Summary

Beyond the firewall lies a greater threat than Taimin and Selena could have foreseen.

Taimin and Selena have destroyed the firewall that once trapped them in their dangerous wasteland. But with their hard-fought freedom now comes a greater threat.

Outside the wasteland, under the same two scorching suns, live the bonded. This powerful ancient enemy will unleash a destructive war on the wasteland’s inhabitants, and Taimin knows it’s a fight they cannot win.

When Zorn comes under attack, Selena uses all her power as a mystic to protect the white city. Meanwhile Taimin’s path takes him to Agravida, the capital of the advanced bonded civilization - where he must work fast to find a weakness in a seemingly unbeatable enemy.

To save everyone in the wasteland from certain death, Taimin and Selena seek to contact their ancestors in the stars. But will they reach them in time, and will their help be enough to turn the tide? The existence of the world is in their hands…

Excellent Story

I really enjoyed this trilogy. It is primarily geared for young adults. The main characters are well developed over the course of the three stories. The inclusion of the 5 races and how they come together is also well done. Amazing what fighting for your very existence will force you to do. The ending is a bit rushed but resolves all the outstanding threads very nicely. Overall a fun read and Simon Vance turns in another masterful performance. A little violent but otherwise appropriate for most audiences. Highly recommended.

A very well paced adventure

By book 3, the narration and voice acting couldn't be better. A journey to a distant future with multiple alien but relatable races coming together to fight a common foe. Thoroughly entertaining!

Realty Nice Trilogy

just finished listening to book three. this is a really nice story, the characters are consistent throughout and the setting is interesting. You can identify with the struggles of the key characters and in the end good wins out. I love the diverse cast of aliens beings and that the books are suitable for old and young readers alike.

loved it!

This was one of my favorite series. I love that the story stays more focused on the two main characters. The ending was really surprising, which was awesome, because I didnt guess what would happen. I highly recommend it.

Great Series Ending

The author has a great way of really using his imagination while writing his fantasies. I enjoyed this series tremendously and would recommend it to any fantasy lover! Strong characters with a lot of suspense while we wait to see the outcome of different worlds and their species work out their lives! Great narration also!
