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.

Character development is extraordinary. I can only think of a couple books that have made me actually care about them. And definitely a few @!&? I didn’t see that coming moments in this one.

With the demon dactyl and its foul minions defeated, the war-weary citizens of the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear wish only to begin rebuilding their broken lives. Yet the specter of civil war haunts the ravaged land - and a specter more fearsome still. For the demon, though defeated, was not destroyed. And now its vengeful spirit has found an unholy sanctuary. The elf-trained ranger Elbryan Wynden presses north to reclaim the savage Timberlands from retreating goblin hordes.

Ending was a little anticlimactic and seemed like a series Ender even though there’s a ton more books. Wasn’t like I said god I have to get the next book to find out what happens.

The text message alerts are annoying and half the book is reading game prompts. The book could have done with less of that and more character development. 50+ days and not one concern about his real body or his friends searching for him?

I rarely write reviews, however, this mans brilliance in story telling and humor deserves such.

The characters interaction is perfection on a level I cannot describe in my merger words. The hints into character development are unparalleled. And the humor is extraordinary!! “Do you hear something boy?” Is all I can say.

Mr. Sullivan you sir are an exceptional writer.

Okay, don't get me wrong this is an excellent book. However I caution listen to the first 5-10 chapters twice. There are so many characters and storylines make sure you have them straight then listen on.

This was an amazing book.... till the end. Maybe the worst ending of a book I've ever read. Pretty much like someone falling over dead middle sentence.
