No. I would recommend the entire series up to this book. I would recommend the companion series. I would recommend the vampire series the author wrote.
This was little more than an hour or so introducing the characters and reminding us who they were and what their background was. That was followed by a battle whose outcome was never in doubt. Then a little Star Wars-esque scene where the ghosts of characters past approve of Rudy. It ends with everyone sitting around the home fires eating and drinking. Yawn.
He could have not written it. A listener who has gone through the entire series and the companion books has nearly 200 hours invested in these worlds and the characters. We want to hear how their lives are going and the challenges they overcome.
This book was about 13 hours whereas the others were 20 or so. This book needed a good 7 hours of crisis.
Let's have Rudy go head to head against the CUT. Sail the Pacific. Explore south. Overcome dissension within the kingdom. Do something.
If nothing else, we have a good foundation for the next book that I am looking forward to.
I will download books just because Todd McLaren is the reader. He could make a recitation of a phone book fascinating.
