    Description

    Every kingdom Rezkin touches has shattered, and the turbulence in his homeland is spreading across the Souelian.

    From the shards of kingdoms past, he begins to forge a new empire. But there is a price to pay for power, and the balance has come due.

    When Rezkin is confronted by something mysterious and ancient, he is stolen from his intended path and driven toward shocking revelations about his identity. With every whisper of knowledge comes new dangers and one certainty.

    Rezkin’s past has finally caught up with him, and the mad king Caydean is playing a darker game than anyone realized.

    Its really good, however;

    This book is really good! Their are answers provided for many things. And many threads are tied off, such as situations as the ending of the previous book, Tam and even Rezkin's abilities. Both the lore and character development is progressed across all fronts positively.

    The issues that seem to pop up are similar to the last book's problem. One being, some events and in particular the ending, seemed to be rushed. This isn't always a problem but when you compound it with where the book ended, it leaves many characters status ambiguous to each other. Many people like to say it's cliffhangers in general that are unlikable, but that is not really true. Most multi-part series end in cliffhangers (save the final entry). The reason I did not personally like this book's ending was the same reason I didn't like previous entries ending. In fact, they are very similar in that regard; the status of the MC is ambiguous to every other character in the main cast and one of the cast's fate is truly ambiguous. Where as comparatively the first three entries in the series also ended in minor cliffhangers. The difference is that the main characters status was NOT ambiguous to each other. It was only the story's direction, as the group had similar and different tribulations but their statuses were known within the group to each other when the story concluded.

    These last two entries just pause in ambiguity for nothing more than fake suspense but good books don't need that. The first three didn't. It's frustrating, but peoples, whether fiction or not, lives don't pause even though their situations might. That's why the first three books left a positive satisfactory note comparatively to the last two books. In the early books, the group's future fate was unknown but their status to each other wasn't paused. When the author decides to end a book like this, it almost feels like the book ended mid-arc. The arc wasn't truly finished until the aftermath is settled, not during the after action report. Their is no closure. The concern also stems with; will the wait for the next entry be just as long for similar results?

    Again, the book was really good. I enjoyed it! I especially loved the new and different characters. I feel that the world is large and interesting enough with the main character also amazing enough to continue even after the originally series wraps up. The book was still very entertaining and I love the characters (not Frisha haha) and the world. 4.3 Stars!

    That being said, people dislike the ambiguous cliffhangers. Especially with the current fad of short quick media summarization styles and eastern influences like manga/light novels where stories are separated by arc's with starts and conclusions within each arc. It's why people love the first 3 books or Tolkien or the Harry Potter books, a complete arc within each book even with overall story cliffhangers at the end. Even the title of this book introduced a powerful subject matter that never actually fully concludes but just segues into future possibilities, leaving some frustration.

    Ridiculous ending.

    Why would the author think this is a good way to end a book. No way I read the next book. I can’t believe I used a credit on this. The author literally wrote this book to ruin everything that was good from the previous books. It was a well written travesty. Too many people have been inspired by the George R. R. Martin style. Not every nook needs to end terribly. Don’t you think there is enough negativity in real life. We read these books to escape the hopelessness of real life and enter a world where the good guys actually win. If I wanted to experience the bad guys winning, and good men being corrupted, I’d read the newspaper.

    A good, not final, book in the series.

    A lot of reviewers so far seem upset with the ending as if this is the last book; it isn't and to think otherwise is absurd. The plot moved on, characters developed, some questions were resolved, and as so many others are upset about it left off with cliffhangers.

    I look forward to the next, and possibly last book in the series to come.

    Don't waste your money. it's going to take four mo

    The best part about this book. it's Nick hodell but for a 4-year wait long years of them writing other books that are only half-ass and then it's just too long and this book seems just a drag times. The first two were just so good. I don't know what happened

    VERY DISAPPOINTING

    SPOILER ALERT:

    Let me start by saying I absolutely love the first three books. I thought they were exciting and incredibly engaging. However, I am hugely diappointed in this book. My diappointment is for a couple reasons:

    1. Starting in the fourth book the story started to get more and more fantastical. As in they kept adding more and more different fantasy elements that had previously no place in the book. Previously they had introducing that Elves used to exist. That is fine, a little weird since it had never been discussed nor been relevant before, but it wasn't playing a big role in the story. But starting in the fourth they kept adding elements that kept detracting from the story, and in the fifth they just went crazy. In the first three books it was essentially a much better version of the Night Angle trilogy by Brent Weeks, it had a lot more elements and was better in every way. However, that was the story the author set us down. Now by the end of the fifth we have: demons, living elves and the MC is one now for some reason, Wes is a demon for some reason, dwarfs were mentioned as were giants, there are apparently thousands of anamorphs everywhere that no one seemed to know about, oh yeah and dthere are fay, ferries, elemental spririts, necromancers, gods, dragons and probably a few more things I can't remember. It is getting absloutely ridiculous. And the worst part is, is that they are not even adding to the story, they are all distractions. The basic need of needing to over throw the king still exists, but they just keep adding a bunch of elements to try and make the story feel bigger, but all it does is make it really boring because the story is never moving along.

    2. In the same vein as my previous comment, even the parts of the story that are not too fantastical are just rambling. The 4th and the fifth are just going from one event to another with very little development or dialogue. There are just things happening and none of them seem to be a big deal becasue there are too many things that are a big deal. The story keeps mentioning that the MC is struggling but then he just waltzs through life and everything goes his way. Even the things that don't turn out to be part of some master plan and it all works out better. Like Tam suddenly becoming amazing at everything and needing no time at all to recover from his slavery, also he is now a sword master because apparently....... well they never gave a good reason. Bottom line there is far too many 'big' events like taking over kingdoms and meeting unnecessary mythical creatures that we are spending no time on real character development. The first three books were all about relationships and growth and strategy and the MC learning. Now he just is learning because they are trying to add more fantastical events that don't really mean anthing to the bottom line.

    3. Basically, I am just sad that a series I really loved has gone so far off the rails. I am not saying that the elements they are adding aren't fun, but they are a far cry from the story we all love. It just was a huge diappointment. I wish the author could just erase the last two books and start again.

    Here's to hoping that there is a serious course adjustment, where we get back to hearing a story and not just a series of events that move you at all.

    I’m done

    There was some interesting stuff in here
    But it been two or three years since the author of written a book in the series and to be honest for me the momentum ended in the last book

    It wasn’t bad I think I just lost interest in the story

    did not feel like it was apart of KDT

    For me this book felt rushed. I read the reviews for her other series and so many were asking when she would continue these books.
    This book did not have the same feel of the other KDT books. Overall I am unimpressed.

    As long as this doesn't end the series it's decent

    The characters are a little predictable. it's not a bad thing, I don't mind being able to guess where we're heading.

    Some of the dialog is repetitive at times.

    Tam and Wesons Arc is well considered.

    Rez I'm 50/50 on if there's a final book that ties up the relationship between all characters I'll be satisfied. If this was the end of the series I am not.

    Nick was great as always.

    I'm not sold on the ending though it made this book feel like the middle book of a 3 book series and it's not.

    Here's hoping for an exciting conclusion and more in the series.

    Still love the story keep at it Kel.

    Dragons and Demons


    This audiobook is truly one of the best, I have listened to so far!
    Let me tell you why:

    1. The author finds a good balance between progressing the story and backing up her narrative law with new facts.

    2. It is a good foundation for the coming books, events are taking an unexpected turn.

    3. Last but not least, I am just excited for the dark Eragon vibes.🐉
    Can’t wait for the next books!
