The epic battle between humankind and their godlike rulers finally ignites in the masterful follow-up to Age of Myth and Age of Swords. The alliance of humans and renegade Fhrey is fragile - and about to be tested as never before. As the Fhrey overlords marshal their army and sorcerers to crush the rebellion, old loyalties will be challenged while fresh conspiracies will threaten to undo all that Persephone has accomplished.

  • A disappointing offering that does not capitalize on one of the author's key strengths

Highly recommended and addictive! No underage listeners though there is a lot of cussing and adult content.

Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his will. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

As a person who is southern, this is wrong. Ya or you is singular. Y'all is a contraction for ye all, meaning two or more. No native southerners that I have ever heard of use y'all as a plural pronoun.

Godfrey has been poisoned by his brother by a very rare and potent poison, and his fate lies in Gwendolyn's hands, as she does whatever she can to save her brother from death. Gareth has fallen deeper into a state of paranoia and discontent, hiring his own tribe of savages as a personal fighting force and giving them Silver Hall - ousting The Silver and causing a rift in King's Court that threatens to blow up into a civil war. He also schemes to have the fierce Nevaruns take Gwendolyn away, selling her off in marriage without her consent.

The narrator was okay, but the narrative was good. I just don't like how much kissing there was.

many times there were many times during the performance that a bunch of the first words would be cut off. instead of saying she the audio would come out and make it sound like he or the first word or even the first sound of the main character's name would be cut off.
