Publisher's Summary

Matthew is the first human wizard to possess the true heritage of the Illeniels, a secret gift no one fully understands. Alone, he travels to another world, seeking the source of their mysterious enemies. There he will discover the origin of their ancient foe, the mysteries of the past, and possibly the future of humankind.

If he can survive long enough.

In a land beyond death and suffering, he finds the true source of evil, within the heart of humanity, and their newest creation. In the search for knowledge, some doors, once opened, can never be closed.

The Lone Hero

Books about heroes can be fun. But this one takes it too the extreme. In history, Sun Tzu was a super warrior, yet his warfare was based around the strategic use of armies. Matt instead bases his final preparation of invading earth around doing it all himself. The author compounds this by having him ignore obvious problems. Finally, he continues the modern trend of having the hero commit to what he recognizes as a wrong course of action and succeeding in spite of that. In real life, negative choices tend to be much more destructive especially in light of the enemy Matt was facing. According to the enemy’s lack of constraints, Matt should be dead and all of Great Britain a nuclear barren waste.

3rd book was a disappointment

enjoyed books 1 and 2 extremely but book 3 took such a twist it was like a different person wrote it. very disappointing. this turned into more of a scifi book and not a fantasy book.

Interdimensional nonsense

This series generally well-written and for young-adults. The parents are all powerful but unable to do anything and the children must accomplish everything over their parents protestation --- standard YA stuff. Michael Manning does a great job of showing how people feel when events happen to them, especially negative ones. I enjoyed the previous novels and was expecting another great story here. Unfortunately, this novel feels so disconnected from the others that it's like the start of a new series. The tie in to the history of the series is a huge letdown: The antagonist in the past who chased the She'Har thousands of years ago is a recently developed artificial intelligence made by humans in an alternate reality. Now that the future is here the past is ready to begin. Beam me up, Scotty.

Why ruin the fantasy?

I was so hyped to listen to this book, but I find myself waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting some more for the plot to develop in any meaningful way. Bringing this story to, what is essentially, a futuristic version of our world was such an odd choice. So much time spent explaining mundane things.
I was really hoping to see some more magic, genius enchantments and dragons and so far have been pretty let down.

Hate that the series has ended.

T he competition of Demonhome just left me wanting for more. I hope the author has some thoughts of writing some follow ups. Will miss the characters.

Good albiet a little confusing at first

Good story great narrator, just a bunch of names and terms are pronounced differently than in mageborn and the Embers of illenial serries. The pronunciation of Tyrion was easy sir Kihan, or Xihan, maybe Zihan. I didn't know who he was for a long bit. Truth be told seeing the spelling would have made this easier for me because I don't know who's right.

Over all my least favorite book of M.G.Manning

As all the other books in this series were based on more medieval theme this one ventures to a distant hi-tech future. As always with Manning the story is not bad , but it didn't really feel as part of the Mageborn Universe. If you are reading through the entire series of books i would not skip this as it still has some important pieces of story, but also make sure you don't start with this book either, as it will not give you a real feel for the series.

Disappointing

An exploration of modern times vs the remote past from both points of view, tedious and an enormous anti-climax from book 2 from which it's almost completely disconnected.

It was okay...

I thought the book was okay, but with so many in my wish list I was left feeling that maybe I should have listened to something else. If you really need something to listen to, give it a go.

Great series!

A mate got me into the Michael g Manning mage books and it’s been a pretty good ride but as always, I can’t get my head around the annoying way the narrator attempts to do women voices.
Surely they could hire a female narrator to read the voices of the female characters!?
Other than that, I’m keen to follow Manning’s further works.

brilliant

I couldn't stop listening...it had me gripped from the very first sentence...fingers crossed for a fourth book to tie up a lot of loose ends though
