Publisher's Summary

The final audiobook of the Sovereign of the Seven Isles begins in the mountains of Andalia with Alexander - wounded, surrounded and fleeing for his life. Isabel learns that Phane can use her link with the darkness for his own, terrible ends. And Abigail rallies the Coven to face the Sin’Rath, a threat now magnified a hundred fold. Battle rages across the Seven Isles, and Alexander Reishi stands at the center of it all. As forces converge on the Nether Gate, he departs on a desperate quest to free Isabel, kill Phane and banish the Shades for all time.

    "Satisfying finale"

    I love the characters and was satisfied with the ending. Struggled a bit with all the fighting and killing.

    "Ending wasn't as climatic as I would have liked"

    The ending missed a final word from Phane and no word from the other Sovereigns. Also his powers were never fully realised.
    Other than that it was great narrator was awesome no issues there.

    Story
    "Not great, but better than many."

    Loads of sidetracking in this series and too little focus on the main plotline for quite a few books. This story ends here though, and thank you for finally getting there Mr. Wells.

    Could have been so much more done with the power of the main character. He seems to make the strangest mistakes at times, and always ends up having to go though a few more chapters before getting back on track.

    As the numbers of books increase, so does the number og characters to follow, most of them turning 2 dimentional after a few chapters. There are really only three deep characters in this story, and it could have been finished within a trilogy.

    Read in between the releases of better series, or better yet... don't waste a credit better spent elsewhere.

    Runs fine at 1.5x speed on my Samsung S5 without distortion.

    Good narrator is a plus.

    "Good but"

    So I started story a year ago I like the first three books. it should end at three because of the book 7-ish was just a hassle to get this last book because it was just such a long story of the same characters never having a conflict of interest and the black and white nature of all the characters.

    Story
    "Jumbled, too much for an 1 Audio Book"

    This is an OK book, but it was an Audio Book Pre-order. The chapters change viewpoint with no warning. The end is a massive car wreck pile-up. After two attempts at the last 45 minutes of the book, I decided I just didn't care. This should have been two books. The chapters should have descriptive names for the Narrator and listener to help with orientation. As a Printed book this review really would not apply. I bought it before it was published and so I feel it needs an Audio Book Review. No more then 3 stars as an audio book, and that is being generous. Derek Perkins is a great narrator. He read what he had in front of him and there were errors for him to read. RUSH to publication is my guess. I would buy another volume, even if the first 1/4 of it were to be the last 1/4 of this book. The challenge of Heroic Epic Fiction, in many people's opinions including my own, includes the transformation of the Protagonist(s) when the epic quest is done. Coming of Age stories end in... can you guess? Coming of Age. The young protagonist(s) grow up, usually too fast, and become adults without much guidance, or the guidance of a Mentor who usually gets killed somewhere along the line and is not there in the end. (That is a formula, I use it as an example, nobody likes a book where the Mentor is a Gandalf clone...... there are way too many of those.) This book fails to do a good job of ending a story, and tries to do too much too quickly at the end. I did not finish the story, I've got about 30 minutes left to go, and no longer care what happens. It may only be me, and I'll give it another try if, and only if, these characters or this setting continue. Bad Editing, and a rush to publication are what I hear.... I have no way to say if that is actually the case. The writing here is good but it could be better, the talent is there. All the other novels are enjoyable. This one is enjoyable until near the end when I simply could no longer suspend my disbelief and lost interest. My other objection is the use of "Huh." Fictional Dialect was not established, so it just got really predictable and irritating. When Multiple characters began to say it, I found this unnecessary and distracting. It made me wonder, "Huh?' Many readers will probably be fine with this novel. I can't give the story more then 2 stars.

    "Overall a good read and series"

    Overall I'd give the series a thumbs up.

    Cons:

    The characters felt a bit too straightforward at times- the good were "ultra good" and the bad were evil in the extreme (with a few exceptions). That's refreshing in some ways and a bit predictable at other times. The unadulterated nature of the hero of the story was a bit hard to relate to, he was just so darn pure of heart. At it's core, it's a story of light vs. dark, so I guess the characters reflect that, and It's hard to slam the story too much for that, since I knew that was the case going in and it's what I wanted.

    The only real complaint I have (the above is really just an observation) is how quickly the storyline wrapped up at the end. The author took so long describing each and every trial the heroes overcame throughout the entire series in hyper detail, that I wanted the same level of explanation of what happened after the story arc climax. Instead we got a 15 minutes grand overview and hints and snippets. The author obviously took great delight in painstakingly crafting horrible and awful scenes for the characters to walk through and overcome, only to wrap things up way too quickly to feel really satisfied at the end, though it wasn't completely dropped.

    I could have done with less detail about the plants in the jungle and hearing about the same emotions time and time again as the characters walked through similar situations and reacted the same. I got to where I would roll my eyes every time I heard the phrase "thrill of fear"- (that would make a good drinking game for listening to this book!)

    Pros:

    I do like the overall storyline. The use of magic in the story was well conceived and thought out, and the creativity of the realm was very immersive. The author described each scene with detail sufficient to picture exactly what was going on. I was also able to connect with the characters sufficiently (despite my above comment) to feel invested in them and care when they suffered or triumphed. The reading was very well done (as most audible authors seem to be) and the range of voices helped identify and the performance added to the story immensely.

    "Slow start. Epic ending!"

    This series stated off sounding like it was woven from the cloth of a combination of several other great fantasy epics. However, the plot turns and the magic evolve thru the six books into an impressively unique story that captured my imagination and endeared me to the characters.

    Looking forward to reading more from David Wells. Oh, and I can't forget to praise Derek Perkins narration! He does a really wonderful job voicing all of the hero's and villains. I've enjoyed a number of books that he narrated.i found this series by searching specifically for books that he narrated!

    "Did the author get tired?"

    It felt like the author had a couple of key phrases he kept repeating in the book over and over and over again. The storyline was really good but I just was annoyed by the end of the book because I felt like I kept hearing a lot of the same key phrases. I mean it's really gone on through the entire series but it just got tire some really tiresome by the end of this book.

    "Absolutely Superb"

    An epic finish to an epic story. From the first book Wells captured me. Spinning a tale of Love and hate, of light and dark, of honor and betrayal, and of life and death (with a constant tale of magic and creatures of myth) All the threads neatly tied off. I was gutted to finish and hope that a new series continuing the Reishi story will emerge!!! All in all a great series! Will definitely be listening to again. Forgot to mention a thanks to the awesome Derek Perkins who's voice and pacing brought the characters to life.

    "Climactic Ending"

    From the first chapter of the first book to the last word of the epilogue I have enjoyed every minute of this epic saga. I have been angered and amused. I have felt joy and sadness. They were neither too deep or too shallow. The balance made the story flow. I have enjoyed this series of books immensely.
