"The humans are weak. Their skin is soft, and their minds dull from years of safety. We are the vicious. We are the destroyers. Come the full moon, when our goddess watches our victory, we will taste of their blood!"
Wolf-men, savage creatures given humanoid form in an ancient war, mass along the Gihon River. Led by their pack leader Redclaw, they seek to cross the river and claim a land of their own, slaughtering those who would stand in their way. Two paladins, Jerico of the god Ashhur, and Darius of the god Karak, must lead the desperate defense against the invasion. Their friendship will be tested as their gods resume an unending war, and their very faiths call for the death of the other. Together, friend or foe, they must face Redclaw's horde.

I love the Paladins and it was the first thing I found of Davids when I got my Kindle. Its a decent shortish book but David's writing has got better in his more recent books.
I found the performance a bit of a struggle though I did get more into it later on.
Well worth reading the book and an ok listen on audible but Skyborn was much better overall.
"Cool New Fantasy Series!"
There is plenty of action, interesting characters, and a rich well develop world to enjoy with a very good narrator.
The complicated friendship between the two paladins of opposite faiths. They should be sworn enemies but in the little backwater where they are they have come to be friends.
He has a rich voice that is well suited to this story and world.
No I wanted to listen to it slowly to draw the experience out slower so it would not end to fast to enjoy it as long as possible so I don't have to wait for the next installment as long.

"Really a 4.5"
I like it when a book exceeds my expectations. I've never listen to Mr. Smith before. I thought he did a wonderful job. I like the contrast between the paladins' religion. I look forward to the next book. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
This was a very good book! Interesting characters, lots of action, and a great story line makes for a very interesting read. The narrator did a very good job. Can't wait to read book 2!

"Medieval weapons vs werewolves, I like it."
I liked that despite the main storyline, there was so much more going on elsewhere. Even though these people are in for the fight of their lives, they are still only a small town in a very large empire.
When one of the characters learns that his idea of faith, is actually not faith at all. * Sorry to be vague I didn't want to give out any spoiler's
Solid, fluid, unique
It takes faith to fight unimaginable horror.

"Werewolves and Paladins! Awesome!!"
I have read some books by this author but this was the 1st of his audiobooks I've listened to. Really great book. The epic world development is spectacular. The pantheon, the monsters and the heroes all mixed with the common towns people. Really great story and can't wait to see what happens from there.

Well written with a nice cliff hanger at the end. Great narrative and well spoken. Wolves gone what is next hopeful to see.
I was given this book free for my review and it is a great story.
