Publisher's Summary

Part lawman, part tracker, and part magician, the Wardens are monster-hunters - tasked with protecting the people from the various, nightmarish creatures that have invaded the world of men.
 

For most of his life, 16-year-old Errol Magnus categorically rejected the idea of being a Warden. Growing up right next to the Badlands, he encountered enough bloodthirsty monsters in the ordinary course of events; he’d never seen much sense in assuming a post that required you to actively seek them out.
 

Recently, however, while competently and capably serving as Warden on behalf of his missing brother Tom, Errol’s had a change of heart. Now, for reasons of his own, he desperately wants the position. Unfortunately, being officially appointed Warden not only requires that Errol’s skills be tested by his peers, but that he also make a perilous journey to the city of Apolos in order to be examined by the high Warden himself.
 

Traveling with a group of colleagues, Errol thinks all danger is behind them once they reach the safety of the city. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Something has followed them out of the Badlands, and - one by one - his traveling companions are being viciously slain by something...inhuman. It’s up to Errol to find the creature and bring its killing spree to a halt, before he himself winds up the next victim.

A Great Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. Finally Errol gets to go to the city. And learn quickly that all is not what it seems. Life is not perfect like he thought it would be and there are in fact monster there also. After several adventures and being tested, he is more than ready to go home. But he has to stay as his travelling companion start to die. Its fast pacing and interesting characters makes it a great listen. But it has a sneaky ending. Looking forward to the next one.

Errol finds it hard to separate monsters in a city

I have submitted this review after listening to the audiobook for this Title. I find the narrator adds that extra wham to an already awesome story.

We find Errol doing he does best, protecting the people and creatures of his adopted ward, with his innate ability of understanding and sensitivity, to the why and wherewithal of the actions of both the people, but also, those that are considered monsters, by those that had not considered the reasons for some actions of these creatures, and the purpose or reasons for those actions.
In two separate situations, in this episode, we see a creature, reacting to the threat to its offspring. Errol, acting with his normal care and consideration, identified the creatures needs and helped fulfill them.

Another wonderful story

Third book in the series and still going strong. The characters and story keep growing without losing anything. With a cliffhanger leaving you wanting the next one in line to come out.

Great fantasy action!

Attack of the Aswang
(Warden #3)
by Kevin Hardman
Narrated by: Mikael Naramore
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. I really love this series so far! This young guy has been doing warden work because his brother has gone missing and he is the warden. A warden is someone that keeps the monsters at bay. He works the badlands where only the strongest of people live and all kinds of monsters try to cross into human territory. He lives with a small magical being named Berry. In this book, the main wardens come to test him to see if he is ready to be a warden. Then they take him to the city, a bit of a trek on horses. A lot of things happen there! A big surprise at the end! Great characters and world building! New characters! Loved the action and creatures!
Narration was awesome!!!

Final Exams

In the continued absence of his brother, Errol is evaluated or the position of a Warden. Battles with monsters, intrigue and a trip to the big city ensue.
This one was every bit as much fun as the previous Warden books and I loved it.

Interesting read. The Wardens are monster-hunters, "Part lawman, part tracker and part magician." When his brother Tom disappears, Errol Magnus decides to do whatever it takes become a Warden. Join Errol on his journey to becoming a Warden, as his skills are put to the test, against peers and monsters like, in Attack of the Aswang, and prepare for a surprise ending.

Another great read in the series

Attack of the Aswang (Warden, #3), my sixteenth read from author Kevin Hardman. Well-written fantasy, with well-developed characters and story-line. With each book Hardman writes the story-line gets more enticing, drawing the reader deeper & deeper. Narrator Mikael Naramore’s talented narration again adds greatly to the book’s enjoyment. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Fantastic audio!

I loved listening to Mikael Naramore. His voice for each character was varied and brought life to the fantastic story.
Kevin Had.an has written a well thought out world with amazing creatures. The story is great with great adventure and feeling behind even the creatures. Loved the story and want to hear more.

Sit back and attack this book, it is well worth it

Wow!!!! I really enjoyed this book. The author has a great imagination and it comes across so well in his writing, so much so that you know that what every weird and wonderful creature he writes about you are going to enjoy. The main character helps with the plot to, as he is so likeable and combine that with a world class narrator and you have one excellent book. Just wish it was longer.
16 year Errol is acting warden while his brother is missing and three of his peers need to put his skills to the test. But fighting monsters and keeping his village safe is not enough and he must travel through the bad lands, where the monsters live. It seems news of his previous conquests (I highly recommend both previous books) has got back to head quarters and the higher ups want to see him for themselves. On the way the travellers make a big mistake that follows them to the big city, where it seems that not even head quarters is safe from monsters and bodies start to pile up.
The narrator is one of my favourite readers and I would get the book just because I know he will do an excellent job with the story-good job the story is excellent too.

Best of the three Warden Books

I've read Books 1-3 of the Warden series and this is the best of the bunch. It has a cohesive plot and gives everybody a shot at redemption; and whilst it leaves the way open for a fourth book that really is unnecessary.

The narrator does a good job. Recommended

Errol never particularly wanted the job of Warden

Errol never particularly wanted the job of Warden, but luckily his brother trained him well before he went missing. Now that his abilities are about to be tested, he realises he really does want to keep his position. During his encounters with the creatures of the Badlands, Errol is starting to see that they can be more than just mindless killing machines.
I was glad that this book was a little longer than the others. I don't want to give any spoilers but I can't believe that ending!

Draws you in

This book continues the Warden series. It starts as most of the books with Errol going out to take care of a routine issue. It gets more involved when he is summoned to the Warden headquarters for his evaluation. Events then proceed and he is to learn that the world is not as he had imagined it to be. He becomes involved in tracking down a monster who has killed members of his traveling team and discovers that they also have emotions beyond what he has ever imagined. A very good book that kept my attention from start to finish. Except for the length it could be a one sitting listen. The narrator did a fantastic job as he always does.I very much hope the next book will also appear in audio.

This book was provided free of charge for review and this review was gratefully given.

New arc adds more depth to the world

In this third book in the series, the headline monster is probably less important than the world-building that vastly expands the reader's knowledge of the wider society of wardens including a number of new characters that seem likely to return in future books and the introduction of a new arc that indicates that there is something special about Errol, who has also now realised that he likes being a warden and living where he does too.

The narrator's performance is a good one that nicely enhances the overall book with a clear and distinctive tone that helps to bring the characters to life even more.

Overall, another enjoyable book in this series that also sets things up nicely for future books too.

Satisfactory Story

Some well timed humour moments making this a great tale to listen too ,even if the story plot and ending was a little obvious.
We find out a bit more about the wendigo dagger and our wardens fame, and its meaning along with meeting some well constructed characters.
Very enjoyable listen and a quality narration.
