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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Much too neat an ending"

    Not bad, but battle scenes over long. The last book was disappointing with a rather predictable end.

    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.

    "Everything I've come to expect from a fantasy saga"

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

    "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.

    The Evermen series full of complex but understandable characters. Vocal performance is excellent. 'EM' should be on the big screen.

    "An OK story.."

    I stayed with the series because I was curious enough that I wanted to know what happened with the characters, but this just never struck me as a brilliant story. Yes, there was plenty of action, but I guess that I'm just not that into reading about battle after battle. I prefer deeper connection with the characters, and IMHO, none of them really leapt off the pages.

    The magic system also seemed all over the place, on the one hand Ella and others use"Essence" to make and power technologically advanced inventions; on the other hand the enchanters resort to wand magic (powered by essence - but it still felt like a forced connection between arcane magic and advanced technology). Between the contraptions, the undead, the necromancers, the wands, and the superhuman beings, it just seemed like this story has everything thrown in but the kitchen sink. The first books had promise, but I'm not a fan of how the story became cluttered with the above mentioned things by the end of the series.

    Overall, somewhat entertaining, but not a story that will stick with me, nor one that I would want to read again - and to me, those things are essential to a great story.

    "An excellent end to a wonderful series"

    This has been one of my favorite series ever. This, the last in the saga, was filled with action and adventure. It also tied up all the loose ends from the other three books. I am happy to be completed with the series because I now have the whole story; but I'm sad that there isn't another one to roll into. James Maxwell is an amazing author and Simon Vance always brings the story to life. I have read all of James Maxwell's publications, I just hope the next installment of the Shifting Tides series comes out soon.
