Publisher's Summary

The good part about being immortal is that you cannot die. That is also the bad part.

Brash, young, and markedly sociopathic, Cyan has the makings of a full army commander if he lives long enough to be promoted. But when a close brush with death breaks his resolve, he is rendered unable to lead his men, let alone leave his tent, for weeks.

The tide starts to turn when his superiors send him a magical artifact that ensures he will not die on the battlefield. Unfortunately for Cyan, he soon learns that not dying can be worse than not living - a side effect of the artifact's magic turns more of his body to lifeless iron with each passing day. Knowing time is short before he becomes just another statue in a town square, he sets off on a quest to rid himself of his cursed immortality.

    Story
    "The jerk we love to hate, and one we hate to love"
    If you could sum up The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate in three words, what would they be?

    Blood, guts, & dark humor


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cyan Wraithwate. He's the jerk we love to hate, and one we hate to love. He's got a big axe, poor impulse control, and a twisted penchant for manipulating people. He's fun to watch in action.


    What about Matt Weight’s performance did you like?

    Matt Weight is a natural storyteller. His uniquely snarky delivery gives the book the feel of a Quentin Tarantino film. When the blood flies and the tension's high, he drills down every gritty detail. And his sarcastic deadpan has to be heard to be believed. Any way you slice it, Mr. Weight's performance will delight, amuse, and amaze.


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

    The action sequences were flashy and intense, and perfectly narrated. The author's dark sense of humor will make you chuckle and cringe at the same time.


    Any additional comments?

    "The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate" is an exceptional dark fantasy.

    "Edgy dark fantasy with a twist!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate the most enjoyable?

    I loved the action sequences, and there were many of them! And also the ways in which the protagonist dies, and comes right back. All the action aside, the story is very good too. Mr. Weight, the narrator, did a fantastic job throughout.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cyan, the main character. He's a jerk and he's hard to like as a person, but he's fun to watch in action.


    What does Matt Weight bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Weight's voice acting was fantastic. I love the way he voices the main character, Cyan. He makes him sound like a mercenary jerk, which Cyan is.


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

    The final twist at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and the voice acting.

    Story
    "A wicked dark fantasy, expertly narrated"

    As the old adage goes, "be careful what you wish for." Cyan learns much too late that the immortality he so eagerly accepted as a blessing turns out to be a curse. With each passing day, more of his body turns into lifeless iron. He sets out on a desperate race against time to save his skin, and possibly even his soul too, along the way.

    What struck me about the book is that the writing is "different." I couldn't put my finger on it at first, but later I learned that the book is actually very old, the author having written it in the 1960's. As a result, the plot, pace, and author's choice of words aren't like our contemporary fantasy today; rather, the book reads more like fantasy novels from decades past, from which the author drew inspiration.

    While Cyan is the book's protagonist, that in no way suggests that he is a "good guy." He's selfish, self-absorbed, and has a quick temper, and these personality traits don't win him any friends. As much of a jerk as Cyan is, it's always satisfying to watch the terrible (and some creative) ways he meets his (temporary) end. And by the same token, you wonder if he'll ever learn his lesson and stop being so self-absorbed, if only for his own sake.

    Matt Weight's performance as narrator is extraordinary. His narration is direct and engaging. His timing and technique are spot-on. Each character gets a unique voice, perfectly suited and expertly performed. And the irony in his tone fits the book beautifully. It makes for a stellar performance.

    "Action packed, clever, and intense"
    What made the experience of listening to The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate the most enjoyable?

    Mr. Weight's narration is superb. He uses his sharp, witty voice to full effect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cyan, the main character. He's no hero by any stretch, and is a guy you'll love to hate.


    Which character – as performed by Matt Weight – was your favorite?

    Cyan, hands down. He's gruff and stubborn, which is a blessing and a curse for Cyan.


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

    The ending. Without giving anything away, the ending was a real twist. I enjoyed how everything came together then.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a fun audiobook and a great read.
