Storie isn't bad but the narrator is bad and made it very difficult to listen to the book. if they change narrator I would listen to upcoming books.

I loved this whole series of books good detail throughout the entire thing until the last chapter. All of a sudden they rush the ending with no detail and it's a disappointing ending if you ask me.

A Fate of Dragons (Book 3 in the Sorcerer's Ring) takes us deeper into Thor's epic journey to becoming a warrior, as he journeys across the Sea of Fire to the dragon's Isle of Mist. An unforgiving place, home to the most elite warriors of the world, Thor's powers and abilities deepen as he trains. His friendships deepen, too, as they face adversities together, beyond what they could imagine.

This was a great read! I'm rather picky about the books read I like to check out the reviews first you get an idea of what I'm looking at. Most of the reviews on this were really good except for a couple that says it was repetitive and not a good read I found it to be the opposite. The book were entertaining, captivating and well written with great narration. Highly recommend and I'm looking forward to reading the other 15 books in the series.

Elseerian, book one: The assassination of heroes was once a warning...for an invasion that nearly destroyed the world. Nations were slaughtered, cities were erased from existence, and defending armies were crushed into oblivion. With hundreds of thousands dead, the races stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors in its wake.

Really enjoyed the set of books but unfortunately I have to say I was disappointed in the wrap up of the book. The wrap-up of everything was done in A hurried get it over with fashion. I think it's nice to have a good description of everything that happens after the final battle (the rest of the books were very descriptive of everything that went on). Other than that the set of books is highly recommended.

it was a good storyline and a good book but way to wordy. it could have ended the series with two books instead of 3 if they just stopped over describing everything and running and on but if you can get over that part it really is a good storyline.

Overall books were good. Storyline was solid but it was a bit wordy could have ended the series of books quite a few chapters ago without babbling on. But overall a good read.
