In The Unholy Consult, the Men of the Great Ordeal have been abandoned by Anasurimbor Kellhus, and the grand crusade has dissolved into cannibalism and chaos. When Exalt-General Proyas, the Prince-Imperial Kayutas at his side, attempts to gain control of the lost Men and continue their march to Golgotterath, it rapidly becomes clear that the lost Lord and Prophet is not so easily shaken from the mission.

Reviewer Josh said exactly what I was going to say. I have a love hate relationship with these books. Bakker makes his point then drones on and on about it babbling about until you start to zone out. these 7 books could have been 4 but he likes to hear himself ramble. He must get paid by the word. If I had $1 for every time he said the word crotch I could have paid for the books. 1/2 of the time it doesn't every make any sense. Like masticating anus, what the hell does that even mean. I am still lost. I keep going back to the next book hoping for some clarity. Still trying to figure out why all the 3 youth went to the Non men other than to let you know just how crazy they were. That seemed like hours of my life I will never get back. What was the ending about? you spend 7 books leading up to the confrontation and then just kind of glaze over it. Some characters do not seem to have any point at all. I am sure there are books being written for the next chapter of the No God. but I don't know if I can sit through them

I will be honest. I would have put the book down if I was the one reading it. I listened to the first 3 or 4 hours and almost returned it. there were so many puzzle pieces being dropped and it seemed to take awhile for them to come together. Then they started to mesh and I found I couldnt stop listening. I listen to Audible during my drive into work. I found myself in my car at lunch listening to the book. Hang in there it is a great series and I am afraid I will finish all 4 books and have to wait on the 5th.
