Summary

There’s thunder on the horizon, and the lightning of war is about to strike.

After years of struggle, Layla Cassidy has finally mastered the dark powers that threatened to control her and turned them to good. She’s ready to fight, but the next battle will be her greatest test yet.

The forces of Avalon are growing ever stronger, reinforcing their dominance with almighty displays of brutality. When Abaddon comes close to crushing Layla and her friends, it’s clear that the thunder of war is about to give way to lightning - and that they have no chance of surviving it alone.

The final battle against Abaddon is drawing closer. Now Layla and her friends must fight for themselves - and the future of the world. To win, they will need every power and ally they can muster. But even with all their strength, will it be enough to stand against the impending doom?

great story but bad narration

Outstanding story.
Amazing writing.....with an awesome end that got me excited......
Major downside is the terrible narration.
Unfortunately this narrator has limited voices and those she does are incredibly similar to others in the story.
biggest downside and an insult to the writing is her lack of correct pronunciation of the characters who's names are NOT just part of this writers work but many are well known and simply pronounced wrong.

Fabulous!

Once again Mr. McHugh has written a fabulous book . Gripping from the first page to the last. With the best Epilogue. Cannot wait for the next series to start and a return to my favourite characters, and the final battles with Avalon. Thank you!

Brilliant way to end a phenomenal trilogy. The voice work is amazing and fits each character nicely.

Better than I expected.

I truly appreciate how all of the characters were brought together. I REALLY love the cliffhangers on a few stories. It gives me hope that the stories will continue for Nate, Laliah and the new Shadow Elf (Tarryan/if it's misspelled, my apologies). Arthur his followers need to be stopped.

I can't wait to see what happens next. As the next series will undoubtedly cause a big stir in the world of the Hellequin chronicles.
