Summary

Tremaine Valiarde and a small, brave band of heroes ventured into a wondrous new realm on their desperate mission to save Ile-Rien from the conquering Gardier. Now, as a relentless enemy creates chaos and destruction - with the fate of the magical city of Lodun hanging in the balance - the last hope of a land besieged may rest on the far side of a secret portal.

But the doorway leads to a mysterious ruin hidden behind the awesome Gate of Gods - and to perils that dwarf anything Tremaine and her allies could have possibly imagined...

Critic reviews

"Wells shows us some very convincing characters in a desperate situation: attacked without warning, their usual weapons made ineffective, and with allies sometimes as strange as their enemies." ( Booklist)

Terrible narrator

This narrator had such an irritatingly bizarre manner of speaking that I cannot pay attention to the story and have to give up on it.

She has an oddly robotic over-precise stilted way of reading, yet she doesn’t pronounce contractions properly (din’t, couln’t...). If I ever see her name again on an audible book I will avoid that book.

It comes together.

A wonderful adventure. I was disappointed in the lack of growth by Tremaine and Florian. I keep wondering about Tremaine’s personal journey through the previous 2 books and how in the third book I felt like a completion, but not a forward step for Tremaine. Maybe it’s because it was the end.
Unfortunately it’s hard to be sure about any of the story feelings because the performance altered my interpretation of everything. Sloppy work in character switching leave us with moments where tremaine’s voice starts a sentence and Gerard’s voice ends it, after Talmadge realized which character was speaking. The narration tone is slightly monotonous, which isn’t bad, but the words that are made important in sentences don’t help you understand what’s being conveyed. The words are said clearly and understandably, so if you listen carefully you can rework the sentences in your mind as the story goes. Solid pacing and tempo.
