Publisher's Summary

The story of the first Illeniel wizard continues.

Tyrion's life among the She'Har had become quiet, but the sins of his youth have returned to haunt him. The Mordan wardens have discovered one of his children, and the other groves are racing to find and claim the rest of his illegitimate offspring. Unable to stand by and watch as his children are used as pawns against one another, Tyrion makes a hard choice, one that will set him against everyone and everything he cares for. Others' love made his children strong, but his hate will make them powerful.

    Story
    "dark, tragic, but very good."

    the story is full of conflict start to finish and can be a serious jumble of feelings. one criticism would be that the dialog is rather abrupt leaving out much of the natural flow you see in thought and speech as though facts are being presented without the experience. good action with detailed imagery in a good way.

    "It's okay 😉"

    I like Manning's books. It never fails I always loose track of the time when I'm reading his books. 😀 This book was just a bit slow for my taste. Hopefully his next one speed up....lol Keep up the good work Michael....you print it and I'll roll it up and smoke it. 😈 hehe jk

    "No letdown for middle book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Silent Tempest to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print version.


    What other book might you compare The Silent Tempest to and why?

    This series is pretty original in it's setting. Maybe Circle Of Reign by Jacob Cooper with it's magical trees.


    What about Alex Wyndham’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Wyndam's performance was solid. I really enjoyed it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    The Silent Tempest continues the pace of the first book. I didn't want to stop listening.

    "Spellbinding"

    This and book one are works of art. I couldn't put them down. Some of the best writing I've read in awhile. So much better than the first series, which I also liked. The narrator was a perfect match with the story.

    "Great listen. Can't wait for the others to follow"
    What made the experience of listening to The Silent Tempest the most enjoyable?

    Really good plot continues to provide action with great diolog


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No spoilers get it worth the listen I promise


    Which character – as performed by Alex Wyndham – was your favorite?

    Great job for all. Rememberof the narrator makes at least 75% of any book you listen to. Take the time to listen to the narrator always. Alex is perfect for this series. I never get tired of listening to him.


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

    Stayed up all night listening to both books


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see what come next in the series. Enjoy...

    Story
    "I almost didn't listen to this one."

    The first book in this prequel was as disturbing as the author's preface had warned, and although I was unable to put it down, I wasn't certain that I wanted to continue down that road.

    Manning's characters are so vivid, and Alex Wyndham's narration is so rich that I decided that I had to risk it; I didn't want to miss anything that would help enrich the Mageborn series when I move on to it. (Which I will!!)

    So no spoilers here... I will only say that I am very glad that I took the risk. The book is excellent, and aside from just a little sleep I listened straight through!

    "simply amazing!"

    This book went by far too quickly. That would be my only complaint. The narrator did an amazing job bringing the book to life. The book remains fairly unpredictable and exciting. I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in high fantasy. It should be noted that this series has material that leans towards a more mature audience. However it is very subtle in its application and can be palatable for a younger audience as well. I eagerly await book 3.

    "Excellent!!!"

    This is an awesome series to get into. The darkness the main character must go through is wonderfully different than any other book I have read. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next installment.

    Story
    "A disappointing sequel"

    This book fell into the classic trap of sequel disease. It felt as if the author, having given so much to the first book, struggled to maintain the same (high) quality. There were too many contrived situations, too much gratuitous language and scenes which lent nothing really to the story, and too much wilful blindness from a lead character we had been led to believe was so talented, highly intelligent and had been through so much. The contradiction was stark.

    Whilst I enjoyed much of what was on offer, I felt this effort lacked the strength, depth and "natural flow" of the first book in the series.

    "who does not love a bad guy"
    What made the experience of listening to The Silent Tempest the most enjoyable?

    i loved the idea that he falls into the anti hero charecter, you follow his path and think i could have done that, not thinking of the consequences


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Tempest?

    the matter of fact moment when the main character is called a rapist and he has to face up to what he has done, and that what he thought was harmless fun was much darker


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    i wish i could easily narrow it down to one


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when he wants to help his daughter, but all he can do to help her is make her harder and more vicious
