Summary

With a single blow, Cete won both honor and exile from his last commander. Since then he has wandered, looking for a place to call home. The distant holdings of the Reach Antach offer shelter, but that promise has a price. The Reach Antach is doomed. Barbarians, traitors, and scheming investors conspire to destroy the burgeoning settlement. A wise man would move on, but Cete has found reason to stay. A blind weaver woman and the beautiful sunset mantle lure the warrior to wager everything he has left on one final chance to turn back the hungry tides of war.

A pretty decent quick listen.

The premise of this story got me intrigued enough to preorder it. It turned out to be a decent story, with some decent characters and some good action scenes. The battle scenes are well executed, and the story is consistent. It is a litte stiff in dialogue, though, with the caste system not really all that well explained, and the worldbuilding is a little sparse. The narrration was ok, but nothing really stood out. It is an interesting story that can be listened to fairly quickly, but it's not likely to replace GRRM or Robert Jordan as your favorite fantasy authors.
