Publisher's Summary

One fateful mistake changed the course of Talar’s life. It cost him his mother, his sight, and his freedom. He swore never to return to Loden, but Shara changed that. Now he finds himself entangled in the very existence he fled from, hounded by the Nazarien, stalked by Erram, and trapped by the Lord of Loden.

More pressing is his struggle with his own demons. He can no longer control his power and no one seems able to help him...except perhaps the Stravad. Wanting to save his marriage and himself, he pleads with Shara to go with him to Temeron, but Erram is waiting.

Once he swore he would never become a pawn in his father’s history, but prophecies are not meant to be ignored. Talar knows he will eventually have to face what he fears most, but does he have the strength his father lacked or will the battle destroy him?

Continue the adventure with the fourth installment in the World of Samar series.

OMG!!!

OMG!!! I didn't think these could get any better!!! I LOVE the stories with Talar and Shara even more than the first 2 books if that's even possible!!! I can't wait for Book 5!!!! Thanks to the last 2 books (Books 3 and 4), I've completely neglected all the other books that I was going to listen to/read this last week and I have no interest in them because I've been so wrapped up in these books. The narration is everything!!!! It's like a movie playing out for you while you listen. I can't wait for the other books to be narrated. Please get this done quickly (me being greedy) so I can keep listening. LOL

The Spirit of Eldon

The epic story continues. In this detailed adventure, Tamar faces his demons. While we get closure on some aspects, it’s obvious that there’s so much ch more to come.

M. L. Hamilton continues to entertain me with her fantastic stories. Her details and descriptions draw me right in to the story.

Kelley Hazen delivers another great performance. She consistently brings out the personalities of each character as she gives each of them their own voice. I am never disappointed with any of her narrations.

The great journey continues...

The fourth book in the series continues with magic and adventure, but also compex and complicated fates of all our heroes and heroines...
It's Talar's time to become the focal point of the tale, and it's wonderul and heart-breaking at the same time to dwelve into his mind, his memories, his fears, his doubts and his hopes... He is a really complex character, and the events from his life and experiences he had that the other characters in the book do not know about make him so much more alienated to everyone around, even Shara, the one person he is so much afraid to lose...I like the way Ms Hamilton writes their love story: Shara's insecurity in him, his inability to share his pains with her, all the obstacles fate throws their way... The biggest one is the choice everone says Talar will finally have to make: will he choose love or destiny, knowing that whatever he chooses, he'll inadvertently lose something that is priceless to him...?

Every installment in the saga has a different feel to it, though the background story of Eldon's heritage continues throughout all of them. I like that "magical" side of the series, it's a great fantasy tale peopled with complex, sometimes confusing characters. But I like the human side of it much, much more - the way Ms Hamilton describes relationships, emotions, feelings that really are the force behind human behaviours is simply masterful. Love, devotion, hatred, jealousy, hurt, vengeance, compassion... it's all there, on the pages of the book. And that is what I think makes the stories so good:)

As for the interpretation of the book, I can only repeat what I already said many times before: Ms Hazen is a wonderful narrator who adds another layer to tales that she reads. She's a master of voicing individual characters, and even if - in those few rare cases that it happened - I didn't particularly like a voice she gave a character, you can't deny that she does a great job with every book she narrates. This one is no exception - it's another masterpiece from her:)

Great Read

The Spirit of Eldon (World of Samar #4) was another great read by M.L. Hamilton. Talar’s life was changed my one fateful mistake. He said that he would never return to Loden, but Shara has changed his mind on that. He finds himself hounded by the Nazarien, stalked by Erram, and trapped by the Lord of Loden. But worse than that he is struggling with his own demons. He can’t control his power and there is no one that is able to help him, except the Stravad. He wants to save himself and his marriage and asks Shara to go to Temeron with him. I really enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author. I love the life that Kelley Hazen brings to the characters.

An Awesome Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it to be my favourite of the series so far. Talar and Shara are pulled away from the life they wanted by fate once again. Talar needs to control his power so he travels with Shara and friends to Temeron to learn what he needs. Erram is waiting. The trip is more eventful then they had hoped, and the time in Temeron sets Talar off to face his fate. This series has something for everyone, suspense, drama, mystery, humour and a touch of romance. This combination of author and narrator creates pure enjoyment. Looking forward to next book.

Epic Fantasy, Exciting Adventure

Exciting, Action-Packed Epic Fantasy!

Talar is facing demons from his past, present, and future as he tries to control his ever-growing power. Feeling alone, Talar struggles not only with his power but the prophecy that will ultimately free him yet cost him dearly. The listeners are given a deep insight into Talar’s life; the choices he made as well as his deepest fear. This is a book that captures the attention and imagination of the listener while also satisfying some background wants.

M.L. Hamilton has once again written a fascinating book to the series. We as listeners are given a greater insight into the characters and their desires, and their past. This book furthers the story of Talar and the World of Samar. Hamilton picks up where the last book ended and keeps the World of Samar flowing smoothly. Her character development is strong; and the non-stop action is peppered with real-life situations (i.e., romance, fears, doubts, etc.).

The narrator, the delightful and talented Kelley Hazen once again gives an impressive and masterful performance. The depth and magnitude of the unique voices and accents is monumental. I could listen to Hazen for hours on end. She delivers a captivatingly intense narration where emotion and action are projected appropriately. In my humble opinion, this series is great but with Hazen’s talent, it is awesome!

Overall, this is a book (and series) that if one loves epic fantasy and adventure this is the series and book for you! I am eagerly awaiting the next in the series!

The Audiobook Reviewer’s Choice Award is a prestigious award presented to the author of the book whose story is believed to deserve higher than the standard 5 Star Rating. This is one of those rare books!

There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.
