Voechenka is a city under siege. Decimated by the Battlemage War, its restless dead attack every night, begging the living to join them beyond the grave.
Three survivors will fight to save the city. Tammy, whose investigation could rescue Voechenka from its grisly fate. Zannah, who must pay penance for her war crimes. And Balfruss: scholar, traveller and battlemage.

"Epic fantasy for readers who appreciate extra helpings of carnage with their backstabbing." (Publishers Weekly on Battlemage)
"Aryan's battle scenes are visceral masterpieces that transport the reader deep into the melee." (Taran Matharu, author of the Summoner novels)
"A vivid and rousing adventure with the kind of magic that punches you right in the face." (Jen Williams on Battlemage)
I've not read the print version but I'm a huge fan of Matt Addis as a narrator, he adds a lot to the story so I can't see the print version being better.
If you've read Battlemage and Bloodmage, this is closer to Battlemage, especially in terms of fighting, magic and violence. If you've not read books 1 and 2, fans of Brandon Sanderson probably will not be left too disappointed for story line and complexity of characters.
He has such a broad range, giving each race a particular accent. I think he suits a wide range and his female voice is pretty good (not that silly weak voice so many male narrators go with). To answer the question though, I've enjoyed his interpretation of Vargus throughout.
It's not really that sort of story.....
A good third book in the series. I liked it better than Bloodmage.
