Publisher's Summary

Moira Illeniel was the name she lived by, but her true heritage was more complicated than that. From birth she was the secretly adopted daughter of the most powerful wizard in the world, but few knew that her true birthright came from the Centyr lineage. Traveling to Dunbar to discover the fate of her vanished father, Moira must face the darker aspects of her power. Forced to fight a foe unlike anything seen before in Lothion, she will learn the reason for the warnings her mother's shade gave her - why certain abilities should never be used and some lines never crossed - for some doors, once opened, might never be closed again.

Can’t be five stars without inventing new cuss words...

Yeah... it’s pretty riveting, but when there’s so much F’n this and F’n that, it just traps the whole narrative in this world, and I don’t get drawn into the story... like, there is a big stinky brute who won’t let me stay inside the party. He keeps kicking me out, and because of that, the party kinda sucks.

The love story between Graham and Alyssa is ruining this book

Spoilers ahead. I’m convince someone else wrote Embers of a Illeniels (EoI)or he was assisted. I’ve read EoL And fell in love with the characters, story,and the pace. So I was thrilled when I found out that this author also published other series with in the same world. I’m halfway through this book and although it is entertaining it’s nowhere near the level of EoL. The number one thing I cannot stand about this series so far is the love story between Graham and Alyssa. It feels forced. Their relationship doesn’t really develop he meets her he falls in love with her she betrays him he forgives her.But as a reader I can’t understand why he would forgive her because the relationship never developed to the point that someone reasonable could forgive that level of betrayal.

Good but sensitive ears should not be around

The book is good but the language limits who I can recommend the book to. Just be warned language would make this a strong PG-13 or mild R The F bomb is used several times through the book lack of imagination to use the same profanity that we have in our world rather then make up new words to get the point across just a shame the books would be a good listen on road trips as it is headphone only

One of my all time favorite books.

I have been listening to these stories from the bitter start. I find myself itching for more when I came to the end of one book. Wishing that I didn't have to wait for the next book to either be set out on paperback. Or to be listened to from Audible.

The twisting of Moira

A very good continuation of the Mageborn saga. While much of the first half of the story revolves around the three young adult scions of the royal families and the older hunter/tracker in search of Mordecai, in one sense, it's more about the transitioning of the young adults from their sheltered and naive youth to that of clear-headed and cold awareness of the world around them. This is most profoundly thrust upon Moira as she finds herself becoming aware of heretofore unknown powers. Powers so horrible that, when exercised, strips her innocence and makes her so wrought with guilt that her personality borders on psychopathy.

There are several grievous moments where, in the aftermath, the protagonists are left second guessing their decisions to the point of being debilitating. While not clearly outlined, the author subtly touches on the concept of fate, destiny or self-determination and while he provides no clear answers, he does burnish the sharp edges of the consequences.

While there are a few weak areas in the story such as the dragons where they mostly play the role of transportation, with sometimes breaking/burning things, the hunter/tracker's Asperger Syndrome being over used, &c but, even so, the book was enjoyable, made the more so by the excellent talents of the narrator.

Continues the story but not the best in the series

it was good and the narrator did a fine job. It delves into the Centyr power, which is interesting. the story is just a little too focused on one aspect and it's not very flavorful.

awesome

Michael Manning books are above average..they are a great listen..would say read. but we don't do that here do we..lol.. The narrator really brings to life..Derek Perkins is amazing..I tried listening to some of Michael's books from 2012 I think..it is some from this series but the narrator was terrible..I just couldn't last over 2 minutes..I wish Mr. Perkins would go back and perform them.

Eh

it's good, but not as good as the first in my opinion. a little repetitive, but I'm not really one to read fighting/war type books. And, I just kinda don't get why M acts so surprised at things. She's supposed to like 1000 yrs old right?
