Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters.
Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers.

Time presses against her: There is a force gathered in Whitebone that threatens to undo everything, should it reach the plains. The strange magic of the sun drains their strength, misfortune nips at their heels, but they are determined to save their friends. Good story. I was interested to hear what would happen next and looked for reasons to listen, however it did slow down a bit in the middle, but stick with it as it does take up again.
This story is not deep, so dont expect "Lord of the Rings", but enjoy it as light entertainment. I will be buying the next one. A reasonable story, very well read that will keep you going until the end. However, having made her two main characters too powerful, there were times where it felt like the author struggled to artificially limit them to preserve the tension, which often resulted in the characters forgetting to use powers they'd already shown earlier in the book, and which would have made light of the drama now unfolding.
There were also times it seemed like you could feel the editors touch, leaving it seem a little clumsy. Derek Perkins is great as usual Don't let the cover of the book hold you back. It did for me. I passed over it several times then finally took a chance on it. You'll fall in love with the characters as well as the adventure! Any additional comments?
At the same time leaving room for you to see each one of them as a large role in the story line Keeps you wanting more While I enjoy this series, it's focused more for younger readers I believe. There are too many coincidences and convenient solutions for a serious epic fantasy. If you go into it accepting that, it's a fun listen. The narrator is great though. It's been such an enjoyable series that I couldn't wait for my next credit so I took the time to purchase the next and last book that there is!

Well at least I hope it's not the last book! I really enjoyed listening to this book! You won't be disappointed! I'm not sure but I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
As a stand alone book I would not buy it. But it was acceptable because it was part of a series, plus it was an audiobook. There are two stories in this book. Kyleigh and Kael are in separate lands - traveling. Kyleigh is sort of taken prisoner by the Mots while Jake is healing. Kael is made into a slave with giants who are slaves. The author flips back and forth between the two stories. The stories dragged. But parts of them were kind of good - meeting some of the interesting characters.
I did not like one part. A couple loves each other but the author wants to keep them apart and therefore has one of them lie to the other. The lie did not fit motivations. It left a bad taste for me. See spoiler. B lied and said they did not love A. The lie was not honestly motivated. But even though the spells that bind him to his graveyard are weakening, they still hold him in place, buying her time to start gathering an army before he can break free.
