Now he must survive against hellish forces to face his ultimate foe: a long-forgotten god whose destiny is intertwined with his own.

Story was sort of start and stop for me. Would be very interesting then die off but overall it turned out nicely.
Nick Podehl was EXCELLENT.
For me, it took a while to get into the story and relate to the characters - about a quarter of the way into the book. But after that, I was all in. I felt the losses the characters felt, and their passions and their plight.
The end was satisfying and left me thinking about the characters and the world for days after finishing the book.
Entertaining listen but low on my list
The Gaurdian's story
The initial interactions between the Guardian and Chance
No, but still entertaining.
This story had some interesting creativity behind it. It flows well even though the plot gets predictable at times. The narrator does a nice job of seperating the personalities. Another reviewer said the author was pushing blind faith but must have set aside the story early. The main character finds that faith, like so many things in the world, is not as it first seems.
but seriously this is so one dimensional its stupid. It starts off somewhat promising but it becomes pretty clear that what the author was trying to do here was promote a very specific view of the world. Brandon Sanderson said it best in The Way of Kings: "the role of a storyteller is not to tell you what to think, but to give you questions to think about." This is not that. It is very clearly telling you what to think, and bluntly. World building is very formulaic and in a way that feels like the author was just doing a scifi checkbox thing. A huge disappointment.
