Publisher's Summary

Tyrion was a good person who had been born to a simple family and raised with love, but the world has shaped him for a different fate. Twisted by violence and torture, he is obsessed with a relentless desire for vengeance, and he has sown the seeds of wrath in his children. The She'Har have offered him the opportunity to be a great leader and usher in a new era of prosperity and peace, but, despite his gentle beginnings, Tyrion is no hero.

Heroes are born to build, and while many laud the efforts of such leaders, others will work to bring them down, for all good things must come to an end. Every forest must inevitably face the flame.

Destiny has chosen Tyrion for a different path and has given him the spark that will burn the world to ashes. Embracing the evil within, he will reap a harvest of hatred, and no one will find safety in the purge of fire that he brings; even the betrayer has his bane.

Will anything be left to rise from the ash?

    "Excellent conclusion"

    This is a very dark book, be warned, but also a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and I very much enjoyed all 3 books. This series well worth the read if you like a grittier fantasy. The description of magic was also interesting and imaginative. Very solid voice acting was the icing on the cake.

    "Very good end"

    The beginning of this 3rd chapter it was slow and it didn't convince me. However as the story continued it got interesting and although sad I really like the end. It is also good to finish in 3 books. Many thanks

    "Imaginative writing to the end!"

    Having read the first two books of this trilogy, I was hoping the last one would be enthralling as the first two. I was not disappointed - it was thrilling, adventurous, exciting - moving me to tears of sadness and joy. What a wonderful writer this author is and my goodness the narrator was fantastic and could not be faulted. I have returned to my own world now but will miss the excitement of the world I was immersed in. Loved it!!

    "Warning: Depravity Ladened"

    Michael Manning is an exceptional author as he continues to demonstrate in book 3 of this trilogy. However, the content of this book and book 2, The Silent Tempest, are so steeped in acts of degeneracy as to make it unpleasant and difficult to find much enjoyment in their telling.

    Alex Wyndham performed an excellent performance of the characters.

    In short, this is a very dark series and, even for most adult listeners, and not for the weak of heart.

    "I hard read but a worthy conclusion"

    it was a very good book.. that being said it was also one of the saddest reads I have read in a very long time I applaud Michael G Manning for being able to tie these two stories together and make a book that explains the past and answers the questions left by the other series he wrote first.

    "A refreshing twist"

    Tired of reading stories where ever thing magically works out in the end to the point that it almost seems that the achieved goal is almost meaningless? Then listen to this series and follow a story where every gain makes your heart break as you relate to the characters, even the "bad" ones. So sit back listen and judge the characters and ask yourself what would I do? Before you know it you'll be hooked!

    Love this series. Heart wrenching. I wish more fantasy writers would take risks with tone like this. Narrator was awesome.

    Where does Betrayer's Bane rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ten for sure


    Any additional comments?

    It's a lot to handle. But done well enough to make it incredibly moving.

    "Best Book of the Three"

    I couldn't stop listening and was literally on the edge of my seat. The narrator is phenomenal as his inflections suit the characters to a tee. I'll be reading more of his narrations.

    "Crazy Awesome..."

    I'm not sure if this was the conclusion to the series - But the ending was awesome. Not how I imagined - Which made it even better.

    As weird as some of the concepts were in this series - It was equally genius. The character building was incredible. I understood each person and their personalities. Bridgett was a work of art. The way she was developed and her psyche was disturbingly intriguing.

    As a struggling writer - I feel inadequate listing to this book, as well as inspired.

    Also - Alex Wyndham has moved into my top ten narrator list. His switch between characters was flawless. His male and female voices were incredible and easy to listen to.
