Summary

When Mallon the Undying threatened the land years ago, the elves stopped him - and then disappeared.

Now Mallon's followers seek to bring him back to finish what he started. 

Only the Keepers - storytellers, historians, and magic-wielders - are left to stand against them.

Alaric, who betrayed everything he believed to save his wife - and still failed.

Will, a storyteller who’s convinced his weak magic makes him useless. 

And Sini, a former slave girl with unimaginable power but no way to wield it. 

Can they survive being hunted by dragons, attacked by frost goblins, and betrayed by traitors in their midst? 

Or will Mallon's minions overwhelm them and plunge the land into darkness? 

Fans of Patrick Rothfuss, David Eddings, and Terry Brooks will love this engaging trilogy. Dive into this enchanting epic fantasy series fans call "heart-pounding, emotional, and very satisfying".

Serendipity!

I listen to A LOT of fantasy, with my favourites being the mind blowing Joe Abercrombie but also Brandon Sanderson and M. J. Sullivan among others,
Having finished a relisten to them all, I was desperately searching for something new and came across this because I knew and liked the narrator. I took a chance and I am so glad I did. This is not my usual preferred grim dark but it is extremly enjoyable. Though it isn’t innovative as such, it does feel fresh and well imagined. I liked the main characters and, as the previous reviewer mentioned, how well each books moves on yet interweaves their storylines. I am going to buy this on hardcopy, I liked it that much.

Epic saga

I admit that I bought this book because it was good value, 3 books for 1 credit is not to be sniffed at. I intended to listen to the first part and then skip to something different and maybe come back to it later. I was so enthralled by the first story I blitzed all 3 in one go. Each book is a story on its own, no padding to make it a series, just well crafted stories that are entertaining from beginning to end. I will be looking for more books from j a Andrews in the future. Narrator is very good too, keeping you interested in the story all the way through.

Good value

I struggled to finish book 1. Book 2 and 3 were more enjoyable. The narrator was excellent.

Enjoyable listen

3 books in 1, in a sale and a narrator I favoured I had to take the plunge.
Enjoyable book. Not over complicated and a good ending. (I’ll admit A little in love with Will) sad I know. But recommend.

Fully enjoyed

A great story so I thought I should give it a review. The story can be a little predictable in places, but the characters are good and it's thoroughly enjoyable. Totally worth it.

very enjoyable

I don't often write reviews but as a connoisseur of fantasy I enjoy a book that can bring me in and keep me in, and this book definitely did that I did not put it down once. so if you want something that is easy to listen to I would highly suggest this book.

Magical saga at its finest.

Fantastic story, great character depth and build up. action that pulls you in to keep you listening. Hats off to Tim G Reynolds for another stupendous performance. To all involved, thanks you for your effort.

Fresh air in a genre full of stuffy tropes

Great tale, loved the progression of the series as you start with one protagonist and transition between new ones but never have to leave your old friends along the way.

it has arrived!

I've been waiting for this to hit audible and I don't think I've ever spent an audible credit so quickly. For those who have read some of the books the chapters break down like this:
Book 2 starts at chapter 59
Book 3 starts at chapter 112

TGR does an amazing job, as always, and I actually slowed down my listening time from 1.5x to enjoy it more.

And here's my original ebook review for reference...

I love this series so much... Don't wait! Get it now!
I would consider myself an old school fantasy lover and spent much of my youth reading Tolkien, McKiernan, McCaffrey, Tad Williams and pretty much anyone else I could get my hands on. Recently I have dove into indie fantasy and let me tell you, JA Andrews is leaps and bounds ahead of the field, her story telling is phenomenal and you can't help but get sucked in and feel fully immersed while reading. Once you hit that 30% point of each book you can't help but get swept up in the story, you have to pick up the book every free minute you have until you finish it.

Getting a little fatigued by all the grimdark books? Looking for something to rekindle that same passion you had as a kid the first time you read about dragons? This is it, this is the story. She will make you laugh, she will make you cheer, she will make you send her messages about how your wife asks what's going on in the story because you are crying into your coffee mug while reading!

Her side story (and bonus story) fit in so well with the main trilogy that I have tremendously high hopes for future novels.

Loved the series

I have to admit that I am becoming harder to please as I grow older (and wiser). I find myself giving up on a series if it can't keep my attention within the first few hours. This trilogy was a refreshing change & I loved the way it focused on each character separately. The narrator always does a fantastic job so no surprise there. Now I need to see what else JA Andrews has up her sleeves. Great job. Highly recommend.

Don’t invest your time in this story with a bogus ending!!. . . 😱

Starts out interestingly and the unfortunately the plot twist and character breakdown at the end make you say, “Oh dear Lord! Did I just spend all this time following all these characters and sub stories to have the author crap out with an unbelievable and totally out of character action by the chief villain of the last book?” So ridiculous by the author it makes me mad! What, were you late to your publishing date? Or just tired of the whole thing yourself and just pulled enough plot threads together to make a doschdveled bow for your “ present” of a book? . . . 😱
————————————————————————————————————————
5 stars is great (I rarely give this rating).
4 stars is good (given only to interesting and well-written books).
3 stars is OK (the usual listen I encounter on Audible).
2 stars is poor (and not worth the credit or the listen).
1 star is awful (and to be diss'ed and shunned and spread as thus through out the Audible Universe)!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 😱

exceptional

I love a good fantasy but I usually end up sending a good percentage back cause the characters are simplistic, the plots are too predictable, or it is one similar battle after another. This one kept me totally engaged. Thank you

SNOOZE FEST OF A BOOK

I had high hopes for this book. very disappointing. this book was a snooze fest of absolutely nothing. no action just a lot of dialog about random nothingness. when there was action which was hardly ever it was either very brief or extremely boring. I could skip chapters and still know what was going on. I did skip the last several chapters till the last two and missed nothing and still had an idea of the story line. ending was typical everyone lives happily ever after. I do not recommend this book unless you like slow boring books. the only good thing is the narrator. love some TGR.

Excellent Story

I enjoyed the three stories very much. TGR's performance is top notch. The characters are well developed, and the story is creative and interesting enough. The trilogy has a very satisfying ending, which is is sometimes under appreciated. Putting the three books together like this makes this so much more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

A True gem of a trilogy - memorable and bright

The characters are extraordinarily well developed. Plenty of twists and turns keeping the listener engaged. Hope amidst chaos. A worthy contribution to epic fantasy. Thank you JA Andrews.

Great escape!

I am so happy to have discovered JA Andrews! These books got increasingly rich in character, and always carried hope and goodness as a core reality. I love the diversity in the development of the elves and dwarves. The sword lore was a bit confusing, and I wish more time was spent with the final revelations, but I am eager to jump into Andrews’ next work!
