    Story
    (220)

    Devyn Kell spent his life in service to the League until he learned of the double dealing and backstabbing that was costing innocent people their lives. Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner - someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive. May the gods have mercy on any who get in his way, because he definitely won't.

    "Writing by formula"
    Overall

    This is the fourth book in the League novels that I've listened to. I started with the first, Born of Night and I thought it was a really good book so I started listening to the others. I've come to the conclusion that by this point Ms. Kenyon is writing by formula. Take the same basic scenarios, change settings and names (most of the time), and repeat. Considering how much I liked the first book of the series, I really had higher hopes for this book. Considering that this book is supposed to be the second generation from Born of Fire, the stories start out nearly identical, making it very hard to keep listening to. While I love a good romance, I also expect innovation in the action parts of the story. Here's hoping further books get better.

    Story
    (2358)

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    D. Ramirez says: "I normally wouldn't, but..."
    "different yet the same"
    Overall

    Us Wheel of Time fans sorely miss Robert Jordan, and while Brandon Sanderson has admited that he'll never write like Jordan, he managed to still immerse the readers back into the lands we've all come to love. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have once again brought the words of Rand's tale to life, I can't even begin to imagine a WoT book not read by them any more.
