Enchanting Action Adventure Fantasy!
I highly recommend The Secret of Isian and the entire Isian Trilogy by Serena Clarke. It is an enchanting adventure series filled with mystery, action, and romance. The Secret of Isian is the third and final book in the series, which centers around Prince Ander. He is a truly remarkable hero who garners the respect and admiration of everyone with whom he meets. Ander is sent on a quest to find a secret weapon that will help protect his people and end the war that has been brewing since the first book. Rimelda is a “seer” who helps Ander on his quest to end the war. Despite Ander doubting her abilities, there is an undeniable attraction between the two. I especially enjoyed how Ander and Rimelda are both humble and good natured people who would sacrifice themselves to save just one man.
I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Carolyn Kashner, who did a great job narrating with varying voices for both male and female characters. Because this story picks up almost immediately after the second book (The Alliance of Isian), I recommend starting with the first book (The Treasure of Asian) to better understand the overarching premise and interrelationships between the characters. For example, the villain in this book is introduced in the first book, but not mentioned at all in the second. And the hero and heroines of the other two books make appearances in this one. Be forewarned though: once you start listening to this series, it will suck you in and won't let you go until you are finished with it!

I enjoyed this third book in the series very much. It took me a little bit into the book to place the characters (the ones that had been introduced in the previous books). The story was very engaging and and I loved how it kept moving quickly. I struggled just a little on the audio version every time "Ander" and "Andrew" were in the same scene. Sometimes I wasn't sure which character the narrator had said (the names closely resemble each other to my ears). I listened to the book in my car and I kept wanting to listen to more whenever I reached my destination. To me that's a sign of a great audiobook! I'm also a lover of books that end well without any lose ends. Thank you Serena Clarke for a very entertaining book!
