I really liked this story. There were no lulls, just pure entertainment. Sad to see it end, but there is always the possibility for more.
My daughter likes scary books & it was wonderful to find a story we could both enjoy.
Please read my review of "The Warded Man".... and double it!!!! When I told my husband the story gets even better, he couldn't believe me. The details regarding multiple cultures, lands, traditions... wonderful. Peter V. Brett is a guy I would LOVE to sit around a campfire with, an interesting mind. What more can you get from BUF?
I would listen to this again. I actually started it over when I got my husband to read it. He is now on book two "The Desert Spear" & we are both awaiting "The Daylight War" with eager anticipation. This I must caps, I COULD NEVER GET MY HUSBAND TO STICK WITH JUST ONE BOOK I SUGGESTED... OR ANY FOR THAT MATTER. NOW HIS BEST FRIEND HAS READ IT TOO!!
The narrator did a wonderful job expressing the emotions & personality of a variety of characters... kudos.
I must admit, I almost put the book down in the beginning.. Sorry Peter Brett. But after a short time, I had to keep going... HAD to. This story has the potential to be the next "Star Wars" mixed with "Indiana Jones"..... hopefully it will not get slaughtered into a 90 minute movie. This book alone needs the audiences time, don't get me started on book two. The worst part is I will be sincerely sad when the story finally closes.
