Publisher's Summary

It is a fool's errand, and Tallos knows it, but against his own better judgment and the pleading of his wife, Tallos has committed himself to a voyage north. His lifelong friend's eldest sons are said to have been taken by Northmen, a raiding people ill-reputed for their savagery. The boys are already dead, Tallos knows, and in that dark place of grim reasoning he wishes only to find their corpses quickly so he can fulfill his promise and return to his wife. Instead, he finds something far worse.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Bit boring"

    I found the story to be quite middle of the road and the narration lacked energy. I didn't connect with many of the characters either.

    "Good book"

    I like this book it has the feel that it's building on to something much bigger and great, that is also the reason I marked it down as it kinda feels like the book before the book and it's just a book to lay the foundations for the next one.

    I will defiantly read the next book

    "Excellent"

    Some have said in their reviews that this story hops around a bit and it made it a little difficult to follow. I must disagree on the final point. It does pop around chronically, but that does NOT deter from the over arching story.
    It has a touch of GOT in that there a several leading characters all following their own paths that will undoubtedly intertwine.
    Well Written, Well Narrated thoroughly enjoyable

    "a good story"

    I enjoyed this book even though it is blatant plagiarism of asoiaf, still it was an interesting listen and the twists and turns of this medieval fantasy had me gripped, I'm looking forward to
    the next installment of the series.

    Story
    "Better than expected; awaiting book 2"

    Sometimes you take a risk with an unknown author who has an unknown book based on their reviews on Amazon and Audible. I did so here and felt richly rewarded. Some criticize the many POV chapters and multiple characters. I would suggest being patient allowing the story to develop. This story has many plot twists and great action. The characters are well developed and draw you in to a complex story. The narration by Matt Cowlrick was excellent. Highly recommended were fans of George RR Martin.

    Story
    "Loved it."
    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write reviews yet I notice many people who did NOT actually finish the book reviewing it.
    "Everyone dies" is a crock you will see people saying yet i promise you no main character really dies in this. Yes people die, but the foundation characters stay in place and go on to develop well. The father and the two north men sons are awesome and the tracker dog man from the village that the title speaks is also glorious. The title makes you also despise characters much like the boy king from GoT. This is an in depth book and not for the feint hearted, but well worth the time spent. LOVED THIS BOOK.

    "Move over Martin"
    Where does The Axe and the Throne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my honest opinion, I feel Ireman has the complete potential to dethrone Martin. Just don't keep us waiting like the latter! Excellent book, was an absolute joy to listen to. This may be one of books (that I can count on one hand) that I will listen to more than once.

    You know this was a good title because I was sad that it only had 105 chapters.

    I started this book a little skeptical. But as the story progressed, I found myself itching for more of the story to be developed. Can't wait for book 2!
