Like watching a blockbuster movie but in your ears

proper order of this short mini trilogy: Scions of Elysia, Renegades, then Martyrs. for some reason they are not part of a ordered list and I accidentally listened to the last one first. and it has one hell of a plot twist.

Great Performance. Leaves on a Cliffhanger

Really wish that the stories were able to be bought together. Cliffhangers, hard to like.

Decent but not great

The story was ok but the ending is so-so. It just kinda ends unsatisfactorily. The performance was good though.

Way too short

Voice acting was excellent, story a bit clichéd but entertaining. Very short though not sure if it is worth an entitle credit!
