Publisher's Summary

The final audiobook of the Sovereign of the Seven Isles begins in the mountains of Andalia with Alexander - wounded, surrounded and fleeing for his life. Isabel learns that Phane can use her link with the darkness for his own, terrible ends. And Abigail rallies the Coven to face the Sin’Rath, a threat now magnified a hundred fold. Battle rages across the Seven Isles, and Alexander Reishi stands at the center of it all. As forces converge on the Nether Gate, he departs on a desperate quest to free Isabel, kill Phane and banish the Shades for all time.

Not great, but better than many.

Loads of sidetracking in this series and too little focus on the main plotline for quite a few books. This story ends here though, and thank you for finally getting there Mr. Wells.

Could have been so much more done with the power of the main character. He seems to make the strangest mistakes at times, and always ends up having to go though a few more chapters before getting back on track.

As the numbers of books increase, so does the number og characters to follow, most of them turning 2 dimentional after a few chapters. There are really only three deep characters in this story, and it could have been finished within a trilogy.

Read in between the releases of better series, or better yet... don't waste a credit better spent elsewhere.

Runs fine at 1.5x speed on my Samsung S5 without distortion.

Good narrator is a plus.

Good but

So I started story a year ago I like the first three books. it should end at three because of the book 7-ish was just a hassle to get this last book because it was just such a long story of the same characters never having a conflict of interest and the black and white nature of all the characters.

Every Book of Series Brought Something New

I have listened to all 7 books and never lost interest! It is a terrific book for fantasy fans - mages, witches, fairies, dragons PLUS many other unique life forms populate the saga of good verses evil. Heroes get hurt, some die, unexpected events spin the tale in unexpected directions.

I am going to listen to the books again to catch details I might have missed in this wonderful tale of magic and the hearts of men.

In league with The Chronicles of Narnia

The entire series was thorough and beautiful. The Herod were not who you expect and the possibilities for the future of the Seven Isles is infinite.

Overall a good read and series

Overall I'd give the series a thumbs up.

Cons:

The characters felt a bit too straightforward at times- the good were "ultra good" and the bad were evil in the extreme (with a few exceptions). That's refreshing in some ways and a bit predictable at other times. The unadulterated nature of the hero of the story was a bit hard to relate to, he was just so darn pure of heart. At it's core, it's a story of light vs. dark, so I guess the characters reflect that, and It's hard to slam the story too much for that, since I knew that was the case going in and it's what I wanted.

The only real complaint I have (the above is really just an observation) is how quickly the storyline wrapped up at the end. The author took so long describing each and every trial the heroes overcame throughout the entire series in hyper detail, that I wanted the same level of explanation of what happened after the story arc climax. Instead we got a 15 minutes grand overview and hints and snippets. The author obviously took great delight in painstakingly crafting horrible and awful scenes for the characters to walk through and overcome, only to wrap things up way too quickly to feel really satisfied at the end, though it wasn't completely dropped.

I could have done with less detail about the plants in the jungle and hearing about the same emotions time and time again as the characters walked through similar situations and reacted the same. I got to where I would roll my eyes every time I heard the phrase "thrill of fear"- (that would make a good drinking game for listening to this book!)

Pros:

I do like the overall storyline. The use of magic in the story was well conceived and thought out, and the creativity of the realm was very immersive. The author described each scene with detail sufficient to picture exactly what was going on. I was also able to connect with the characters sufficiently (despite my above comment) to feel invested in them and care when they suffered or triumphed. The reading was very well done (as most audible authors seem to be) and the range of voices helped identify and the performance added to the story immensely.

Finally bringing together the numerous plot points.

There we so many elements and characters in the plots that it was a great effort to bring them to a conclusion. However, there were so many points that it feels rushed. It is better that the pervious two books where it seemed that nothing got better as all elements got worse.

I would recommend this

To anyone that is wanting to find a good fantasy book with detailed fights and everything that goes with magic. Having to have 2 enemies that are more powerful, and still overcome and have his happy ending.
