No amount of training has prepared Jaevid Broadfeather for the front lines of battle. Now facing the true horrors of war, with Luntharda looming on the horizon, Jaevid has begun to question everything he thought about his heritage. The only thing keeping him going is his oath to protect his dragonrider brothers. But in an instant, even that slips through Jaevid's fingers as he steps from the safety of his dragon's saddle into the depths of his mother's wild homeland - the kingdom of the gray elves.
Stranded in Luntharda with his partner, Lieutenant Jace Rordin, Jaevid must finally confront the demons of his own past as he uncovers the truth about a war that began before he was ever born. Armed with a new appreciation for destiny, and flanked by his trusted friends, Jaevid moves to make the final strike against an enemy that has been hiding in plain sight for far too long.
One kingdom's traitor will become the world's last hope.

Very big audible fan.
This was as good as any of the other 2 books in this series, just wish there were more for me to listen to. The whole storey line captured my attention and wouldn't let go and left me wanting more. Like i said before if you like stories with dragons, magic and adventure this series is for you.
I love the way the story continues from the other books. the reading is great also.
"good audio story"
fun story easy and entertaining with good characters both human and animal. makes for a good series
"The best book in the series yet!"
This series gets better and better. As Javed joins his new comrades in Emerald Flight, he and his former instructor, now wingman, grow closer as a team, he is faced with his biggest challenge of all.
I can't wait for the next book!
Yet another great book in a wonderful series. I am anxiously awaiting the next adventure.
This series gets better and better. The narrator is quite a good fit for this type of book.
"Another great story in the series..."
This is another great one in the series. the characters are coming together quite nicely.
The voice was ok... Not a Luke Daniels but ok....
"Lend me your ears!"
This is a terrific series and I can hardly wait to bring number four up so I can once again lose myself in the plot, action, romance, and colorful characters so wonderfully woven together in the three preceding books. Author Nicole Conway has blended all facets together so the action is not the main stay of the book but rather another aspect of a well rounded book where all segments combine. By now the characters are well defined and move the plot along briskly to the last line of the book which leaves us scrambling for #4. (I really resent the never ending series when there are months of delay between the books and you have to relisten to the last of the previous book to remind you why you wanted to spend a credit on this one!) I wasn't pleased with narrator Einstein in the first book. To me he came out as being 'a little over the top' in the first book but he's relaxed and allowed the natural cadence and emotion of the book power his reading. Much better now. I won't let his name on the credits deter any future purchase. Speaking of which, I'll be downloading the fourth book as soon as I send this off.
"Best Series I've read in a Long Time!"
Have a narrator that reads well and brings the character to life. AND having the same narrator that's read for the previous books in the series, which keeps me grounded to the character.
Duh, Jaevid, of course! Totally in love with him by this point because of his struggles being a half breed. Yet, he's wound up being a top notch dragon rider and even got a great girl by his side. And what's not to love about the magic he's discovered within him and how to control it?
Um, I feel this is virtually the same question as above. And the answer is still Jaevid! Jesse has done all the books and I seriously can't imagine another voice being attached to the character now. I could hear the emotion in his voice when he read.
There were so many moments, it's hard to pick just one. But one that sticks out is the moment Jaevid realizes he'll have to tell Felix about what he has become and that the gray elves aren't their real enemy. While I believed Felix would stand by his side, there was a fear Nicole wouldn't write it that way and it'd would've broken my heart.
An absolute must buy and listen!!! This series has made me fonder of dragons!
"Really enjoyed this book"
You'll like this book if you like Eragon, Godling chronicles, and other Dragon / Elves stories. Great read. Can't wait to finish the series.
"Still a good story, but lacks some execution"
The combination of the readers voice and the writing style take away from what is an interesting plot line. The mental musings of the main character...especially during key decision moments....feel rough, construed, artificial ....but, if you can skip those parts, and listen to the overall tale, its ok. The series connects nicely, and I haven't notice major errors.
The timeline is hard to handle, and in a better constructed book, it would be a key complaint, but here the issues hide with the other dust....along the lines of having to actually think about what the character is learning and the time it took.
In this book, I noticed there are more and more small events, small hurdles, that are handled like the sky is falling. Its a little over dramatic and begins to diminish the overall plot line. Note, its worse when the main character seems to repeat the same mental phrasings.
If you made it to this book in the series, then you might as well spend the credit.(maybe catch it on-sale at some point) Personally, I am going to break from this series for awhile and wait for one of those sales.
