Publisher's Summary

If it's war you want...find here the best of military epic fantasy as the best-selling Saga of the Forgotten Warrior series continues.

The Great Extermination has begun.

In the Capitol, Grand Inquisitor Omand Vokkan hatches a plot to kill every member of the untouchable caste in all of Lok, down to the last man, woman, and child. As a member of the Order of Inquisition, Vokkan has no official say in the creation of Law, but he has powerful allies willing to do his bidding. Through them, he has convinced the Judges that the genocide will be swift, complete, and without complication. Nothing is farther from the truth.

Lord Protector Devedas has sworn to uphold the Law. Once, he and the traitor Ashok Vadal had been like brothers. Now, he hunts Vadal and the Sons of the Black Sword, heretics and rebels who seek to live outside the rule of the Law. All Devedas must do is find and kill his best friend and order will be restored to Lok.

The rebels seek the secret kingdom spoken of by the Prophet Thera, a paradise where water is pure and food plentiful, where there are no castes, where the people rule themselves and are not slaves to the Capitol. Ashok Vadal is not sure he believes in such a Paradise, but he - along with his allies - does seek refuge in the rebellion’s hideout in Akershan. But Vadal, a former High Protector who has turned his back on the corrupt Law, will not merely wait meekly, hoping that fleeing to Akershan will spare the rebellion from the clutches of the Great Extermination. No, if it’s a war the Capitol wants, Vadal, who has faced down gods and demons, will be all too willing to give it to them.

The epic saga continues

Destroyer of Worlds is the epic third book in the best-selling Saga of the Forgotten Warrior series by the fantastic award-winning author Larry Correia. Once again, the amazing Tim Gerard Reynolds returns to the battlefield and delivers a top-notch performance.

Almost five years ago I fell in love with this world and its characters vividly portrayed by Mr. Correia and since then, I followed eagerly in their footsteps, attentively trying to be part of these heart stopping adventures.

With this third book author Larry Correia pulls the constant reader even further into this marvellous world filled with magic, brave warriors and haunted by a seemingly never ending war.

Fast-paced, unputdownable, entertaining and completely thrilling, Destroyer of Worlds is the best novel in this already outstanding saga.

There is no better ending than this book.

Book 1 was good. Book 2 was great. Book 3....amazing! I can predict most stories, but this had a few surprises. Overall, as close to perfect as you can get.

Masterful. Simply Masterful.

This book (and the series) are masterpieces. I literally don’t think there is one thing wrong with them. They are on par with Tolkien. The only things not glowing I have to say about it is Ashok is a bit vexing at times. And the way the plot is developing there are going to be ample opportunities for Heartbreak. And I despise heartbreak in what are meant to be entertainment. Reality is heartbreaking enough without it pervading into entertainment. But seriously, you need to buy these books. Maybe wait until more are out though because once you start, You WON’T want to stop for anything.

A almost plus

I definitely liked this book the most out of the three. There is a lot of character development. I think this is worth the credit for sure. Get the book.

Larry! What you have done to us?!

Possible spoiler alert: Here I was, waiting patiently for the delayed release of the "conclusion" of The Saga of the Forgotten Warrior, and...

IT ISN'T THE END! Holy crap! What a book, what an ending. Or should I say, what a cliffhanger!

Larry, get to it, please. We need book four! STAT!

Drags on more than the previous two books

I was under the assumption this was going to be the finale of the forgotten warrior saga. It is not, it's simply more story building. The book did manage to keep my interest, however just barely. It's borderline boring and even the climactic fight scene wasn't that great. Thus far, the second book, house of assassins, is definitely the best one. Hopefully the next book or books, will bring back the intensity of that one.

Boring

Larry Correia is by far my favorite author. I read the last 2 in the series and hoped this one would be better but it was extremely slow and boring. the Monster Hunter style of writing is awesome. Tim Gerard Reynolds (yawn). Sorry Mr. Reynolds. Have you retired Larry? Are you like a 70's rock band that has a few albums and fades away. Come on dude Show us your Fire!

Great Story. Enjoyable listen.

Larry Correia is on of the best. He’s an amazingly versatile author. The black sword series is nothing like his other works, but I think it puts him in the top echelon of fantasy writers. Just read or listen to it.

I just finished Destroyer of Worlds and am mourning the need to wait for the next book in the series.

Still very good, will next part turn Sf?

The story of black-hearted Ashok is one of the best fantasy stories I have read. But while this third instalment gets us closer to an end, it seems we are far from there yet. Also, as seemed likely in the previous parts there is a more technologically advanced history of the world and much of the “magic” is explained by that.

I am fine with that, but worry that maybe it becomes more SF as more of the story is revealed, and I am not sure I think that is where I’d like it to go.

Still, action sequences are fantastic, the story really flows and things happen logically (well, it IS fantasy...) so it’s not hard to listen to.

I however hope that there will be an end fairly soon as I fear for example some repetition creeping in. Ashok in a deadly prolonged fight and a miraculous victory or rescue can become a bit stale, despite the drama of each occasion.

Can't wait for book 4!

The lore, world and characters are truly amazing, masterfully crafted. Very rarely I get so engrossed in a book that I can't put it down.
If you liked the first 2 books then defenetly get this one too. It's just as good if not even better in all aspects (especially the battles).
Loved it!

Offence Was Given

This review covers all three books.

What a whirlwind of action, with a few naps inbetween. I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy(?) and would highly recommend it. I liked the way the characters were developed along the way; Ashok’s inner struggle and his gradual enlightenment that he might be worth so much more than he has been made to believe himself to be; Mother Dawn’s space travelling; and Jagdish’s inner strength, to mention just a few. Magic, intrigue, politics and corruption also abound. There is certainly no lag in Book 3, as can sometimes happen. However, I now find it was not a trilogy as the ending suggests there is a fourth book to come, or even more! Would I recommend this trilogy! What do you think! 😀😀 My only complaint would be we were led to believe this to be a trilogy, but it isn’t. There is no sign of Book 4, or if there will be one!

Narration was excellent, as expected from Tim Gerard Reynolds and I do hope the author keeps him as narrator for any future books in this series as he really did bring the characters to life.

Another great read

This third audiobook was thoroughly enjoyable and carry’s on the story from the 2nd.

I was disappointed that there’s a 4th audiobook needed as it ends abruptly but hey it’ll be worth waiting on.

The narration was spot on once again and hope it continues in the series

Highly recommend if you enjoyed Larrys other works

Very well written - and performed

I have to say that this is the best narration and one of the best written book i have had the pleasure to listen/read. The only problem is that it is not completed, like the "name in the wind" or "dance of ice and fire" they are not completed which is so disappointing. If you are thinking of listening / reading these books dont hesitate. Enjoy

Good story line but I had hoped it would finish

Sadly we are truly looking at a saga, an never ending stoty. Why do authors become so involved in their characters that they cannot complete a storyline.
