More than a millennium after the human race forges an uneasy stalemate against the demonic human-psyche feeders known as the fae, a pain-hungry demon called Calesta declares war on all living beings.

"Despite opposition by his Patriarch, warrior priest Damien Vryce again seeks the assistance of the immortal sorcerer Gerald Tarrant. While racing against time to prevent the enslavement of their world, the two men find themselves trapped between justice and retribution. Betrayal and loyalty assume ironic forms in this conclusion to Friedman's complex and compelling "Cold Fire Trilogy." The richly detailed setting and strong supporting characters give substance to a tale that explores the consequences of embracing evil in hopes of achieving its redemption." (Library Journal)
Yes, the author provides detail to the mindset of each character and the narrator brings them to life. The final book had me on edge from beginning to end.
I find it to be unique. A living world that adapts and has a symbiotic bond with its inhabitants. It feels like the era is old but it is actually thousands of years into our future.
I really enjoyed the narrator's performance. He scares me when he does the voices of the nameless and the demons. Each character sounds different and he really brings out the personality of the Hunter and the Priest.
I actually cried at the end. I don't want to give anything away but you actually feel sorry for many of the characters.
I wish there were more books to this series but at last it cannot be. :-( So I purchased C.S Friedman's "Feast of Souls"..
Yes definitely, its always amazing to see a new word with some pretty interesting concepts and the characters are not bad at all . :)
I really loved all the book but I think by the end I was speechless , nice twists :)
I think that R.C Bray did bring the book to live , he did an awesome job all together ,I hope I will found his work more often in this genre . Thank you R C Bray :)
"Sacrifice" maybe or "Don't trust the dead guy" :)
Great writing, C S Friedman did a wonderful job with this trilogy hopefully she will add more books in this world :)
Among the topp ten
All of it! Its a rollercoaster, that takes you through the whole spektra of emotions.
He brings to life a very wide range of distinct of characters and with his tune and modulation he brings sorrow, thrills or action alive.
Get it! Get it, now!
When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.
In a world called Erna seemingly hostile to human dreams and thoughts an unusual story draws to a close. Has the fallen prophet an vampire-like creature of the religion in the one god, the God of Earth and Erna, done enough to be redeemed out of his centuries of hunting women as prey? Will the priest Reverend Damien Canon Vrice done enough to save his friend? How will he choose between his religion and his loyalty to a very dark person?
C.S. Friedman ends a successful trilogy with a good ending. While I thought she was totally against religion - almost like Philip Pullman - she was debating the value of religion throughout the story. I found her approach interesting and refreshing.
R.C. Bray did an excellent job of reading the book. It is very much in the same line as the other two books he read in the trilogy.
If you want a relaxing well put together fantasy story, why not give this trilogy a go?
Only if they wanted to complete the triology.
This was the weakest of the three novels in the series, I just didn't find the new characters compelling.
I always hope for a range of hope and disappointment in my characters experiences, and found this last book was more filled with death, destruction and disappointment than I would have liked, although narration was excellent and the story telling and characterisation very well done.
Maybe, but they'd have to be very specifically fantasy, and DARK fantasy at that.
A great narration and clear delineation between characters
I like that tarrent did get a chance for redemption.
at the end.........dont want to mess it up for others.
in the hunting shop
This series was ok. It could have been better. Everytime someone was close to death Vryce would just heal them or himself. That kind of ruins any suspense.
