Publisher's Summary

The brand new trilogy in the Echoes saga begins here!

Thirty years after the Echoes of Fate changed the course of history, an ancient evil stirs once more.

Millennia in the dark has left these lost and forgotten monsters hungry for war, and the people of Illian can do nothing but rely on their peacekeepers, the Dragorn. But are the dragon riders ready for what has been buried under their feet? 

Gideon Thorn, Master of the Dragorn, can feel the Third Age coming to an ominous end. Together with Inara Galfrey and her dragon, they must investigate the return of these forgotten monsters.

Alijah Galfrey, Inara’s twin brother, has only one talent - getting into trouble. When he isn’t drinking, the half-elf is gambling his life away in the pursuit of relics no one cares about. Now, he finds himself at the sharp end of history. Can he take charge of his own destiny, or will he always be controlled by others?

Deep in the mines of Vengora, something ancient has been found, and the dwarves of Dhenaheim would go to war with the North over it. After 60 years in the world of men, Doran Heavybelly must finally return to his homeland if any peace is to be found.

When gods go to war, mortals pay the price.

Philip C Quaintrell did it again!

Like all his books, this is a great listen! Story is well written with with familiar characters, and some new ones . This is an excellent start to a new storyline. Steven Brand’s narrating is perfect! This is the only way to follow the Echoes of Fate series!

Great adventure and I can't wait for the next!

What a great story. The characters were interesting and even the dragons have their own personality. I really appreciate it that the author wrote about the female characters in a strong way and not resorted to needless abuse as some other books do. This story has it all: Dwarves, elves, humans, orcs, dragons, mages, and more! Highly recommend!

A master of story telling

This book was a great adventure. The characters seem so real and the story moves wonderfully fast. Yet not at the expense of building up the characters to the point where they seem like real people.

A wonderful job and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.!

vanilla fantasy

a basic story about humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, evil necromancers, and friendly dragons. the performance is dull and the story isn't very original, but it's good if you're in the mood for something plain. I may give the next in the series a chance.

First book I have given up on in awhile.

The story was terrible, failing to even come close to suspending my disbelief, or invest me in a single character.

I can't wait for book two. I enjoyed the first series, and this one delivered as well. Steven Brand narration is perfect.

Endless Droning - Droning - The Droning is Endless

Wow. I really tried to like this. But the narration by Steven Brand is beyond bad. It's almost indescribable just how monotonous, mentally flaccid, and dreary the narration is. Never wavering, never changing, just endless droning, on and on and on into the night. I listened to nearly the whole thing and then realized I had no idea what was going on. All I remember is endless droning, incomprehensible word salad, and dark auditory sadness.

Tale of Sorrow

It would be nice if the narrator had a voice for each character... maybe not every character, but I would expect some differentiation. As it was, I could not tell who was talking without the verbalization of a name.

As bleak and disenchanting as this novel was, I doubt I will be buying another.
