-esc world, but also a bit of The Hallows.
He has a very nice voice to listen to, though every now and hen character voices get mixed up.
Apocalypse, Magic, War, and Romance.
This is the sequel to Ice Forged and I loved it. I cannot wait until the next book comes out!
