Summary

Five hundred years ago, the famed Witchbreaker Lord Stark Tower launched a war against the cult of witches, nearly wiping them out. Today, only a handful of women still practice the craft in secret. A young witch named Sorrow has dedicated her life to changing this reality, vowing to wipe out the Church of the Book and launch a new golden age of witchcraft. 

In pursuit of her goals, she bonds her soul with Rott, the primal dragon of decay, giving her nearly limitless powers of destruction. Unfortunately, tapping this power comes at the cost of her humanity, leading her into a desperate quest to find the greatest witch of all time, Avaris, in hopes of mastering her dark magic before it destroys her. 

But she's not alone in hunting Avaris, as fate throws her into an uneasy partnership with a man who wants to be the new Witchbreaker. Can either of them survive their mutual quests when their journey leads them into battle with Tempest, the primal dragon of storms?

Very enjoyable

I enjoyed this book. It's continuation of the serie. A new character is introduced and this story follows her adventures. The book is a little darker than the previous two. The narrator continues to do a great job.

Change of main character doesn't harm the series

This is the third book in this series and is not the ideal place for somebody to start listening to it and I would recommend starting with the first book instead. While this is the third book in the series and the underlying arc concerning the dragons continues, the focus has shifted with regards to the main character as neither Stagger nor Infidel are the main character, this time round it is the witch Sorrow who continues her own personal quest against the church of the book.

The change of main character and the worsening situation with the overall arc results in a book that is somewhat darker than the previous ones in this series, but it still works and the number of returning characters ensures that it still feels like the same series rather than simply being set in the same world too, while the new ones serve to build out the world further.

The narrator's performance in this series has been a strong one that has provided a suitable range of tones for a varied cast and nicely enhanced the overall story at the same time.

Overall, another strong entry in this series and it will be interesting to see where the author takes it in the next instalment
