    This is the last book in the Legend of the Gods series and starts off exactly where the previous book ended. Alana has escaped from her father, the Tsar, after the fight in the throne room and has been left wounded and alone. She doesn’t know where her brother Braidon is, nor if he is alive. The Tsars’ quest for dark magic and the power of the Gods to take over the word, is a world away from what Alana wants. Her father would sacrifice both of his children to gain more magic and power for himsel This is the last book in the Legend of the Gods series and starts off exactly where the previous book ended. Alana has escaped from her father, the Tsar, after the fight in the throne room and has been left wounded and alone. She doesn’t know where her brother Braidon is, nor if he is alive. The Tsars’ quest for dark magic and the power of the Gods to take over the word, is a world away from what Alana wants. Her father would sacrifice both of his children to gain more magic and power for himself. Devon, a huge warrior with a magical Warhammer (kanker) has lost his best friend in the confrontation with the Tsar and has escaped to the forests, where he comes across Braidon. Braidon and Enala had been flying on the back of a golden dragon to face the Tsar when last seen, from Queen Merydith’s home in the Northlands. An attempt to stop the Tsar before his army could reach the Northlands and the snow that would slow them down. There is no sign of Enala. Enala is the Tsar’s mother, Alana and Braidon’s grandmother. She has guided Alana to her location and safely steered her away from the Tsar’s men as she escaped. The Tsar used an immense amount of power and must build up his reserves again. The source of his power and magic is unknown, but will be revealed later in the book. Enala and Alana are now together and Devon and Braidon also, yet somewhere else. Their grandmother, Enala, is an old woman who is also a powerful magicker, and lost her brother many years ago whilst trying to stop the Tsar in his rise to power. Alana and Enala do not get on as Alana has two sides to her. The side where she did the bidding of the Tsar and acted as his enforcer, versus the side of innocence she obtained when her memories had been locked away. Two almost completely different people, but both within the same body. One forced to do things and growing to like the dark deeds, the other in love and innocent, just keeping her brother safe (she erased his memories as well to ensure the Tsar could not use his magic to trace them). There is also Quinn, one of the Tsar’s Stalkers, who hunt for those with magic and bring them back to the Tsar or kill them where they stand. After already betraying Alana and Braidon, the Tsar has set him on their trail again and he had better not fail this time! The Stalkers are trained magickers and fighters, but Enala was more powerful. Now Enala has to train Alana in how to fight, whilst Devon looks out for Braidon, until they all meet again. The Northland has to raise armies to march south to the Tsar and his army, but there is a lot of dissent among the Queens’s people and the various clans and tribes. Some see her act of kindness towards Braidon as a sign of weakness and an act that has doomed them all to attack by the Tsar. They gather those they can and set off. Devon has a large part to play and has to make a stand. But can he, a normal mortal succeed against the eternal power of the Tsar? A great story, which puts all the pieces from the previous books, Oathbreaker and Shield of Winter, together and shows us what happens to the remaining characters as they join up to face the Tsar and the power of the Gods. It’s a book you don’t want to put down until you reach the end and need to allow a large chunk of time to work your way through it. There are more surprises to come and secrets to be uncovered. But the final battle is a work of genius. Each side bringing different skills to the table and subterfuge winning out. The three Gods, Jurrien, Darius and Antonia finally getting their peace. For those interested, the prequel series is The Sword of Light trilogy and the author also has another series called The Praegressus Project, which was my introduction to the author’s books and is still my favourite so far, although these are really good as well. I received an ARC copy of this book from the author and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above.

    And so it ends. So much has happened since I returned to the incredible world of Aaron Hodges’ Legend of the Gods series.

I’d been to the Three Nations fictional world before, having read a half dozen novels are some novellas set here (I highly recommend the precursor series, Sword of Light, by the way), so I was ready for this fantastic example of world-building and expected great story-telling. This trilogy delivered and Dawn of War, it’s concluding book, answered all questions. From Merydith’s backstory, how Alana and her brother Braidon, Elana (her grandmother), Merydith, the three Gods the Tsar all fit into an incredible weave, to an amazing ride ending in a grand battle of a conclusion the book gave me everything I wanted. Wonderful characters, both major like Alana, her brother and grandmother, Merydith, Devon and lesser (Helen and what remained of her Magickers, and so many more). A fantastic and totally satisfying even if extremely bittersweet conclusion (no I will not give any hints to spoil it) this is totally powerful and satisfying. Well worth the read. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises - the book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to highly recommend. I’m just hoping that another series will come along, as there’s still room in the ending for more tales left to explore in this fantastic world.

