The Second Draeken War has yet to occur, but his victory is assured. When all life stands on the brink the nations will be forced to gather but it will be too late. The army built to exterminate them will not fail in its purpose. Unless the future is altered. Eleven impossible tasks will give the races a singular hope, to defend their lives as one people. Their completion will not be known. Their impact cannot be measured. But even the Oracle cannot do it alone.

Why make a list?
To me this should have been the first book in the Lumineia series. This book introduces the reader to the characters and reason things are. Ben Hale pulls at your heart strings as the Auricle defies her position in order to set certain items into play before the world faces it's second Draccon war, a war to end all human life.
I loved Ianna. She possessed the ability to go forward, to never give up. She even defied the constraints of her position and feel in love with a "half-breed". She gave up her magical abilities in order to help save her daughter and the world.
I loved The Hunter. He was tasked with bringing the Auricle home -- dead or alive. But events happened that changed this man forever and set his course in a most unusual way...raising a baby with no mother's help.
I listened to this book while walking on my treadmill. There are so many times I laughed, cried and even caught myself holding my breath. Would they make it? Will the world be better off in the end?
as so many have said Derek Perkins has a marvelous control of his voice. He makes each character come alive by the inflection of his voice.
