Publisher's Summary

Eidolon is the sequel to Radiance and book two in the Wraith Kings series.

In a bid for more power, the Shadow Queen of Haradis unleashes a malignant force into the world. Her son Brishen, younger prince of the Kai royal house, suddenly finds himself ruler of a kingdom blighted by a diseased darkness. His human wife Ildiko must decide if she will give up the man she loves in order to save his throne. Three kingdoms on the verge of war must unite to save each other, and a one-eyed, reluctant king will raise an army of the dead to challenge an army of the damned. A tale of alliance and sacrifice.

    Story
    "DOES LOVE ALWAYS TRIUMPH?"

    It's out of character for me to choose a sweet love story since they tend to be cookie-cutter so I generally stay away. I prefer dark, gritty, suspense, action, fun and sex. I chose this series because of the human+alien+ugly factor. It drew me in from the beginning and turned out to be so much more.

    This book picks up exactly where Radiance left off.

    In the Shadow Queens greed for power she dabbles in black magic. In doing so she unleashes a horror over the kingdom.

    Meanwhile Brishen and Ildiko have fallen deeply in love, and adore each other. When word travels to them about the horror of his parents kingdom...Brishen has to take the King's throne. Because Ildiko is human they are told she can not be Queen. The King is supposed to produce heirs and humans and Kai cannot conceive. This obviously causes angst between Brishen and Ildiko.

    In addition to Brishen and Ildiko's troubles the horror unleashed on Brishen's parents kingdom also threatens neighboring kingdoms. The Kings form an alliance to deal with the horror.

    I'm about to say something about a series I've never said before: I fell in love with Brishen and Ildiko. You can feel their love for each other. I'm looking forward to the continuation of their story.

    Between Grace Draven's writing and Gabrielle Baker's performance you will also fall in love with Brishen and Ildiko.

    Absolutely worth a credit/$$.

    "Love It ~ Awesome Sequel!"

    I'll admit, I've stalked Audible everyday for over a month after learning the sequel to Radiance was coming to audio. The day Eidolon hit Audible, I downloaded it, and the story was every bit as good as book one! If you have not listened to Radiance, I highly recommend starting there!

    I loved Brishen and Ildiko from book one, and while book one was "their" falling in love story, book two picks up nicely on their relationship, but has more of a fantasy feel. An evil force has come to destroy everything in it's path, and Brishen will have to make hard decisions, unite kings, raise an army, and rob his people if he is to have any hopes of banishing these evil forces. While Brishen prepares for the ultimate battle, Ildiko faces hard decisions as well; does she stay with the man she loves or let him go so he can find a suitable queen to take her place among his people. Their relationship will face many trials, but neither of them are willing to let go. The banter between Brisen and Ildiko was sweet and funny.

    Gabrielle Baker's performance was fantastic! She narrates the story with such grace. However, it would be awesome, and add more depth to the romance, if future stories were narrated from a m/f dual narrating team. But regardless if it's one or two narrators, as long as Gabrielle Baker is one of the narrators, I'm on board for the rest of the series audio.

    I loved Eidolon! It's full adventure, action, love, and loss. Grace Draven did an amazing job with the world building, and character development. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Well worth the credit and time!

    "Wonderful follow-up to the first book ."

    I absolutely love these characters and their strengths and love for one another.

    This storyline shows how the characters continue to work through the differences between their species. Despite the fact the they are not supposed to be physically beautiful by their standards of their people, they are attracted to one another.

    "An epic, moving, and thrilling tale"

    I adored the book when I read it, but listening to Grace Draven's incandescent words uttered by marvelous narrator Gabrielle Baker lifted it to an entirely new level. The tail is epic, fierce and fraught with danger, yet the true heart and soul of Eidolon is the deep vein of abiding love between Kai prince Brishen and his beloved human princess, Ildiko. A novel that remains with the listener long after the last syllable is spoken.

    "Great, but the first part of the series was better"

    I greatly enjoyed revisiting these characters. Eidolan made for an entertaining story. It is more dramatic and suspenseful than its predecessor. While still a good story, the shift away from romance made its less enjoyable than the first for me.

    "OMG I LOVED IT!!!!!"
    Where does Eidolon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to hundreds of books and this book tops them all so much so that this is my first time writing a review I was that impressed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The building on this love story was gradual but not so slow that you lose interest in the story line. The friendship that turned into love made it feel so real


    What does Gabrielle Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Raw emotion pure and simple.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved the humor between the two lovers so at time I found myself laughing.


    Any additional comments?

    Please tell me there will be a third book that focus on the lost King ( the monk) and a love story between Serovek and Anhuset.