    This concludes Aaron Hodges Legend of the Gods trilogy. When it started I enjoyed the relatively small scope the author seemed to have in mind, and yet as the trilogy has proceeded Hodges' vision has unfolded to be quite epic. This last book was quite a ride, picking up pretty quickly and keeping the pace unrelenting until the end. It is a brutally straight-forward narrative, with the antagonist using his powers to the fullest to reach his ends. I never had a moment where I thought "Oh, if only This concludes Aaron Hodges Legend of the Gods trilogy.

I never had a moment where I thought "Oh, if only he had done this thing-which-makes-complete-sense he'd have destroyed them..." The plot and characters were well-thought-out and felt sensible and accessible. As a conclusion to a trilogy, I thought Hodges wrapped up everything he set out in the previous two books. I would recommend reading them first rather than just jumping in on this story. Some of the story arcs and character development can not truly be appreciated without walking through the story. That said, it's a well-written book and quite enjoyable. [note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review]

    The third and last book in the Legend of the Gods series ended with a sad but satisfying conclusion. This book picks up right were the second book ended. A lot of the subplots were tied up in this book, character's true motivations revealed. The action is fantastic, really drew me in and had me eagerly turning the pages. Really loved the twists in plot and there was almost a crispness to the characterisations in this book. Like they'd all finally come into their own, and not just main characters The third and last book in the Legend of the Gods series ended with a sad but satisfying conclusion.

It is possible there could be another book, but I enjoyed the ending no matter whether there is another, everything did feel finalised. If you want action, adventure, magic, fantasy and dragons, as well as a strong main character then these series are for you!!

    Dawn of War is the third and final book of an epic fantasy series. It is the only book in the series that I have currently read or listened to, but I hope to change that, because it's a really good book. I became thoroughly involved in the story and left it wanting more. I had to play catch up a bit in the beginning of this book, so I'd recommend starting at the beginning of the series instead, if possible. The book contains violence and some mild sexual situations, but no actual sex. I'd probab Dawn of War is the third and final book of an epic fantasy series.

The narrator does a very good job bringing the book to life. I received a complimentary copy of this audio book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    Dawn of War is Book 3 in the Legend of the Gods series. We say farewell to this excellent series with strong well-developed characters and world-building. This was an attention getting, page turning adventure with lots of action, twists/turns, and a heart-breaking ending. It is quite sad as we know there are casualties in war and not all survive. The narrator, David Stifel, brought the story and characters to life so you were able to relate to them and feel their emotions.

    What a great trilogy! Aaron Hodges did a great job with bringing these characters to life. The ending was satisfying and realistic. Not everyone lives, which is realistic in war. I loved this book and this trilogy. He does a great job with setting up the characters, so you feel their ups and downs. I could not put the book down! Great job!

    Oh, to have love, lose love, and have it again then it's gone, heartbreaking. Alana and Braidon was daughter and son of a great, powerful Tsar. He wanted to take all the magial power he could to be a God. A ruthless person who said he loved his children but that remained to be seen. This book is a good book to sit back with a cup of coffee or tea and read.Strong characters, good book. Oh, to have love, lose love, and have it again then it's gone, heartbreaking.

    What an ending! Aaron has outdone himself with this trilogy. It has everything, Gods, Dragons, Magic, the good, the Bad, and the Ugly, all wrapped in a world of plot twists, war and intrigue. You will find love, lose it find it again , lose it again with all the emotional upheaval to go along with all that. You will be lucky if you can put it down before you finish, I couldn't.

    I loved this series with it twists and turns and lots of adventures. I found I fell in love with most of the characters but who couldn’t. But the last 30 minutes of the book has most twist and turns of all, with some sad endings but also in a way a peaceful ending for one character. I’m not giving spoilers so if you want to know more I suggest you listen to or read this great series

    This is the epic conclusion to the Legend of the Gods series! It’s full of action as events lead toward the final battle against the Tsar. Devon and Braidon trek through the forest toward Trola as Alana learns to settle her differences with Enala. In the meantime, Queen Merydith and the Northlanders are determined to put an end to the Tsar’s reign of terror.

Devon and Braidon trek through the forest toward Trola as Alana learns to settle her differences with Enala. In the meantime, Queen Merydith and the Northlanders are determined to put an end to the Tsar’s reign of terror. The characters have grown so much over the last couple books, and they really branch out in this final volume! Braidon starts to come into his own and learns to fend for himself, Alana struggles to reconcile her two selves, and Devon has to decide if he can overcome his sins of the past. You learn more about the past and how the Tsar came to be so evil and as the story progresses all my questions were answered and the sub plots concluded. The end is satisfying but bittersweet, but I won’t say more than that. In amongst the action, there are some deep thoughts on whether war is ever necessary and on the meaning of family which add an extra layer to the story. As usual the world building is excellent and I always enjoy learning more about the land of The Three Nations! Overall this is an excellent read, and I highly recommend it! I listened to the audiobook version of this book and I loved the narrator! He does an excellent job and he really suited the story!
