Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in the Evermen Saga.

The Lord of the Night is coming. The future of civilization is at stake.

Miro, high lord of Altura, is in the Imperial capital to prepare the Empire for the onslaught. He knows his homeland lies directly in the enemy's path but struggles to form the alliances he needs.

As the high lords bicker, Ella seeks the help of the newly crowned emperor, Killian. But, amid the growing tensions, their responsibilities drive them apart and, as emperor, Killian can't be seen to favor Ella's homeland.

Against a backdrop of old hurts, guilty secrets, and shaky new allegiances, people of all nations and abilities must learn to trust one another again, and form a united front against a powerful enemy intent on destroying them once and for all.

    "Enjoyable"

    I got the first book in this series on a daily deal and promptly had to get the following three. Since starting Audible listening to crime thrillers the daily deals have given me the taste of medieval fantasy. Good action good story line and great narration. Recommend.

    Story
    "Not completely to my taste"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I see adventure books as a guilty pleasure of mine, and a certain amount of cheesiness is to be expected, but Jesus H. Christ!
    I honestly seldom get anything at all out of love stories, so this is a matter of taste and level of tolerance, as ever.
    But for me, I thought the love story in this particular work spoilt a good part of the enjoyment. It just nagged at me for some reason.


    Would you recommend The Lore of the Evermen to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I would not tell anyone not to read it, but I would not recommend it either.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favourite?

    This is a STUPID question for a book review!
    How will anyone be able to decide whether or not to read this book by reading my answer to this totally off topic question?

    I think Simon Vance is a great narrator, and I never hesitate to buy a book I'm interested in if he happens to be the narrator.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Also a stupid question for a book review!
    How will anyone be able to decide whether or not to read this book by reading my answer to this totally off topic question?


    Any additional comments?

    I found the last two books in the series to be most... disturbingly cheesy. Not the whole books, but they have significant chunks of it.
    The story was entertaining, so I will not count it a loss of my time. Like I said, I think the love stories were in my view annoying and pointless, and they might have spoilt a fair part of the story for me.

    "Fantastic end to the series."

    This series certainly takes you on a journey. You learn to love the characters and hope throughout their story that they succeed. This books triggers every emotion and it doesn’t disappoint.
    A thrilling end - battles, love, death, joy and heartache! An exhausting but brilliant conclusion!

    "What a mirror, reflecting the human natures..."

    It's rather striking: when the common enemy of the human race is approaching, whose aim is to wipe out the whole human race, there are human beings BUSY plotting against their fellow men... This is far the best book of the whole series, I think.

    "Excellent finale"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the tale from start to finish and took as few breaks as possible to make it a seamless listen. The 'good' characters were likeable and the 'bad' ones were appropriately despicable with a good balance between war, intrigue and love.

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyable but a little too convenient"

    I've now finished listening to this series and I enjoyed the entire thing. Simon Vance, as always, makes this book come alive and choosing him as a reader saved it, because the story itself sort of falls together too easily -- too many last minute saves, narrow escapes, etc. etc. The term dues ex machina definitely comes to mind.

    So, I would unhesitatingly suggest this as an enjoyable tale, but at same time, warn people that they shouldn't expect anything deep or terribly moving from the text itself. This is a real shame because some of the premises, like the nature of gods, are very interesting and could have been the subject of much deeper inquiry. As it is, it is a fun and enjoyable bit of fluff, great for whiling the miles away, and certainly not a source of frustration. But do realize, it is Simon Vance's skill as a reader, that saves this book from being entirely skippable.

    ... and that's saying something for a 4 book saga. Interesting characters, court intrigue, diabolical villains, apocalyptic battles, star-crossed lovers and superb narration.

    "Battle scenes I could picture!!!"

    I love this series overall. Lots of twists and turns villains and heroes magic and tech! However I’m usually bored and distracted when it comes to long battle chapters. But not in this book! Even more than the others in the series I was easily able to visualize the huge battle scenes! I closed my eyes and felt like I was part of the fight! I laughed when the characters joked together and cheered when they fought the villains!

    "Fun, but predictable."

    The ending even seemed a bit abrupt, but, nonetheless, I did enjoy it. when everyone is killed off with several chapters remaining, the shock factor is pretty low when they all live happily ever after.
