I may be an oldie, but goodie - approaching 70, but young in heart - but I am a great fan.
Run of the mill story, very short and the narrator should not be doing a fake posh accent for Roan, it's sounds horrendous.
I liked this series. I completed the five books currently on Audible in about 4, or 5 days. There has to be more volumes coming out, because of all of the loose ends, and because of how the last book ended. The novels have a steady pace until book 3, when the pace really increases. The thing I like the most about the series was the unique approach to an Elemental Magic System. The thing I disliked the most about the series is that the books are too short, and had to have been the minimum word count to fit the definition of a novel, and not a short story. Btw...the last 30 minutes of each novel is the first 30 minutes of the next book. The narrator did a great job, although he talks fast, and every now and then I had to go back a minute, or more to catch what he said. There is also a love story in the series, but it isn't gushy and there are only a few stolen kisses in it, which is a plus for me. Overall, even with my few complaints, I give the series and the narator 4 Stars overall.
The reading order for the series is:
Chased by Fire
Bound by Fire
Changed by Fire
Fortress of Fire
Forged in Fire

Loved the world and the characters but I kept getting distracted by the authors lack of an extensive vocabulary. I felt like I was reading a book written by a 12 or 13 year old. If the author learns to not use the same words over and over again to describe something, often in the same sentance, he/she would go far in the realm of sci-fi fantasy writing. Can't bring myself to buy the next book because of this reason.
