In this heart-stopping installment of the Demon Cycle, humanity continues to struggle against the demon plague - even as survivors hold out hope that the Deliverer will save them all. On the night of the new moon, the demons rise in force, seeking the deaths of two men, both of whom have the potential to become the fabled Deliverer, the man prophesied to reunite the scattered remnants of humanity in a final push to destroy the demon corelings once and for all.

I enjoyed the book except of the graphic sex scenes which felt more like a romance novel.

In a debut that is sure to attract enormous attention, the first novel of The Vault of Heaven takes us to a world of wonders and terrors, where an ancient evil threatens to break out of the bounds that have contained it for generations. When the gods created the world, one created monstrous creatures so powerful that he was doomed to live for eternity in the proscribed Bourne where his most odious creations were to be held, kept from the rest of the world by a magical veil that they could not breach.

Bad story and worse voice acting. I was bored. I wish I could have this time back.

You define life or it defines you. In Shawn Speakman’s case, it was both. Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Shawn quickly accrued a massive medical debt that he did not have the ability to pay. That’s when New York Times best-selling author Terry Brooks offered to donate a short story that Shawn could sell to help alleviate those bills—and suggested he ask the same of his other writer friends. Unfettered is the result: An anthology built in order to relieve that debt, featuring short stories by some of the best fantasy writers in the genre.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

There are some great stories in this book and some that leave you scratching your head about how anyone published them. Particularly bad are The Coach With Big Teeth, Mud Boy and Dogs. My advice just skip those.

On the other hand The Sound of Broken Absolutes is wonderful.

Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

Some yes others never.

Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

yes

Was Unfettered worth the listening time?

Some of it was and some of it wasn't.
