From start to finish this book engages. The key characters are solid, real people, i felt this world as though in it, running parallel and fuelled by gendered stereotypes where men are the meeker milder sex and women are not to be trifled with. Political posturing, assasinations, betrayal, no family picnics, just business, everyone doing their best jostling for whatever power they have, or locked into alliances determined to even the playing field. There is a no holds barred approach to maximum transparency. showing the pain, illness, inner voices, choices that face everyone, though few i know have lived such lives. War, drugs, plots, manipulations and women no longer deemed weak. This book leads to reflections on history/herstory, pondering now, if, we should in fact think more on who we are, and makes our choices, to battle or not, to serve war or peace, strength or weakness, good, evil, based on who we each are, rather than by stereotypes that ease the accepting masses into sleep, to be slaughtered by a tsunami style tide of harvest. i enjoyed this good vs evil trip about a planet and some places. i would recommend this listen to women and men of mature age. Narrated beyond well! This voice gave each character their own style. Bravo!

I say Captivated, as, i was, from book one to now has been the most rewarding fantasy binge audiobook session in ages. I am a new recruit to the Michael J Sullivan fan club, so i am thrilled to learn that i have more characters to meet, and that, in the timeline, im in a good spot as far as realms and places go. The story pulls on feelings, and i believe pays due notice, in more than one instance, to the recurring and ongoing truth of loss, regret, and decisions made that still we question. Sincere thanks for the story, and the intro outro chats, lending insight to who and how your process, team, and family support and enable such full tellings. im impressed with the Narrator's narration. being so good as to allow each character unique speech patterns, inflections and favoured expressions. If any wonder if this series can deliver escapism and reflection, Yes. and, tbh. i, like, the Authors wife, have made friends of fictional characters and will carry parts of who they are, with me. it was my pleasure to meet you all .

I'm glad the next books are written

Definitely interesting. The story is unusual enough for me to be hooked. The characters are people i can admire and relate too. a good mix of traits and reasons exist for each. book 2 is ready to play! 👍

loving this tale!

It' takes me to a place.. where choices matter, where awareness of our influencers matter. where making decisions is based on what we, each, in our own self decide we can define in general terms as either good/bad, principled and tolerant, or selfish and evil, for the greater good or all good for the greatest. It's a look at owning our place, for better or for worse. And it leaves that much wanted, and idealised concept of, in truth never knowing who we may truly be until our days are done. because, who I was yesterday, learning what i was , is not who I want to be, it's u po to me, to choose a new direction. we really are that free. It's ok to have a change of heart and switch sides. to aim for different values than you at first aimed for. It's called growth. as well, it makes a one more powerful with a collective behind them. it illustrates, good deeds, can hurt deeply and require great personal sacrifice. it does not pretend that all will understand a heart that's changed. it asks us to value friendship, to be discerning about what is and isn't truth, to try to understand others motives. it shows, that actions we may condemn, are ones we secretly champion when the benefit aids our own cause. it shows human fault. And human tenderness and pain. it seeks to hold ourselves accountable, and to not shy aw way from talking about the challenges on your path. friendship. loyalty and betrayal. I wish that I could step outside of time! bring on the Next, so I can delve deep into a rounded healthy concept of what does and doesn't matter. I feel a happy ending. but one human enough and real enough to know that all happiness has as companion it's quieter friend of sorrow. balanced as the patterns on butterflies wings, should we be willing to go into our depths and truly decode what we are, we can emerge fron a coccoon where we chose self an a lysos, introspection, we can take our self apart and make ourselves completely new again. we can chsnge oyr face. a death of one self a birth of another. and in so doing, we become balanced beautiful beings that can fly! xxxx

I loved this. looking forward to more of this story. characters were introduced steadily, relationships formed understood and the plot grew steadily. momentum built, and the depth of intrigue plunged and had me not wanting to miss a thing. of course, getting to the end of this book, with so much yet to be told, is hard. So I hope Kel Kade is publishing the next book already.

Emotionally triggered, in parts I cried, for love, for loss, for yearning. easily understood feelings, patient love, family secrets, unrequited love, infatuation, heroes, legends, God's, ambition and desire. Comraderie, belonging, isolation, broken, abandoned, hating oneself, remorse, tragedy, despair, belief, knowing, it's not easy to be the new person, it's not easy to get past your self, where what you think of you holds you back, self belief, seeing others for how they are. How nice it would be to imagine a thing and be able to create it, dealing with difference, prejudice, tradition, customs, the right action can be tainted so badly when performed by the wrong person, is murder sometimes the best answer God, has such a human way, though to know him is to face your self and live in penance. he wants you to carry on. to take that leap of faith. but knows you need to take it yourself. forces, magic, powers, weapons, invisibility cloaks, types of colours, types of personalities, driving forces, energy, light, and beasts born from loneliness and despair, and dragons. bears, and styles so different. but each worthy, valued, even those who don't quite fit. I want to be one of the Mighty! to be known for my unique blend of skill, my personality and to be named by my peers, to be counted, included and never left behind. true stuff. open your heart. And fall into a world where the road travelled twists and turns and carries you into questioning who is good who is bad and understanding it is only perspective and circumstance that separates us. I think i will listen to this book agsin. great voice work! such a lovely voice. is One to find myself chapters ahead frequently. 😳😕🥰🥰 so I should listen again. because perhaps half of what I heard, was my own dream. x

I truly enjoy the relationship between Dante and Blaze, and the plot twists, life heads in one direction and new directions are followed as they arise. they stick to their morals. they get involved in crazy stuff. they nut stuff out.. adventurers through and through. Great escapism!

The characters stories, reveal the complexities of being human, as experienced and understood from an objective, gentle, personalised, 'safe space' as can be found in a therapists room. Self reflective opportunities are abundant. The book reads well, it covers a range of concerns, and though our 'concerns with ourselves' are worthy of deep consideration, this is approached in a light way. tho book serves as both an introduction to what therapy is and how it should look, feel and progress, but is also a beautifully expressed volume that catalogues the writers personal journey, through her own heartache as she endeavours to be both the best therapist she can be, and find, in the therapy sessions she has sought for herself, a way to move forwards in her own life.

I've listened to all books leading to this one, and the voices and intimations are so vastly different it's hard to hear. I can't even see the same characters in my mind. sigh.. it's hurting. but I'm going to try, this 2nd time, to let it go so I can hear the story. but, it's disapointing. The performance is letting me down. I suspect the reader didn't listen to the previous stories..
