Publisher's Summary

There’s thunder on the horizon, and the lightning of war is about to strike.

After years of struggle, Layla Cassidy has finally mastered the dark powers that threatened to control her and turned them to good. She’s ready to fight, but the next battle will be her greatest test yet.

The forces of Avalon are growing ever stronger, reinforcing their dominance with almighty displays of brutality. When Abaddon comes close to crushing Layla and her friends, it’s clear that the thunder of war is about to give way to lightning - and that they have no chance of surviving it alone.

The final battle against Abaddon is drawing closer. Now Layla and her friends must fight for themselves - and the future of the world. To win, they will need every power and ally they can muster. But even with all their strength, will it be enough to stand against the impending doom?

Awesome finale to a brilliant series

Loved this book, nearly listened to it in one sitting. Layla was again a relatable character and Reny was as always awesome.

Great trilogy ending!

Brilliant way to end a phenomenal trilogy. The voice work is amazing and fits each character nicely.

Better than I expected.

I truly appreciate how all of the characters were brought together. I REALLY love the cliffhangers on a few stories. It gives me hope that the stories will continue for Nate, Laliah and the new Shadow Elf (Tarryan/if it's misspelled, my apologies). Arthur his followers need to be stopped.

Please never choose this narrator again!

While the story has some good potential, the narrator is honestly garbage. She mispronounces dozens of words, including names like Abaddon and Cerberus (why would you pronounce it kerb-er-us) and her flat delivery and terrible attempt at accents ruins this story. I hope for better choices in future narrators.

wonderful conclusion

This book was great! My only quibble with it is that the ending was a little too quick based on the lead in to it, but in no way does it "ruin" the book. the narrator was wonderful, i hope both her and the male narrator from the hellequin series split the narration in the new series!

great story but bad narration

Outstanding story.
Amazing writing.....with an awesome end that got me excited......
Major downside is the terrible narration.
Unfortunately this narrator has limited voices and those she does are incredibly similar to others in the story.
biggest downside and an insult to the writing is her lack of correct pronunciation of the characters who's names are NOT just part of this writers work but many are well known and simply pronounced wrong.

Fabulous!

Once again Mr. McHugh has written a fabulous book . Gripping from the first page to the last. With the best Epilogue. Cannot wait for the next series to start and a return to my favourite characters, and the final battles with Avalon. Thank you!

thank god it's an audio book

one of the worst written books I've ever heard. the author uses the word rage about every other line and can't describe his characters with anything else really but they've created a good world (I'll give them that). the only reason I listen is because it's mindless entertainment that I can listen to in the car as I don't really need to focus on it so therefore can dip in and out of the story while concentrating on driving.
