The Dark has nearly consumed the planet. Men and beasts have been stripped of their minds, their bodies twisted to serve the Master's will. Her army now numbers in the trillions and is led by two supreme generals. Even the mages have no power to stop her. Driving the survivors to a last bastion of freedom, she calls for the decimated army to surrender.
But mankind stands defiant.
From the ashes of nations the people have united, and together they brace for the impending storm. Bereft of retreat or refuge, they hold to a single hope - that the Oracle can destroy the Dark before everyone is slaughtered. Facing the end, the Oracle must rise to her birthright and find that which can cleanse the Earth of darkness.

I love my wife, dogs, cats and the occasional pigs in that order. I used to love reading but now it's listening!!!
The voice was the book. The story full of epic people, and a fitting climax to an epic series. Now for the next series!!!!
At times the writing is a little simplistic but in general this and the whole series is very enjoyable.
Performed by the engrosing Derek Perkins the story will sweep you along on a fantastic journey! Well worth a read or listen!
I love everything with an excellent storyline...
Really well read and an excellent finale to the series. I couldn't ask for more!
Very big audible fan.
I enjoyed every minute of this audio book. This was such a great ending to what was a fantastic series. I have really enjoyed every book that Ben hale has written and I can't wait to find out what comes next. Another great narration from Dereck I loved every minute. If you want a series that has action and adventure with magic and fantacey then give this series ago, you won't be disappointed.
Riveting, listened once then had to listen again. An epic tale immaculately performed that finishes well but still leaves you wanting more.
why some people compared it to potter I don't no. Great books all 5 good read and listen. talk about ups and downs good v evil won't say any more give it away .
This 5 book series is a excellent read it will keep you wanting to cheer for the good guys and wanting moor. I was so glad for the final book to be released and totally satisfied with the ending.
"Fight, Fight, Fight, then Deus Ex."
Too many passages of fighting. Just way too many. And they seemed to get a little repetitive. After 50 fights against OVERWHELMING odds, you kind of start to lose a little something for the fighters. Especially after they do some of the stupidest stuff ever. Hey, let's leave this OP guy alive - who pops back up to kick your teeth in. Didn't see that coming? I did.
Other than the fact he kept confusing Derrick's voice with Iris, awesome.
I don't know.
Maybe because it would be almost interesting to see if he could write more than three paragraphs without a 20 paragraph BAH fight scene. The ending was pretty optimistic, despite how dark the whole series was. Don't see how it can continue.
I"M DONE. YEAH. So dark! Almost depressing. SPOILERS: You killed Jack? and Breaker? and most terribly of all Hawk - once. But a jerk like Cayden gets two or three? Really? And isn't the myth "from the ashes, the Phoenix will rise"? That you didn't is one of the biggest FAILS of these novels. What's up with that? What's the point of Hawk being a phoenix? What? OOh that still gets my goat. And all those WTH moments. And no last words from Iris? Ugh!
"Ben and Derek RocK!"
Derek has to be one of the best readers that I have listened to.
This book has great depth and appears to have multiple series broken off from it. I especially liked how it has expanded from epic times with elves, dwarves, and mages to adding modern military and spy issues to the later books.
They kept the narrator the same made this a series one to keep listening to
"I loved it."
couldn't stop listening. I'm a huge fan of this series. cant wait to start Luminier books.
Love this book.
Everything about this book is dope
everyone says this is a harry potter rip but harry potter came from many other stories combined. this is its own story and is very good. the last three books really made the series for me.
buy it you will have made a serious mistake. this book is amazing and a must read.
I'm sad to finish another wonderful story! This was a truly engaging story that sparked your imagination and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time! Just fantastic and highly recommended!
"Loved this series"
I am so heartbroken to end this series. I absolutely loved the characters and story. Excellent end to an amazing series
