Publisher's Summary

Adventure. Competition. A duel to the death.

While on a journey to the famous city of Thronehold, Volke Savan learns of the Sovereign Dragon Tournament. The massive celebration involves hundreds of arcanists competing for fame and glory, and Volke is determined to win. 

Dark forces dwell in the city, however, and rumors of the legendary world serpent spread amongst the shadows. Whoever bonds with a god-like mystical creature will gain magic beyond compare, and the queen’s guards suspect cutthroats will use the chaos of the tournament to hide their plotting. 

Unsure of who to trust, Volke investigates the terrible rumors while advancing in the ranks of the tournament. Unfortunately, the true villain may be closer than he realizes....

Loads of fun!

Great third book in the series!.

The story was interesting and the narration brought the story to life.

The author did a great job of creating a a vibrant world with a fascinating magic system.

If you liked the first two books, you will enjoy this one too.

I look forward to more from this author

Holy crap

Like the others I absolutely loved this story, it had me on the edge of my seat!
When I finished the book I had mixed emotions about how Volke handled things throughout the story.
It was a bit sad he felt the need to do everything alone, I was really hoping to see his relationship with Addi blossom.
Fingers crossed for book 4 to showcase that, regardless this story was unbelievable I might have to listen to this again while I wait for Plagued Arcanist to hit audible

Action, Schemes, and More Emotion

This latest volume in the series doesn't disappoint. We see our hero working through layers upon layers of plots and schemes. And while Luthere seems to take much more of a passive/back-seat role, we get more familiar with the emotions of major characters and what makes them tick. There's also some tugs on the heart strings. None of that, however, diminishes the the amount of battles and new powers being introduced. Definitely recommended. You will get much more out of the story if you are familiar volumes than if you start here, but I think it does enough help you catch on even if this is where you start.

Narration is on par with previous volumes and very well done. There is a good amount of energy and a nice range of voices for characters.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Every book gets better and better!

I have loved this series from book 1 knightmare arcanist and this one does not disappoint! Shami Stovall builds even more on the world, introducing more and more eldrin and arcanists. The fighting and final chapters had me on the edge of my seat. Brian Wiggins is fantastic as narrator! You can tell he has a passion for these books because as the books get better so does he! I wish audible would have released the audio version same day as the physical copy but since they did not, I bought a copy. Through the whole thing I heard Brian's voice in my head and could not wait to hear his work on this! Overall great read/listen! Highly recommend for all ages.

Love this Series!!!

Shami Stovall delivers yet another great installment of the Frith Chronicles. Volke and the Frith Guild are headed to Thronehold for the Sovereign Dragon Tournament and information on the legendary, god-like world serpent. Always finding himself in some seriously unique situations, Volke and the guild, once again, find themselves set against a background of mystery, intrigue, deceit, treachery, sacrifice, and loss. The introduction of new and unique mystical creatures, in addition to the exploration and demonstration of their ability was brilliantly done. This book delves deeper into the emotions and motivations of the characters, and with several truly emotional scenes, this book makes for an amazing addition to the series. Brian Wiggins has great energy and range and delivers the great narration you have grown accustomed too!
This book is both riveting and engaging, making it hard to stop listening to. If you liked the previous two books, you will love this one!
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
