Bahzell is no knight in shining armor, and besides he has too many problems of his own to be messing with anybody else's problems - let alone the War God's. Unfortunately, the War God has other ideas for him.

This was so badly "over written" it sounds more like a high school assignment. I barely made it to the end of chapter one. Just too painful to listen to.
I really enjoyed the story and narrations but the battle scenes were extremely graphic and bloody...only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars
Avid reader and huge sci-fi/fantasy fan
This was a real pleasure to listen to. It was just fun, well written and performed. Not a heavy story.
Good Story few slow parts!
Ending felt rushed but rest of book was spot on. This book really gave you a feel for the world and its races which i'm sure will help with next few books in series.
Fanatical Endurance Athlete, who listens to a lot of books while training.
Whilst this really doesn't have anything new as a fantasy epic, but the story is engaging and well written. The performance is sound, and keeps you engaged throughout.
This is one of David Webber's early works and he has matured as a writer since then so if start at the beginning knowing it will only get better, this is a great start.
It's enjoyable. Nothing special but well written and well narrated. Good for long trips as the story flows easily around you.
Story is solid and progresses logically. The characters don't even need to be named as their mannerisms are unique and interesting. The magic system is not original but the application is ingenious. The narrator is brilliant as always and the performance is consistent in all the books he read.
