King Tryton has rebuilt a nation, forged peace from war, and returned his people to the honor they had lost. Now guarding mages, guildmasters, and kings, the rock trolls inspire respect rather than fear. In spite of his feats, it is his family that brings him pride. He has trained his children in every facet of combat, preparing them for a world of conflict.
It will not be enough.
In the distant past another rock troll reigned supreme - until he disappeared. His will was bound to another, his flesh empowered with forgotten magic, and his body covered with impenetrable armor. Now he leads an army from another realm and serves the Lord of Chaos himself. Bound for eons, his rage has only grown in exile. When he gains his freedom the invasion begins.
And the world ends.

I love this book, having listened to the rest of the Luminea chronicles it was great to see the story unfold from another angle. I really connected with Triton such a strong character, love love love him!
A compelling tale, wh Trolls, giants, Dwarfs, Orcs, Elves, etc...a post-apocalyptic and apocalyptic strory in one.
"AN INSPIRING STORY. IT WILL PULL YOU IN'"
The view of Rock-Trolls quickly becomes more like one's ideological view of Spartans. Bigger, stronger, faster, and tougher than anyone else. It made them powerful
The struggle was moral in how that power was used. Americans should take a lesson.
Narration was perfect and especially suited to people of war. Mr Lister is a favorite. I never give 15 stars but, what can I say, it moved me. Kw
Would love to hear what else goes on after his family is gone and who he meets
Devastated that I'm at the end of this series. One of my new favorite authors.
Who can even pull off battle scenes for that many chapters???? ahhh just amazeballs!
Also, Ralph Lister is one of my top audiobook narrators (why I purchased it in the first place). So awesome all around.
"Love all of Ben Hale!"
I don't normally like the same story from a different view point, especially when I know the ending....or think I do. Didn't see the twist coming. Recommend all Hales books and Lister is fantastic!
"one of the greats!!!!"
this is by far one of the greatest series I have ever read/listened to. It will be reread and relistened to over and over again!
"Awesome end to an awesome trilogy"
Amazing story, amazing narrator. Worth starting the series from the beginning. You wont regret it.
