Publisher's Summary

Tyrion was a good person who had been born to a simple family and raised with love, but the world has shaped him for a different fate. Twisted by violence and torture, he is obsessed with a relentless desire for vengeance, and he has sown the seeds of wrath in his children. The She'Har have offered him the opportunity to be a great leader and usher in a new era of prosperity and peace, but, despite his gentle beginnings, Tyrion is no hero.

Heroes are born to build, and while many laud the efforts of such leaders, others will work to bring them down, for all good things must come to an end. Every forest must inevitably face the flame.

Destiny has chosen Tyrion for a different path and has given him the spark that will burn the world to ashes. Embracing the evil within, he will reap a harvest of hatred, and no one will find safety in the purge of fire that he brings; even the betrayer has his bane.

Will anything be left to rise from the ash?

    "Imaginative writing to the end!"

    Having read the first two books of this trilogy, I was hoping the last one would be enthralling as the first two. I was not disappointed - it was thrilling, adventurous, exciting - moving me to tears of sadness and joy. What a wonderful writer this author is and my goodness the narrator was fantastic and could not be faulted. I have returned to my own world now but will miss the excitement of the world I was immersed in. Loved it!!

    "Excellent conclusion"

    This is a very dark book, be warned, but also a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and I very much enjoyed all 3 books. This series well worth the read if you like a grittier fantasy. The description of magic was also interesting and imaginative. Very solid voice acting was the icing on the cake.

    "Fantastic Read"

    This is the first time that I actually began to cry from an audiobook, the tragedie of Tyrions life hit me right in the feels.
    The series is well written and Wyndham brings the whole thing to life.

    "Possibly one of the best trilogies I've read"

    This has to be one of the best stories I've come across. There were so many elements to the characters that were believable and not once did the author break then away from their personalities. The ending was incredibly sad, but at the same time there's a sense of beauty to it. Definitely tugged at my heart.

    "Warning: Depravity Ladened"

    Michael Manning is an exceptional author as he continues to demonstrate in book 3 of this trilogy. However, the content of this book and book 2, The Silent Tempest, are so steeped in acts of degeneracy as to make it unpleasant and difficult to find much enjoyment in their telling.

    Alex Wyndham performed an excellent performance of the characters.

    In short, this is a very dark series and, even for most adult listeners, and not for the weak of heart.

    "Disappointment"
    Any additional comments?

    After really enjoying the first two books of the Betrayer's Bane series, I found Embers of Illeniel to be somewhat of a let down. The first two books were dark and horrifying, and yet still found a way to exude hope for the future. With Embers of Illeniel the author spent much of the book with the characters brooding and either giving or receiving various forms of torture.

    The savagery of the first books hold nothing in comparison to this one, as rape, child abuse, sexual abuse, incest, and brutal murder, become common themes. There is an attempt to justify these horrors with the theme of revenge and needed destruction to secure the future, but after a while you begin to believe that the ends do not justify the means, and you lose any good will towards the heroes of the story. One exception would be Brigid, who is probably the most viscous of them all, steals the story with her sadness and destructive force.

    Overall, I felt Embers of Illeniel did not hold up to the first two books of the series, though the series as a whole was worth a listen. Don't expect any happy endings or for a neat wrap-up at the ending though, as this series won't provide it. The narration of Alex Wyndham is good thought the series.

    "Beyond satisfying!"

    The ending was heartbreakingly fantastic! As is normal for the other two books I actually cried (not sobs but I got teary and upset).

    "Ruthless"

    This is one of the darkest fantasy novels I've ever read. I was devastated repeatedly. I loved it. So many lines crossed you don't know what to expect. Great pairing of reader and material.

    "A refreshing twist"

    Tired of reading stories where ever thing magically works out in the end to the point that it almost seems that the achieved goal is almost meaningless? Then listen to this series and follow a story where every gain makes your heart break as you relate to the characters, even the "bad" ones. So sit back listen and judge the characters and ask yourself what would I do? Before you know it you'll be hooked!
