All of Bakker's work is enjoyable in my opinion and this book is no exception. The veils are being lifted from the more mysterious characters and the feelings of dread that Ive been having since first reading The Darkness That Comes Before are being realized. This series is a bit of a slog emotionally but is richly written and well worth the emotions that it conjures. The attention to detail and description of the distant and sometimes dead world of Earwa is so well done that I can easily picture it and find myself there. Top notch writing.
The performance of this audiobook is also wonderful and has given me goosebumps on many occasions over the last few weeks. The narrator fits the tone of the story perfectly.
