Publisher's Summary

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler’s epic Harbinger series comes to a breathtaking conclusion as two women are swept into a battle that could destroy two worlds.

Rescued from a world of poverty, Cettie Pratt has avoided a bleak destiny - until now. Deceived and manipulated, she has been groomed for the ultimate betrayal: to destroy her best friend and stop peace from uniting two war-torn worlds. Her path leads her to a mysterious underworld where appearances can be deceiving. 

Sera Fitzempress knows the value she has to her enemies. As heir to the empire, she must keep her foes at bay and prevent them from unleashing a being of unspeakable evil upon the world while fighting a brutal war. But her enemies are more cunning than Sera expects, and the key to their plans is none other than her best friend. 

Neither woman knows what to believe. Neither one knows if she can trust the other. Both Cettie and Sera have made decisions that have irrevocably changed them. But the decisions they have yet to make will determine the fate of their world…

felt rushed

I have loves every single book he has wrote. Thos one was just as good, just felt too tied up, a little rushed and not as detailed as the rest.

Finished but Rushed

First let me say I like this series. it's not the best or most robust fantasy series I've ever read but it is a good easy listening unique storyline. However this book I feel like did not do the prior books justice. The writer seemed to grow tired with the storyline and just wanted to wrap everything up in a nice as basket as possible and finish it. It seems like every page was another bland ending to a very interesting story arc. Even the way it opened seemed to be a cop out for having difficulty fully explaining the magic system of this book. I was able to finish it although with more difficulty than the other books and walk away from this series feeling no loose ends. However, perhaps I've been spoiled with the elegant storylines of Sanderson, Rothfuss, Abercrombie, Lynch etc but I was left wanting more from the book not just epiphany moments to finish it.

Magnificently Moving

This book is simply wonderful, albeit the conclusion seemed a but rushed, there are so many questions that are left unanswered.

Broken veil

This is a great book, I loved the subtil references of how life is not all hot all hot or pain but a mixture of the two.

Feels incomplete

Love Jeff's work and Kate is my favorite narrator to date. This series end felt rushed, like there is story missing that would add more invite and clarity to the story. Good overall.

A decent ending

This last book was decent but started to get a bit too religeous at the end in my opinion.

Could not finish this book

I have enjoyed Jeff Wheeler’s books very much and l think I’ve listened to all of his others.. I assuredly did not enjoy this one. The author seems obsessed with torture and punishment. I simply was not entertained or relaxed by the word pictures of one of the protagonists bound and gagged for most of the first half of the book. I had to stop at that point and call this audio book a bad investment. Too bad. The worlds Wheeler has built for us are wondrous, brilliantly imagined and highly entertaining. With this novel, his macabre outlook has broken his contract with his readers. If l wanted to read horror, I’d read Stephen King. I doubt that I’ll buy any future books of Mr. Wherler’s. Kate Rudd remains an outstanding narrator.

best in the series!

I've enjoyed all the harbinger series so far, but this is the best yet. It was gripping right from the very beginning and more so as it went on! No words were wasted on long drawn out, irrelevant conversations etc. It was all go. Jeff Wheeler is a magical wordsmith, dragging you into the action, making you share Sera's and Ceti's emotions as they face challenge after challenge. The only downside was that, due to some technical hitch, I was unable to download the audible narration to any of my devices and had to listen on Audible. It was an excellent read/listen, and full marks to the narrator, who left you in no doubt as to who was speaking and drew you into the emotions. At the end, there was a hint that the series might continue. I do hope so

Insonsistent and thinly veiled religious twaddle

Deus Ex Machina is present and corporeal in the last of the series, enjoys suffering unnecessarily.
