In the first novel of Melanie Rawn's Dragon Star trilogy, there is a devastating new challenge to the power of both the High Prince Rohan and Andry, Lord of the Sunrunners at Goddess Keep, as a mysterious and seemingly unstoppable invasion force swarms across their lands. For Andry it signals the start of a nightmare made real, the horrifying fulfillment of his long-ago visions of his homeland in flames, and he will draw upon even the forbidden sorcerer's magic in an attempt to destroy this enemy which is bent on the extermination of all Sunrunners.

I really enjoyed the first three in this series but after this one I can't help but think I might have been better off not knowing what happened next.

At first I had a really hard time following what was going on because of the huge number of characters and the fact that many of the characters are namesakes of other characters.

I did finally get really into the story but it became clear that the plot armor many lovable characters once had was gone. I will continue you on with the series, despite my misgivings, if/when it becomes available on Audible.

As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers--particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade--require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap in to a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening.

I've become accustomed to the voice actress in the first three novels in this universe and it is hard to hear another voice actress change accents and pronunciation of names.

Librarian turned sorcerer. Sorcerer turned hero. Hero turned puppet. The Solaris Empire found victory in the North and, at the cost of her heart and her innocence, Vhalla Yarl has earned her freedom. But the true fight is only beginning as the secret forces that have been lurking in the shadows, tugging at the strings of Vhalla's fate, finally come to light. Nowhere is safe, and Vhalla must tread carefully or else she'll fall into the waiting arms of her greatest foe. Or former lover.

I really enjoyed this series and was excited to see how Vhalla  would develop on her solo adventure. I really think this was a real opportunity for character development but it fell flat for me. I thought this title was very sad and did not measure up to the previous 3 titles. Vhalla was such a badass in Earth's End and that did not carry over well to this title. Vhalla seems to be a terrible judge of character though the whole series is basically about how she can see through to her dark prince. Every time I thought she was going to rise to the occasion and be a badass again she fell straight on her face...it is disappointing that the 5th book is not available so I won't know how it all ends.

Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda, and the path before them is winding and dangerous - what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed. Best-selling author Mary E. Pearson's combination of intrigue, suspense, romance, and action makes this a riveting listen for teens.

I enjoyed the story. The narrator spoke so quickly that I chose to listen to this at 85% speed which made up for the rushed speaking.

Fantasy of Freedom is the final action-packed title in the Tainted Accords series. This is the heaviest the veil has ever felt. But I am the strongest I have ever been. The veil is nothing. A part of me knew when I was taken from Osolis that when I returned - if I lived long enough to return - I would carry death and destruction to her doorstep. That is the irony of peace. It comes only after war. Warning: cliff-hanger ending. Recommended for mature young adults.
