With A Warrior's Path, Davis Ashura introduced fans to Arisa, an ancient world rich with history and myth where humanity struggles to survive the never-ending battle with the demon Suwraith and her hordes of Chimeras. Now Ashura's best-selling epic continues with A Warrior's Knowledge.
Rukh Shektan and Jessira Grey struggle to reach the OutCaste city of Stronghold before winter's snow bars all passages. Their travels test Rukh's will and hope as Chimeras hound their footsteps, but the most difficult challenge proves to be Stronghold itself. The city is not as Jessira described.
Rector Bryce and Mira Terrell form a reluctant alliance. Rector is forced to do the bidding of Dar'El Shektan - the man he betrayed - and works with Mira. They seek a means to bring down House Shektan's most bitter rival, Hal'El Wrestiva, the man responsible for Rukh's banishment. Meanwhile, Bree and Jaresh continue their search for the Sil Lor Kum. Danger lurks, and the withering knife murders continue as Hal'El Wrestiva, the SuDin of the Sil Lor Kum, furthers his own intentions.
And high in the heavens and watching over the world is Suwraith. Her clouded mind is clear for the first time in millennia, and she makes her own plans. The sorrow bringer has learned of Stronghold's existence.

"I've tried to like this series, but I'm done."
The premise is interesting, and the characters are almost compelling. They should be, but they're hampered by the lackluster editing and dreary internal dialogue. I'd be willing to bet that there are literally hours of wasted words of monotonous, redundant internal dialogue in this book. The characters' struggle with puritanism, morals and prejudices are extremely important to the story. I get that. But after being repeatedly hammered with it, I find that I'm simply wishing I could skip ahead to ANY type of action or substance. The author is so obsessed with the internal struggles of ALL of the characters that he often chops up the story, interrupts the time line, sidelines the plot and hijacks his own story just to get a few more licks in about how awkward everyone feels about everything ever. Perhaps early in book one this might've been useful. A reminder or three in book two would have sufficed. However, if you were to cut out all the internal struggle from this book it would be about half its length. I'm tired of swimming through mundane monologues of thought just to reach some type of story arc.
"I need the next one now!!!!!!!"
I just can't get enough. It's mesmerising absolutely captivating. I can only equate this story to George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. One you start you just don't want to stop. Also Nick Podehl narration is fantstic. he one the best narrators out their you should also have a listen to some of the other books he has done.
"The Enemy of My Enemy is my Brother!"
A warrior's Knowledge, Book 2 is an uplifting sequel!!
It begins where Book 1 left off. In this book plot ties made in the first book are strengthened. We get to know the characters more: some come through tribulation stronger and wiser while others completely give over to their darkest nature even knowing it leads to insanity.
I really grew to care for the characters especially Rukh and Ida.
Character development all throughout the book is strong. The chosen few that have accepted old enemies as "friends" and shared their mind with powerful wild beast slowly- through their actions and choices- begin to spread hope for a new more unified world. More and more people are asking themselves hard questions which begin opening up their heart for new ideas to take root.
I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud, cheered for those in peril and cried for those whom faced the end with courage.
Well worth a credit!
Narration was excellent! Story was hard to stop listening crazy cliff hanger at the end can't what until the next book
"Heros have unrealistic lack of confidence"
Needlessly wordy at times. Irritating how all protagonists constantly second guess themselves in whiney internal dialogue.
Those two issues detract from what is otherwise a decent story.
"Good Good Good"
I liked the building story. Hopefully this will not be a 10 book series. I really want to see how the queen is beaten down. The narrator grew on me throughout this book. I still have a problem with his voice performance of some of the women characters. In trying to sound feminine, it just sounds like a "flaming" homosexual instead of a lady, but on everything else I really think he does a better job than most I've heard. I also respect this author for creating a strong attraction between two characters without going to deep into details.
A promising story that turns into a teenage romance novel. Boring and poorly written aswell
"And I am Done"
I am giving up on this trilogy. Not enough action. Just dragged on and on.
This is a great sequel. Plots deepen and characters evolve in an interresting and enjoyful way. Narrator does a great job. He reads pretty fast, so I only upped playback to 1.25% on this book.
"The good, the bad, and the terrible."
The main antagonist is a spooky cloud god that cant be killed.
Children's stories and bad romance novels. The plots a bit unpredictable in the first book but becomes transparent and boring throughout the rest of the series.
He's and excellent narrator and managed to keep me interested in this series long after i normally would have left.
Book 1 yes, book two was like prime time television. it kept my interest but ultimately i knew i had better things to do with my time. Book three i regret even spending the two hours that i did listening to it. There are day time soap operas that are better written.
The author caught my attention in the first book. i really liked the primes of the casts and the armies of chimeras with he then lost my attention by making the main antagonist and insane spooky cloud ghost that cant be killed by the bad ass main character he spent most of the first book building up. also the fast that the author or narrator elected to use the word "Fort" instead of the word forte drives me nuts.
