Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters.

He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

After the thrilling cliff-hanger at the end of book two, we rejoin Fletcher and his friends in the ether, where they must undertake a mortally dangerous quest, all the while avoiding capture by enemies and facing foes more terrifying than anything they have yet encountered. But this is nothing compared to what truly lies ahead for Fletcher, as his nemesis, albino orc Khan, is on a mission to destroy Hominum and everything and everyone that Fletcher loves.

I really enjoyed this book and hope there will be more like it.

The characters where just like how the gaming community is using the right jargon and you really get stuck in with the story I found it so relatable.

Wil Wheaton I found did an expert job when I saw it was him narrating the book I had my doubts but should of just bowled right in. And no pint did I feel like he was just drowning on but thought he enjoyed reading it too.

On trial for a crime he did not commit, Fletcher must face the Inquisition, who will decide his future. The process is grueling, led by those who will do anything to see him suffer and haunted by ghosts from the past with clues to Fletcher's tragic origins.

These books are amazing they keep you on edge the hole in the demons sound beautiful can't wait for the next one in the series will be mine as soon as it available.

Only have on criticism is that there is to long in between chapters I think my app has stopped working it's 4/5 second till he stops narrating and it starts again

But apart from that it's totally worth the listen.

When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk! After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturns moons, wearing a lady's pink crimplene hat and a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of "Emily Berkenstein". Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea.

The Mighty Boosh is unlike any show you are ever likely to hear, and one that defies description; the closest you could get to the unique style of Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding would be in the early days of Reeves and Mortimer, with their cardboard props and men with sticks.
