I really liked the story but in the end it seems blatantly dragged out in order to sell multiple books, this sadly seems to be happening more and more these days and frankly it is not only annoying but seriously Hurts the overall story because waiting for the next book usually leaves me trying to catch up with where the story left off and remembering characters names and situations and such isn't always easy. It's sad because if this was a single book I know I would have LOVED it but broken up like this for bigger profits in my opinion destroys the flow of the story especially one with so many important characters and plots.. That's just my take on what I fee is obvious ploy to squeeze more profits out of every story.. And it's negative effect on the Worlds the writing is trying to transport us to! You be the judge!

But the 4th book could have been better.
There are four books in “The Trysmoon Saga” series. They are one long story. Be prepared to read them all. The four books in order are Ascension, Duty, Hunted, Sacrifice.
5 stars for Ascension. Exciting wonderful journey following Gen an orphan. The evil local magistrate bullies and harms Gen and others. Warlord Khairn comes to town killing many. Khairn forces Gen to learn to fight. There are magical creatures and healers in this world. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings with a little Harry Potter.
4 stars for books 2 and 3, Duty and Hunted. Still very good as they continue Gen’s story.
3 ½ stars - maybe 4 stars for the last book Sacrifice. There were sooo many battles and journeys. The main characters fight, flee and survive one obstacle, then an emergency happens and they are fighting something else. I was getting a little weary of battle after battle. But the overall story and how it ended was worthwhile. The evil god Mikkik was close to destroying all the good in the world. The epilogue was fun and very feel good.
Simon Vance is excellent. And he does females well.
Narrative mode: 3rd person.

It was good to find a series that was complete before I started to listen as It gave continuity. I hope to find others as good for future listening .The hero was easy to like and care for and if the ending was not exactly the one I hoped for it was the most logical.
Any additional comments?
Taking all four books together, its not bad at all, its not a patch on the 1st law, or Demon Cycle, but its better than a lot thats out there. Only issue is the fact it is split into four books, is it really worth four credits? No! if this was one book, even two then I would have been much happier, as it is, its a bit off a rip off!
