"Brilliant, with action and suspense all the way." (Best-selling author, Terry Brooks)
This book was a pleasant surprise and I'm glad that I found it. One of the best first halfs of a book I've read. Brett introduces a world that is terrifying and brutal where people are sheep and demons wolves. But this is not a simple good vs evil story. Humans can be just as brutal and terrible as the demons, not to mention petty. In this harsh and unforgiving world however, a hero is born. Brett does a great job with character development for his 3 characters and I thoroughly enjoyed their journey. I had a few issues with the story but ultimately it was a worthwile and engrossing read.
I found this book by accident just browsing the library. The narrator does a great job. The story line is addicting. I haven't had a book keep me up till 4 am in a long time. I post a lot of reviews about the flaws in a book..... I have nothing negative to say here. I can't believe this book is not "front page" on the audible web site.
enjoyed this book interesting characters, can't get 2nd book no rights in Australia for audible? pain in the butt.

I loved this fantasy story. It is well written and masterful. Well developed characters. Solid world building.
Excellent story, great telling, but horrible gaps between chapters and even paragraphs. Time and time again I found myself wondering if the playback had stopped
I started this book and just couldn't get into it. I gave up after a few hours. I wish I could get my money back.
The story was just depressing.
The characters don't make you care about them.
The reader was very dry.
This is only the second book that I have given up on in the last 4 years of being an audible listener.
Great story teller, he pulls you in from the first page and rivets you through the end. Can't stop listening!
