This is the third and final book of the Ascendant series. I have enjoyed these three books. The story has been a bit different from the usual wizard stories. The narrating of these books has been very good. I enjoyed the ending. Well done Craig Alanson. These books are certainly a change from the Expeditionary Force series.

Loved it.

This story is about a young wizard who does not know he is a wizard. Unlike Harry Potter, he is never told he is a wizard, so he thinks he is a jinx. He and his parents are thrown off their farm and out of their village because of strange things which happen when the young boy is around. They set out on a journey to find a place to live. When his parents disappear, he believes he has been deserted by them because he is a jinx and causes trouble wherever he goes. He is finally discovered and taken in by a influential wizard who recognises that the boy will develop into the most powerful wizard in the known world but still doesn't tell him because the boy hasn't come into his full power. The young lad makes friends with the princess who will be queen in two years if there is anything left of her country to be queen of. Her mother is regent and is procrastinating about doing anything to protect their country from the enemy. I loved this story.

Great follow on from Ascendant

I loved this book. It was well narated and interesting. These three books are a bit of a change from Craig Alanson's previous books.

A bit slow to start with.

There was a bit of repetition at the start of this book. I struggled to read this book to start with and nearly gave up but am glad I persisted. When Skippy was introduced it became better. The humor between Joe and Skippy is very funny. I did have both Kindle and audiobook and loved being able to change from one to the other. The narrator was good.

Interesting.

A few twists and turns in this book. Excellent narration by James Patrick Cronin. An enjoyable read with a different slant on aliens and their invasion of earth.

Lovely story.

Cyril Bonhamy is just the funny kind of idiot that kids like. A most enjoyable, amusing tale.

An enjoyable but quite different slant on the Peter Pan story. Way to go Wendy! Stand up for womens' rights.
