These books have several good elements in them, such as, the world building, the interesting magic system and the individual character stories. But, there's so much battle and struggle struggle that it gets bogged down and a bit tedious, at times. The situation with Amber is kind of ridiculous. She's smart and capable, but she's a sorceress and she never has any of her sorceress'a gear with her, so she's really just a normal person. It's kind of weird. What's the point of her even being a sorceress? At least she is a good character, intelligent and capable. Overall, these books are okay. I'm always curious where the story is going, even though sometimes it's obvious. It would be nice if they were a little faster paced.

Narrator was great and probably made the story seem better. In this book much more than previous ones, there are so many plot holes, the thing is like Swiss cheese. I was still sucked in and wanted to find out what happens, or how it happens in the case of predictable parts. I feel like any book that keeps me going back to it gets 3 stars, even if it drives me a bit nuts.
Path of the Storm is the best of the trilogy so far, in my opinion. So often with trilogies the books get worse as the series progresses, but Maxwell seems hellbent on breaking that rule.
The aftermath of the war and realisation that one of the feared Evermen has returned adds a new dimension to the plot. Ella's insistence, even when others beg against it, to find a way to bring Killian back sees her gaining help from a source that, ordinarily would be seen as unthinkable.
In my last review I stated how Maxwell expanded his world, showing new lands and people. This time he's done it again, but on a far grander scale. The exploration into both the past and the present lands of his world make this book as enthralling as the plotline he has drummed up with the returning Everman.
All in all, this is a solid book and one that should not be missed.

if it was a book it would be"unputdownable"- so as an audiobook I suppose it must be "unstoplisteningble!" great
