    The Coldfire trilogy tells a story of discovery and battle against evil on a planet where a force of nature exists that is capable of reshaping the world in response to psychic stimulus. This terrifying force, much like magic, has the power to prey upon the human mind, drawing forth a person's worst nightmare images or most treasured dreams and indiscriminately giving them life. This is the story of two men. They are absolute enemies who must unite to conquer an evil greater than anything their world has ever known.

    What did you love best about Black Sun Rising?

    Perhaps the best thing about Black Sun Rising and the Cold Fire Trilogy as well, is the world creation. The magic system alone is worth the credits. I have listened to over 700 books, and the reading of the entire trilogy is top notch. RC Bray nails it.


    What other book might you compare Black Sun Rising to and why?

    While Black Sun Rising stands out, as special, if you you are a fan of good world creation, it is easily in the same category as such great books, as Mistborn, the codex Alera, and Chalion books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are many stand out scenes in this book, but i was hooked 20 years ago by the prologe, and it still stands out to me to this day.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book so much that i spent a year creating a paper and pencil RPG based on it back in the 90's.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been waiting for these books to come out on audio for years. And i am not disappointed in the least. Five solid stars.
