I liked that the characters had a lot of back story, some of which gets explained and some doesn't.
I liked the magic combat systems too.
Have to think about that one.
Well narrated with different voices and verbal punctuation.
Never left wondering which character is speaking.
Yes, if it weren't so long.
Made good car-listening though.
I'd definitely recommend both the author and the narrator.
Only had Audible version.
Nice to see Del and Tiger again, but there's no overall plot line, nemesis or end goal for most of the story. Seems more like a series of short stories tied loosely together.
The sequence with Umir the Ruthless.
I'm using these as stay-awake-while-commuting books, so this doesn't really apply to me. There were a couple of parts that I sat in my turned off car to finish though.
Author has kids going to college soon, maybe?
Miles, write faster!
No crying, some laughter.
The magic system and the mixed historical world view are very interesting.
I don't often listen to stories more than once (Roger Zelazny excluded), but if i did, then i would listen to this again.
The characters are real people that you really feel attached to, even the bad guys. The action sequences don't trigger my suspension of disbelief filter - they all seem to be reasonable given the magic system being used.
Just absolutely great from timing, to pitch, to different voices for different characters.
Laughed a couple of times.
I've put Larry Correia on my read-the-next-book list. In fact, I'm downloading the next one now!
The narrator doesn't seem to breath at all. No pauses between sentences. No pauses between scene shifts. Makes it hard to tell when one thought ends and the next begins.
Story idea is interesting. Kind of over does it on the math and physics part.
Almost anyone else.
I think the book would have been okay with a different narrator.
Might be willing to try this author again.
I've liked his other books and was not expecting to be presented with graphic gay sex while driving to work. The story was almost interesting enough to let it pass .... if i'd been reading a physical book that i could just page past the irritating parts. As it was, I dumped the book.
Before the flame war starts, I'm not homophobic and I'm not generally a prude. This was just not what I was looking for.
