    Long ago, a human astrophysicist, Inigo, began dreaming scenes from the life of a remarkable human being named Edeard, who lived within the Void, a self-contained microuniverse at the heart of the galaxy. There, under the beneficent gaze of mysterious godlike entities, humans possessed uncanny psychic abilities, and Edeard's were the strongest of all. Equally strong was his determination to bring justice and freedom to a world terrorized by criminal violence and corruption.

    I thought the first book was interesting and pretty good, but this one is excellent. The characters are quite compelling and the story takes great direction. By the end you can't wait to get into the 3rd and see what happens.

    The quest for the long-lost Elfstones has drawn the leader of the Druid order and her followers into the hellish dimension known as the Forbidding, where the most dangerous creatures banished from the Four Lands are imprisoned. Now the hunt for the powerful talismans that can save their world has become a series of great challenges: a desperate search for kidnapped comrades, a relentless battle against unspeakable predators, and a grim race to escape the Forbidding alive. But though freedom is closer than they know, it may come at a terrifying price.

    Story

    While a similar plot point is used the overall story and characters are different. This is a great second book of the trilogy and well worth the read, don't let concerns about it being a story you have heard before deter you.

    Sergey and Marina Dyachenko mix dramatic scenes with romance, action and wit, in a style both direct and lyrical. Written with a sure artistic hand, The Scar is the story of a man driven by his own feverish demons to find redemption and the woman who just might save him. Egert is a brash, confident member of the elite guards and an egotistical philanderer. But after he kills an innocent student in a duel, a mysterious man known as “The Wanderer” challenges Egert and slashes his face with his sword, leaving Egert with a scar that comes to symbolize his cowardice.

    At the heart of a bizarre planet lay the goal of every being that had ever lived.… Below average in height and unprepossessing in appearance, Nathan Brazil is an unassuming if cynical starship owner, carrying passengers and cargo for a living - hardly the sort of person to hold the fate of the entire universe in his hands. But when Nathan detours from his route to answer a distress call, a hidden stargate hurls him and his passengers to the Well World, the master control planet for the cosmos. Billions of years ago, a godlike race unlocked all the secrets of space and time and remade the universe according to their grand design.

    If you've already listened to the last two books you already know you want to listen to this one. You definitely won't be disappointed.

    If you are considering this book but have not listed to Lies, or Red Skies first, go start with Lies and you will not be disappointed either. These books are a joyride of excitement, humor, twists, turns and incredible characters. They are worth every minute of the listen.

But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can't rest for long - and they are soon back doing what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.

    For anyone on the fence, get Lies first then read this one. You won't be disappointed.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I've read a lot of reviews on this and had it in my wish list for quite a while. I went into it expecting a nice thriller/mystery type story and ended up with a horror story.

    All in all it was pretty good. There was a lot of the SciFi parts that were a stretch and most of the characters were pretty typical. It's funny that the use Scooby Doo characters as references since the author keeps his characters lined out just about like a cartoon.

    It was an entertaining listen and worth your time for a unique and entertaining story. Don't expect to get your mind blown, but you can expect to be entertained.

    I've seen this series and reviews of it floating around for while now. I have been tempted to listen before but always decided against it.

    I finally took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised. The story was solid even though the characters were predictable and pretty shallow. The action was excellent and I was well entertained the whole time.

    This is a lot like watching a SciFi war movie, and was worth the time. I think I'll pick up the other books to listen to when I want something fun to listen to.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Be sure to read the first book first. Then buckle in and enjoy the ride. This book moves a lot quicker than the first is a real joy to experience. That's right, not listen to or read, but it's a book that you experience.

    There is quite a bit of back story and history building slipped into the rest of the story that I'm sure will all pull together in later books, so keep an open mind through those parts and just absorb it for future use.

    This is well worth the money and time to enjoy.
