So I saw this book on one of the offers that pop up in my emails and decided to give it a try . Generally I read the reviews for a new series/author and buy based on both the description and the reviews and in some cases based on just the narrator If it’s one that I’ve found especially good . This book totally caught me by surprise . It’s exquisitely well written . It’s fast paced , has plenty of humour and action . What really got me though is the author and indeed the narrators ability to make you care about the characters and both what happens to them and how they act . This author is one of those rare individuals with the ability to touch your core with his words . Something I’ve rarely experienced since my days of reading the stories of david gemmell.

I’ve now bought the rest of the series and will review each in turn and keep an eye out for anything else by this author . The narrator is also top notch and is certainly one to keep an eye out for .

Well this is my first time coming across this author . I must say I’m impressed. The story is told in a first person way that was different from what I’m used to but I found it worked perfectly for the story . It’s fast paced and the story is told in an entertaining and captivating way . The characters are well thought out and it’s easy to find yourself liking or disliking them as the author has wanted you to . The narration is top notch and works perfectly with the story . I’ll certainly finish the series and will be keeping an eye out for any other work by this author .

Action packed , amazing world building and a story that captivated you from start to finish

Now although I’m an avid fantasy reader , this particular type of book is something that I generally wouldn’t have chosen . I picked it based on the reviews and due to the fact that it kept popping up on my suggested titles . I’m really glad I did . From the first chapter you enter a world filled with characters that you can almost instantly feel connections with . The story is well written , the narration is top notch and the action sequences are well imagined and keep you guessing what’s going to happen . The very fact that you get 3 books for the price of one is good value and I’ll be downloading the rest of the authors work .

I would like to know if there will be further books following along with the same characters as without giving away any spoilers it’s left that there could easily be a few more books in the series .

All in all it’s an excellent read and well worth giving a try if you’re on the fence

I’ve been an avid fantasy reader for about 20 years “I’m only 29 so that’s a long time for me lol” I’ve honestly never come across this genre before . I stumbled across this author purely based on the fact that I’ve started listening to audio books while working and the narrator for these books “nick podehl” has become one of my favourite narrators whilst listening to some of the other work he’s been involved in. Can honestly say that these books have opened my eyes to a whole new genre of fantasy and that the author now has a fan for life. Great character building, great world building and a perfect mixture of humour and action that have had me chuckling to myself like a lunatic whilst listening. Also made a perfect choice in narrator. I’m nearly through book 4 and can’t wait to devour everything else the author has to offer .

I’m an avid fantasy reader . The last few months due to changing jobs and travelling a lot I’ve been listening to a lot more audio books while driving. I started this series 2 weeks ago and have blasted through all 3 audio books already . It’s really well written , fast paced at the right times and has the right mix of humour and seriousness to make it a really good story. The narrator for this is really good aswell. I’ve had books that could lose your attention due to bad narration before but this one kept me interested from start to finish. Looking forward to whatever this author brings out next .

Love the author and the story but this narrator wasn’t up to standard for me

I’ve listened to the previous 3 books in set in this world from this author back to back . I found myself captivated and enjoyed every minute of it . The narrator was excellent and the stories were well written and fast paced. I tried this one and just didn’t like the narrator. The story is still good but I found the narrator monotone and impossible to pay attention to. This could just be a personal issue to me with the tone of her voice but I had to return it on audible and will buy a hard copy instead .
