As opposition gathers from unexpected places, dragonkind fights for survival, and a long-awaited reckoning grows close.

Soléne masters her magic, but questions the demands the world will make of her. Unable to say no when the call of duty comes, Gill realizes that the life he had given up on has not given up on him.

Once a servant of the crown, ever a servant of the crown....

Well rounded storytelling

I throughly enjoyed this trilogy. Each book has a well rounded piece of the story and it ends with a satisfying conclusion. Superbly read as always by Stephen Vance

Brilliant!

I listened to the whole trilogy back to back and enjoyed it thoroughly. I knew there was a reason I saved those three credits! ;) Simon Vance, of course, is a fabulous narrator/actor and have listened to so many of his narrations across multiple genres. He always brings a story to life and he does so here. Duncan M Hamilton is a fantastic writer! First stop, sci fi and now to fantasy was not at all a problem for him. Flawless writing on both counts! He's definitely a writer to watch out for. Action, humour and amazing creativity. Can't wait to listen to more from him. I recommend this trilogy definitely. Thanks to all that made this happen. :)

Love the story and Narration!

Duncan M. Hamilton tells a great story!! Very fun to read but complex enough to keep the mystery. I really enjoy all the series.

Dragons! You’re Really Going to Like This.

Engaging, Not Quite Riveting

I stopped listening to all other titles to to finish this non-stop in under one day, so is not as though Duncan M. Hamilton has dropped the ball on this one. It's good, but not his greatest. It had the usual plot twists and turns, and good action, but none of it felt quite as exciting as the first two novels in this stores or, to compare it with another closer, the end of the Wolf of the North trilogy. The twists weren't quite as unexpected, the character development more minimal, and the ending confrontation certainly less dramatic. At the same time, as always the writing and world building are great and there's some clear setup for following titles which I will eagerly await. Oh, and if you haven't figured out yet that Simon Vance is awesome, go listen to his rendition of the complete Sherlock Holmes - not a single repeat voice with new characters.

The exciting conclusion to a great adventure!

Gil and Solene master their individual skills and finish their exciting adventure! Great portrayal of dragonkind, as the richly developed characters take you on a fantastic journey.

Good fun and an easy listen!

While this trilogy is set in the classic high fantasy world of knights, kings, magic, and dragons, I often found myself pleasantly surprised by how these common elements were executed. There are still plenty of tropes and predictable moments, but the story is fairly fresh given the world and Simon Vance does a great job with narration. If you’re looking for lots of blood and grit this won’t be for you—the writing is generally more easygoing on the soul (though not utterly devoid of tension). Good fantasy comfort food that I’ll definitely revisit annually when I’m on financial breaks from the monthly credits!

Great series

Very entertaining series. Fast paced with twists that kept you wondering what was going to happen next. Also I love “good triumphs over evil” books.

exceptional

I loved every second of this book. The only thing I didn't like was when it was over. It brought the events of the first two books to an excellent conclusion. And I am very excited as it seems to have ended on a little bit of a cliffhanger, I am hoping another series extends from this one. I would also love to see a prequel. keep writing Hamilton, this fantasy world you have created is amazing

Very enjoyable

I’ve really enjoyed this trilogy, as I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve listened to, by Duncan M. Hamilton. I hoped that this final instalment would have been longer & I certainly hope that we will see the main characters again, in subsequent audiobooks.

Rushed ending

An enjoyable series overall so disappointing to see a rushed last book. All story lines felt half baked and as if the author just wanted the book to be done with.

Great trilogy, interesting and engaging from start to finish. Hoping for more from Mr. Hamilton soon!
