Brandon has done it again! Incredible book and engaging story, but more in a sci-fit setting than a fantasy one. Only thing I hate is that the next book in the series isn't out yet. Very emotional at time as I find myself almost crying a couple of times. Can't wait for the next part!

Years have passed since the last of the Dark Gods was defeated, and Lothion has entered an age of peace and prosperity. Mordecai’s oldest children have already begun to make a place for themselves, and his youngest are on the cusp of adulthood. By every outward measure, his life has been a success; he has earned his reward. However, Tyrion, the first wizard and brutal liberator of mankind, has returned with an agenda of his own, and dark things continue to stir at the edges of civilization, threatening to undo Mordecai’s accomplishments.

I think the last half of the book is at the beginning and vice versa. I was thoroughly confused while listening to the book, but figured out that the book was out of order, at least the audio version. hopefully they figure it out and put it back together the correct way

Imagine for a moment that you are a Dragon. A creature of unimaginable power, unending intelligence and strength, and you've just woken from 10,000 years of slumber. Worse yet, you've awoken underneath a city: Boston, an alien and strange place that defies everything you've ever known. Your last memories are of primordial forests, erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world, faeries, witches, vampires, krakens, and monsters that feared where you turned your eyes.

The world is falling to the burning shadow of the Possessed and only the power of a battle mage can save it. But the ancient bond with dragonkind is failing. Of those that answer a summoning too many are black. Black dragons are the enemy of humankind. Black dragons are mad. Falco Dante is a weakling in a world of warriors, but worse than this, he is the son of a madman. Driven by grief, Falco makes a decision that will drive him to the brink of despair. As he tries to come to terms with his actions Falco follows his friends to the Academy of War.

This book is like a trilogy in one book. Great story, just the voice actor does ok for the most part, but when the text says a character yells or bellows, he does this loud cracking whisper and it drove me nuts for some reason. He does varying degrees of a French accent for the differing book accents and it was ok, but something seemed off at times. Also pronounced certain words oddly, like legion was pronounce lay-sion instead of lee-jun. Maybe I'm being nitpicky, but there it is.

I loved that it was a complete story arc and it was very long, but not hard to listen to otherwise.
