I had this book in my library for a while and kept bypassing it
yesterday I started listening
now I'm so glad I didn't listen to it before cause it is a brilliant find. now I'm off to start book 2 and sleep will just have to take a back seat
no spoilers from me
It is well worth getting

this book really took me by sirprise
i was searching for a book to buy and thought i had allready read most of the good ones
i bought this one without expecting too much
but it really blew me away and robbed me of sleep.
brent weeks has a great trilogy about a fighter and this surpasses it
if you like michael j sullivan you will love this
i love brandon sanderson and i really found this book to my taste.
so if u like any of those authors or gentlemen bastards series or the name of the wind which are classics then this book will grip you as it has kept me ip till 4am and now im going to download the next installment
note to other reviewers. note that there are no spoilers and that i have not used all the bull jargon that some can not stop using ...
trying to make it look like they are so clever...
these are fantasy fiction not shakespere
we love them cause they are exciting ,mystical and they provide us with an escape where our minds can leave our surroundings and enter the fantastical tales that these authors have created
we are not reading these books to be educated and we are not afraid (most of us) to admit that
we are here because these books are fun and we love them
so please please review without spoilers or be so patronising and trying to review like your english teacher is marking u.
be real
THIS BOOK IS COOL

great story
it was a really hard listen due to the naration
i will check before i buy any more audio books to make sure i never have to review a great story like this
i really recomend all of jeff wheelers books
his other 3 trilogys are outstandingly good and brilliantly narrated

good

story is great but alas like others have said in other reviews the narration in this one is not up to the usual standard
book 1 was narrated by the guy that did the gentlemen bastards books so the bar was set really high for book 2 in this series
this narrater is pitchy squeeky and seems to use angry voices for no aparent reason
the start of each chapter starts with a passage from the archivist and altho its the same archivest she narates it in diff voices for some unknown reason this makes it confusing when depending on audio
also the prince in book 1 was a levelheaded softly spoken intelligent character but in this narration he seems to say everything in a really angry way
the same for his meek adoring cousin who for some reason gets a wicked witch voice
it seems that angry voice is the default setting in this narration so it is not a good pre bedtime listen as it will not soothe you
pitchy and scratchy
i really hope this series becomes availabewith someone like the female narater of the other books by mr wheeler
she was great

Earth shatteringly good.

If u like Michael Sullivan or robin hobb or Brandon Sanderson then u are in for a real treat u will prob finish the entire series in less than a week and sacrifice a lot of sleep
This is one of those for fantasy lovers that when u are finished u wish u could delete your memory of it and listen to the whole thing with fresh ears again and again
I will be watching this author very closely for new works
I hear there is another trilogy and it has a lot of the characters so that's my next listen
This and the seven isles series are the best listens I've had so far this year and I don't normally take the time to review although I have over 100 fantasy titles in my audio library
