Publisher's Summary

Young Corban watches enviously as boys become warriors, learning the art of war. He yearns to wield his sword and spear to protect his king’s realm. But that day will come all too soon. Only when he loses those he loves will he learn the true price of courage.

The Banished Lands has a violent past where armies of men and giants clashed in battle, the earth running dark with their heartsblood. Although the giant clans were broken in ages past, their ruined fortresses still scar the land. But now giants stir anew, the very stones weep blood, and there are sightings of giant wyrms. Those who can still read the signs see a threat far greater than the ancient wars. Sorrow will darken the world as angels and demons make it their battlefield. Then there will be a war to end all wars.

High King Aquilus summons his fellow kings to council, seeking an alliance in this time of need. Prophesy indicates darkness and light will demand two champions, the Black Sun and the Bright Star. They would be wise to seek out both, for if the Black Sun gains ascendancy, mankind’s hopes and dreams will fall to dust.

    Story
    "A Surprising find, a decent book with a character"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Malice to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the book so i cannot tell you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    To be honest the twisting route of light and truth into the darkness inch by inch and decision by decision. Its a great rendition of a similar and familiar story we all know and love.


    What about Damian Lynch’s performance did you like?

    He is a solid voice actor , was confused by the random accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    again I've heard this question its stupid.


    Any additional comments?

    Dear avid listener, this book has 2 min characters and 4-6 sub characters, it follows mostly two main lads are coming of age, one is a prince the other a blacksmith son. you dont quite know who is the good guy and who is the bad. I would recommend this to most people.

    "listen to ... the pause ... every 5 .... words."
    What would have made Malice better?

    remove the narrators constant pausing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Gwynne again?

    with a different narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Damian Lynch’s performances?

    no no no ... and no


    What character would you cut from Malice?

    never made it past the first 30 mins


    Any additional comments?

    i listen to 3 / 4 books a month while driving and this is the first one i have given up on completely.

    "Unexpected pleasure!"

    I was hooked from the start. I couldn't stop listening until the end.

    I'm already downloading book two.

    Good story and performance.

    Definitely one of my favourites!

    "Epic tale"

    A great story with more than a little influence from Game of Thrones. The narration let it down a bit - seemed very rushed in places and lacking tension at exciting moments. I checked several times to see if I had it on fast speed but it wasn't. I know its a big book but there's no hurry!
    One of those stories that deserves a second read or listen to get all the characters in the right place but well worth the time.

    "Boring reader"

    I can't fully rate this audiobook because I didn't get very far. from what I did read, it had potential, but any potential was killed by the lackluster narration. With a better narrator that can bring different tones the book would be much better.

    "good time sink"

    This is an audio book review.

    It's not a good story. very predictable plot twists and its full of cliches, tropes.

    The voice acting is good, though some characters and lines are jarring & just wrong. That is to be expected when the actor has to voice tens of characters.

    I enjoyed the listen overall. recommended for a very long journey to fill time.

    "Review"

    Kind of like this book, only issue is with the narrator with to many pauses. Never know if he's narrating further or if something has happened to the app

    "What a great book"

    This book was brilliant, although a little complicated for a fantasy newbie. The story was enthralling and the characters £d and beleiveable.

    The performance was faultless. John Gwynne was fantastic through out.

    Very good but you might find the book is slow to start but keep going because once it gets going it is very good

    "stilted performance"

    really struggled to get into the book due to the amateurish way in which it is read. there's no flow, no mood built and is stilted and awkward from the start. have given up and am back off to more professionally read titles
