Publisher's Summary

The Empire of Fellein is in mourning. The Emperor is dead, and the armies of the empire have grown soft. Merros Dulver, their newly-appointed - and somewhat reluctant - commander, has been tasked with preparing them to fight the most savage enemy the world has yet seen.

Meanwhile, a perpetual storm ravages the Blasted Lands, and a new threat is about to arise - the Broken are coming, and with them only Death.

    "Great book"

    An amazing book for adults that are tired of the love concurs all bs. The main character doesn't get his first love in fact he gets sum strange from a random girl.
    When you finally get to see under their vale it will make your jaw drop.

    "Great hidden gem"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course, I think it is a unique and refreshing fantasy series. I ran across the first book in the series by accident and couldn't stop grinning at my rare find. It is just cool and badass!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love them all.


    What about David de Vries’s performance did you like?

    Dave is right on and I find him to be one of the best.


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

    Made me happy ;that for once when I tried an unknown, I hit the mark.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it and spread the word!

    "Not Enough Meat On This Bone"
    If you could sum up The Blasted Lands in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, gritty, new


    Any additional comments?

    I really love this series so my irk isn't due to storytelling but the fact that it is lean in my opinion. There are some questions that should have been answered in this book. Many are now being answered in book 3 and I don't see the reason for the delay. Good book but not enough forward movement. On the plus, I feel the characters are fleshed out more in this book than the first one.

    "Blasted Lands"
    What about David de Vries’s performance did you like?

    I like the accents that he employs. It makes it easier to keep up with who is speaking in the dialogs and his vocal ranger makes the females believable.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very well written and thought out books We begin to see motivations of the Sa'ba Taalor and understand their culture more. It is a very inventive society and religious structure.

    "Great Series!"

    I truly love this series! The characters are full of depth and flaws that make them believe able.

    I tell everyone I can about this series to spread the word! Great new fantasy setting!

    "enjoyable continuation of the series"

    Realistically, if you enjoyed the first you will likely enjoy this book.

    More time is spent exploring the Blasted Lands than the first (thus the title) and giving us a peek beneath the veils.

    Worth a listen if you enjoyed the first.

    Story
    "The story has improved a bit since the first book."

    I didn't really get in to the first book. But I had accidently bought this one first, and needed something to listen. To, so I decided to give this one a go. The narrators choice of a scandinavian/Swedish accent for the grey skinned people (note, the story hasn't been engaging enough to make names or pronouns stick) is interesting. I'm a bit weirded out by the reveal of what lies under the veil. Events and motives were partially revealed near the end of this book, which have peaked my interest. I still feel quite confused, however. It seems like there are major details that I'm just missing. Maybe I missed them when my brain checked out in the first book, but it feels more like the author is trying to lure readers in by being cryptic. He shouldn't have been so heavy handed with it. Instead of a burning desire to know more, I just feel annoyed.

    Story
    "Old J. did it again!"
    What did you love best about The Blasted Lands?

    There was no place in this book where I knew what was going to happen, which was rare.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the master wizard but , the changing boy with the new hands is off the chain. sort a speak.


    What does David de Vries bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    David was able to bring out each character in their own right. The voices he manages to weave into the story is very. . . Very good. sometimes a Reader gets twisted up with characters and it ma loose you at vital parts in the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I have to agree with wife of the murdered King was very emotional. t was a trip.


    Any additional comments?

    Hurry up with the next installment. The story is so tight that I know your 3 by 5 cards have to be everywhere on the walls. Good Luck with the next version.
