Publisher's Summary

The Chronicles of William Wilde continues!

The raid on Sinskrill was a success, but the battle is only just beginning. William realizes the stakes at hand. He still has to find a way to prevent Lord Shet, the god of the mahavans, from returning to Earth from the faraway world of Seminal. If he doesn’t, Arylyn will be destroyed.

But strange visions plague his mind: an albino monster who infects William with anger. It is Sapient Dormant, the Overward of the necrosed and tasked by Shet to recover a long lost talisman of power. The Servitor of Sinskrill also advances his own plans. He’s learned Arylyn’s location and will do whatever he can to bring a crippling blow to the magi.

Serena struggles with her own path, torn between loyalty and love for William and a desire to see her family safe. Rukh and Jessira seek to provide balance to the magi. Only they have the skill and training to keep Arylyn safe, but their memories of their shared past life on Arisa remain fragmented, and their greatest allies, their Kesarins - Aia and Shon - are nowhere to be found.

And on Seminal, Lord Shet schemes, certain of his coming victory.

You know that they are coming!

Just not when or how many. And what unknown surprises await in the mists of the unknown.

It is difficult to mobilize a trained force when there has not been any need for a long time. Especially if the enemy is considered a fable.

But when events changed the Outlook and training and defenses are strengthened to prepare for the unimaginable, fear and denial still hamper the population from full participation.

When the enemy is spotted and body count increases of both sides, desperate measures compound the problems for everyone.

As the battles progress, so does the importance of the next book in the series. Choose wisely as you are surrounded by action and adventure that blends the future and the past. Strange words make it more real than a computer game. Strange creatures with unusual abilities and skills stir up bad dreams and real fears.

But growing friendships and mutual support helps our heroes out of tough situation and love makes the world go round.

Too harsh without any good reason

The story barely progressed and not until close to the end of the book. Also, it was way too harsh and bloody for this series! The death and destruction made no sense in context to what had been done in previous books. It was way too horrific.

Overall good but...

To get the most out of this book you really need to read/listen to the Castes and Outcastes series. I admit I was thoroughly entertained but the book bounced through many other characters and especially placed too much emphasis on Rook and Jezeera. And many loose strings with no answers...

Another fantastic story

Davis Ashura is an amazing author. With Nick Podehl this series is one of my new favorites. I will definitely be listening to it again in the future.

I really enjoy these books

Confession: I enjoy any performed book by this narrator.
This is a teenaged level book series involving the typical main hero and his eventual sidekicks. The author does a good job with character development and overall tells a slightly different story of mages versus mages who live on different islands and have contrasting philosophies. Nothing really blew me away by the story but nonetheless, I enjoyed it. It was well written and performed by one of the industry bests.
