Loved the narration, nice easy to listen to story too, maybe a little predictable but still worth a listen

The world is falling to the burning shadow of the Possessed and only the power of a battle mage can save it. But the ancient bond with dragonkind is failing. Of those that answer a summoning too many are black. Black dragons are the enemy of humankind. Black dragons are mad. Falco Dante is a weakling in a world of warriors, but worse than this, he is the son of a madman. Driven by grief, Falco makes a decision that will drive him to the brink of despair. As he tries to come to terms with his actions Falco follows his friends to the Academy of War.

Really enjoyed this, production and editing let it down in parts with sentences being cut off but didn’t detract from a great gripping story

Following Stronghold's destruction, Rukh and Jessira lead the ragged remnants of the OutCastes on the long march to Ashoka. There they seek sanctuary for her people, but in order to do so they must overcome unyielding law that demands exile for all ghrinas. Meanwhile, Hal'El Wrestiva - exposed and reviled as the Withering Knife murderer - escapes from Ashoka and hatches one final scheme to resuscitate his soiled reputation.

It started well but my god for every 1 chapter of battle and action there is 4 chapters of pointless chit chat. Why the entire first 2 books were dedicated to their bigotries I'll never know, fair enough use the first book to establish this theme but by the second get on with the action. There were probably 5 real action scenes across the whole
Trilogy. Wouldn't recommend starting this series.
