Publisher's Summary

The saga of the Imager Quaeryt, commander in the forces of Lord Bhayar, reaches a new climax as the great struggle to unify the continent of Lydar enters its final phase. Only the land of Khel remains uncommitted to Bhayar's rule.
Their decision could mean a lasting peace, or more conflict across an already war-ravaged realm. While the conqueror of Bovaria awaits emissaries to arrive with news of Khel's decision, other weighty matters occupy Bhayar, his sister Velora, and her husband Quaeryt-not the least of which is the fulfillment of Quaeryt's dream to create the world's first Imager academy, where the magical abilities of these powerful casters may be honed, managed, and put to the service of the common good.
But before that dream may be realized, or Khel's fateful choice made known, the spectre of high treason threatens to unravel all that Quaeryt has achieved, catapulting him toward a fateful confrontation with Bhayar's most powerful military leaders.

Not quite as good as predecessors

Would you listen to Rex Regis again? Why?

I found the Imager series captivating in concept and the narrator really brings the characters to life (for me at least). This episode draws the threads of the Imager series together well but I hope does not mark the end of the series.


What did you like best about this story?

After a slow start it got into its stride (matching the earlier book) and neatly gave a background to the society that was introduced to us in the first three books of the series.


Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Excellent


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I downloaded it on the day it was released, that should say it all.


Any additional comments?

I personally found this eagerly awaited addition to the series rather too slow and ponderous to get going. It wasn't until the second part of the download that the story really started to provide the same attraction as the earlier books. That is not to say that if there are other books in the series that I won't be at the front of the queue.
