Publisher's Summary

The unforgettable conclusion to the epic fantasy Elements of Five series from New York Times best-selling author Carrie Ann Ryan.

The end of the centuries-long war is almost here, and the fate of the realm rests on one girl’s shoulders. The Gray has gathered his forces - and has Lyric in his clutches. The enemy’s plan to control the kingdoms has been revealed, but traitors from both sides might alter the course of fate. 

Lyric must return to Easton and the others before all is lost. Battle lines must be forged, and surprising alliances cast. The prophecy has never altered, and life comes at an ultimate price. Not all who fight will survive, but in the end, it will come down to the choice of a Priestess and her soul.

Male narration muffled

Holter Graham (the male narrator) sounds as if he ate the microphone that he recorded this on, in 1990. I've tried for several hours off and on today to just push through Easton's chapters and I couldn't even get through his 2nd chapter it was irritating so bad. Then he tries to do this performance growling the words and it makes it worse. I honestly don't remember it being this bad with the previous book. This sucks because I can tell it's going to be a good book but damn the audio sucks!


EDIT: I ended up returning the audible book but reading the book on kindle and the story is so so good!

Great Story

I don't usually listen to YA but I'm glad I gave this series a try. The characters are very well developed as is the world in which they live. The world-building is fantastic and I was able to envision the scenes as they were being described. The story kept me interested but Bailey's voice and narration kept me invested. It's a great storyline and I would definitely recommend it for those that love PNR or Sci-Fi.

Fantastic finish

I have loved this story from the beginning and was sad that it had to come to an end. These characters have grown on me and I am hopeful that we will get to revisit them. Lyric finally finds her place and the final showdown is here. Her, Easton and their friends will risk everything including their lives to save the realm and those that live in it. Lots of action and emotion in this story. I loved the narrators as well. Dive into this world in book one and you won’t regret it !

Couldn't stop listening

This is the first YA series I have ever tried. I found myself so invested in these characters. I loved Lyric and Easton and all the other characters. It was such a wild ride and I enjoyed all of it. When you dig into this series start with book one. This is one of those that need to be consumed in order of the way it was written. After you start, you won't be able to stop.

Epic!

The description of this book was on the spot:epic! The end of a very exciting series. There was so much drama, romances, and action, a century old war... This book wraps everything up beautifully. I enjoyed From Shadow and Silence so much! The narrators were awesome too. Thank you Ms Carrie Ann for another great series.

Amazing ending to a great series!

From Shadow and Silence by Carrie Ann Ryan is the fourth and final book in the Elements of Five series and it was full of surprises and had me captivated from start to finish. Narrated by Bailey Carr and Holter Graham, they brought the world of Elements of Five to life. All books do need to be read in order and it is so worth it. With new allies and enemies, our heroes are fighting for what they believe and stand for. I do not want to give to much away, but his was an enthralling paranormal story with a great story and characters. I could imagine this world and what our characters were facing while listening. This was a great ending to an amazing series and one I highly recommend.

Happy listening!

Gutted it’s over

Book 4 in Element of fire by Carrie Ann Ryan
Lyric has been through a lot many battles and lost many friends family.
Lyric and Easten are finally a couple but still have major struggles especially with The Grey trying to destroy and kill everyone.
Absolutely loved this book and even made me cry.
Gutted that this is the last book in series but the conclusion was done so well.
Absolutely loved the audiobook especially Bailey Carr but I won’t lie Holter Graham isn’t a favourite of mine but still loved the book.

Wow

What an epic conclusion to a series that I have loved and adored. This is one series where it is best to listen to them all in order as it gives such a strong connection to the characters and the world that Carrie Ann Ryan has developed.

Can’t wait for more from Carrie Ann Ryan as her writing is spectacular, there is intrigue, unique storyline’s and characters that I connect to and wish were real.
