Summary

Despite the efforts of several of the fatemarked, turmoil and violence continue to plague the Four Kingdoms.

To the north, Annise Gäric ventures into the Hinterlands to discover the truth of the Sleeping Knights, who may be the only hope for her kingdom. Meanwhile, Tarin Sheary travels to Darrin in a desperate bid to repel the eastern forces amassing at Crow's Nest. Unbeknownst to either of them, a new threat rises in Blackstone.

In the west, Rhea Loren seeks to ransom her prisoners, Gareth Ironclad and Gwendolyn Storm, which will bring her one step closer to her goal of controlling the fatemarked. Relying on her ability to summon the ancient sea creature, Wrathos, she seeks to unify her people while persuading them that the child growing inside her was placed there directly by Wrath.

With his fatemarked sister in tow, Grey Arris sails toward Pirate's Peril in search of the truth about Shae's marking and the cause of her recurring dream of a pirate.

In the southern empire of Phanes, a slave rebellion is brewing, with Jai Jiroux and Shanti Parthena Laude at its core. But the Hoza brothers will not relinquish their power without a fight.

Finally, in Calyp, Raven Sandes' dragonia are growing, and she must decide whether to use them against the east, who continue to attack her desert borders. Simultaneously, Roan Loren shows up at her palace with an offer she cannot refuse, as he strives to learn the truth of the Western Oracle's prophecies and the origins of the fatemarked.

As always, Bane is lurking in the shadows with his new partner, Chavos the plaguemarked, plotting how to destroy those who would stand in the path of peace.

Still very good

Really enjoyed book three, but I think some of book two was missing, as things had happened between books that i didn't know about.

Still - brilliant

This is page by page adventure and surprises - Thank you David for writing such an amazing story which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The concept is strong
The character development is strong - e.g. you find yourself liking characters that you shouldn't
The narration is really good - Derek does a good job at a female voice and making it credible
You look and think 24 hours wow that's long, but it's so good it feels like 5 minutes! He also gives you back stories at the end which give you further insight into the characters (he could have done these as flashbacks just as well)
never mind the book LOVED THIS SERIES

1 & 2 are better but this one is still good.

Gwen is a great character I wish that the author would have done a better job with the Roan character who comes across as being wimpy and whiny and yet has both males and females falling madly in love with him. I guess it's the authors way of being PC. Love the Annise character, a good balance of strong, compassionate, insecure, intelligent and loving. Rhea is just mental . . . enough said. I would have liked to have heard more of Raven and Grey, both started off as interesting characters but have been unimpressive as of late. The author has decided to make Roan the hero of the series which is too bad since he's the one character that does nothing for me.

Estes and Perkins= Dynamic Duo!

Mr. David and Mr. Derek continues to deliver an amazingly complex and strong storyline. How each character interacts and interrelates continues to impress the readers and Audible listeners! Ready for the next book!

Millennial era nonsense

It was like listening to a 7th grade orchestra. No expertise, at all, In story telling. A pair of kings who were actually queens. And obese princess become Queen. No one more adult than a 12 year old. All childish guilt and foolish secrets. I hoped this was a trilogy so I would be done. I was expecting some cross-dressers to appear.(glad they didn't) Won't listen any further.
