But their discovery will count for nothing if they cannot reach Lamuria in time to try and stop the massive invasion force sent by Lord Zelroth, who is intent on destroying their capital and stealing the High Temple's secrets for himself. Lusam inadvertently discovers a long guarded secret of Lord Zelroth's, one that will profoundly change his own life forever and force him to take action that he may very well not be prepared for.

flat characters, boring plot and fast forward
I liked the first two, despite the constant over use of descriptors. e.g. she looked out of the cave entrace to see agents coming towards the cave entrance. soon the agents coming towards the cave entrance would reach the cave entrance. I'm not even joking, It's that bad.
there was WAY too much of this in the third one. the characters seemed incapable of doing anything without explaining it in depth like they were eight years old. no subtlety, no body language other than a shrug, a grin or a smile. too many history lessons and the characters just blather on and on and on without getting to the point until the last few comments. would be good if it had an impact on the story but 90% of the backstory is totally irelevant and without emotional connection. pointless.
narrator has an annoying tendency to sound constipated or in pain, like he's urging the words out rather than simply speaking them clearly.
on the whole I was expecting more of the same from the first two but got so sick and tired of the blather and 2d characters that I gave up half way through.
sorry to the author but if you don't trim out the pointless repetition of already stated nouns, you can't expect me to give it five stars. It ruined the experience totally.

I have some pet peeves that ruin a story for me this is one.
Lusam is hunted by multiple evil agents trying to kill him and his friends. Lusam eventually beats them but he decides to let them go!!! They are murderers and necromancers that are killing people and want to kill him! These agents have been hunting him for a long time and have information on him, his great and abnormal power, and his friends. Also he led them to a place of power for his side of the war which they also now know about.
The evil agents in even an illogical world would pass along this information possibly leading to many people dying including him and his friends and will definitely increase the amount of force the opposition hunts him with.
The amount of sheer stupidity in this single moment will stop me from reading another one of these books and baffles me how continually authors ruin books using this cliche and disgusting decision that almost always leads to death for his friends and hopefully for him too.
(p.s. other than that a good story which makes this soo much worse)
lusam continues to whine about killing people who are trying to kill him and made a decision to not take a ship ride because it would endanger the crew even though knowing that hundreds of people will die because he wants to walk and possibly lose the war. Why authors continously use this personality I will never understand just stop writng books. So you stop wasting my money.

Disappointing to say the least
Another terrible audiobook
Bad luck if you bought this it’s so bad you can’t even pretend to listen.
