Summary

The story of the first Illeniel wizard continues.

Tyrion's life among the She'Har had become quiet, but the sins of his youth have returned to haunt him. The Mordan wardens have discovered one of his children, and the other groves are racing to find and claim the rest of his illegitimate offspring. Unable to stand by and watch as his children are used as pawns against one another, Tyrion makes a hard choice, one that will set him against everyone and everything he cares for. Others' love made his children strong, but his hate will make them powerful.

A disappointing sequel

This book fell into the classic trap of sequel disease. It felt as if the author, having given so much to the first book, struggled to maintain the same (high) quality. There were too many contrived situations, too much gratuitous language and scenes which lent nothing really to the story, and too much wilful blindness from a lead character we had been led to believe was so talented, highly intelligent and had been through so much. The contradiction was stark.

Whilst I enjoyed much of what was on offer, I felt this effort lacked the strength, depth and "natural flow" of the first book in the series.

who does not love a bad guy

What made the experience of listening to The Silent Tempest the most enjoyable?

i loved the idea that he falls into the anti hero charecter, you follow his path and think i could have done that, not thinking of the consequences

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Tempest?

the matter of fact moment when the main character is called a rapist and he has to face up to what he has done, and that what he thought was harmless fun was much darker

Which scene did you most enjoy?

i wish i could easily narrow it down to one

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when he wants to help his daughter, but all he can do to help her is make her harder and more vicious

Becoming one of my favourite authors

Any additional comments?

I love this series of books, and the narrator does a fantastic job. My own complaint is that these books just aren't long enough, I love them so much I just don't want them to end.

dark, tragic, but very good.

the story is full of conflict start to finish and can be a serious jumble of feelings. one criticism would be that the dialog is rather abrupt leaving out much of the natural flow you see in thought and speech as though facts are being presented without the experience. good action with detailed imagery in a good way.

It's okay 😉

I like Manning's books. It never fails I always loose track of the time when I'm reading his books. 😀 This book was just a bit slow for my taste. Hopefully his next one speed up....lol Keep up the good work Michael....you print it and I'll roll it up and smoke it. 😈 hehe jk

Even Better Than the First

I usually only listen to the audio books while driving, however, I ended up listening on my Kindle at other times just so I could hear what happens next. The narrator is AMAZING! Character's voices, inflections, cadences, etc. are far more than distinct, giving the feel of separate narrators for each character. Unbelievable!

Consuming

If you could sum up The Silent Tempest in three words, what would they be?

Heart-wrenching, gripping, encapsulating

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Tempest?

Being that this is the second book, watching Daniel evolve as a character, and also seeing the secrets unfold is gripping.

What about Alex Wyndham’s performance did you like?

I think he does a very good job, he stops, pauses, and waits in the perfect moments, he does a good job at changing his voice for each character, as much as man can for a woman's voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt an extreme amount of despair that controlled me at different points. It never affected my mood per se, as in I was never mean or angry at anyone or something extreme, but I was more quiet a reflective as the story took a grip on my thoughts and mind.

Darkly Entertaining

I typically don’t read books about mages, but thought I would give this one a try. I am so glad that I did. I immediately became intrigued and found it delightfully dark. My heart went out to Daniel the main character. The circumstances surrounding his dive into darkness are heart wrenching. I definitely recommend this audiobook. Alex Wyndham executed the narration perfectly and I am on to Listen to the next in the series.
