Summary

It has been 18 years since the fall of the Reborn King, and Jayden Stedding, son of Gewey, dreams of adventure. Life as a farmer in Sharpstone offers very little excitement. But like his father before him, fate will descend like a storm and soon he will learn that with adventure comes peril. And when you are the son of a god, that peril can shatter worlds. 

Heaven is once again in turmoil and Gewey Stedding is missing. And it falls to Jayden to find him. But his journey will take him places even the gods fear to tread. Carried to the edge of madness, he must restore hope and prevent time itself from being upended.

What only half a book

Would have given the story much more but it just stops
Obviously there’s more to come but just feeling a little bit mugged off

Annoying

I knew from the outset where this was going... Should have stopped at book 6 rather than repeating the whole story again

Like Father, Like Son

If you get the world and character building right, then you’re more than half way there and this series had both.

Moving forward 18 years, this book follows Jayden, Gewey’s son, who I have to admit not taking a liking to at all. That said, I enjoyed the book immensely. However, I did not find this book wrapped up the Chronicles at all, if anything it left the ending wide open, but I do not see another book coming, so I am not sure where it leaves us!

wow what a ripoff

thought the story was boring waste of a book treading lame path pathetic attempt at intrigue pointless should have been 2 or 3 chapters in a proper book trying to make a trilogy out of a short story full of padding and boy was I disappointed. what tablet down

The Journey continues

I am thrilled Brian Anderson has chosen to continue the story. The plot and character development are very well crafted. I especially like listening to characters in previous novels and how they are woven into this new adventure. Derek, once again was an excellent choice to continue the narration. His talent in making the characters come alive is amazing. I hope Brian will be releasing the next volume very soon!

A great continuation to a fun series.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first series and love the creativity in this new novel. I was hooked from the start and binged listened to the end. Highly recommended.

Unexpected, confounding, and desperate for book 8

Not expecting book 7, it was pleasantly surprising To find this installment. Things take an unexpected turn which is a bit baffling. I fear I will not rest until the next book is out, however the author seems preoccupied with other tasks. This delay is nearly unbearable.

Not a continuation

I find it hysterical that people think this is continuing the series. Bryan has stated that it’s the final book, and because it is the final book, I think it is hands-down a terrible fit. The timeline change was so necessary and really added nothing, and I don’t really understand the ending, it seems like a paradox Donnie Darko style which is so far fetched from the original story and plot.

Narrator is great, I appreciate the emotion Perkins brings to this series and his myriad of voices and tones are great, will probably pick up more audiobooks with him narrating.

This is a first hand impression, I just finished the book not even 15 minutes ago, so it’s likely that my opinion will change over time, and maybe I will understand what Bryan was going for with this book later, but as of right now, I think this book was unnecessary, but the call back to some characters was extremely welcome and enjoyable.

*Spoilers ahead*




I wanna talk about the ending. If Jaden and Gewey are both cast back into the past, and for the original story to occur, Gewey technically has to die, because the elves are alive. If Gewey dies, does jaden cease to exist? And if jaden ceases to exist, doesn’t it make the entire story non existent? Is it a cheeky way of saying hey thus is a book, and it isn’t real? Or is the way it ends being left open ended by the final battle not taking place before the book ends a way of signifying that Jaden finds a different way back home? Or does it signify that jaden establishes Peace and the elves and humans get along because he convinces his father not to commit genocide? More questions than answers, which I guess is fine because it’s different and creative, but it’s a real head scratcher. Can’t say I’m impressed but I’ll remember this, for better or for worse.

A masterful start that picks up 18 years after book 6 ends. I can't wait for book 8!

The Saga Continues

Brian did an amazing job continuing what was once an already amazing story and carried it further. My hope is that he continues this story line because I've come to truly love all of the characters. A great read!

wow

Well hope there will be a book # 8 ?
can't leave us all hanging.
there was an intro in the first book, & since this was in the middle of a story, thought he would have said yes or no to another book. I have enjoy them all so far, 1 thru 6 have listened this was the 3rd time, first for # 7.

Brilliant Opening to continue the series!

A brilliant start to continue the series!

This takes place many years later after books 1-6. Gewey Steding now has 3 full-grown kids. And he is missing. It's up to his son to try and find his father, and save his mother. The problem? Half the Gods are on his side, the other Half ... want to see him fail. The plot is great, and the entire story has you on the edge of your seat. It's great to revisit some old characters, as well as see some new ones! This is one of my favorite series by Brian D. Anderson, and I'm very excited to see him revisiting it!

I can't wait to read the next book. The narrator of the audio book, as always, does a fantastic job! I think there's only one more planned in this series, but Brian can just keep on going, and I'll keep on reading this series!
