Publisher's Summary

Tension is high at the Royal Institute of Magic, as the directors of each of the departments - Spellswords, Wardens, Traders, Scholars and Diplomats - work together with their allies to push back the dark elf invasion, led by King Suktar.

But Ben Greenwood knows the truth: the only real way they are going to win is if he and the Guardians do the unthinkable and infiltrate the heart of the dark elf homeland - ending the evil king’s rule once and for all.

As if that wasn’t enough, a new power has come into play. Queen Elizabeth was aware of it all those years ago, and she predicted it would continue to influence their mission to the bitter end: the High Council.

Can the Guardians harness the strange magic of the armour? And will it really be enough to bring down such a powerful wizard as the dark elf king? In a race against time, and with his friends beside him, Ben Greenwood must face his greatest challenge yet.

The High Council is the sixth and final book in the Royal Institute of Magic series.

Satisfying conclusion

I have so enjoyed this series and this final book is no exception. Just when you think “oh surely this is the end”, Victor takes another unexpected turn and there’s more story to love. Peter does a masterful job of bringing the whole cast of characters to life. My only real regret is that this is Victor’s final book. I would have loved to hear more from him.

Worth It!!!!!

I downloaded the first book on a whim and found myself falling down a rabbit hole of magic and friendship. While this epic fantasy novel is geared toward teens, the story is intricate enough that it could satisfy any adult looking for a coming of age story of adventure and friendship. This is worth the read especially for fans of role playing games and urban fantasy!

I thought it was a great series!

Take it for what it is. It's not Othello or War and Peace. But what fun are those? This book is fun, magical, whimsical at times and comes with characters who struggle with their own weaknesses while learning how to rely on and support each other. This in turn makes them stronger as individuals and teaches them valuable lessons about life, death and even mercy. I was sorry to see it end with the last book, but I will keep the memories of an excellent series of books, a great author and very talented narrator!

A Well Crafted Finale to a Smashing Series

Surprises through and through. Not to be missed by fans of the series. Finally the guardians have managed to unite but there’s more to be done as Charlie and Natalie develop a plan. . .

A satisfying conclusion!

I wish there were more books in this series, but at least the end was a good one. It left things open for another series and yet the end stands alone if there won't be any more.

Great narrator

I wanted to listen to a few books I knew but the narrator voice did not suit me. Instead I searched audible best narrators then searched books by that narrator. This book was also in my included so nothing to lose. The books were great, very well read and my husband and have now listened to them all. What a great find.

Absolutely Amazing!!!. Victor Kloss fabulously written. I loved every book. Peter Kenny is fabulous. I loved all the character voices and accents. I couldn't get into the beginning of book 1, then I adjusted the speed to 0.90× for every book and it was perfect to relax to. Thank you Audible for introducing another 5+star book.

What a series!

I listened al six of the books in the series and found them absolutely brilliant. Once started, I could not stop listening until the series was finished. Excellent ending, leaving the author to continue with the characters in other adventures and I sincerely hope he does. This series is similar to Ben Hale's The Chronicles of Lumineir. also a series to listen to.

Conclusion to an amazing story!

We loved it!! The 6th book of the Royal Institute of Magic series. Fantastic story telling, the characters are well rounded and the world they live in is completely immersive. Listen to the other 5 books first then listen to this incredible finale. You won't be disappointed!!

Good Effort

Well performed by Peter Kenny. A good effort to bring the series to a close after the death of Victor Kloss.
