Publisher's Summary

The world is on the cusp of destruction as Mordecai’s power grows beyond the limits of his own control, yet most of the powers that rule the world are oblivious. The only hope of salvaging their civilization lies with his children, but they have been scattered and branded outlaws. Meanwhile Tyrion continues to march toward his own goals, heedless of whether they will help or harm their efforts to stop the apocalypse, as even the Queen begins to doubt the archmage’s sanity. 

Mordecai is trapped by his own strength, a power too great to wield. Can his children stop the end of everything, even if it means sacrificing their father?

A satisfying end

The ending of Mordecai's tale was masterfully done. I was thrilled that unlike many series endings, it left little in terms of questions and no story left to tell. I'm a large bearded man that cried like a baby at the end, and realized I looked stupid. I guess stupid never dies.
Damn you Mordecai.

Excuse my languange

First I must say I drive trucks Audible has become a mental refuge of sorts. I love fantasy books something I discovered this as an adult . I started this story with embers the very beginning, In my Chad voice F U Michael G I felt every emotion possible as a whole that was a masterpiece of a story. I laughed I cried I cringed I yelled outloud my heart was broken when Penny died. Thank you!

mildly annoying

I really only finished this series because I had nothing better. it's not that it's bad it's just that, almost without exception, every problem the characters encounter were a result of one or more characters either never learning anything, or just deliberately being a liability.

like oh hey this wizard who can lay waste to his surroundings has asked me to leave I think I'll do the opposite, after all I'm a squishy thing that can't help him in this fight, but I can help the bad guy by getting in the way. said literally every other character in this series.

Or maybe "this guy can see the future and he gave me very specific instructions, but what does he know, I'm just going to do what I want because I love him and clearly becoming a red stain some where I'd what he wanted when he told me not to do the thing I'm about to do. "

Saddened to see the end of the series

I'm a really big fan of Micheal G. Manning and have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series of books. MageBorn Series Embers of Illeniel Series The Champions of Dawning of Dragons Series The Riven Gates Series Endings are tough and I cant say I loved this one , The second half of the book felt rushed or at least had a very large shift in story and feel, and realistically there should have been a 4th book to ease that transition better. At least it tied up most if not all story plots.. Although it almost felt like the plight of the characters through all the previous series became meaningless..

Simply, Amazing.

I have listened through this entire series 3 times over, from Blacksmiths son to Embers of Illeniel, and now this, I have never been so pulled into a series as hard and fast as I have with this one, this will forever be my all time favorite series. Manning has such a way with bringing characters to life and his world is rich with flavor and energy, so much so that I'd honestly compare myself to Marcus after the lady of the evening star left him, Empty. There will never be another series that's has made me cry, laugh, and feel triumphant as these books have done, so in a sense I curse you Mr. Manning and also thank you for bringing such an amazing world to life and allowing my imagination run wild and feel like a kid again.

Masterful end to an extraordinary story

I have been reading Michael work for some years beginning with The Blacksmiths Son. So it’s sad to see the completion of Mordecai’s storyAlex Wyndham has given yet another great performance complementing the story pace. What an Ending!
