Gram lives in the long shadow cast by his father, the late hero Dorian Thornbear. Struggling to find his place in a world where politics and wizardry appear to have replaced the need for men of might and main, he must make his own mark. Trapped within the seemingly safe confines of Castle Cameron, Gram faces both love and tragedy. His choices will not only define himself but serve to remind others of his family's legacy and the reason only a fool threatens those a Thornbear protects.

When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

I think it was really good about this book is that it kept the action on point like right when you think everything’s gonna be good then something comes up and it and it will keep it going very good. It’s been hard for me to find a book that is as good as kings dark tidings by Cal Kayde this book is close. Very good.

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer.

Tyrion was a good person who had been born to a simple family and raised with love, but the world has shaped him for a different fate. Twisted by violence and torture, he is obsessed with a relentless desire for vengeance, and he has sown the seeds of wrath in his children. The She'Har have offered him the opportunity to be a great leader and usher in a new era of prosperity and peace, but, despite his gentle beginnings, Tyrion is no hero.

Lusam grew up in the relative safety of the Elveen mountains with his grandmother. She taught him the basics of magic and discovered, quite by accident, that he possessed a unique skill never seen before: the ability to hide his magical aura from the mage-sight of others. Dark secrets surround Lusam's origins, and the dark agents of the Empire will stop at nothing to kill Lusam.

Don't read the reviews just listen or read the book.

It's a great story, filled with adventure, the right amount of details, great flow, right amount of characters. It just works really well and reads smooth.

I love the story it's really great. There are characters that you will relate to.

The reader of these books is really good. I like finding his voice and listening, it's funny tho because if you listen a bunch other stories that Alex has read flash back in my mind. He can only do so many different voices and in this one he must have done. 30 different characters it's quite a lot of dynamics to play that many characters

Argoth and Shim have only a short season before Mokad comes to annihilate them. If they're going to survive, they will need to raise an army of dreadmen and fell-maidens and train them in the lore. Argoth sends out a call to Groves throughout the western lands and begins to train Talen, Sugar, and 30 others. But Mokad isn't waiting. Mokad has already sent an armada with armies from four glorydoms. It has also sent its Guardian - a terrifying Divine everyone thinks is a sleth ally, coming with an invitation from Argoth himself to join Shim's men.

This book has a lot of characters so it can get confusing, but it's a good book anyways. I have been getting into these books lately to escape this world and this one really does take you somewhere else. I don't think it's the absolute best book ever and at times yes you can get lost in the details, but the story is good and entertaining and lots of action. It's really good to listen to.

Talen is in the hands of a powerful half-beast, a creature twisted for war, who is convinced the most merciful thing to do with Talen is kill him. But he might not have that chance, for Nashrud, the Divine sleth hunter, is hot on their trail. As they flee, the two can only hope the perils of the Wilds will save them, for if they are taken, both will become the tools of Mokad. Back on the coast, Sugar is sent to guide Argoth and a handful of warriors on a mission to assassinate Mokad's Skir Master.

It was a good tale, it's nice to get away from this world for a little while.

It has a good ending that wraps things up, some books leave you on the edge of your seat at the end, it's hard on my brain to do that and I like when things wrap up, yes there is still room in this ending for the story to continue but for now this book has come to a close. That is how a book should be.

What they discover there may very well change the balance of power in their favor against the Thule Empire. But their discovery will count for nothing if they cannot reach Lamuria in time to try and stop the massive invasion force sent by Lord Zelroth.
