The previous three books in the series were entertaining despite the gross flaws of the main character Stile. The author had obviously projected a wild wish-fulfillment fantasy onto his main character and it was quite disturbing at times. The protagonist Stile is an arrogant, self-serving jerk.
So, it was quite a pleasant shock that the best book in the series so far was the one that was almost entirely absent of the Stile character.
I first read the Apprentice Adept when I was still a boy, much to my mother's dissatisfaction. Long did I believe the story ended with the third. My delight upon finding book 5 in a used book store was great, as was my despair of ever finding the others. Audible allowed me to thoroughly enjoy this great work, delivered most excellently by the narrator, for which my gratitude shall endure for some time.
