Blood of the Lost
- The Darkness Within Saga, Book 2
- By: JD Franx
- Narrated by: Simon Vance
- Length: 19 hrs and 46 mins
After escaping the horrors of Arkum Zul, Kael and his companions survive a terror-filled night on the ocean only to find themselves shipwrecked and stranded in the Wildlands. With forest tribals on the warpath and old enemies roaming the forest, Kael struggles to come to terms with what he is slowly becoming - a killer. A DeathWizard. In the fight against the evil that threatens to consume him, Kael learns that the Dwarven Mountains far to the north may hide an ancient monolith that holds the answer to the corruption that flows in his veins.
Worth a listen, struggled to finish

Almost a good book
I always love Simon Vance's narration. I somewhat enjoyed the first book, hoping the second would improve the overall experience. Unfortunately the constant author orchestrated BS just annoyed me. There's making a story into a weave of successes and defeats, but then there's this nonsense. I liked the characters but honestly didnt want to waste any more time going through the "oh but they were so close but then they missed each other" crap. Just feels so ham fisted.

- Spellmonger, Book 2
- By: Terry Mancour
- Narrated by: John Lee
- Length: 27 hrs and 23 mins
After facing a hopeless siege, an implacable foe and an impossible escape, you would think that Minalan the Spellmonger would be able to rest - but the armies of the undead goblin shaman Shereul (known as the Dead God to his human victims) are rolling over the western reaches of the rustic Duchy of Alshar and is headed toward the heart of the Duchy of Castal. Thousands are fleeing for their lives as hordes of goblins pour out of Boval Vale and devastate the rugged fiefs of the Alshari Wilderlands.
Decent but not as great as thr first book.

DnD esque fantasy with great story
it's a brilliant sequel, I love the style of two concurrent timelines which explains and frames each chapter before/after. helps me keep it all in me head. fantastic narration too
