Publisher's Summary

Elseerian, book one: 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. With hundreds of thousands dead, the races stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors in its wake. As the centuries passed, the holocaust faded into myth and legend. With the tale forgotten, the renewed signs go unheeded. Only a supreme warrior can stave off the inevitable, a warrior named Elseerian. For the killings have already begun....
The Gathering, book two: Born of darkness, the ultimate army has been unleashed. The only hope lies in destroying the source - before all life is extinguished. Fate has chosen Elseerian for the impossible feat, but as he embarks on the harrowing journey the invasion must be delayed. With time as their only weapon against extinction, the elves issue a desperate call...for every race to ally. Facing annihilation, many will realize that survival lies in unity, courage sleeps in ordinary citizens, and average people can turn the tide of war. The Gathering has begun.
Seven Days, book three: Forced to ally, the world has gathered against the endless night. Numbering over a million souls, they are the survivors of nations. They have armed themselves with weapons and magic and defend the strongest fortress ever built. Led by a supreme strategic mind, the races have organized into battalions, designed unique tactics, and fortified their position beyond any conceivable need. But now their foe is at their gates, and to a man they cling to the same hope - to survive until Elseerian can defeat the source. The best they can last is seven days....

Should have been classed as Teen Fantasy.

The Trilogy wasn't a bad listen but it was a bit too simple for my taste. I do wish that books such as these would be listed under the teen fantasy category rather than epic fantasy.

Great Story for Young Teens

If you could sum up The Chronicles of Lumineia Omnibus: Books 1-3 in three words, what would they be?

Great Teen Story

If you’ve listened to books by Ben Hale before, how does this one compare?

No

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

Great as always!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No

Any additional comments?

This book was a good story, but the interactions and character development are simple yet they work for the series. The book I believe would be a good read for teens because the battles while interesting have an innocent nature (limited blood, no brutality, etc.) that removes that adult/real-life feel to them. Good guys wear white and bad guys wear black. :)

Also, the people in the book fall easily to the paths of good or evil with no conflict, concerns or inner turmoil about their decisions.So again, good teen read or in my case a new author to try while I waited for the next edition to some of the titles I am curently following.

Intriguing, Inspiring, Edgy, Mesmerising

A great storyline with such a believable array of characters and worlds/lands. The storyline for each important character and the various important events is well developed. There's a lot of action, mystery and some romance. The thing I enjoyed most though was the strategic planning and the details of the strategic elements of the main battle - even though this is something most females would not find interesting, it is this aspect of the book that is most intriguing and intellectually stimulating. None of the heroes nor heroines in this story go unscathed and their characters and strengths are stretched and tested beyond unfathomable limits that leaves the reader in a cyclical array of intense emotions. The story may have been slow and dragging in a few places but such can be taken as a respite following or before heart-wrenching action. I like it most that you get to buy and read the trilogy at once, as an omnibus. I wish most SciFi books provided this option!

so predictable it was a bore to listen to

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not having such bland characters. I really cant stress just how average this was.

Has The Chronicles of Lumineia Omnibus: Books 1-3 put you off other books in this genre?

Not the genre but i will never listen to anything by this author again that for sure.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Wasn't too bad really

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

Should be a YA book. The story is so generic and bland. Kids will love it though because they don't have to think hard and its obvious from the start that the good side will win and how.
