Publisher's Summary

The Legion of Flame is the action-packed second audiobook in the Draconis Memoria series - an enthralling epic fantasy of magic, adventure and the furious battle to forge an empire.
Claydon Torcreek has survived drake-infested jungles, hostile tribes and the cold touch of betrayal - yet his troubles have only just begun.
The legendary white drake - believed to be nothing more than a myth - has awoken from its long slumber, with a thirst to reduce the world of men to ashes. One city has already fallen to the drake's formidable legions.
More will follow unless Clay can uncover an ancient secret that lies buried beneath the southern ice. Once again Clay must face unthinkable danger, and this time he carries not just the hopes of his own nation but the fate of the entire world.

Great book, terrible narrator

A really great novel as expected with Anthony Ryan; however, narrator can't pronounce simple words right which is really aggregating. Bring back Steven Brand.

What a ride! A page-turner.

The series just gets better and better!

Anthony Ryan wows again with a graceful storytelling, exciting adventures and likeable characters, who stand up against the world of drakes. This book is so fast-paced, it will keep you awake at nights until you absorb it all.

As the story progresses the magic system grows and a new established world full of history, intrigue and politics opens up even further, and invites heroes to discover the unknown. There are so many side stories, it's great!

If you think that this is another book about dragons, well... it is, but the author breathes a fresh breath of air to the genre and introduces new twists to the dragons and their world. Their importance to the human race and magic really stands out, I shall say no more so as not to spoil the plot.

It is difficult to compare the style of these books to the other acclaimed fantasy writers, as the book has a Branderson-sequel magic system, George Martin's feeling of discovery, Joe Abercrombie's strong characters and its own well-crafted plot with Ryan's chapter structure and tension build up. Despite throwing it all into one book, it works fantastically and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Steve West does a fair job performing this book and it is a big improvement from the previous narrator. He is trying to give characters a unique personality and voice, however is it believable? I'm not convinced... though I have enjoyed this book a lot.
