In Eoriel, the High Kings are legend: rulers who once stood against the darkness and ruled the world for two thousand turns of peace and prosperity. In the long turns since their fall during the Sundering, Eoriel's civilization has faded. Dark men and darker beings have torn down and destroyed the old works. While some have held out against the grind of history, other places have been reduced to primitive tribes of savages, worshiping dark spirits and demons as their gods.

I had a hard time getting into this book for some reason, which i regret now that i'm finished with it. The book gets more intresting abit later on but the characters where very solid and likeable all the wway through. The only thing i have to complain about is that there are no more Audiobooks from this series out on audible yet, but that will hopefully change when more people have bought this one. Recommended!

Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

A man is not great because he is a good man. A great man can be good, evil, or any shade of gray in between. A great man is a man who sees the world around him, and changes it to suit him, instead of letting it change him to suit itself. Lowin Fenly didn't want to be a hero, and he never thought of being a villain, but sometimes the path that must be walked by great men leads to dark places. Body twisted by dark magic, the scribe-turned-Knight must learn to control the beast he is becoming, or risk losing the few remnants of humanity he clings to.

The narrator did an amazing job with the characters, giving them the feel of personality and depth that some narrators sometimes don't. The story was very intresting and things didn't always go the way you thought they would wich was a pleasant surprise. The thing i liked the most about this audiobook was the way the characters gain their powers, not just the usual train hard, become a wizard, explode the world thing, but something original. I hope the other books of this series gets released on audible soon!

Blood and Steel begins the story of Cor Pelson. You see, Cor is a Dahken - a race of magical warriors long though dead by both the beneficent priests of the Shining West and the necromancers of the Loszian Empire. Shortly after he was born Cor changed - the coughing attacks came, and his skin changed to the gray of a corpse. He is different, and there were those who took notice.

Where does Blood and Steel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's definitely one of the better books i have listened to this year.

What other book might you compare Blood and Steel to and why?

I would compare this book to similar ones such The Renegade Series, The Sorcerer's Ring, The Godling Chronicles and so on. It is quite unique in some ways but it has the same feel as those books.

Any additional comments?

It has quite a unique storyline with good/bad people and the ones that are "neutral". I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Epic Fantasy stories and i hope they release the rest of this series soon.

I'm the first Mage born in 200 years. I've turned a city into an island, erected a barrier around an entire country, and awakened a war hero from a 200 year old slumber. Prophecies have marked my coming. Kings and nations have begged for my aid in times of peril. I hold the power to create and destroy nations. My name is Rhebengarthen. To my friends and family, I'm just Garth. The world knows me as the Advent Mage. And despite the rumors that you might have heard about me, this is what really happened.

Would you listen to Jaunten again? Why?

I will definitely listen to this book once more.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jaunten?

I don't want to give away any of the goodies in this book, but i found this book very good overall.

Have you listened to any of Mark McClain Wilson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to "kingslayer" where he did a great job. Definitely one of the better narrators i have listened to in a while.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Everyone who loves books/series such as: the name of the wind, the wheel of time, the legend of drizzt, saga of recluse and so on will probbably like this book. The only "bad" thing would be that only the first book from this series is out in audioformat so far, and i hope that audible will release the rest of the series ASAP.
