Publisher's Summary

Years have passed since the last of the Dark Gods was defeated, and Lothion has entered an age of peace and prosperity. Mordecai’s oldest children have already begun to make a place for themselves, and his youngest are on the cusp of adulthood. By every outward measure, his life has been a success; he has earned his reward.

However, Tyrion, the first wizard and brutal liberator of mankind, has returned with an agenda of his own, and dark things continue to stir at the edges of civilization, threatening to undo Mordecai’s accomplishments.

He must meet the expectations of his queen, his family, and his people, all while finding a way to protect them from the ancient enemy of the She’Har, but his greatest challenge may be dealing with the lingering darkness that is growing within his own heart.

True Magic!

I love the combination of Alex Wyndham as narrator and Michael G. Manning as writer, and have been a huge fan ever since the two teamed up on the Embers of Illenial series. I admit I cried during this book! I can't wait for the rest of the series. Thank you Alex and Michael for bringing magic to my life! I only wish the books were longer! Highly recommended!

Manning does it again

while this series isn't for everyone. I love this storyline , and the detail put into it. I will say this would be a hard book to understand without the proceeding series.

loved it so much

Just try and not enjoy this book. If you manage to do so then you must not be a fantasy fan.

More More More!!!

Dying to hear the next book. I'll never get sick of this series. the author has a wonderful way of bringing the charcaters to life. almost feels like their thoughts become your thoughts and it's easy to loose your self in these books

awesome

I honestly don't remember if I have ever had such an emotional reaction while reading an audiobook before, but hot dang I would be lying if I didn't say I had one during this book.

If an ANGEL made a baby with a SIREN...

If an ANGEL made a baby with a SIREN... it would sound like Alex Wyndham. With over 300 books in my audible collection, Michael G has created my favorites. This book is at the top and I even cried a little. I wish that Alex Wyndham could read the Mageborn series over and my world would be complete. I couldn't listen to the books read by Todd McLaren. I just couldn't take his voice seriously, so I read those myself. Bravo Michael G!! Keep em' coming baby!

Holy smokes. Alex Wyndham and Michael G Manning.

I haven't been this excited about a new series on audible for a while. And thank the gods it delivers and then some. Some of the best narration and fantasy writing on audible. Period.

Alex Wyndham. Incredible.

I can\t get over how much Alex Wyndham brings to this book. I listen to everything he narrates and the warmth and depth of his performance always blows me away. His characters, the way he draws you in - I lose hours. I love Michael's writing as well so this is match made in heaven. So emotional. So so good!!

Good story, but the audio is out of order.

I think the last half of the book is at the beginning and vice versa. I was thoroughly confused while listening to the book, but figured out that the book was out of order, at least the audio version. hopefully they figure it out and put it back together the correct way

This narrator and this writer are perfect!

Alex Wyndham's performance is so good and moving and Michael G Manning is so darn skilled at making your care about his characters and their lives. I full on cried a couple of times. Takes a little bit to get going and bring all the storylines and characters together and up to speed - but once it's all up and running it is vintage stuff. All I want is MORE!

great story

Much like the rest of the of the authors books, brilliant story and very captivating. narration has been pretty weak but good enough to not completely ruin the story.
