Publisher's Summary

Sequel to The Consumption of Magic

Nearly a year ago, blinded by grief and betrayal, Sam of Wilds made a desperate decision to follow the Great White into the Dark Woods. Now, he emerges to a world changed.

The City of Lockes is a prison. The King has been locked away in the dungeons. The Kingdom of Verania has fallen, and the Dark wizard Myrin sits on the throne.

But soon after his return, Sam learns of a resistance fighting in his name, led by a courageous knight, a defiant prince, a pissed-off unicorn, and a half-giant who wants to smash everything in sight. If he has any hope of defeating the villains who have taken their home, Sam must face the consequences of his choices - and the friends he left behind.

One of the best series ever. Seriously.

This is one of the best series I have ever read, and certainly one of the best narrations I have ever heard. The books are clever and funny, and from the start of The Lightning Struck Heart, I was immediately invested in the characters and their stories. The books are also tragic and heart wrenching and every other thing a story needs to be satisfying. Michael Lesley is an incredible narrator who truly gives each of the characters a unique voice.

When dreams come true

This is the final chapter in Sam's voice. If you don't know who Sam is you have to start at the beginning.
1. The Lightening Struck Heart
2. Destiny of Dragons
3.Consumption of Magic
4 . Wish Upon the Stars
Tj writing is brilliant and Michael's narration is excellent and adds layers of enjoyment to the story. I highly recommend this audio book series

It's over!!! So sad, was a great book, narration was amazing like always..
This book gives me a feeling of loss, knowing it was the last, as this series was absolutely amazing and do not wish it to be over.

Michael Leslie is a Storytelling Master

This is an outstanding book (and series). Michael Leslie's incredible talent is the perfect pairing for TJ Klune's Tales of Verania series. He gave me goosebumps. Literally. Made me laugh, and sob. The villian's voice is bone chilling, yet seductive. Amazing.

Amazing!!

I loved this story but I would expect anything less from TJ Klune. He spins a great tale that keeps you engaged all the way through. But then to hear the story!! Michael Lesley does an amazing job with soooo many voices, sounds and yes even a song. The voices are so distinct you know who is talking. The emotions are felt. This is just an amazing performance and a definite recommend to all.

Amazing!

Sigh! it was perfect. Best friends 5eva!

Michael Lesley did an amazing job narrating this series. I don't know if I would have loved as much as I did if it wasn't for him.

This is the last book in the series & I am saddened that it is over. But it did end perfectly. We pick up with Sam coming back after being gone almost a year and everyone is rather upset with him as he left with just leaving a note behind. He is back w/all the dragons. Verania has fallen, the king is the dungeon and Morgan is gone. We have the fight to retake Verania and overthrow Myrin. Along the way there are more shenanigans, the bad guys monologuing, a unicorn and his horn reunited, some surprises that I didn't see coming and the good guys saving the day. I love them all & will miss each and every one of them. I would love seeing Justin find his one and only as he so needs one. This series will be one that I go back to frequently.

Definite FAVORITE! A++

This final book did not disappoint. Everything about this series is just so excellently done.

I read the other three books in the series via audiobook, but for this final book, I couldn't listen to it fast enough so switched between the audio and print book.

I have loved this series, but this final book was perfection. So, so, so good. TJ Klune is just one of the best story-tellers around and he's found the perfect narrator in Michael Lesley for this series. The characters are everything and the two partner to bring them to glorious life.

I've LOVED this series and highly, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it. But you have to read all four books. This is NOT a book that will stand on it's own.

Read the series...it's ridiculous and funny and is beyond anything I've ever read. But at the same time, it's heartfelt, sweet, and so romantic. Ryan and Sam...gah, I cannot love them anymore. In fact, there are so many characters in these books that I simply want to know in real life. I laughed out loud so many times and sobbed out loud a couple times, too. This series is just everything.

And I highly recommend it on audio. Michael Lesley is KING OF NARRATORS!!

Listened to it twice already and still loving this book!

When the lightening struck heart was first published I thought it was a whimsical funny story, light hearted and happy. And then came A Destiny of Dragons, then The Comsumption of Magic and now this the ending for Sam and his merry band of men... well for now. I have loved all these books in the series and this conclusion is just perfect. I think both the writing and narration are such a beautiful medley which diffo gives me heart banners.

Awesome isn't A strong enough word for this book. The narrator blew it out of the ball park and TJ had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. What an ending to a fabulous series
