"Worthy but a bit repetitive"
I've been waiting for many months and was thrilled when I saw it finally show up in Audible.com. I wasn't disappointed and generally enjoyed the book but I was hoping for something less predictable. There was the usual encounters with other mages challenging Damien's abilities and authority and the subsequent near death encounters along with the political intrigue along the way but most of the characters, including Damien, seemed less interesting than in the previous books. Even the main antagonist was simple to determine very early on.
With that said, the writing was still very fluid and the narration still well recited (except for a nit with Damien sounding demanding and slightly arrogant even when he intended his declarations are meant to sound soft.)
"Obvious BUT Intense! When's the next book?"
The bad guys were obvious! The solution however was not. I'm looking forward to book 4!
"Just a lot of politics and a dumb plot"
I loved the two previous books about the jump mage and his powers. This one was about him corralling a bunch of politicians from starting a war. The plot was so predictable and the politicians were so stupid, in the end you wanted them to just get over it. All of this would be prevented if the politicians would speak to each other. Then there would be no book
"EXCELLENT. BRILLIANT WRITER AND WELL PERFORMED BY NARRATOR."
Wonderful! Damian Montgomery is soooo dynamic. I love his style and he is so matured in his handling of the case. He is very powerful and uses his power with wisdom. A truly admirable protagonist. I love this serie very much and Jeffrey Kafer is excellent in his performance of all the different character. I like Damian's voice, very confident. I hope Mr Glynn Stewart will continue this series for a long time. I will be waiting anxiously for book four to come out ASAP.
"great fiction "
good storyline, believable characters, and good narration.... so hurry up with the next book love it.
"Need the next book fast"
Great listen, I am enjoying this series and can't wait for the next book. Hope Stewart and Kafer work fast.
"Surprisingly Satisfying Series"
I have purely enjoyed every book in this series since I found it and the third installment is as good as the first. can't recommend this 3 book, so far, series. Please keep producing this quality and I will have no qualms but the wait for the next installment.
