Things are not well within the Lodrak Empire. An entire city goes up in smoke and ash, and an entire province is slowly being consumed by an ever-expanding cloud of death. But while the humans rally to contain the fallout of this disaster, they are much quicker to pin the blame for it on their elven neighbors to the north. With centuries' worth of strife and bad blood between the two nations flaring up, all out war is rapidly becoming an inevitability.

Jeff Hays performance is excellent, and truly makes the story come to life. Voices remain consistent throughout, with male, female and monster characters all sounding authentic.

The story of Boxxie continues in the shapeshifters inevitable style. It is unfortunate that Neven Iliev feels it necessary to include sordid misogynistic scenes, which do little for the story. They will appeal to a certain target audience admittedly, but at the expense of alienating a large proportion of potential readers. This is a shame, as the author has many excellent ideas, and puts them together in an interesting and well told format. Compared to the previous titles in this series, the scenes are less frequent.

Well worth listening to - if you are able to look past the fantasies of a pubescent teen.
