Description

The looming war with Darrow has faded to a distant shadow, but Will’s continued studies at Wurthaven are disrupted by an unforeseen threat.

Selene’s absence has raised suspicion among her friends and Will’s father-in-law, the king, is now directing his ire at the obvious culprit: his daughter’s new husband. Meanwhile, the citizens of Cerria have begun disappearing and a shadowy figure is stalking Will’s sister, Laina.

With his power pushed to the limit, Will finds himself attempting to preserve a family that rejected him and trying to save a city whose king might rather see him dead. Desperate for help, he may not be able to trust the powers that have supported him in the past, for though the fae could be the source of the catastrophe, they only offer their assistance for a price. Evil stalks the streets of Cerria at night, seeking the blood of his family, the destruction of the city, and the death of the king.

Will may have to decide what is most important for Terabinia: preserving the people of its most prosperous city or saving its questionable ruler.

Continuation of Excellence

Keep it going, Manning and team! Excellent series, more enjoyable even than the Wheel of Time or Stormlight series :)

Excellent Series

Have found these books very delightful and entertaining with the right touches of drama, suspense and humour. Tim Gerard Reynolds does his usual magic with the narration breathing life into each character.

Each book in the series keeps getting better

The best fantasy series I've experienced in over a decade.
Tim Gerard Reynolds performance is beyond measure and impressive as always.

Immaculately crafted and curated.

This is a achievement of pure craftsmanship and lengthy character development. Their isn’t a book/ audiobook out that’s has the same flair for the mundane as well as the supernatural. I’m delighted in the fact that scholar of magic is even more of a delight to read than the predecessors. Definitely a masterwork in my humble opinion!

great book

I liked the book, probably one of the quickest listens I've done in a while. Some things seemed a bit forced. Some things other people seem to just nit pick at that I didn't mind, there is nothing wrong with this book other than it was too short and the next book isn't out right now in audio form.

Great, but....

I loved this book and was entertained by it. however, it feels like this series has lost direction and purpose. all it is now is main character trying to live life rather than having an overarching goal. it was also hard to relate to the book for me. the character made many questionable decitions that don't seem consistent with his personality.(spoiler) like saving a moral enemy.

Audio performance amazing; Book good

First, Tim Gerard Reynolds is the best narrator hands down. I could listen to him read the phone book. Second this is no phone book. I do recommend it for those that enjoy epic fantasies focused on magic and/or fantasy coming of age stories..

The magic system world building (including multiple planes or realms) and most characters are very good, consistent and believable.

Sentence for sentence, Michael Manning is a very good even often excellent writer. I do appreciate his style. I also really appreciate the speed with which he gets his latest creations published. That said I feel he needs more critical editing beyond wordsmithing.

It seems many, if not all, of his books have a plot hole, unexplainable character motivation (beyond reader suspense or moving plot forward), or simple incongruities that kick the reader out of the fantasy otherwise being artfully woven. Often these are not even central and could be easily softened or written around. Almost made it through this book clean but don’t want to spoil or pre/place questions i readers minds. I was engaged then reality came crashing down as you realize something g is just impossible and totally incongruous. It was a minor incident but it was just unnecessary and it was jarring.

Another problem is the seeming random and changing mood of the super powerful characters who sometimes help then decline to help then actively fight against Will. Done well these are “red herrings” but too often It’s just not done smoothly. It comes off as desperation to get out of tricky situations.

Cheating part spoilers.

For anyone who found that part disturbing you can get the answers on the Prologue chapter on the first 13 mins or so and continue enjoying the rest of the story.

Sorcery, bravery, and...humor?

This series is fantastic, each one is fun, well written, and funny. Think “Lies of Locke Lamora” for humor, Kvothe’s brilliance from “Name of the wind”, and Sebastian de Castell writing quality all rolled into one.
The Narrator is really good too! Definitely a worthwhile pick up

Varying Quality of Characters and Audio

Character development takes weird turns. It would probably be the wrong word to say it's getting more "erotic", but it's defendant getting more crude. The author is definitely letting fantasies from teenage years shine through.

The performance is excellent as usual. Done weird shifts in audio quality. Sounds like places has been recorded and edited in using other equipment.
