The Mitherfickers are back and ready to bring the fight to the Shinigami! But before they can do that, they need an audience with the Knights of Non Compos Mentis, the most powerful guild in Tritania. Luckily for them, Ryuk used to be a member of the famed guild, and to get to the guild headquarters, they'll need to level up and figure out a way into a city heightened tight security. Along their journey to Polynya, the second floating continent of Tritania, the Mitherfickers are joined by a high elf, whose village is being terrorized by a big bad wolf.

narration and voices still great and all consistent. still not a fan of reading all the stats but they have been sped up when read in this book and appear to not be read as often. for me it would be a lot easier to follow in audible versions if just the level was given. stats make sense in written format as you can skip them, but when being read all the time it inrerupts the story and too distracting.

sense of humour reminds me of blood bowl books. Story is engaging but too much reading and repeating stats. I would have preferred it if instead of reading all the stats just say character level. the amount of times they were read out in full each time had me wanting to skip thus and next book. at times it felt like 2 - 3 mins of just reading stats.out.

One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins - and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.

I am sure the book would have been less engaging had I read it rather than listen; first time I have heard this narrator but she really did make me want to listen to the whole book (still a few paragraphs where I switched off) but if I had just read it I think I would have given the story 3/5 Not 5/5. a very satisfied listen.

The penultimate volume of the mighty Riftwar Cycle. War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work. Jim Dasher’s usually infallible intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled; nowhere is safe. He feels that the world is coming apart at the seams and is helpless to protect his nation. Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and King Gregory of the Isles has yet to produce an heir.

Narrator has changed and boy is he terrible; its like he won a prize to do it Instead of Peter Joyce. I am guessing for whatever reasonthe publisher could not wait and had deadlines for this book as Peter Joyce I noticed reads the next book. this books current narrator is forcing me not to listen to the story and I can't continue listening to him so will miss out on next book. Story seemed interesting up to now though but with the narrator I could not care less about any of the characters and it is just a drone in the background.

really struggled for first half of the book. just felt like it was trying to hard to set something up and had to listen for hours for not a lot to happen really, due to it I could not have cared less for the main character it followed. performance good as always which really helped.

seemed to be hearing the same sentences over and over again; especially the rielle chapters. tyen was the more interesting story and felt like a story and not so repetitive. book gets better towards end and once 3/4 way through. voice acting was very good though and kept different characters voices same throughout, some of the accents were a little weird but you knew the character by voice rather than the story the whole time. good acting.
