In the wake of a devastating attack, an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs - finally allowing them to emerge from hiding and openly oppose the dark forces massing against the land of Andarra. As the Augur Davian and his new allies hurry north toward the ever-weakening Boundary, however, fresh horrors along their path suggest that their reprieve may have come far too late. His ally in the Capital, the new Northwarden, contends with assassins and politicians and uncovers a dangerous political secret.

This series is incredible. It's got great action. Love the magic. It is a true epic fantasy. Not sure how it will only be a trilogy.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

This is a great book. I was a little surprised by the multiple very detailed sex scenes because the other books never went into so much detail!

Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

What would have made The Invaders better?

Don't buy this book when it is only 6 hrs 54 mins long. It is not the whole book. It ends at page 243 on a 400+ page book. I re-downloaded it to see if I was mistaken, but I am not. All of his other books are 12+ hours. The parts that were done were incredible. Will be a great book as soon as they get the second part to it.

What could John Flanagan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get the rest of the BOOK

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Good

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger that it wasn't all included.
