I honestly didn't care for the first book but

it has greatly gotten better over the course of the series. If the next book is better I'm going to be excited to dig in to it.

Incredible

If you have made it to book three, then you must like the series. Even though you haven’t listened to it yet, you’ll be desperate for book 4. Book 4 isn’t released till July 10th 2018 so it’ll be a rough wait for you. I bought an ebook because I can’t wait even a day to read the next book. Mine as well buy book 4 if you buy this.

Jesme...... So bad

This book is amazing, and the voice actor for kaier was spot on, UT the voice actor for jesme was so bad, I skipped her sections completely.

Story pretty good, narrating detracts at times

I keep listening to see where the story goes, but Xe detracts from the experience. She uses the same cadence at style with both female characters. I also just really didn't like any part from Jessmae's perspective. She just isn't a compelling character

And the store drags on!

What started out to be such a great story in the first book has now become slog through the mud. I really think the name of the book series needs to be renamed from the Destroyer to the Captured. If he keeps this storyline going I’m sure every in character the book will be captured at least once and then find a way to escape. God I really hope the next book is the last one. The only reason i’m finishing the series now is I’m so deep into the story now I would like to see how it turns out. But if he keeps dragging it on like this book then I’m done with it, it’s not worth the aggravation. I am very disappointed in all the clichés and gimmicks the author uses to drag this store on. This whole story gives me a feels like I am reading a screenplay not a Fantasy novel. What I mean by that is all the intricate detail description of environments and little actions the characters all doing from one moment to the next. Who knows maybe the author hopes this might be the next Game of Thrones. It definitely has the potential for that.

Form ok to worse

Book one was okay enough I moved on to book 2. That was a slog... my issues from book one continued in book 2 but they made it so much worse by adding Xe Sands in as a second narrator. Her voice and cadence and style are all so jarring it is not a good experience. Unfortunately I purchased books 2 and 3 at the same time. I’m slowly working my way through but I honestly will probably just return these. I have 40 audiobooks in audible and about 370 in iTunes with various narrators but Xe Sands has got to be the worst I’ve ever listened too. Her portions of the book make me want to just shut it off as I often do. I was cruising through 5-10 audiobooks a month until these last two destroyer books and now it seems I’d rather sit in silence at work or while doing the dishes than listen to her awful narration. It’s a shame because I really like a lot of Michael Scott-Earle’s stuff.

Best Book In Series!

Michael-Scott Earle has outdone himself yet again.
This series keeps getting better and better. The author has done a great job at world building and plot pacing. (better than first 2 books) This book has been very well trimmed of it's fat to leave only the best meat.

I only have one complaint. Michael, if you're reading this... please please please kill off that useless annoying spoiled brat princess. She never learns anything and keeps getting in the way of the plot.
Kill her with fire. Kill her with swords. Kill her with magic. I don't care. Just end her.😋 I've rarely read a more annoying character. Every time I think she's going to advance beyond Spoiled Princesses to someone who's learned to harden herself into something useful, she falls right back into self pity.

ps. a random volcano isn't even to much to end the Princess.

Good book though!

Need to read it, but it is going to be rough.

You need to read the book flat out.
Obviously it has important info to the storyline.
I will warn you it's about as hard to listen to as the land book 8's poo knife chapter.
I absolutely hate jess, and nadia. You could cut them out of the story, and it wouldn't change a thing. I'm not a writer, but I'd rather have had some more details on the lore of how their magic works. The ancients are just grazed over all the time, and those characters just seem like a stereotype. It just feels like the main character is too good for that nonsensical muddling.
It's a great series, and I'll be reading it again. I'll be sure to just skip jess, and nadia's chapters next time.
Highly suggest the whole series.

Jessmei

I understand she is a princess, but her panicking 24/7 was getting a little bit annoying from time to time. Besides that I loved it.

You know it’s a good book when..

You know it’s a good book when you feel a little empty and sad that’s finished.
