Summary

The dragons are coming.

The Groln invasion is accelerating. Cities are blasted into smoking, bloody rubble. In the midst of carnage, consumed by guilt and temptation, Lirak struggles to learn the limits of his powers and the secrets of his past.

Even as the war rages to new heights of barbarity and slaughter, an ancient threat emerges, sending the gods themselves into panic and desperation. Lirak will need more than sorcery to survive.

Narrator not the best but still good.

The narrator makes the characters whiney when they should not be. Like they are crying when they should be passionate and strong.

good storyline

I didn't care for the narrator, this sounds picky and petty. But he uses too much emotion in places that don't demand it.

the Magic is a little bit primitive and vague

spells are somewhat slow. And I just don't get the feeling of intense anticipation of what is going to happen in the book. I care but not like I do about kvothe or other fantasy masterpieces it good but not great

Better than the first!

Story really opens up! And either the characters are becoming less whiny or the narrator is doing a better job! Looking forward to the conclusion!

Great storyline

Great storyline, but simply written with simple vocabulary used. Characters are well developed. Some sexual references.

Fantastic series, fabulous narration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought this audible after a little over 2 hrs into the Warrior. very well written extremely descriptive with color and blinding intensity. David De Santos is no singer (no offense intended) but that makes the Little ditties (I hope there are more in Warlord) sung, more endearing. lovable Characters ominous Plot. Interesting Pantheistic concept. please hurry and finish Warlord, although I won't wait for the audible before I read it I will buy it when it's released.

Great series!

I've really enjoyed this series. Narrator is good except for the voice of the main character. I can only describe it as kind of a nasally voice out of the back of his throat. It still isn't horrible except whenever the main character is upset it sounds really odd.

This book was excellent the amount of detail the author puts in to it makes it feel like I'm right there, immersed in the book.
