Rejected by all, Mordecai must learn to master the darkness within if he is to stop Mal'goroth from destroying humanity.

To win, he must somehow transform his own damnation into mankind's salvation.

Good story, unsympathetic protagonist

I enjoyed the over all premise of the story and it was well thought out and well written, but his main character across the whole series comes across as a sleazy voyeur who takes every opportunity to leer lecherously any time a bit of flesh is on show.
Also, the interactions between him and his spouse seem strangely odd. They seem to have a relationship built on anger and this just didn’t ring true to me. They seemed to fly off the handle at the drop of a hat. It seemed wholly dysfunctional.
All that being said, however, I did enjoy the story and even though the main character annoyed me, I did read the full series.

Amazing

So gripping throughout ALL of the books. Its sad to see the journey of Mordecai Illenial come to a close. I want to hear more! Perhaps we shall get a continuation eventually, of young Matthew Illenial in his later years...

Great book

Enjoyed the series so much that after a year I had to listen to it again. I hate incomplete endings that does nothing to satisfy. Not the case here. I felt whole and satisfied. Thanks

Stupid Never Dies

This book was a huge disappointment. Although I enjoyed the previous volumes in this series, "stupid never dies" applies to this final volume.

Enjoyed it a lot...

A good sl with humor. While I like the narrator's main voice, some of his others sound much the same & his female voices need some work. :-)

Wow. this last book is such an increase in the story line. I was very impressed with the way the main character became two people.

Not great writing, poor editing. But great story

Really enjoyed this book. The writing is not good. The editing is flawed. The story is somewhat generic but compellingly told and performed.

Great great ending in a wonderful story of a Mage.

I loved it, all of the books in this series were wonderfully executed. If you like magical origin stories, this is a must read.
