The time has come when the people of Lumnia must unite or be doomed to fall. Ancient foes must become trusted friends if they are to endure. But The Eternal Emperor Shinzan has weapons that have yet to be unleashed. And he will not allow the challenge to his power to go unanswered.
Ethan must now seek out the meaning of the prophecy that has guided his fate. With Kat at his side, they walk fearlessly into the unknown. But ghosts from the past return to haunt them. And their love and devotion will be tested to the very limits of endurance.

"Sexy scenes slow the momentum"
Expert narration surpasses the content. Third book in series, and yet the plot still feels like it's finding its way, under development. Unpolished writing style. Too many sexy scenes and conversations — they're cheesy and uninspired. Plus, they detract from the pace and the plot. Dialogue is littered with F-bombs. Characters are sometimes criminally stupid or revoltingly evil.
Across the three books, characters "couldn't help laughing" or "couldn't help looking" or "couldn't help thinking," etc. I suppose this might be how the author talks. His own speech patterns bleed into his characters too much. Thus, I cannot immerse myself into this fantasy world.
it's just ok. could do without the suggestive launguage. I get it... his manhood bulges. I dont need to hear it over and over. felt like i was reading 50 shades of grey..plus it's hard to tell just how old the characters are. I really liked the godling chronicles by this author, but this is so so.
"Enough of the horrible sex description."
The cheezy and unfitting description of lust and play. Its unecceseary, and unwanted. Exept for that I quite enjoyed the book.
"Story ruined by plot holes and "almost" sex scenes"
Someone who wants to read more of a teenage romance novel more than a good fantasy novel.
No, just from this author.
The performances of all the characters were done well. The writing was the problem.
The story was riddled with plot holes, vulgarity, and almost sex scenes. The author spent more time describing how the main character felt every time he was around the girl he likes more than he does describing the major battle scenes of the book. Got tired of hearing how his manhood swelled or other romance novel like euphemisms, and how that is the one of the primary drives for the conflict in the book. Then when the author does find a plot hole he tries to cover it up rather than really address it, like, oh I should have thought to communicate with the supremely powerful mage inside of me before going into battle. The books started out with really good potential but got progressively worse for me. I won't be continuing the series and don't really care what happens to the characters, and that is rare for me in a book.
"Great addition to the series!"
I like the overall layout of the story Brian is telling as well as the way he leads you through the adventure. I also like the breaks he takes between the characters paths and I feel they are better placed than in other books instead of just in the middle of something intense like other books he leads it to a good breaking point so it isn't leaving you frustrated.
I don't like how Ethan is helpless. He's giving far too much control to his spiritual ancestor which is making it frustrating but that's part of the story and hopefully this internal battle gains some traction moving forward.
Final note, please use other words than recounted for when a character is recalling a part of their adventure.
Was expecting this to wrap up the story and it dragged it out to yet another book
makes you want to go immediately to book 4. I wave to really enjoyed the series.
"Good trilogy using many ripped off ideas."
Several ripped off ideas where very obvious. No real unique ideas. Still a good listen. Oh wait still going on... hack writers these days write too much fluff without progressing their stories. yay more books to come.
I have read some of the reviews about this book being to sexually graphic.
Not so, I thought the storyline was great and only made me want to read more!
Another great job by Brian D. Anderson
"Better than the first 2"
This was by far the best of the series so far. Much less "teenage angst", more sophisticated plot turns, and broader, more globally oriented action encompassing all the characters while still maintaining individual's involvement and personal stories (rather then the whole dialogue being about personal issues with little interconnection with big picture as in the first two books.
I didn't realise that this was just a part of the story and not the whole thing. Still enjoyed it
"Gets better and better"
Each book in this series just seams to get better and better. I can't wait for book 4 to be released. Another great narration. If you are reading this review then make sure you start at book 1 and get ready for a good series.
