Beautiful Queen Inos married the loyal stableboy Rap and made him her king. They were very much in love, and they lived happily ever after.Fifteen years went by. Rap and Inos were comfortable, secure, and truly happy, raising their family in the little backwater kingdom of Krasnegar, well removed from the hurly-burly of great affairs....
But in far-off Hub, the old Imperor's health - and, some said, his sanity - deteriorated inexorably. The borderlands were seething, Prince Emshandar - or Shandie, as Rap knew him - found himself leading his grandfather's armies into terrible battles where victory and justice hung in gravest doubt.
And now the end of the millennium was at hand, ushered in by prophecies of cataclysmic upheaval on a scale never before imagined. All across Pandemia, sensible people tried to dismiss a growing sense of unease as superstitious nonsense.
Then a God appeared to Rap and warned him that the prophecies spoke the least of the truth. Devastation was a certainty; total destruction loomed. The very fabric of the world was at risk. And it was all Rap's fault.
The lasting in the world Rap had wanted was another adventure. And it might be the last thing he would ever get.

Seeing how the characters are further developing and learning more about the word they live in (including the different races). Also the introduction of interesting new characters.
The introspections of the characters are wonderfully written, funny, and clever.
All of them.
It really gets going halfway through the book.
I enjoy listening to books, as I can listen, and still cook and clean, while I escape into whatever story I am into at the time. I began reading when I was four years old and can't imagine a world without books. I prefer audiobooks as I am a working wife and mother. Audible has made my life more fun.
I love the continuation of the story of Rap & Inks. The story provides a wonderful escape and is one of my all time favorites!
Rap has always been an interesting character as he has many contradictions and above all, a conscience. He is a very realistic hero, very stubborn, makes good/bad choices that you can't wait to see the consequences of.
Mil Nicholson does a great job with male voices. It's easy to stay lost in the story, she doesn't have any annoying habits. I look forward to hearing more from her.
Adventures in folly.
Please hurry as fast as you can to release the next three books.
