Summary

A mage out of her element. 

After 500 years as a magic teacher, Selia thought she'd seen everything. But nothing prepared her for the chaos of her assignment at Braelyn. Assassins, rogue princes, and a grown, half-human student - all had caught her off guard. Now, things have settled down, and her life has begun to take on a sense of normalcy. Until her seemingly dead husband reappears astride a dragon with a dire warning about Earth. 

An adventurer far from home. 

For seven years, Aris was held captive on the isle of dragons, hidden so well that only his captor knew of his presence. But when a dragon claims him as her rider and flies him away on an urgent mission, Aris isn't certain he wants to return home. Tortured and scarred, not even thoughts of his lost family renew his desire for life. Unfortunately, death isn't on the table - not with danger threatening multiple worlds. 

A widening abyss. 

Life might have settled on Moranaia after Prince Kien's death, but the rogue prince hasn't gone to his death as quietly as his people believed. As poison seeps into a crack in Earth's energy field, a greater catastrophe looms. Now, a dragon, a broken adventurer, and an uncertain mage are the only ones who stand in the way of disaster.

hearing the story put a totally different spin on it. from the different kinds of expressions used when reading it too then listening to it it makes the story more imaginative in your mind

Magic Teacher Selia's reunion

Selia and Aris were married and had a son - then Aris is believed to be dead in a horrible accident, but has actually been held prisoner and tortured for 7 years.

Then her apparently dead husband shows up riding a dragon saying Earth is in danger...and gone is the strong confident Aris that Selia used to know. He's been tortured and doesn't know how to react to anyone, even his own son.
Selia and Aris need to work together to save the Earth from the poison seeping into its energy field but Aris' tortured past keeps haunting him -

This book discusses mental health issues and PTSD after being chained and tortured for 7 years. It may be a well written paranormal story but can be a little too raw for some readers.

Slow going

I love this series, but for some reason this particular book took me forever to get through. I had such a hard time staying with it. The narration was great, but they storyline was so slow.

boring

of all the books so far, I have to say I found this one to be the most boring. I skipped several unnecessary chapters that led to things that easily could have been addressed in one chapter.
I am extremely happy that this series is almost complete because it seems like the the author has really run out of good story materials.

love this series

I love this series. Each book further develops each character and has romance but only lightly. There is an actual story, not just sex.

GREAT BOOK IN A GREAT SERIES

I've bought and read every book in the series and thought it would be fun to listen to this while on my daily hourly walks.
Its was SO great! Like being part of the adventure. The material is serious, of course, and I wish the solution was as simple
for the sicknesses that are happening to and on our earth. Bethany Adams is a really great writer. Her world building is wonderful. So beautifully described it makes you want to move to this part of the Elves world right now! I love this group of characters which keep showing up, book after book as other characters are added.
Each story is a great addition to the series. but this and SUNDERED, book 2, also "Included", are 2 of my favorites.
And then there is the performance, which really made the book come alive. One of the best I've listened to! Can't wait for the next one!
