Publisher's Summary

A new series from the world of The Chronicles of Lumineia.
The Last Oracle, book one: Forced into hiding, the mages of Lumineia have been forgotten. In their absence the world has become known by another name: Earth. The humans have flourished with time, unaware that The Last Oracle is destined to unite them. At her touch magic will be unbound and known again as truth. But an ancient war harbors a deadly secret. Draeken, the Lord of Chaos, had a second apprentice, one who became trapped with the defeated fiends. Fueled by revenge and dark magic, he has mastered a power that Draeken himself could not, and the time is fast approaching for it to be unleashed. The Dark is waiting....
The Sword of Elseerian, book two: Led by the mysterious Master, the Harbingers have infiltrated the highest levels of the mage government. They mean to reveal the mages to the world - and then conquer it. To that end they have stolen the Sword of Elseerian and intend to open the portal to Draeken's vast army. But the fiends are gone. In their place another entity lurks. Caged for eons, the Dark feeds on fear...and light. If unleashed on Earth, it will devour every spark of illumination until mankind is left in darkness absolute. Madness and terror will rob men of their minds. Each will become an extension of the Dark, flesh without a soul. The Oracle and her allies have a desperate plan to retrieve the Sword of Elseerian before it can be used. If they fail, the Dark will be released. And the day will have its last dawn.
Descent unto Dark, book three: The Dark has been unleashed. Impervious to mage or man, its almighty power is matched only by its hunger. Unchecked it will devour the planet...until even the dawn is extinguished. Human and creature alike will become twisted, beasts slaved to the Dark's will. The leash is held by the Harbinger Master, who requires a simple offering to stay the impending slaughter. Obedience is absolute.

I wish they would label things as young adult.

TECHNICAL: Invisible as it should be.
PERFORMANCE: It was OK. I didn’t really find the characterizations as particularly listenable. (Maybe it was partially the fault of the dialog.) Still; consistent, clear diction helped the performance.
STORY/AUTHORCRAFT: It was OK. It had a young adult twang to it. (JK Rollins books managed to not have that kind of feel.) The dialog was somewhat stilted. Story line was a bit slow. I have no desire to go any further into the series. But I didn’t hate it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is a great story. Entertaining and emotional- it reminds you of other young adult fantasy works while still remaining highly unique and interesting.

What other book might you compare The White Mage Omnibus: Books 1-3 to and why?

In certain aspects it reminded me of the cycle of arawn and the harry potter series. Many themes cross over from HP but the story's uniqueness in terms of fantasy elements is very close to the cycle's own elements.

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

Variance in voices and tone was well conveyed for the most part. Derek handled accents of different characters well without allowing them to overshadow what was being said. Female voices were done convincingly and naturally.

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

There were many but in the interest of not providing any spoilers I'll leave it at Tess and Iris's friendship. The fact that the two are so incredibly different and eventually come to love each other as sisters was absolutely lovely.

Any additional comments?

I sincerely hope the rest of this series is released on audible. Originally I was skeptical about the series as I thought the story would be juvenile due to the age of the main characters but it is anything but. All of the main characters are written as amazingly human and even those who fill a bit of an archetype are still unique in their own ways. If the great story itself isn't reason enough to release the rest of the series I think Derek Perkins' performance puts it over the top as an amazing audible experience.
