Publisher's Summary

The future of the Ashaiian haven, the newly founded Kingdom of Cael, is anything but secured. Rezkin must seek recognition from the King of Gendishen if his people are to maintain possession of their island home and the enchanted secret it contains.

In an unexpected twist, events overtake Rezkin, and he is thrust into a frustrating adventure to seek a worthless prize. He finds that his carefully constructed reputation as an indomitable foe has consequences as others seek to use his strengths for their own gain. Meanwhile, friends are confronted with too many truths, power and strength might be more than some desire, loyalties and friendships are tested, and at least one of Rezkin’s friends might be headed for a miserable demise.

I still hate Frisha, other than that it's great.

Seriously Frisha is frankly awful, judgemental mean, fly's off the Handel and doesn't seem to appreciate the fact that Reskin has saved her, and others lives on multiple occasions. Has no compassion for the fact Res is emotionally stunted, her character expects purity of action from others but not from her self. Whilst being irrational most of the time and goes through little character development of her own skills and world view.

Other than that it's a pretty great book, various characters go on adventures and grow as people both in them selves and their responsibilies and actions. This book follows several characters not just Reskin as they spin off from main cast which for the most part is successful and allows the author to develop characters like Tam more fully and if he'd just been part of Reskins entourage.

Though I think the author does over rely a touch on conflict with others through characters not explaining things and being irrational and unable to relate due to the other person in the conversation. In some cases this makes sense for instance if Reskin threatens there position as king or they have a different belief system. But in other cases it's just conflict for its sake, aka Trisha.

The battles are great once again as are the discriptions of the build up to some magic actions, along with the consequences, some being equally heavy for some of the characters, helping to challenge them and allow them to develop.

This book delves further into the fantasy side of things too. So I hope everyone's good with that, still it's done in a natural way.

Over all 4.5 to 5 out of 5. Trisha really pissed me off Malcius suffers from the same thing too a degree but I'd say moves forward more during this book I get that there prissy nobles but I thought they'd of changed more by now, Tieran certainly has and continues to do so in this book. Other wise it would be pure 5 stars from me.

Utter Trash - 10/10

A book so awful it has a badly written Amazon review on the cover. A story so laughable it makes a 2 Star shonen look balanced/realistic.
With each new release the protagonist just gets more powerful with the most hilarious justifications as to why.
I hate every character and couldn't care who wins.
All wonderfully written and beautifully performed.
Seriously, its crazy. Every ridiculous reveal works, every absurd plot somehow makes sense. Even the cliche cuck thing that ALL fantasies have isn't as bad/creepy here.
You can just tell the author just loves his work. It's inspiring.
This series is my guilty pleasure and I hope it gets more attention.
Truly a fun and original tale.
I pick up every new release immediately and am constantly enthralled throughout. Cannot wait for the next one, great work to all involved!

Book 4 has been a huge step up on the story line and I am nervous as I get towards the end as it took so long for this one to come out and I want book 5 now!! The writing, flow of the story and willingness to take it forward along mANY THEMES AND IDEAS has moved this at such a fast pace, I might have to re-listen to books 1-3 again just to tie me over. GET WRITING Mr Kel Kade!!

PS I love Tam's storyline, fascinating...
