    C.S. Friedman, acclaimed author of The Coldfire Trilogy, returns to the epic style which has made her one of the most popular fantasy writers in the genre. In this first book of the trilogy, Friedman introduces listeners to a world of high fantasy, replete with vampire-like magical powers, erotic interludes, treachery, war, sorcery, and a draconic creature of horrific power and evil that will have listeners eagerly awaiting the next novel in the series.

    Story

    C.S Friedman is the author of my favorite fantasy series, The Coldfire Trilogy so I was excited to begin the Magister series. Friedman writes anti-heroes like no other. I never knew there could be so many shades of gray.

    Feast of Souls introduces us to a world of magic where the cost is high, your soul or in the case of some, the souls of others. There are two different practitioners of magic, witches (both male and female) who power their art with their own soul fire, but the human soul is finite and once consumed means death. Then there are the mysterious Magisters, an elite group of males that power their sorcery with the souls of others, thus giving them almost unlimited power, but at what ultimate cost?

    Friedman excels at creating a world in which the powerful rule by manipulating others, and yet you feel sorry for them. The varied cast of characters all had separate stories yet seemed to be guided to the same end. Friedman weaves a complicated net drawing each character closer and closer together for an exciting climax.

    Elisabeth Rogers does an excellent job creating individual personalities for each character. I have read Feast of Souls twice before but listening to it felt like reading it for the first time again. I am looking forward to listening to the next two in the series.

    If you liked Feast of Souls, I highly recommend Friedman's Coldfire trilogy, which is also available on Audible.

    Story

    Now this is how you write a paladin, ladies and gentlemen. Cimozjen Hellekanus is proof that paladins are not all one-dimensional goody two-shoes. This book was the perfect blend of mystery and fantasy, and my only qualm is there are no more books featuring Cimozjen, which is a shame because I bet he will not lead a boring life now that the war is over.

    The narrator, Steve West, breathed excitement into an already thrilling tale. His range of voices for the differing characters was excellent. He is the narrator for the other three books in the Inquisitives series.
