    In a world scarred by an apocalyptic past, evoking a time both 2,000 years past and 2,000 years into the future, untold thousands gather for a crusade. Among them, two men and two women are ensnared by a mysterious traveler, Anasûrimbor Kellhus - part warrior, part philosopher, part sorcerous, charismatic presence - from lands long thought dead. The Darkness That Comes Before is a history of this great holy war, and like all histories, the survivors write its conclusion.

    "Enjoying listening to a book I've read many times"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Darkness That Comes Before in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, brutality, artistry


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Darkness That Comes Before?

    I personally love the moments when you gain insight into Kellhus' background and training


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He has some flimsy accents, and sometimes the same character's accent will change. I found myself laughing a lot at his inability to keep track of those details, granted, there are a lot of characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't leave spoilers! I found the whole book quite moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this book print three times. I'm almost finished listening to the audio version. I highly recommend reading this book in print. You can take your time with it and absorb things. I am really enjoying the audio, but I think it helps that I know the story already.
