I have read all of her books as they came out on Kindle and they are so wonderfully new and refreshing! This is a must read! The female narrator does not have a nice male voice, so I had to get over that but she did alright none the less. I do think the book would have been better to listen to it the male narrator would have read the whole book! I hope Audible publishes the rest of her books because I enjoy both written and audio formats.

After the War of the Gods, the demons were cast out and fell to the world. Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts until the gods sent the great hero, Ramrowan, to save them. He united the tribes, gave them magic, and drove the demons into the sea. Ever since, the land has belonged to man, and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell, leaving the continent of Lok isolated.

Great book. But I suggest you not buy this if you want a book 2. He went off and wrote/co-authored other books and left this in the dust. I even bought the hard back as well as Adio, anticipating a sequel. But no, it never came. So if there is no continuation, the book is fire paper. Saddens my heart just as the MHI books went down hill. I hope the author gets his head on straight or stops writing.

Rezkin is an elite warrior who aims to restore order in Ashai after Caydean's attack on the King's Tournament transformed former allies and trading partners into enemies. With no army and only a ragtag group of refugees, Rezkin must wrest control of the kingdom from the mad and powerful usurper, who seems bent on destruction, and this may not be the biggest challenge. If he fails, the kingdom will be ripped apart, and Rezkin will have violated Rule 1 - to protect and honor his friends.

A bit disappointed in the third book but I guess every book can't be awesome. The gist of this book could have encompassed one-fourth a book. Maybe less. Very slow and not much gets accomplished. Thus the three stars. But as a continuation, it should be listened to or read about it from the book forums online. It is starting to feel like a never ending story, which I do not like, but I will cross my fingers it is not one of those because I will lose interest fast. Not worth the money in audible but Kindle book might be fine if you just read then skip parts.

I have read Gemmell books for years now over and over again. I even listened to the original CD's back in the day! These are EPIC novels that are so well done and timeless. The Drenai and the Reganti books are my favorite ones. I do plan to buy all my favorite books and have a lot to look forward to. Oh, I have collected most of his books in paper back over the years so there is no worries about buying these if you love EPIC Fighting/swords/monsters/honorable stories!

Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but longstanding enmities dividing the Rhune make it all but impossible to unite against the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess renders them indistinguishable from gods? The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind.

Oh Man Alive that was AWESOME! Now, I have to say there is a cliffhanger but I shrug at that reality because this is a series and you are crazy if you did not read ALL the books from the beginning. I appreciate the author telling us, the fan readers, why it took longer than anticipated. I just hope he can give us the next one in the time he alotted. Now to reread a few books to match with the Riyria books!!!

For most, a plane crash means the end of life. For Dusti Dawson, it's just the beginning...Dusti and her sister Batina survived the crash, thanks to a couple of brothers who are equal parts menacing and muscled. She'd be grateful...if they hadn't turned out to be delusional kidnappers, who believe Dusti's grandfather is some monstrous halfbreed creature bent on murder. Turns out Vampires, Lycans, and Gargoyles do exist - and they've been crossbreeding to form two hybrid races.

I am having a hard time switching to this series because her other book, yet simple, are awesome! Hard for me, a romance and fantasy book fan, to have my mind accept these VLG's type of "monster".

Gina MacDonald may be pregnant and on the run, but she will do anything to protect her unborn child - even go up against a dragon-shifter. While hiding in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, she soon notices the black dragon perched on the nearby hills. She debates if he is related to her past or not, but then a pain overcomes her and the dragon finally swoops down to help. Despite her determination to stay clear of all dragon-shifter males, his touch not only helps ease her tension, it sets her skin on fire.

Abigail Swish's life is nothing to brag about: gang-ridden city, orphanage style accommodations, and a matron who's kinda on the evil side. Not that she has to worry about that for much longer. She'll turn 18 soon, and then it's goodbye compound, hello dangerous streets of New York City. Of course, as her luck would have it, she doesn't make it to 18 before her world is turned upside down. One ambushed meeting with an accent-bearing, sword-wielding stranger, and suddenly her entire life as she knows it is a lie.
