Seyonne, the slave-turned-savior of the acclaimed Revelation and Transformation, returns to fight evil and tame the demons within him - in the third novel in this "thoroughly original" (Starburst) epic saga.

The reader was great.
The prince is a funny character.
All of them.
In this last book the protagonist makes a few uncharacteristically unwise decisions that left me scratching my head. Those decisions seemed to drive the story to the desired conclusion the author wanted. The story got a little tiresome 3/4 of the way into it. The ending was good.
This was the wonderful end to a wonderful series. Totally worth listening too. Glad to have it wrapped up, unlike some other series.
"Very Well Done."
This is a very difficult question to answer. I have now listened to quite a few audio books. Some I have only managed to listen to for a very short time, only a few have I managed to listen to until the end. This is one that I listened to until the end, and I did like it very much. I can't say better than that.
I like character driven stories, and this story had wonderful characters, well realized and vividly portrayed.
Mr Stillwell did all of them well. If I must choose one, I would choose Seyonne.
Can You Spot The Real Demon?
I was a little apprehensive when I started listening to this series, as I had tried to listen to another of Carol Berg's series and was force to abandon it due to an appalling narrator. Kevin Stillwell gave this story a living, breathing presence. It was beautifully done, and now that I've finished this series, I'll miss Seyonne and Aleksander and all the other characters who were given life by a truly skill narrator. I will definitely visit these characters again at some point. You're probably wondering why I have only given 4 stars for the story. As with so many of my favorite authors, Ms Berg can't seem to end a story in a way that satisfies me, but aside from that, the story was well wrought. Oh how I wish that Kevin Stillwell had been the narrator who read the "Lighthouse" duology. If that had been the case, that series too would be among my favorites.
