Publisher's Summary

His name is Hadjar Darkhan, and he still follows the call of his dragon heart.

The War Games ended a few months ago, and the various generals of Darnassus, led by the emperor, realized that just the disciples of the best martial arts schools and even the smaller, lesser schools wouldn't be able to strengthen the Darnassian Army enough to prepare it for what was coming. A war was on the horizon, and every weapon would matter, so losing even the most inexperienced warriors was an unthinkable prospect.

The Empire had never prepared for battle on such a massive scale before. They'd gathered tens of thousands of Spirit Knights and hundreds of thousands of Heaven Soldiers in just a short time. But would that be enough to combat the countless hordes of the enemy? Or were these just the death throes of a once vast Empire?

Hadjar, whether he wanted to or not, would be part of this upcoming war. Moreover, his role might end up being far more significant than he'd originally assumed.

Before a decisive battle begins, he must plunge into a maelstrom of war preparations, which doesn't bode well for him....

Best Book 2021

If you haven't realized already, this is easily one of the greatest books of this year and a series that will make you question the talent of other authors. If you are looking to be just entertained for a while, this series isn't for you.
If you are looking to dive in to a world as complex as our own and character progression the likes of which is rare, you have found your next obsession. No pointless deaths, unnecessary sex, two dimensional characters, and skip worthy chapters.
For a lot of people, especially the ones who project modern culture onto fictional worlds, this is a brutal and unforgiving story that seems to just want you to be upset.
However, if you can let go of your biases and modern sensibilities and simply let your mind and heart be embraced by a magnificent adventure you won't look back with regret but look forward with excitement for the next chapter.

love the series, but not my #1. still great though

Really enjoying this series. It continues to have a great story line, with unique support characters and an enjoyable path for the MC. I hope that Kevin Collins stays the narrator of this series as he's done such a great job so far. I do wish the opposition characters had a little more variety in the "I'm mad, let's fight" voices. The "lower your voice and yell" voice that's associated with everyone makes it tough in larger fights. It would nice to hear more variety. That said, I'm certain none of us can really understand how difficult narration is and I hope Collins continues to be the narrator of this and many other series.
** I admit I'm doing a copy/paste on this series. I didn't review them when I listened to them but felt these books deserved a review.

Epic

I have been able to put these books down. Klevanski really out did himself this time. The training flashbacks were amazing. My only complaint is the lack of detail continuation when Hijra was thrown into the pool with female disciples. Please keep the books coming; I’m hooked.

Book 9 is great.

I believe the negative reviews are by wannabes or over educated stiffs who correct people's grammar because they can. Only one issue with Audio version of book 9 and only saying this in case book 10 is similar... Please add a note like "Storm Mountain 6 months ago..." it was a lot of reminds to catch up on Hadjars location in time and space. Thanks for all the hours of great listening.

Could be a lot better

The story is beginning to feel like a filler for the author. Only last third of was off some relevance and it’s a shame as this was something that I look forward to
