For their support, the elves were granted an audience with the king. Yet great deeds could not undo the past, or change the prejudice of men. Elves and men are enemies, as it has been through time. The Alder King had his own concerns. The kingdom alliance was shattered. An ally, and a great king was dead. War between the kingdoms seemed inevitable. If there was any hope of restoring the alliance, he must rid the kingdom of the enemy's spies. But was such a thing possible without the backing of those he needed the most?

Add this to your must read list!
Robert Stanek is a very gifted story-teller. The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches IV is the last book in a great series. This is a must have for your audio collection. I have read all four books, and I could not put them down.
There's a lot to like in these books from magic and mystery to ingrigue and mayhem. The characters are what I truly like that in a series. With the many characters it is hard to pick a favorite. They are all well done. I especially like how Adrina, Vilmos and Seth go through so many changes and come out the better for the wear.
This book with the other three parts offers the opportunity to live for a time in a fascinating world and well described world. I feel as if the world is a place right around the corner from my house that I wish I could reach.
Unlike some books, these books aren't thin on plot either. The plot has plenty of twists and turns, and I was never able to guess exactly what was going to happen. Definitely something you can listen to again and again.
To concluse, this is a satisfying conclusion to a great series. Start at the first one and keep going until this one. It is well worth it.

This is a great series!
I just finished the series. This fourth book is as well written and entertaining as all the others. I have nothing but high praise for the author. The narrator is good throughout. I am amazed by how much I care about the characters. I am going back to listen to the whole series again.

My favourite of the four
We got in a bit of a bun fight over who would listen. It's hard not to want to join in. It's also remarkably difficult to put this book down, as it flows so well. My only criticisms are that book one is rather like a prequel. The story is incredibly absorbing and exceptionally fulfilling to read. You always want to know what?s going to happen next and the story just keeps building and building. At no point does it disappoint or ebb. There are lots of books I have read and enjoyed, but these really stand out from the crowd. They were a real pleasure to 'read'.
