Publisher's Summary

A powerful sorcerer. A forgotten past. Hellequin is back, and the end is near.

A terrible storm is brewing in London, and Nathan Garrett, the sorcerer known as Hellequin, is the only one who can stop it.

But his enemies have other plans. Harnessing the power of an ancient stone tablet, they cast Nate and his allies into another realm, where a bloody conflict rages between creatures twisted by magic. Meanwhile, with his friends' lives in danger, Nate must put centuries of differences aside, and place his trust in one of his greatest foes.

Time is running out. Trapped and outnumbered, Nate must use all his wits and power to survive and find his way home before his enemies start a war that could destroy everything he holds close. Welcome to the penultimate chapter of the Hellequin Chronicles.

    I drive a lot for work,and when I drive I listen to audible. Life is good. In my mid-30's now, and I mainly listen to Fantasy books.

    "Narrator change..."

    I generally hate narrator changes. This change wasn't as bad as others, but it still wasn't a good thing. Often the narrator made Nate sound like one of the female characters. It was I'd having a high pitch question be followed by Nate asked. Otherwise the narrator was good.

    Otherwise I liked the book. I'm not where I'd place the book in comparison to the rest of the series, mainly because the narrator took some of the joy out of it. These books are always full of plot holes and yet are fun enough that we joyfully go along with it. This one is no exception. Fun, action packed, with enough emotion and wit to keep ones mind away from the flaws. I'm good with it. They don't pretend to be anything else. And, the originality is great.
    Can't wait for the next book, though I hope we get the original narrator back.

    "New voice lacks proper rage and grit"

    New narrator, He's ok, not as good as James for Nate, Simon makes Nate sound like a college age capable guy. James makes him sound like an tough middle aged utter badass that no one wants to fuck with. Simon just doesn't give Nate the grit/gravitas that the character needs. Simon is decent for Nate, and totally inadequate for HELLEQUIN you REALLY notice the difference in the scenes where Nate gets angry and starts talking about it and how he's going to kick Ass. James gives his voice real growl/rage to the words in those situations :-D

    Other than that, the book was awesome, plenty of New fun stuff and I think I like it more than the previous book.

    "Excellent"

    I can't wait for the next book in this series. I discovered this book recently and was happy to catch up on the series during a marathon reading session. Now I'm salivating waiting for the next.

    "Great Listen, love this story"
    If you could sum up Promise of Wrath in three words, what would they be?

    Explained a lot.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nate is a complex hero. A great friend, vengeful, heroic, man of action.


    What about Simon Mattacks’s performance did you like?

    Loved his performance. He had all the voices down. I would like to hear more from him. I know some did not like the change, but I thought it worked well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed in a lot of places. I could see the humor and the angst.


    Any additional comments?

    Great addition to the series. Waiting for the next book.

    "Good book, unhappy about performer change"

    I have read all the books in this series and they have been read by the same person. I enjoyed the way those performances were done, this one was a bit bland with no special reflections for the characters. The book was by no means bad, I just wasn't impressed with the new reader.

    "McHugh at his BEST!!"
    Where does Promise of Wrath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    NUMBER 2! Second only to Born of Hatred by McHugh!


    What other book might you compare Promise of Wrath to and why?

    None! Iron Druid Chronicles has just been topped! This is close in ranking to Kipjo "The First." Waiting on her 3rd book.


    What about Simon Mattacks’s performance did you like?

    Everything.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Hellequin" speaks volumes in its own right!


    Any additional comments?

    HURRY!!!!! Is he Thor's Son?!?

    "Great Story ok performance"

    I've listened to all of these stories on audible. This was not the best performance.

    Main reason is that the reader falls out of character to often confusing the storyline and dropping the listener out of the immersive tale. The reader starts a different character's voice before the right dialogue begins. Using for example the voice of the fox for the voice of a villain on occasion and vice versus.

    Previous Books reader was amazing.

    "Alex"

    Another fascinating installment in the Hellequin chronicles. Steve Mchugh has a way of revealing long held mysteries and introducing new plots without being abrupt in his endings. You want to continue the series not from a cliffhanger ending but because the story is so enjoyable. Simon Mattacks was superb. Thanks Steve for a great read/listen

    "Different narrator after 5 books!?"

    Good book but let down by a change in narrator. The narrator used is 'good' but a change in the way words and names are pronounced after 5 books is jarring and some how made Nate sound whiny rather than badass.
