Publisher's Summary

Vant Hu’l is cursed. Dragged to the center of a wasteland by a ruthless malevolence, the legendary warrior discovers a cavern filled with devious riddles and fiendish traps. Upon solving the labyrinth, he is confronted by a hideous creature. A beast with unimaginable abilities. A being of unspeakable evil.... Death.  

Without a shred of clemency, the demigod presents Vant with a choice: do his sinister bidding out in the world or suffer an eternity of horrifying torment. Thus begins Vant’s quest out of the badlands, through the hostile wilderness, into the clutches of twisted townships, and finally toward conflict with the vile stewards of a corrupted civilization.  

But Vant will not go it alone. In the midst of his journey, he develops an unlikely companionship with a clever and venturesome teenage girl, the expert survivalist Skii Tavee. They also form an alliance with two newfound - but questionable - companions: Kram Grammie, the sneaky con man who is as crafty as he is klepto, and an off-kilter eccentric bizarrely known as "The World’s Worst Magician". United, they set out to dispatch their foes, rescue the innocents caught in the crossfire, and unite the forces of a world gone astray, all while reconciling with their own haunting pasts.  

Mortal Enemy is an experience like no other. It is a relentless whirlwind of action and adventure. A tale of conflicted heroes and dastardly villains. A story rich with darkness and struggle, yet filled with devilishly wicked humor. It is jam-packed with nightmarish scenarios, fantastical environments, rich mythology, incredible weapons, unique technologies, and characters dripping with personality...with shocking surprises awaiting you at every turn.  

Come experience Death...if you dare.

Narrated by Reid Scott and Devin Kelley. Starring Eric Christian Olsen, Troian Bellisario, Keegan Allen, Patrick Adams, and Chris Pine. Also featuring the performances of Adetokumboh M'Cormack, Amanda Walsh, Baxley Andresen, Brendan Hines, Brett Dier, Christa B.

interesting

it was fun, and a definite good time for lovers of anime and steampunk. I loved the sound effects and the battles were interesting. would have had like to have had a lot more of an explanation as to where magic came from and the main characters in immortality but all-in-all a good read.
will be looking forward to a continuation in the Vance / death series

Possible fake 5 star reviews.

I was very shock when I got this book, I thought it would be amazing from all the high reviews, but it wasn't. The background noise was distracting and everything felt like the writer was trying to hard. I feel like he wanted to write a movie, but is settling for a book and its telling. Worst book I've read this year and that's saying something, since I just got done with Terry Goodkind.

Boring

Voice acting subpar, trying way to hard to be funny, and the action puts me to sleep. A great book for a sleep aid.

An amazing and engaging book!!!

An amazing and engaging book! The narrative voices are clear, vivid, and energizing! Great gift for someone who is trying to learn/perfect their English. I bought this book for a friend who is trying to improve his English and pronunciation. I recommend that he follow the audio on his printed book. I hope a sequel is coming soon!!!

Maybe the best SciFi I have ever read.

Perfectly balanced between action and comedy, entertaining and intellectually stimulating. Truly transcends genre. And the audiobook is an amazing production piece.

A thrill for the ear and the mind!


What a ride this audiobook was! A thrill for the ear and the mind!

This is not my usual genre of choice, the closest thing I think for me was the Harry Potter series. Having said that, doing a full cast recording was the absolute best way to present this story. I loved every minute of it. And that little, WTF, I did NOT see that happening in Chapter 37 was the absolute best.

Kudos to a stellar cast led by Eric Christian Olsen and Troian Bellesario.

Congrats to Nicholas Ryan Howard for a fun, bawdy, roller coaster of fun. Can’t wait for the sequel.
