Publisher's Summary

The High Citadel cannot be seen to harbor a killer. 

This is a simple truth, and one that Raz i’Syul Arro has little choice but to respect. As the winter storms fall away in favor of the North’s pleasant summer months, Raz finds himself having once more to face the cruelties of the world with spear and sword in hand. 

For the first time, though, the Monster no longer walks his path alone. Syrah Brahnt, Priestess of Laor and adopted daughter of the former High Priest of Cyurgi ‘Di himself, has joined him on his journey. Leaving all that might have been behind, they set out together in search of new lives, always striving to stay ahead of the ever-looming shadows of old enemies that hound their every step. 

Raz’s legend, though, has spread too far. After vanquishing the great Kayle of the Northern tribes, his names have begun to echo across the realms: Monster of Karth, Scourge of the South, Dragon of the North. It isn’t long before they are forced to draw on magic and steel to save themselves from the blades that seek them in the night, leaving them with little choice but to abandon everything they’ve ever known in favor of a perilous land neither would have every thought to seek. Meanwhile, waiting for them among the grasslands beyond those strange shores, a man whispers in his sleep, his iron shackles shaking as he trembles and repeats the same prophetic words over and over again. 

"By sand, then snow, then sea, the Dragon comes."

The story continues

As with the previous book, the narrator was very good. Each character's voice is distinct and consistent, and his tempos and inflections are well done.

The story picks up right where the last one ended and goes pretty much in the direction I expected.

The characters continue to develop and continue to intrigue.

I have just a few points of critique.
1, I find Sira's reactions a bit inexplicable. With what she's been through it definitely makes sense that she wouldn't want to be touched by a man. Unfortunately, we clearly see (through her thoughts) that she thinks of Raz as a man, rather than a creature or a monster. So it makes no sense that she is willing (eager, even) to be touched by him.
2. I really wish the author would choose a POV style (either omniscient or limited) and stick to it.
3. The passive construction: was coupled with "ing" verbs is really wearing on me. I don't mind seeing/hearing it occasionally when it's talking about an ongoing action, but when it's used this much is really annoys me.

Now, I really enjoyed the progression of the story in this one. There is a strong sense of what each character is after and the tensions between characters is organic and skilfully weaved together.

I very much enjoyed the compete flip that happens near the end and reach character's reactions to it are natural and believable.

And now, I just have to wait for the fifth book to be written and recorded.

This series keeps getting better.

I'm so glad to see this series is continuing. it's nice to see the hero get his girl and still the story goes on. Oh my goodness, the Urns had me in tears. Thanks for bringing these stories to audio.

Another exciting novel!

As Iron Falls by Bryce O'Connor and narrated by Mikael Naramore is book four in the series. I love the new characters they were introduced and hope some stay as part of the main characters. I love that Syrah had a bigger role in here and hope her role expands also. Like all of these books the world building and characters development is fantastic! Love the action, adventure, plot, subplots, the fight scenes, the kickbutt witch, and powerful but sorry Raz!
The narration was great too!
