Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Absolutely fantastic

Finishing this was like finishing a well prepared 3 course meal. This book has nearly everything and does it all right. Even the narrator is great. i sincerely hope that this series gets the praise and success it deserves. And if this book is anything to judge by, its only going to get better.

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.

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

Not as good as first 2 books

The voice actor was great. I just really didn’t like that this book had SOOO much idle conversation and over explanations. It felt really dragged out which frustrated me many times. It just felt like someone was trying to meet a word count requirement and ranted on and on about irrelevant stuff. Overall, I still liked the book but it could have been (and should have been) much shorter.

What a clean ending!

The feelings this book gives are raw and touches on what we all desire in humanity. Love, trust, and bravery.
