    Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder. It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it.

    The assassination of heroes was once a warning... for an invasion that nearly destroyed the world. Nations were slaughtered, cities were erased from existence, and defending armies were crushed into oblivion. In weeks, all life stood on the verge of extinction. But the end did not come. Instead the black horde vanished, leaving terrified survivors... and rumors. As the centuries passed the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. Across the southern sea a gifted young man is completing his training.

    Story

    Characters, Storyline, Twists, Action, Blood, Fighting, Magic, Swords, Demons, Death, and a Sound Narrator to put it all together. Need I say More ??

    ... I will. Great, Great, Great.

    The Fights were of Joe Abercrombie quality, which is hard to match. Not as dark but close enough. Ben Hale makes it so very easy to imagine what is taking place, just enough description to see it in your mind, but not to much to lose interest in what is being described.

    Im very excited to continue this series, just try it out you'll be happy.

    Thren Felhorn is the greatest assassin of his time. All the thieves' guilds of the city are under his unflinching control. If he has his way, death will soon spill out from the shadows and into the streets. Aaron is Thren's son, trained to be heir to his father's criminal empire. He's cold, ruthless - everything an assassin should be. But when Aaron risks his life to protect a priest's daughter from his own guild, he glimpses a world beyond piston, daggers, and the iron rule of his father.

    Story

    Very good story line but the narrator seemed to be trying with all his might to get the voices right throughout the book. He tried so hard that EVERY different voice over was extra slow and drawn out. It doesn't ruin the audio book, but it causes you to start yelling at the characters to start talking faster.

    It was a hard listen bases on the slowness of speech.

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Main Character is beyond Annoying. Nick Podehl does a great job portraying a little brat of a child. The only problem with this, is i was annoyed so much i had to stop listening to this book. While this book well written, and had a story that keep some of my attention, the main character was a young boy that all i wanted to do was smack.


    If you’ve listened to books by Patrick Ness before, how does this one compare?

    no


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    Another Great performance by Nick Podehl.


    Was The Knife of Never Letting Go worth the listening time?

    Not in my mind.
