Honestly, I was really hoping to like this book. Without giving spoilers people die from the stupidity prior mentioned in my last review. Established personalities were changed with no regard to the story. Facts from the previous series were ignored, which I checked to make sure of. The character development was in a reverse direction from who they had been. However, my biggest problem with this book was the main character. I have never in all the books I have read hated the choices of the main character as much as I do this one. The sad fact is no person is that stupid. The motto the main character says how, "Stupid never dies." I found myself hoping he would. That one of the sub main characters would become the main instead. If for no other reason then to put us out of our misery.

I will give credit to the man reading it though. He keeps it as interesting as it can be. Even with the loose ends, bad character development, poor choices and lack of thought out options for the main character. Well done man I enjoyed listening to you, even with the poor story.

Years have passed since the last of the Dark Gods was defeated, and Lothion has entered an age of peace and prosperity. Mordecai’s oldest children have already begun to make a place for themselves, and his youngest are on the cusp of adulthood. By every outward measure, his life has been a success; he has earned his reward. However, Tyrion, the first wizard and brutal liberator of mankind, has returned with an agenda of his own, and dark things continue to stir at the edges of civilization, threatening to undo Mordecai’s accomplishments.

I have mixed feelings about this series. On one hand it isnt a bad story. On the other hand the "emotional" parts are way to drawn out, and frankly stupid. The stupid decisions some of the characters make are appalling. I get the whole wanting suspense and making it seem like things are grim. However as prior stated things get way to long and drawn out. I think it could be a heck of a lot better. The "drama" needs tweaked and the characters need work and these stories could be a lot better. honestly I wonder if I wasted money on these stories. I own the full series so far. I do like it but I also hate it.

 The country is in turmoil. With the capital city occupied, half a million refugees are on the march, looking for safety on the frontier, accompanied by Lady Flint's soldiers. But escaping war is never easy, and soon the battle may find them, whether they are prepared or not.
