The War of Souls has ended, but Krynn is still rife with conflict. The elvenland of Silvanesti is no more, replaced by the Minotaur colony of Ambeon. A new emperor sits on the throne in Nethosak, his dark Protectors backed by the magic of the Forerunners. Resistance to the empire is all but crushed. The rebellion's last hope, Faros, struggles with personal demons. But, unexpectedly bolstered by the very gods he has renounced, the legitimate heir rises up against obstacles all too real as well as others fantastical.

The way the 3 books were written was incredible. I’m very happy with the ending of the book. Definitely will listen to this series again.

Long sources of mystery, imagination, and inspiration, the myths and history of the ancient Mediterranean have given rise to artistic, religious, cultural, and intellectual traditions that span the centuries. In this unique and comprehensive introduction to the region's three major civilizations, Egypt, Greece, and Rome draws a fascinating picture of the deep links between the cultures across the Mediterranean and explores the ways in which these civilizations continue to be influential to this day.

Amazing book and very comprehensive. Only issue I had is I got lost when they were in certain chapters. They spoke of one empirical rule. That person passes away and talks about another. Two chapters later they bring another concept of the ruler that you heard died 2 hours ago.
