The final instalment of this fabulous bestselling series. The Tide Lords have gathered in Jelidia to find out the secret of how to kill an immortal...
Cayal in particular. Before they can do this, however, they must find the Chaos Crystal that brought them into this world.
They initially head to Glaeba, where Akady has been captured by Jaxyn. She escapes and flees to Caelum, where she runs into Warlock and his family and learns that Elyssa, Warlock's cruel immortal mistress, may know something about the location of the Crystal.
With every immortal on Amyrantha searching for this artefact, the stakes are very high...

"An abrupt and brutal ending will shock even those fans who love Fallon's work for its unstinting darkness and cynicism." (Publishers Weekly)
The final part to a brilliant series! I have loved the series and the performance both. Sadly the ending is not one I found very satisfying, which stopped me giving it s 5star rating, but I know things like endings of a series are very personal preferences.
I loved this series from start to finish. I am hoping that maybe we will see more of Akady, Cayel and Declan in the future. The narrator is super and adds to the whole experience. 10 out of 10 with bells on.
All through this last book I was wondering "how on earth will this finish"? I see that some people were disappointed by the ending, but I found it rather clever (after initially being a bit surprised), and enjoyed the journey thoroughly.
Ending seemed rushed. It felt like the author decided to do something new, trying to make it relevant but after three books the three chapters at the end ruined the whole series for me. I put a lot of time and money into this series and I'm disappointed it ended the way it did. She threw a lot away and it could have ended very differently. The narrators performance was super as per usual though. Really shine through. But this is going to be another book I am inventing my own ending for.

After 4 books this feels like an aborted end. A story where the beginning was planned but the end not thought through.
All credit to the narrator who made it possible to finish what was an uncomfortable end.
I was a skeptic of audible books, but I've been won over! I listen to my books everywhere, even while cooking. Audible is a perfect escape!
This is one of those books that have an age limit for enjoyment. Honestly, the author still has a way to go in developing her skills in this category. Her storyline although somewhat complex, it is presented with a lack of finesse, almost as if it was not thoroughly thought through and made up along the way, throwing in characters and twists in a chaotic manner while dragging the story!! Unfortunately, the scenes or the fictional worlds were/was not sufficiently or creatively described to inspire belief.
The narrator was ok, but his voice variations seemed somewhat limited and ending up confusing the characters for me...
Personally, a combination of an incredibly well thought out plot, that drew me in and refused to let me go, and a narrator who I enjoyed listening to.
All the twist and turns. I love a book that you think you know where the plot is going, and maybe your right. But sometimes, where you end up, just comes out of no where. That is what I liked best about the story.
He is easy to listen to, but he also did a good job with the various characters. He gave them all a voice you came to recognize, making the story easier to follow.
The ending. It made me do both, and then some.
A very good author, the entire series had me pulled in from the start. I am glad that I stumbled on to this series, and will continue to listen to more of her books.
