    Forge of Darkness takes listeners to Kurald Galain, the warren of Darkness, and tells of a realm whose fate plays a crucial role in the fall of the Malazan Empire and surrounds one of the Malazan world’s most fascinating and powerful characters, Anomander Rake. It’s a conflicted time in Kurald Galain, where Mother Dark reigns above the Tiste people. But this ancient land was once home to many a power...and even death is not quite eternal. The commoners’ great hero, Vatha Urusander, longs for ascendency and Mother Dark’s hand in marriage, but she has taken another Consort, Lord Draconus.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If I could stop dozing off from being bombarded with philosophy it might have been a good book. You will find yourself saying "GET ON WITH IT!!!!!!"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Stop painting Kyle and kale as such bad asses when they're pansies


    Any additional comments?

    Kale and Kylie are such bad asses unless they actually need to be. When anyone actually stands against them then kale usually faints does something impossible then barely gets saved by someone else multiply that by three books

    The Superpox-99 virus has wiped out nearly the entire human race. Governments have collapsed. Cities have become graveyards filled with unspeakable horror. People have resorted to scavenging from the dead, or taking from the living. The entire industrialized world has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, decaying bodies, and feral animals. To stay alive, U.S. Deputy Marshal Mason Raines must forage for food, water, and gasoline while outgunning those who seek to take advantage of the apocalyptic anarchy. Together with his giant Irish wolfhound, Bowie, he aligns with survivors of the town of Boone in a life and death struggle against a gang of violent criminals. With each deadly encounter, Mason is force to accept his place as one of the nation's few remaining lawmen. In a world now populated by escaped convicts, paranoid mutants, and government hit squads, his only hope to save the townspeople is to enforce his own brand of frontier justice.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Idiots


    Would you ever listen to anything by Arthur T. Bradley again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    If he actually had thought about what he was writing. Honestly the whole thing was so cliche and the father Paul character was a complete insult to Christians, portraying him as a coward and a moron.

    In the vast dominion of Seven Cities, in the Holy Desert Raraku, the seer Sha’ik and her followers prepare for the long-prophesied uprising known as the Whirlwind. Unprecedented in size and savagery, this maelstrom of fanaticism and bloodlust will embroil the Malazan Empire in one of the bloodiest conflicts it has ever known, shaping destinies and giving birth to legends.....

    THE PROBLEM the author writes as if you just finished his last book. No introductions barely any description. Every book should be self contained. Unless you just put down book one this will be a bunch of nonsense. Bang your head on the keyboard and read that instead of burning your credit.
