Publisher's Summary

The assassination of heroes was once a warning... for an invasion that nearly destroyed the world. Nations were slaughtered, cities were erased from existence, and defending armies were crushed into oblivion. In weeks, all life stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors... and rumors. As the centuries passed the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. Across the southern sea a gifted young man is completing his training. To him the war is forgotten. To the world a warning goes unheeded. And the killings have already begun.

Adolescent novel?

Would you try another book from Ben Hale and/or Derek Perkins?

Ben Hale no but possibly Derek Perkins.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ben Hale again?


Any additional comments?

M-McCormick hit the nail on the head with that review. I got sucked into this based off the description and the fact it was a recommended listen. Wish I had never wasted a credit on it because I don't think I can even finish it. There needs to be some sort of age appropriate label on these books because this is clearly an adolescent novel. The Godling Chronicles is a similar read in its target audience but you would never know by the description. Anyone who compares this series to others such as LOTR or GOT is off their rocker.

Not what I was hoping for

What did you like best about Elseerian? What did you like least?

I enjoy a story that includes plot twist, character flaws, and a bit of angst, but I still want it to be fiction so that I can escape. This story was too straight forward. The characters were all too perfect and fixed in their stereotype. If there was a challenge, that challenge would be solved before the next one came up, I enjoy a challenge within a challenge and got none of that in this story.

The fight scenes were very well done and the author painted a good picture of this world and the story had promise, but it just fell flat for me.

Has Elseerian turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, for the most part this is my favorite genre.
