Aaron and his companions prevented the assassination of a queen, but in doing so, they angered an ancient evil. Angered it, wounded it, but did not kill it, for such evil never truly dies. An army greater than any the world has ever known marches bringing steel and death with it, and somewhere, a 1,000-year-old evil lurks in the darkness, plotting and bending its will toward revenge.

If life has taught the jaded sellsword Aaron Envelar anything, it’s that hope is for fools and causes are a sure remedy for breathing. But when his latest job leads him to the corpse of a prince and a conspiracy that threatens to destroy the entire realm, Aaron is forced to choose sides in a war he doesn’t want, between forces he doesn’t understand. Thrust into a world of mythical assassins, a madman with superhuman strength, and a nagging ball of light with a superiority complex who claims to be the embodiment of compassion, Aaron takes on his hardest job yet - staying alive.

I listen to audiobooks every day for at least 4 hours mainly historical fiction and fantasy. My favorite authors are Larry Correia, Bernard Cornwell, Jim Butcher and Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. But I've listened to alot of George Martin, Kel Kade ,Anthony Ryan, Ra Salvatore and many others this author is by far my newest favorite his characters are interesting and the dialogue is great. the story along with a solid performance by steven brand make this well worth listening to. the only down side is there is currently only about 10 hours of stories available . I can't wait for the next listen.

Bernard Cornwell is a master. This series has surpassed the sharpes series as my favorite and the last 2 books in the Saxon series are the best yet. Matt Bates does an amazing job and the stories are well written and exciting the only problem is I go crazy waiting for the next installment. What I love about Cornwell is he doesn't introduce politically correct characters just to expand readership he stays true to history and true to his fans. He is my favorite writer and this is his best series.

In this brand new series from the author of the Clockwork Empire series, a hopeless outcast must answer Death's call and embark on an epic adventure... Although Danr's mother was human, his father was one of the hated Stane, a troll from the mountains. Now Danr has nothing to look forward to but a life of disapproval and mistrust, answering to "Trollboy" and condemned to hard labor on a farm. Until, without warning, strange creatures come down from the mountains to attack the village.

Would you try another book from Steven Harper and/or P. J. Ochlan?

No

Has Iron Axe turned you off from other books in this genre?

It's getting this way

Have you listened to any of P. J. Ochlan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Did Iron Axe inspire you to do anything?

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story up until the introduction of the gay character I don't listen to audio books especially fantasy for some great societal commentary I just want great characters great dialog and excellent battles. I'll stick to authors like Bernard Cornwell and Michael Sullivan.
