Mags returns to the Collegium, but there are mixed feelings--his included--about him actually remaining there. No one doubts that he is and should be a Herald, but he is afraid that his mere presence is going to incite more danger right in the heart of Valdemar. The heads of the Collegia are afraid that coming back to his known haunt is going to give him less protection than if he went into hiding. Everyone decides that going elsewhere is the solution for now. So since he is going elsewhere--why not return to the place he was found in the first place and look for clues? And those who are closest to him, and might provide secondary targets, are going along.
With Herald Jadrek, Herald Kylan (the Weaponsmaster's chosen successor), and his friends Bear, Lena, and Amily, they head for the Bastion, the hidden spot in the hills that had once been the headquarters of a powerful band of raiders that had held him and his parents prisoner. But what they find is not what anyone expected.

Emo Mags finally grows a backbone.

I was disappointed with this book. It didn't hold up. The main characters & story line go along at a good clip. Then suddenly comes an old stand by with a mysterious family member showing up out of the blue to help save the day. There are no hints to this person showing up. The main character's ability to sense mental energy is touted from book 1. That this mysterious person shows up, is a 'family' member with a totally simplistic view of life and goals is annoying. I got the feeling as in book 3 of this series the author is trying to fill pages, not write a novel. The ending of this book would have fit book 3 better. Do away with Book 3's ending and the remainder of book 4 or make them a series of short stories.
I listen to a variety of things, sci fi, horror, mystery, urban fantasy and so on. There is no way to predict what I will listen too next.
He characterises the main character well from book 1. I enjoyed his reading. His reading helped bring out things about the main character that I wouldn't thought about with reading alone.
The book was good until the halfway point. There it started to struggle to stay together. The last 1/3 of the book was a big disappointment. Nick Podehl's reading of the book is what kept me listening till the ending.
