I felt that this book was the best in the series Tied everything together great series for those 8 12 year old The Aedyn Chronicles Darkness Shall Fall series Tied everything together great series for those 8 12 year old The Aedyn Chronicles Darkness Shall Fall a story about Louisa Peter and Julia It is their uest to chase the shadows from Aedyn and return the rule of the Lord of Host Trapped on the island of Khemia surrounded by Gul nog monstrous creatures while the volcano continues to erupt they only know that a Talisman s fabled power is their only hope But why isn t the talisman working In the end they must decide who they can trust and find the strength to fight a battle they are sure to looseDarkness Shall Fall has an interesting story premise Even though I didn t read the first 2 books in this series I was able to understand what was going on Something in the way this book was narrated made it difficult for me to become invested in the characters Darkness Shall Fall seemed to be geared to a younger teen audience which might account for my difficulty with the narrative That being said I did find myself drawn in till of conclusion This copy was given to me by Goodreads F I received this book for free through First Reads "on Good ReadsFirst of all I would like to note that I didn t read "Good ReadsFirst of all I would like to note that I didn t read first two books in this series Darkness Shall Fall is the third book in The Aedyn Chronicles With that being said I was able to comprehend what was going on in the storyI could have done without the illustrations in the book though I understand that this series was made for a younger audience The narration kind of put me off in some spots but I pushed throughDarkness Shall Fall had a uniue story line but I couldn t uite connect with the characters perhaps because I haven t read the rest of the series It was well written and I enjoyed it well enough to finish it Unfortunately this book was a big flop It started off right where the preceding volume had ended which was a good thing because the ending of the previous book had been way too abrupt and we needed info on what happened to the characters I think probably Mr McGrath had originally written the two books as a whole single volume and then been advised to split them up for the sake of lengthSadly Mr McGrath appears to have been giving way to much too much advice in the writing of these seuels It is startling how inferior both the seuels were to the first book in the trilogy The Chosen Ones This makes me think that either Mr McGrath could not keep up the appearance of a superior author for long or that he is a superior author but allowed himself to be swayed by bad advice on the part of editors and agents I suspect the latter since Mr McGrath is unlike CSLewis a professor of theology and science and not a professor of English literature CSLewis was fairly comfortable in the writing world and familiar with most storytelling devices and traditions Mr McGrath is a newcomer to the writing world and not overly sure of himself He should have stuck to his previous formula of subtle religious allegory and sibling drama when he tried to branch out into teen angst in a ungle the result was disastrousThis last volume Darkness Shall Fall is even weaker than the second book in the series and that one had some serious problems Both of them feel like a clumsy effort at the typical genre fantasy story The religious elements are simplified and weakened so badly that the book could ust as well have been written by a Zoroastrian as by a Christian there is nothing uniuely Christia.

N about the concepts of darkness and light and these are all the concepts he offers in this book It s all oddly shallow and vague and unfortunately the much talked of Lord of Hosts never makes a single appearance Unlike Aslan who appears in every book this Lord of Hosts is obnoxiously uninterested in getting off his big rear end and helping his people get free from bondage You may say that in real life God doesn t make a physical appearance very often No He doesn t But what is the point of setting the whole thing in a fantasy world if abstract concepts like God are not allowed to make a concrete appearance on the scene otherwise how are you supposed to illustrate your ideasAnyway the religious areas are weak and oversimplified That s a big problem The worst faults however are the flat boring dialogue between flat boring characters who do not differ in any way from each other and the horrible angsty presentation of the stepmother and stepbrother They are cheap cartoon villains and their reformation at the end was abrupt unbelievable and sadly ridiculous Louisa s reformation was eually unexplained and abrupt We never explored her mind at all It s good that the author is willing to allow one of the cartoon villains to become a worthwhile person even a leader in the Lord s cause but we are never enlightened as to how this transformation took place She simply bounced from being a cartoon villain to a cartoon angel There was potential for a lot of drama between her and Peras the guy who masuerades as a messenger from God but who is proved to be a fake in the end but there was basically no drama at all between them Mostly we ust watched Peras "Tower Above Peter And Threaten Him On "above Peter and threaten him on raftOh and another thing Peter and the other Aedyn guys are terrified to death of this Peras because he s tall and strong like Thor Okay then He s tall and strong But that doesn t mean if they banded together they couldn t defeat him he s Thor after all not Planet Earth And why were they all thinking about resorting to cannibalism when their rafts were still not far from land Poor Mr McGrath how did you overlook these plot holesI could go on and on Julia s reflections about Gregory being attractive but too old for her were startling largely because until this point I had gotten the impression that he was only about Peter s age and that there was no attraction between him and Julia Probably Mr McGrath was advised to stick in some sort of romance and since he couldn t put one in between Louisa and Peras or Peter and Alyce he was forced to resort to a weird taped on relationship between Julia and GregoryOn top of everything else there was a curiously large amount of grossness the Gul nog were described in unnecessary detail and were extremely boring mindless villains We didn t get anything like the complexity or realism of villains like Jadis or Miraz here we The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States just watched a lot of trolls go to the bathroom on the ground and eat raw meat Boring and repulsive stuffPoor Mr McGrath You have not doneustice to your own abilities This book was pathetic The ending scene alone is enough to convince anyone That You Were Not At you were not at best when writing this it is shockingly dumb and unrealisticFrom a 4 star to a 2 star to a 1 star like a comet Mr McGrath descends to earth Sad stuff Darkness Shall Fall is the third book in The Aedyn Chronicles Trilogy I found the story interesting enough to keep reading to the end because I wanted to find out wha.
