Inhaltsangabe

The White Tree (book one): In Mallon, the dark magic of the nether has been banned for centuries. Its users have been driven out or killed. Its secrets lost.

But the holy book of the nethermancers has just been found by a boy named Dante.

As he works to unlock the book's power, he's attacked in the street. The nethermancers aren't gone—and they want their book back. Caught between death cultists and the law, Dante fights for his life, aided by his growing skills and a brash bodyguard named Blays. Together they're drawn into a centuries-old conflict that brings Mallon to the brink of civil war.

Surviving won't be easy. But if they make it out alive, they'll step down the path to becoming two of the greatest warriors the world has ever known.

The Great Rift (book two): Dante and Blays have averted war against their new home of Narashtovik. But they didn't do so alone. It's time to repay their debts.

The norren who helped them remain enslaved by the Gaskan Empire. While arming the norren clans for rebellion, Dante hears one of them is in possession of the legendary Quivering Bow. If he can track down the weapon, it could secure norren independence.

But the wheels of war have already begun to turn. As Gask moves to crush the rebellion, Dante and Blays find themselves at the head of a campaign for survival—for norren and Narashtovik alike.

The Black Star (book three): Narashtovik has been saved—but Dante and Blays' friendship has been destroyed.

Blaming the Gaskan king for the loss of his love, Lira, Blays infiltrates the enemy nobility. There he schemes to bankrupt Gask and drive its ruler from the throne. But Dante's been waiting for Blays' return. If he finds and exposes him, Blays will be executed as a spy.

As they squabble, strange lights shine in the east. Harbingers of a long-forgotten threat. If the signs go ignored, Narashtovik will be annihilated by an enemy it never knew it had.

Mittelmäßig - höchstens

Viele positive Goodreads Rezensionen und ein super Preis haben mich dazu gebracht diese Serie zu kaufen. Ich ear leider überhaupt nicht begeistert. Die Charaktere fühlten sich nicht echt an, die Dialoge waren teilweise furchtbar, es wurden einige sehr moderne Begriffe verwendet und die ganze Geschichte fand ich auch eher langweilig. Ich habe ca bis Ende des ersten Buches gehört, bevor ich aufgegeben habe.

Ein rundum gelungenes Hörbuch

Wer ein wirklich gutes Fantasy-Hörbuch sucht das einen auch wirklich lange Zeit fesseln kann ist hier richtig. In angenehmem Pacing und ohne große Füllteile geschrieben, mit einem kreativen aber nicht zu abgehobenen Welt, sehr lebensechten Charakteren ein hervorragend gesprochenes Hörbuchjuwel mit 60+h Unterhaltungswert.

Wasn't for me..

If you like to facepalm a lot..then this one is for you. Story of the first book was for the most part ok. but the other two after that were boring for the most time. I was tempted to just start with another audiobook but instead chose to use this one when I go to bed to help me with my sleep and it most of the time worked wonders.
So my biggest problem with the story was to point one: the directions the characters take and at other parts where the auther just expands the story and fills it with meaningless stuff.. had to shake my head so many times during this and this lead to me writing this review (which is the first time ever and only because I disagree with the 4+ rating this series got) since all other fantasy books I heared here were mostly brilliant or at least 4/5.

best book I've had in a long time

exeptional worldbuilding, captivating charakters that give you their hand, draw you in and won't let go.

Herrliches Hörbuch

Der Stil ist anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Es wird alles nicht so ernst genommen. Die Geschichte umfasst drei komplette Bücher und ist damit im Preis/Leistungsverhältnis unschlagbar.

Spannende Geschichte

Die Charaketere waren insgesamt sehr realisitsch, die Geschichte ist spannend, ab und zu vorhersehbar, aber auf eine nette Art. Es war nicht zu leicht für die Charaketere, aber sie standen auch nicht immer vor unlösbaren aufgaben, bzw. sind nicht alle paar minuten beinahe gestorben. Ab und zu auch der ein oder andere Lacher, manchmal aber auch traurig. Insgesamt hat alles gut gepasst

reader good, but rest is awful

I could not finish it. the story was flat, the dialogue boring and snarky comments in every other reply. well placed sarcasm goes a long way at making the story entertaining but this was too much.

Godsdamn awesome!

The Cycle of Arawn is an interesting take on the fantasy genre, in the way that the main character learns and employs not-so-white magic towards reaching his goals. The audiobook has been absolutely captivating. The story gets a bit foreseeable towards the end but is all the more rewarding. Again, Tim Gerard Reynolds does an outstanding job at breathing life into the characters.
