Publisher's Summary

Avalon stands revealed, but the war is far from over. For Layla Cassidy, it has only just begun.
Thrust into a new world full of magic and monsters, Layla has finally come to terms with her supernatural powers - and left her old life behind. But her enemies are relentless.
Sixteen months after her life changed forever, Layla and her team are besieged during a rescue attempt gone awry and must fight their way through to freedom. It turns out that Avalon has only grown since their last encounter, adding fresh villains to its horde. Meanwhile, revelations abound as Layla confronts twists and betrayals in her own life, with each new detail adding to the shadow that looms over her.
As Layla fights against the forces of evil, her powers begin to increase - and she discovers more about the darkness that lies in her past. As this same darkness threatens her future, will she be ready to fight for everything she holds dear?

Page Turner

Loved all his books so far. You need to read all the Hellequin Chronicles first to really understand the full story. This series keeps the story and entertainment going.

Really good

This series so far has been very different from anything else I have listened to in that it has all the usual beasts and monsters many of us are familiar with such as werewolves, the odd vampire, dwarfs and mythical gods and new beings entirely but in this book they are nothing like other series and for this they help make up a really interesting and enjoyable story. I can’t wait for the next book in this series and I have already preordered the kindle edition though I am hoping the Audible version will be released at the same time using the same narrator who does a fantastic job individualising characters and enhancing the story. I highly recommended this book series 🐨

Worth the wait!

Over a short amount of time, I powered through Mr McHugh's the last three books of Hellequin Chronicles and then straight on to the first book of The Avalon Chronicles. After reading A Glimmer of Hope and seeing that the second book was up for pre-order, I was extremely excited.

So I have finished A Flicker of Steel, and now want to read the next one... but I have to wait until November...

I guess I should start with this review. Where was I? Oh yes, A Flicker of Steel. FoS expanded a lot from the last one, it been two years since the previous book and is set after Scorched Shadows (So now I understand the timeline), we pick up with Layla as a full-time agent. As this expands what happened after the takeover (if you want to know more read Hellequin Chronicles) and catch up Tommy, Oliva, Cassy, Chloe and Harry.

Seeing how they have grown and have been dealing with this new status quo and how they all need desperately need a win. There is not much I can say about this book without spoiling the heck of it.

The growth of Layla from the first book to the end of this one was marvellous to watch. In the first one, she thought she was a monster like her father, in this one she has accepted that darkness exists within herself, but you don't need to lose yourself.

The book is action-packed and fantastic.

And again my hat goes off to Elizabeth Knowelden's narration as it allows the humour, excitement, emotion and characters come to life. Her skill to give the listener/reader the full picture from her use different tones, accents and pitch. Miss Knowelden is brilliant and brings the level of the book beyond five stars!

Just like Mr McHugh has written so far, every book builds on the previous books and finally this book it connects to the larger storyline. Which make me want to read the next book!

5 out of 5 stars! (With Miss Knowelden 10 out of 5 stars!)
