Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Probably not. No complete plot. Book 1 does not stand on it's own and wasn't compelling enough for me to pick up Book 2. The book was actually funny, just not... an actual complete novel.

MJS is great, the audio; not so much

The story is great, though I wouldn’t put it at the top of MJS’ works. My preference would be to see this storyline conclude and to focus on the Novron timeline and possibly a post Riyria timeline.

This book needs to be re-recorded. The second half of the book has frequent patches where the sound is distorted. One minute the audio is fine and the next it sounds like they are reading through a paper towel cylinder.

You won't want to read this book out of order. The title is very fitting, and frankly, it's the best book in the series up to this point! Jim and James have done it once again.
