Summary

Years have passed since the last of the Dark Gods was defeated, and Lothion has entered an age of peace and prosperity. Mordecai’s oldest children have already begun to make a place for themselves, and his youngest are on the cusp of adulthood. By every outward measure, his life has been a success; he has earned his reward.

However, Tyrion, the first wizard and brutal liberator of mankind, has returned with an agenda of his own, and dark things continue to stir at the edges of civilization, threatening to undo Mordecai’s accomplishments.

He must meet the expectations of his queen, his family, and his people, all while finding a way to protect them from the ancient enemy of the She’Har, but his greatest challenge may be dealing with the lingering darkness that is growing within his own heart.

Holy smokes. Alex Wyndham and Michael G Manning.

I haven't been this excited about a new series on audible for a while. And thank the gods it delivers and then some. Some of the best narration and fantasy writing on audible. Period.

If an ANGEL made a baby with a SIREN...

If an ANGEL made a baby with a SIREN... it would sound like Alex Wyndham. With over 300 books in my audible collection, Michael G has created my favorites. This book is at the top and I even cried a little. I wish that Alex Wyndham could read the Mageborn series over and my world would be complete. I couldn't listen to the books read by Todd McLaren. I just couldn't take his voice seriously, so I read those myself. Bravo Michael G!! Keep em' coming baby!

Alex Wyndham. Incredible.

I can\t get over how much Alex Wyndham brings to this book. I listen to everything he narrates and the warmth and depth of his performance always blows me away. His characters, the way he draws you in - I lose hours. I love Michael's writing as well so this is match made in heaven. So emotional. So so good!!

True Magic!

I love the combination of Alex Wyndham as narrator and Michael G. Manning as writer, and have been a huge fan ever since the two teamed up on the Embers of Illenial series. I admit I cried during this book! I can't wait for the rest of the series. Thank you Alex and Michael for bringing magic to my life! I only wish the books were longer! Highly recommended!

I honestly don't remember if I have ever had such an emotional reaction while reading an audiobook before, but hot dang I would be lying if I didn't say I had one during this book.

I cannot get behind the performer OR this discontinuity between the series performers

I thoroughly enjoyed the adventures of Mordecai in the Blackmith's son and that entire story arc narrated by McClaren I believe. Then the sequel series narrated by Derek Perkins was also very satisfying. I cannot get behind Alex Wyndham's narration style. I've tried. Even after enjoying the first two series, I could not finish the first book of the prequels. It was already a set of characters that I had not yet developed a loyalty to but it was narrated by Wyndham. I cannot stand that he pronounces cities and places differently than the other two performers. It kills the moment for me and it ruins continuity because I get sucked out of the story and begin focusing on his voice style and performance. I tried another series called Lusam, again performed by Wyndham and I just thought it was awful. I can basically tolerate and get lost in any fantasy series. But Wyndham has such a limited assortment of different voices for characters that it's hard to enjoy fantasy by him as they are usually ripe with many many different characters. He has basically three characters he can do which is 1) the main voice of main character and every other male from 18-50 age, 2) his slightly grumbly old man voice for elderly men or anyone who works as a pirate, inn keep, blacksmith etc 3) his "female" voice which just awful and he uses it for anyone under 18 or any female. I have never given a negative review on single thing in my life and I am an absolute sucker for any sci-fi or fantasy, but this dude is just boring and terrible. I'm sorry that I have to give such low marks to a Michael G. Manning novel but even with all the characters I've grown to love in Mordecai's world, I hated it. Stop hiring this dude!
