The future of the Ashaiian haven, the newly founded Kingdom of Cael, is anything but secured. Rezkin must seek recognition from the King of Gendishen if his people are to maintain possession of their island home and the enchanted secret it contains. In an unexpected twist, events overtake Rezkin, and he is thrust into a frustrating adventure to seek a worthless prize. He finds that his carefully constructed reputation as an indomitable foe has consequences as others seek to use his strengths for their own gain.

A thousand years ago, an alien invasion set humanity back to the Iron Age. Slowly, we recovered, colonizing the Solar System in peace. And discovered that an unknown force is stopping us from exploring any farther. But before the cause can be discovered, a slow-burning conspiracy threatens to explode into System-wide war. With enemies at home and in the darkness beyond, a team of unlikely heroes-a janitor, a mercenary, an asteroid miner, and a pirate-are the only ones who can avert a second apocalypse. This set includes the first three books of the newly-finished REBEL STARS series.

Very much enjoy Edward W Robinson's books, and this is another winner!! Quite sure, if you have read/listened to any of his books, Rebel Stars will not disappoint. Ray Chase is a great narrator, brings each of the characters to life.

Ten years after the events of Morning Star, Darrow and the Rising are battling the remaining Gold loyalist forces and are closer than ever to abolishing the color-coded caste system of Society for good. But new foes will emerge from the shadows to threaten the imperfect victory Darrow and his friends have earned. Pierce Brown expands the size and scope of his impressive Red Rising universe with new characters, enemies, and conflicts among the stars.

Have to admit, found Iron Gold not as enjoyable as the Red Rising Trilogy, which is excellent. The Trilogy is one of the best I've listened to, it was thoroughly enjoyable; the narration by Tim G Reynolds was outstanding. Iron Gold took me by surprise by the way the story was presented with the different narrators, not a huge fan of this type of presentation. Also, in my opinion, the main character was more out of the story than in, not to mention a total disappointment. Bottom line, for myself, just expected more. #Audible1

The epic battle between humankind and their godlike rulers finally ignites in the masterful follow-up to Age of Myth and Age of Swords. The alliance of humans and renegade Fhrey is fragile - and about to be tested as never before. As the Fhrey overlords marshal their army and sorcerers to crush the rebellion, old loyalties will be challenged while fresh conspiracies will threaten to undo all that Persephone has accomplished.

that the next book isn't available. I was totally plugged into the story and wanted to know more. It is another excellent book in the series written by Michael J. Sullivan, as well the narration by T.G. Reynolds who raises anything he narrates to a whole new level. The ending was such a surprise' not at all what what I thought would happen, but I guess this is what makes this series such an amazing journey. The 'Age of War' will not disappoint!

Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

I enjoyed the story, really have nothing negative to say. It is in my opinion geared more towards a younger audience, in saying this, regardless I still found it entertaining. The bottom line is entertainment. Would I listen to a sequel- absolutely!! Nick Podel is an awesome narrator, I have listened to several books read by Podel and he does a great effort in taking on the characters in each story. Basically, any story that he takes on to narrate is a safe listen!!

Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but longstanding enmities dividing the Rhune make it all but impossible to unite against the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess renders them indistinguishable from gods? The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind.

It’s truly a great listen...only leaves you needing the next ‘fix’. But, seriously I have listen to pretty much all of the MJ Sullivan’s books and never once have felt disappointed. I guess in reality my only disappointment is that it doesn’t continue on forever!! The narrator, Tim Gerard Reynolds is without exception one of the best narrators I’ve listened to, he totally brings the characters
as well as story to life, not only to Sullivan’s novels but any novel he narrates
