Summary

Darkness and destruction have come to the land... but for what ultimate purpose? It has been 10 years since Quentin helped the Dragon King battle the sorcerer Nimrood. Since that time, there has been peace in the land of Mensandor. Until now.

An urgent message summons Quentin to Castle Askelon. The dying king wishes to name the brave young man his successor. But first, he sends him on an unfathomable mission. Quentin and his friend Toli must confront Nin - a legendary warrior bent on total destruction - and deal with the appearance of the Wolf Star, an omen of impending evil. But how do they muster the faith and courage to prevail against a nightmarish prophecy that heralds the end of mankind?

The Warlords of Nin, the second book in Stephen R. Lawhead's epic Dragon King Trilogy, continues the mythical saga that began with In the Hall of the Dragon King.

Good follow up

Great story spoiled by terrible music and awful editing. If there has to be music choose something less cheesy

Confusion around ch. 5

I haven’t finished the book yet, but I had to bring mention of what I think may be an editing mistake around chapter 5. Chapter 4 ends with Tali (please forgive name spelling mistakes) and Quentin finishing their discussion with Biorkis and they head back to their campsite. Chapter 5 begins in the middle of a conversation between Derwin and Quentin about the different ages of the earth. Quentin and Tali are in Derwin’s chambers at this point. Then at 4 minutes and 30 seconds in to chapter 5, it suddenly goes into “Tali and Quentin had ridden from Naromor to Derwin’s cottage in Pelegrín forest...” Derwin was nowhere to be found, so they decide to go on to the castle and head straight for Derwin’s chambers in the castle. Then Derwin tells them, “You have ridden all night...” 6 min and 19 sec in, they bring up the topic about the Star. And then the story moves on to Bria showing up. I had to listen to these parts more than once because I was very confused as to what was going on, and then realized that the sections must have gotten out of order during the editing process. I don’t know if there’s any way to fix this, but I just wanted to give a heads up about it since I hadn’t seen anyone else’s review mention this.
I listened to the first book of this series and it was good, I enjoyed it and decided to listen to book 2. I haven’t gotten very far in it yet, so I cannot give a definite rating at the moment. But, for now, I’d say overall a 4 out of 5 stars. If that changes once I’ve finished the book, I’ll come back and edit this rating.

prepare yourself

for mediocre cliches and not so subtle religious subjects. The plot is predictable and the characters are one dimensional and lack common sense in basic military strategy. Its no wonder they need a God to save them. Tim Gregory is a talented narrator and has a good vocal range and consistency for each character. His Ss are sharp sharpand raspy in ear buds.

Fair and Predictable

There is nothing "wrong" with this book, it follows the prescribed formula to a Tee but it lacks the luster and polish that some of the other books in other series by Mr. Lawhead. I wish I could say outright what the problem is with this one was, whether it was the narration or the book itself but it just fails to grab you and hold on. I am sure I will finish the series and I pray I am not totally disappointed.

Peace is at an end

Ten years of peace in Mensandor comes to an end, when the world is attacked by the Warlords of Nin. Quentin is named heir and successor to the throne by Eskavar, but first he is sent on a quest. Along the way he fulfills a prophecy. A brilliant sequel to In the Hall of the Dragon King. Stephen Lawhead is a master of his art. Tim Gregory delivers a great performance.

A bit to much religeon

Would you listen to The Warlords of Nin again? Why?

NO. It had a pretty good story, but the author is obsessed with adding god to everything. He believes in god that is great. However, every other line is the god on high. Limit this to a couple of times a book and this book is 5 stars.

If you’ve listened to books by Stephen R. Lawhead before, how does this one compare?
