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!

Clarke has penned a remarkably exciting and charming novel here. Vivid world building and an exciting plot are just the thing needed to make these spectacular characters shine.
I thoroughly enjoyed the well developed backstory and mythology that surrounds both this tale and the world that Clarke has developed. Different cultures and races come together to defeat a common enemy as prophecies are fulfilled. The sense of inevitability combines with a solid sense of individuality for a charming mix.
This is a tale that will be enjoyed by fantasy lovers hound and old alike. The mix of adventure and danger, alongside a cast of unforgettable characters is well worth diving into.
