Summary

"Strikingly intense...immersive and thoroughly compelling." (SFX)

"Compelling and entertaining...inventive and fun." (SciFiNow)

The war is over, but something is rotten in the state of Eidyn.

With a ragged peace in place, demons burn farmlands, violent Reivers roam the wilds and plague has spread beyond the Black Meadows. The country is on its knees.

In a society that fears and shuns him, Aranok is the first magically-skilled draoidh to be named King's Envoy.

Now, charged with restoring an exiled foreign queen to her throne, he leads a group of strangers across the ravaged country. But at every step, a new mystery complicates their mission.

As bodies drop around them, new threats emerge and lies are revealed, can Aranok bring his companions together and uncover the conspiracy that threatens the kingdom? 

Strap in for this twisted fantasy road trip from award-winning author Justin Lee Anderson.

Holy Cow!

I don't often write reviews, but I could not resist. You know, when you finish listening to a book and you're trying to figure out what to read next? You look thru the list and since none of your usual authors have anything new out. You decide to try something new and keep your fingers crossed and pick something. OMG! This is what I picked. There are not enough words to express how much I enjoyed this book. From the start through the finish I was captivated. Mr. Anderson, you are definitely at the top of my list for storytellers! Euan Morton is outstanding! I can't wait to listen to it all over again.

I am really disappointed ...

<Spoiler Alert .!! >

Before I begin this review, let me just say up front that the narration was really enjoyable. It is the author that I am extremely disappointed in.

So, I was hoping for a good story, maybe a little magic, some swordplay, royalty, commoners, perhaps some romance, a dragon or a demon or some kind of monster ... but I was not prepared to be served a heaping pile of time travel. I HATE that. If something in the story happens that the author doesn't like, or doesn't see how to continue, he just corrects it with a magician who can turn back time. That's BS, and I'm angry about it. And then at the end of the story, it was all a dream. Really!? A Dream? More BS! That is worse than time travel ...

I'm going to return this book. What a lame author's trick ... time travel, amnesia, memory loss, etc. Totally disgusting. I think the author should quit after this poor excuse for a book. Maybe Amazon should revoke his credentials.

Little RPGish! Looks like it could be a solid read

I was ready to give up on this book, but at the end Anderson brings it together and makes you understand why something just wasn't' quite right about the characters. It completes a story that seems to head no where. It did feel a lot like the Original Sin RPG game to me. Women character's were masculated, but of coarse beautiful! Whatever! Men a bit emasculated! Whatever!
Kind of tired of that trend. There is a way to respect the gender's strength in fantasy without all that bogus approach!
In the long run, a good twist for an ending.
