Summary

How far does camaraderie stretch, when it’s life and death? 

Demon’s Deep mine is out of action. The miners are missing, and psychotic savages - The Unbound - have taken it over. Unfortunately, where the Unbound go, bad magic follows. Magic which mutates living things, and liquefies rock. 

Kiprik, long suffering leader of his elite snatch squad, must rescue the miners before army commanders run out of patience and start pumping poison gas. With his meat-headed corporal and loyal friend Stack at his side, he’ll face up to any threat, and stick an axe in its face, so long as the sneering Padre Brax doesn’t get in the way. 

But this is a task which will see Kiprik and his crew going to the very bottom of the mine, where the deepest magic and the darkest truths lurk. 

Will honor and camaraderie be enough? 

Join Kiprik and the boys on this heart wrenching, epic fantasy adventure. If you enjoy complex characters, gorgeous settings and a big, big world, you’ll love this.

Engrossing!

loved the atmosphere that the author has created, the gritty world and the characters that inhabit it are intriguing and made me want more. the narrator did a great job of distinguishing each character in each scene, and hit the action sequences with a sense of drama that really sets the mood

Need more!

Feels like the emergence of an epic fantasy! Thoroughly well written and enjoyable and I really hope to see more releases set in this world soon!
Great narration; all characters are well differentiated with good voices and the general reading is done very well too. Nigel has an essence of a theatrical sound to some of his reading but certainly not detrimental in any way.
Both author and Nigel are just a short step from achieving the 5 star rating, which possibly had the book been longer may have been given.
I liked the use of the sound effects, they were not overpowering as some can be.
All in all, highly enjoyable and would love to hear more from this pairing!!
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

Ranker's charge

The main characters were interesting with different personalities and their interactions and the actions they took were very in keeping with their characters.It has an interesting plot and good narrator.

Exciting Story!

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. The writing is fantastic. The narrator obviously loves what he does because does a great job! I'm sure you'll enjoy this one.

Good story - excellent narrator

Dark and exciting. The writing was really good, and the narrator was fantastic. The world is deep, and the plot is engaging. Fun creatures, too.

Interesting book!

This book was different from what I have listened to before; however, the narrator does a great job with the characters in this book. I enjoyed the story line.

A Dark, Gritty, Exciting Adventure Fantasy

An exciting, engrossing, violent fantasy novella, Ranker’s Charge has all of the great stuff we want from adventure fantasy. There are rough, rude characters, grisly battles, and horrifying creatures. In a short space, Stevens builds a complex and original world. Carrying on the traditions of Robert E. Howard, S.P. Stevens’s Ranker’s Charge is sure to please fans of raw, dark fantasy adventures. The narration here is deliciously sinister and macabre, perfectly suited to the content.

A fun but short adventure.

I don’t usually like dramatization in audiobooks but this one balances it really well and I enjoyed it. Interesting characters are the main strength of the story with the limited world building making it feel like a prequel. The world itself reminds me of Dragon Age with the unbound being reminiscent of the darkspawn. Overall it was a fun but brief ride but I’d be interested in what happens next.

Ok story

The story was interesting in this book, but I never could get into it and just really want to listen to this book. The narrator was very good, but I don't really enjoy when audiobooks put in sound effects and music at every turn/chapter.
I would give this author and narrator another go, but this really wasn't one of my favorite books. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't my favorite.

This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.

Excellently gritty and rank

The world is rich and deep. It reminds me a little of Glen Cook's Black Company. This book is clearly a setup for a longer epic. I'm looking forward to that tale. My only complaint is that it was over too soon.
