Publisher's Summary

Heroes shall rise and fall, the earth shall be stained red, and the fate of the Banished Lands will be decided once and for all in A Time of Courage, the final audiobook in acclaimed fantasy author John Gwynne's Of Blood and Bone trilogy.

The demon king Asroth has been freed from his iron prison. Now, alongside his dark bride, Fritha, he plans to conquer the whole of the Banished Lands.

In the shadows of Forn Forest, Riv and the surviving Ben-Elim desperately search for a way to unite those who remain against Asroth's vast army.

Far in the west, Drem is with the Order of the Bright Star, besieged by a demon horde. Their fragile defenses are on the brink of shattering, but they know that it is better to fight and die than to live without hope.

And across the Banished Lands, armies are heading south, to settle ancient grudges and decide the fate of humanity.

Worth Every penny.

I love how merciless the author is with killing the characters. No one is safe, plot armor does not exist in this story. The ending makes everything worth.

Epic high fantasy series!

Just a great, fast moving and high stakes series. Great distinctive characters and lively, energetic narration. The lady third of the book is absolute bananas! Breakneck pacing, vivid battle and combat scenes and the best "Big Boss" type fight ever!

Ok, not brilliant.

I wanted to love this series, because I really enjoyed "The Faithful and the Fallen" books. This trip to the Banished Lands left me a little cold. After hanging in there until the 3rd book, I realized that I really didn't care that much about any of the characters. I thought that this time around there was just way too much attention to every gory detail of the violence, and it was not offset by any real character development. The first series was not perfect....a little too much "telling" rather than "showing" and I'm not a fan of the Cockney accent the reader sometimes randomly used. All the same, Corban, Storm, Cywen, Veradis, and Maquin were written in ways that I couldn't wait to see what happened to them, and I felt invested in their stories. These books just didn't seem to have that magic ingredient. To me, these characters just fell somewhat flat.

The was a lot of action, but again, would have been better if I cared about what happened to the people involved. I finished the series, but it was more just for the sake of finishing up. I'm sorry to have to write such a review, because as I said before, I was a big fan of Mr. Gwynne's first series, but this just didn't measure up, IMHO.

Great sequels to a great series

This has become one of my favorite stories. There are epic battles, great character development displayed by both the good and bad sides, and all while read wonderfully with each character having their own voices.
