The Mortal Plane has long been divided among the servants of Light and Darkness, suffering a thousand years of atrocity by both sides. When one god finally rose up and slew another, The Pact was formed, forestalling any further damage to the realms of men. But now, over the last few decades, signs of the Demons and their mindless Accursed minions have dwindled to an all-time low. It seems that after a thousand years of conflict the Gods of Light and the Gods of Darkness have finally tired of the bloody war. Or have they?

What made the experience of listening to Wrath of the Fallen the most enjoyable?

To be fair I haven't finished. however the book is captivating and thought provoking. It helped me stay awake on a long drive which is where I tend to listen to audio books. This is great fantasy novel that has kept me enthralled.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wrath of the Fallen?

I haven't finished yet so I don't know however if the end is going where I think it is, the whole book will be quite memorable.

What about Finn J.D. John’s performance did you like?

I read the complaint about not liking the "ghost whisper" for the characters' inner monologues; however I enjoyed it. I think it was a great addition to the listening experience. I could differentiate between the characters and their thinking vs speaking. To me this was a huge improvement to other audible listening. In some books they make no distinction of thought or voice and that too often gets confusing. It also left out the redundancy of having to say "Trent thought to himself" or "Ren said."

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"The world is out of balance, and only chaos reigns."
