Great book

Enjoyed the series so much that after a year I had to listen to it again. I hate incomplete endings that does nothing to satisfy. Not the case here. I felt whole and satisfied. Thanks

Stupid Never Dies

This book was a huge disappointment. Although I enjoyed the previous volumes in this series, "stupid never dies" applies to this final volume.

Surprisingly unfolds in complex fantasy

Overall a decent listen which gets better as the story progresses. Audible doesn’t outline the order of books in a series. This problem left me guessing. Unfortunately I selected this book as my first read only to find at the end it just comes near the end of the series so I am a bit disappointed. Also of note, well Todd McLaren does a fairly good job with the narration, I had to increase the speed slightly because the flow of his reading is slightly blunted.

Moving!

I have already read these books, and I am new to audible so I decided to listen to the books I have enjoyed. Listening to them again has moved me to want to read them again. I love this story in its entirety! I have celebrated the bonds of friendship, the uncomfortable feelings of unsure affections. I openly bawled at the sacrifice of life, for the ones you love. Great story from the beginning struggle for power, to the end of mastery, and the trials in between.

Enjoyed it a lot...

A good sl with humor. While I like the narrator's main voice, some of his others sound much the same & his female voices need some work. :-)

8 books later... goodbye Manning

After enjoying the first 3 books in "Scholar of Magic" I backtracked to "Mageborn". I see a pattern: Great start, Manning could have been my favourite author. But as the story goes on, the general view of world becomes dark and depressing. Manning spends massive time on describe the suffering and fighting, but very short time the “rewards” and enjoyable parts of life. Heroes must be unhappy and punished in the end. Seems rather predictable after reading the first books. So, what is the purpose of fighting for improving the world? According to Manning, non, as I interpret it. A good book should make me feel inspired, make me feel energized, make me feel good. I have now realized the books of Manning is not for me. So goodbye Manning, now I will try to find an author with more “balanced” stories.

Good story, unsympathetic protagonist

I enjoyed the over all premise of the story and it was well thought out and well written, but his main character across the whole series comes across as a sleazy voyeur who takes every opportunity to leer lecherously any time a bit of flesh is on show.
Also, the interactions between him and his spouse seem strangely odd. They seem to have a relationship built on anger and this just didn’t ring true to me. They seemed to fly off the handle at the drop of a hat. It seemed wholly dysfunctional.
All that being said, however, I did enjoy the story and even though the main character annoyed me, I did read the full series.

Amazing

So gripping throughout ALL of the books. Its sad to see the journey of Mordecai Illenial come to a close. I want to hear more! Perhaps we shall get a continuation eventually, of young Matthew Illenial in his later years...
