The Eternal Emperor Shinzan continues to gather his strength. And the power he will unleash is beyond the imaginings of the spirits themselves. No army can stand against him. There is only one who can give Lumnia the freedom she has craved for so long. Only one who can save the world from being consumed by the Emperor's evil. But will it be Ethan who faces him? Or will it be Martok?

Sorry but the story went nowhere, characters were shallow and it just felt like a money making episode. Will not be continuing with anymore in this series. Shame as 1,2 and 3 were very much engrossing.
"Back Story on Martok"
Yes, the narrator makes this book so much more lively when he reads it.
I would say that to continue the series you must listen to this. I am not as sure if the next one will be worthwhile but if it isn't I will likely stop following this series.
Great as all of his performances. He is one of the two top narrators that I listen to.
No. Usually the answer would be yes but I wasn't as entertained by going backwards in the story and focusing a lot of time on Martok's history.
A well written and performed story. It seemed to have a rather long tangent from the main story, a lot of backstory. Overall I've enjoyed the series and even this book 4. I look forward to the fifth installment.
"A very enjoyable series; Awaiting book 5"
I have enjoyed this series very much!
The story is a tad formulaic, and thus somewhat predictable. But otherwise, there was sufficient action and intrigue to hold my interest throughout. I was surprised and slightly disappointed to find the cliff-hanger at the conclusion of this book. I agree with some other reviewers that there should really have been no need for a fifth book. But I'll be adding it to my library once it is available.
The narration is top-notch! Derek Perkins is truly gifted, and he gave a performance here that would be hard to beat.
I recommend this series highly.
spellbinding. the characters are engaging. the story is fantastic. wish they didn't make you right 20 words to review it.
It was a good book and I really enjoyed it. However, this is just my opinion, but it really could have done without all the sex type stuff. At one point I wasn't sure if I could make it and I was starting to get a bit miffed about it. It does eventually stop. Despite this it is a good book. I am looking forward to the next book and I will definitely get it to see what happens next. I'd recommend this book.
"Really good book"
I really like the book series, saying the narrative is excellent is an under statement.
good story but would have been a better side book. not much of it has to do with what I would consider the original story line. still good character background info.
"The Dragonvein is connected to the Dragonheart"
I would. I read 54% of the printed version and then one day i put it down and didn't pick it back up. When i got the audible version I finally finished it.
The battle finally starts and history is known. We now wait for the conclusion.
no but it was enjoyable
I have really enjoyed this,series of books. At the end of each book, you feel the need to get the next quickly.
"Another great instalment."
I almost thought this was the last book, and anticlimactic. I was wrong thankfully. Another great listen.
