The Legion of Flame: Book Two of the Draconis Memoria Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Legion of Flame is the action-packed second audiobook in the Draconis Memoria series - an enthralling epic fantasy of magic, adventure and the furious battle to forge an empire.
Claydon Torcreek has survived drake-infested jungles, hostile tribes and the cold touch of betrayal - yet his troubles have only just begun.
The legendary white drake - believed to be nothing more than a myth - has awoken from its long slumber, with a thirst to reduce the world of men to ashes. One city has already fallen to the drake's formidable legions.
More will follow unless Clay can uncover an ancient secret that lies buried beneath the southern ice. Once again Clay must face unthinkable danger, and this time he carries not just the hopes of his own nation but the fate of the entire world.

What I wasn't expecting was the increase in the scale of the conflict and this history behind it. Turns out this world has a lot more behind it than I thought and I really enjoyed that. Don't get me wrong, this is no Tolkien or Erikson, but I like when events from the distant past have an impact on the present day. The action is still good, not as much sea battles this time but still pretty good stuff and the story moves along nicely. Lizanne ends up in a prison city on a search for a missing person, I've seen this type of thing before but I really enjoyed those sections, I think it's because she is just so competent and confident in herself and her skills, no bravado or false modesty. Very refreshing.
The book ends on bit of a cliffhanger which I intensely dislike but luckily the last book is already out and I have it so no worries there. I am very curious as to where it is all going and sincerely hope the author lands this last book.
Ryan uses the now fairly established approach of alternating viewpoints and several interwoven storylines are carried forward at the same time. He is also fairly ruthless in wiping out large chunks of his creation to the extent that i started wondering if there is enough left to get to a satisfactory conclusion sion in book 3.
Nicely written and well developed characters. Maybe he is a bit over fond of castle-sized gateways to his cities. I had a bit of a sense in his descriptions of an online game where the structures are built from a standard set. Still the prison city was a nice touch.
Will definitely buy the next in this series.
It is a middle book and a lot is going on, but it rewards your concentration with truly epic fantasy. A word of warning, this would be a tough one to read with a delay between each book, I read all three straight after one another. You need to do this to keep tuned in to the characters, the story and a changing world. But it’s worth it.
The characters well developed and the plot multi-faceted.... every thread leading you further into the story. I am desperately looking forward to the next book, I enjoyed this one as much as the first. The Narator is excellent too.
Though the book was well crafted at times I felt it got lost in itself and had a sudden rush to finish. Clay's new world held lots of possibilities to explore. Lizanne character was harsh in her actions but brilliantly on point.
Loved the two books in the series and await the third with list of a blood thirsty drake!!
