I like battles in my fantasy novels as much as the next person, but in this book, the purpose of the characters is to provide a vehicle for the battle..Show More »s rather than the fighting helping to define the characters and move the story along. Would have liked more character and plot development. Narration was pretty good. I'm almost done and not sure if I will go on to the second book.
This book has the chance to be the beginning of a great epic fantasy series. The magic system isn't really unfolded until the second half of the book..Show More » and it's quite novel. The narration is excellant and that makes it an even better listen. Definitely worth a credit.
This is much like the 1st and 2nd book, just of course, it's a continuation of the story. The story ended with a few loose ends, unanswered question..Show More »s, and a few cliff hangers, so I think there must be a 4th book in the pipeline, but I don't know. The only complaint I have is that there wasn't very much back story in the beginning to remindime what happened in the first two books. I had to restart the book 3 times after listening for two, or three hours, just for me to remember the different characters, and get up to speed. As for the narrator, I really like him and he does a great job.
