Pretty daring concept. Thought it would be clunky with all that DnD type thinking. By the time I was a ways into it I enjoyed it totally.

War is set to ravage the land of Illian. The elves sail from the east, the savage Darkakin rise from the south and Valanis, the dark elf, is finally free. Valanis would see the world plunged into chaos and drowned in blood, ready for the return of the gods that still haunt him. A new hope rises in the Red Mountains, where the last remaining dragons have been discovered. Gideon and Galanor, human and elf, will have to work together. Only then might they convince Adriel, the last of the Dragorn order, to intervene in the war to come.

You should teach other would be authors. I only read this genre. Character development is a thing most authors, I am certain, have never even heard of, let alone had explained to them. Great series of books.

It was like listening to a 7th grade orchestra. No expertise, at all, In story telling. A pair of kings who were actually queens. And obese princess become Queen. No one more adult than a 12 year old. All childish guilt and foolish secrets. I hoped this was a trilogy so I would be done. I was expecting some cross-dressers to appear.(glad they didn't) Won't listen any further.

I was certain that I was cursed to only choose complete failures for books to listen to. I thought that it would appear in my profile that I only like to listen to crap books. This has redeemed quite a bit of my optimism. The story was good, the characters are likable. Over all very well done, when's the next book.
