Publisher's Summary

Forced into the heart of the Aisl Forest, Rsiran and the guilds regroup and try to find a way to reclaim the city from Venass and the Elvraeth council. Rsiran has stopped the production of shadowsteel, but Venass still possesses dangerous weapons, and what's more, one of the great crystals remains missing.

Forced into an alliance with the mysterious Carth in order to find the crystal, they make new allies and discover the means to reclaim the city, but will it be too late? With one of the Elder Trees already gone, recovering the crystal is the key to stopping Venass for good, but as they approach the final battle, Venass proves even more powerful than they ever imagined.

The final novel in The Dark Ability series.

Potential Wasted

I listened to all 7 books in about a week. The series isn't bad. Was a good over all store. The constant, repetitive, repetitive, repetitive internal dialog is Anoying! Several plot ideas started aannddd never went anywhere. Thus the end had allot of lose ends. The end was.... sudden. Do a re write. Condence to 4 or 5 books. Remove 80% off the internal dialogs. Develooe some of the spotty plot ideas or never mention them. (See main character quickly learning medicine and never using it) Develop more of the supporting characters. As is the potential great story fell short.

Lacking Full Closure

The ending was too quick and short, and seemed to be missing a few things.

Good book quick ending.

The end was didn't resolve some questions I had. I felt like the author was rushed to finish, or didn't have a good enough concept on shadow steel, so his explanation was removed in the drafts before final release.

Narrator is awesome!
