Publisher's Summary

Every spring, the aristocratic magical families of Victorian England gather secretly at Merlin Hall to hobnob and to hold the annual Fey Parliament. While the adults of Magic-kind - from wizards to wood elves, fauns to fairies, giants to djinnis, and their human counterparts - debate matters of importance, the gifted youths must undergo the dreaded Assessments, testing their supernatural abilities.

For rascally Jake Everton, the boy Earl of Griffon, the pressure's on! Hungry to qualify for the elite Lightrider program that guarantees a life of adventure, Jake must prove himself to the Elders as a worthy future hero-in-training. But when a mysterious junior witch arrives at Merlin Hall with secrets in her eyes and danger at her heels, Jake and his friends must unite to defeat the dark forces that have invaded the Gathering and have sworn the frightfully-talented girl's destruction.

Join Jake and Dani, Archie and Isabelle on an epic journey into a world of enchantment, making marvelous new friends... and terrible new enemies.

    "Rise of the best book so far!"

    i will amid this: E.G. Foley is officially my favorite author right now. Rise of Allies: The Gryphon Chronicles, Book 4 proves that in so many ways. 1: I was so happy to read this. 2: I read it 3 times already 3: I always find it so hard to writhe about the books from E.G. Foley because i love is so much. And 4: I love the next book more then the last all the time, and if i could i would give this book 6 out of 5. I am so happy about this book, and you should read this too.

    What can i say about Jamie du Pont MacKenzie that i not said before? I love his voice, i love his performance and i love that he loves what he is reading. A more perfect narrater you cant find, and why look when you have it here? Jamie du Pont MacKenzie i love you!

    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "My favorite one yet!"

    Narration - Jamie du Pont MacKenzie, Wonderful as usual.

    I think this may be my favorite of this series.
    The gang has to go through their magical assessments, meet the queen, deal with their own insecurities and jealousies as they witness the skills of their peers and we learn more about life for and requirements of light riders and guardians.

    Two more talented youngsters join Jake and company for a magical and dangerous adventure as they travel through paintings, deal with a part troll boy, a dangerous vampire, some stinky little mischief makers and we get to spend more time with an old eight legged friend.

    Such a great series, geared towards kids but is also terrifically fun for adults!

    Love it!

    "still hooked"

    My boys and I simply love this series. After the first few books, I thought I might get bored or the novels might become too predictable. However, the introducing of new characters and depth in this one have proved me wrong. I'm more hooked now than I was when we started.

    "Great series for kids and adults!"

    I am always looking for a good series that I can listen to with my kids. They love listening to books while they do chores or on long car rides. This series is perfect! Exciting and engaging enough for the kids, but with full characters so that the grown ups don't get bored listening, either. Fantastic adventures! I can't wait for the next Jake book!

    "Another excellent installment"
    If you could sum up Rise of Allies in three words, what would they be?

    Great fantasy adventure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake has been my favourite character from the word go. He has his flaws, but he's a good person.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Watching Jake do his magical assessment


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Jake's parting from his mentor


    Any additional comments?

    I waited a long time for this book and it was well worth it. As always, both the authors and the narrator did a great job. Some new characters were introduced into this book who I found very interesting. This is a great series for children and adults alike.
