Description

The fourth book in the Evermen Saga.

The Lord of the Night is coming. The future of civilization is at stake.

Miro, high lord of Altura, is in the Imperial capital to prepare the Empire for the onslaught. He knows his homeland lies directly in the enemy's path but struggles to form the alliances he needs.

As the high lords bicker, Ella seeks the help of the newly crowned emperor, Killian. But, amid the growing tensions, their responsibilities drive them apart and, as emperor, Killian can't be seen to favor Ella's homeland.

Against a backdrop of old hurts, guilty secrets, and shaky new allegiances, people of all nations and abilities must learn to trust one another again, and form a united front against a powerful enemy intent on destroying them once and for all.

Thoroughly enjoyable but a little too convenient

I've now finished listening to this series and I enjoyed the entire thing. Simon Vance, as always, makes this book come alive and choosing him as a reader saved it, because the story itself sort of falls together too easily -- too many last minute saves, narrow escapes, etc. etc. The term dues ex machina definitely comes to mind.

So, I would unhesitatingly suggest this as an enjoyable tale, but at same time, warn people that they shouldn't expect anything deep or terribly moving from the text itself. This is a real shame because some of the premises, like the nature of gods, are very interesting and could have been the subject of much deeper inquiry. As it is, it is a fun and enjoyable bit of fluff, great for whiling the miles away, and certainly not a source of frustration. But do realize, it is Simon Vance's skill as a reader, that saves this book from being entirely skippable.

Everything I've come to expect from a fantasy saga

... and that's saying something for a 4 book saga. Interesting characters, court intrigue, diabolical villains, apocalyptic battles, star-crossed lovers and superb narration.

Absolutely brilliant

I was so caught up in this book that there were tears, shouts, groans, encouragement and even insults being thrown at it as I listened.

Fantastic series. Ella is the best.

So good......

Enjoyed this book

The ending of most books are cut and dry, then it's over. This book is an exception to that rule. The last chapters completely finishes the story when it tells about what happens to people you grew to like and wanted to see what happens to them. Worth reading all of these books. Listened through Audible. The narrator's voice fit this story perfectly. Bravo! Not many do.

Beginnings

What a wonderful ending/beginning for these characters. The narrator's performances through this series was impeccable and I thank you for making the characters come alive from an epic storyline by Maxwell's mind. I highly recommend this series.

Breath taking saga

If you enjoy fantasy that has grounding in reality, you’ll love this. Listening through Audible it was easy to picture the vistas, the variety of people. Many of the war scenes were difficult for me to listen to, but I feel this way with many war descriptions. The determination and love of many of the people far outweighed my feelings about war. I was thrilled to see the saga end with loose ends tied together in the most satisfying of ways.

Hammer

Sehr gut. Besser als Buch 3 (das allerdings auch sehr gut war). Buch 3 war zu sehr eine Art Zusammenfassung, um alles für Buch 4 auf Ordnung zu bringen. Allerdings war dies erfolgreich... Es hätte ruhig mehr Bücher geben können innerhalb dieser Serie; es wäre alles weniger gehetzt gewesen. Aber wer weiß, warum dies nicht der Fall war. Weil Maxwell es noch üben musste, oder wg. Anforderungen des Herausgebers, oder vllt. quatsche ich nur Unfug. Ich empfehle diese Serie wärmstens. auch Höfe sehr, irgendwann geht es irgendwie weiter in dieser magischen Welt. Klasse vorgelesen durch Simon Vance.
