Publisher's Summary

Forced to ally, the world has gathered against the endless night. Numbering over a million souls, they are the survivors of nations. They have armed themselves with weapons and magic, and defend the strongest fortress every built. Led by a supreme strategic mind, the races have organized into battalions, designed unique tactics, and fortified their position beyond any conceivable need. But now their foe is at their gates, and to a man they cling to the same hope, to survive until Elseerian can defeat the source. The best they can last is Seven Days....

This is the BEST of the 3

Ben Hale did it again and even better with his 3rd book in The Chronicles of Lumineia. In this 3rd story about Lumineia and the The Second Draeken War, I have gotten to know some of the main Characters better like, Taryn, Liriana(Liri), Trin, Maemi(Mae)and Brayen, Jack & Ciara. I also get to meet some new ones and truly respect their willingness for sacrifice in order to save the RACE from becoming extinct. My favorites were Jack, Terran, & Leary. But each Character plays such an important part in helping. I Love all of the different races Ben has included in this story from the Dwarfs, Druids, Amazons, Dark Elves, and Giants. There is soooo much to take in with this story that I will want to listen to it again soon to just be able to sink it all in completely! This story brought out many emotions from happy, fear and sadness, but in the end I was THRILLED that I took the time to buy it from Audible.com because it was WELL worth my time!!!

A riveting conclusion to the trilogy

The third installment does not disappoint. With non-stop action you fight alongside your heroes in this seven day race for survival. I loved every moment.

Finally got through book three

Any additional comments?

On the positive side, the story idea turned out to be really good in books two and three. Some reviewers have described the series as epic, and it would have been possible to create memorable epic fantasy out of such a good story idea. The volumes would have had to be much longer, however, to enable the building up of a believable mythology and culture of the fictional world and bring the main characters to life. Ben Hale tells the story in more of a comic book style: lots of action but no character development. <br/><br/>Modernisms that I found jarring in book one continued in books two and three. Children are "kids", the expression "guy" is used a few times (as in " Sounds like a good guy to have around", and the heroes sit around eating sandwiches. <br/><br/>It seemed like the main characters spend most of their time (when they're not fighting) smirking, grinning and chuckling. It was very hard to take any of the doomsday story seriously with all the jollity going on. <br/><br/>Judging from this series, Ben Hale has a great imagination, so I hope that his characterization and writing style evolve as time goes on.
