Description

The future of the Ashaiian haven, the newly founded Kingdom of Cael, is anything but secured. Rezkin must seek recognition from the King of Gendishen if his people are to maintain possession of their island home and the enchanted secret it contains.

In an unexpected twist, events overtake Rezkin, and he is thrust into a frustrating adventure to seek a worthless prize. He finds that his carefully constructed reputation as an indomitable foe has consequences as others seek to use his strengths for their own gain. Meanwhile, friends are confronted with too many truths, power and strength might be more than some desire, loyalties and friendships are tested, and at least one of Rezkin’s friends might be headed for a miserable demise.

Better than book 3. Not as good as 1 and 2

Pros:
- New interesting societies. Kel has a talent here!
- Main annoyances of book 3 are not continued here
- New challenges and Kel continues to find cool out of the box thinking to overcome them

Cons:
- Disappointed on how much time is spent on the few whiny characters whining with little personal development
- Little time spent on the relationships I hoped to read more about, while the new relationships were not that enjoyable

For me, I hope that book 5 completes the story. I want to find out what happens and read more about Rezkin, but I'm starting to not care about most of the other characters. Books 1 and 2 were flawless so it'll suck to stop mid-series.

Going down hill

This book takes the series from a good dark fantasy series to a bad teen romance. I don't think I will continue the series after this book.
on the plus side Nick Podehl did an excellent job narrating as usual, using different accents to highlight when different languages are spoken.

I struggled through it I was completely disappoint

I struggled through it I was completely disappointed by the book book 4 was really looking forward to this and as I said completely disappointed and I will probably be asking a refund on the entire series has the end ruined the whole thing.

not my favorite - cliffhanger and disjoint

narrator did a good job, especially with accents to indicate language shift. story was meh. disjoint, letting you forget the overarching narrative, and the author seems to enjoy disappointing narrative expectations instead of offering pleasant surprises.

When does the whiny stop

I loved the first two books but I just can't handle the whiny characters. How long does it take for someone to trust another character or just leave. It seems like the same thing over and over, oh you kill people, I can't trust you.

I am a couple hours in and I think I am going to return it, I can't take it anymore.

For love of god, stop whining already

The series was a price winning racehorse, which was maimed by this book.

In my not-so-humble opinion the story has grown stagnant and the characters can do little more than be whiny, distrustful and infuriatingly burdensome thorns in Rezkin's confused buttocks.
They can't do a single thing right, follow a single order, or do anything remotely useful. The only exception was Rezkin's pet mage.
Even Rezkin has been watered down, been elevated to the rank of glorified babysitter, and is currently slowly turning into a emotional rollercoaster.

Simply put, this book was one of my biggest disappointments this year.

Unsatisfied

The world building is fantastic however, the first two books were better when there were no spirits or demons. Looking forward to the completion of the series simply so I can be done with it. Returning all the books.

What was the author thinking?

I was hesitant to get this book because of the bad reviews. The first two were amazing books with a lot of potential but the author no longer cares about this series and it shows in the lazy writing. He forces two characters that had no chemistry to fall for each other. Gets rid of the main characters female intrigue for no reason and doesn’t allow them to have a proper discussion as soon as they added the Faye this series has gone downhill and I’m going to ask for a refund. I genuinely feel like I’ve been robbed of time.

Such s Shame

Clearly Kade had originally planned a trilogy but the first two were very popular and either through greed or reluctance to let his literary baby go, he decided to tack extra stuff on. He could have written a brilliant trilogy. He'll end up with 9 banal books.

Another princess
ANOTHER MAGIC SWORD
Tacked on side quests
WHINGING

As always, the Audible reviews VASTLY exaggerate the books merits.

mehh

it wasent bad but for me the enjoyable thing about this story was the absolute logic of the main character. in this book it seems that the author sacrificed that logic to make the story have more twists...

Nick Podehl at it again

Nick Podehl could make a reading of shipping manifests interesting. Luckily this book is very interesting, too.

The 4. Part in the X amount of Books in Rezkins story, is told at an incredible pace,something the previous book sorely missed. At times too fast.

This book is the second best in the series (number 2 being the best), because the side characters are really fleshed out and you learn a lot about Rezkin and his background (up until the second to last sentence in the epilogue even).

Suffice it to say I binged this book!
