Publisher's Summary

A man whom all men fear...

General Dieter von Adolwulf has led the Scarlet Army of Kria to victory for the past decade, holding the infamous field known as the Regenbogen against Kria's hated enemies - the deceptive Illussor and the ruthless Salharans. War has waged between the three nations for longer than anyone can remember, but no one has held the Regenbogen as well as the notorious Wolf of Kria and his fearsome army.

A man who fears nothing...

Returning home at the end of the year, the Scarlet Army is attacked in the dead of night by a single man who manages to kill hundreds before he is finally captured. A Salharan soldier with no name, no purpose but to kill, he refuses to bend to the Wolf who takes him prisoner and forces upon him a despicable Krian name.

A man with nothing to lose...

When the rest of his army is slaughtered by Illussor soldiers desperately seeking his prisoner, Dieter determines to hold fast - both for answers and in revenge for the men he lost. But answers and revenge are hard to come by when surrounded by secrets and treachery, and the man least likely to kill him is the prisoner who most wants him dead.

second chance

the first time I tried listening to this book I couldnt stand the narration so I bought the Kindle version and read that. I loved it so much I gave the audio a second chance. the narrative could have been better but was not near as bad as I remember.

Entertaining, Action packed, & well written.

A riveting tale, it is enjoyable start to finish. The characters are rich and dynamic. There is just enough of a lead to make the plot twist believable but surprising.

Tedious

I got the sense that this story was written as serialized fan fiction. Not sure if there was an editor here. Most of the story was told through really tedious expository conversations, there were huge holes in the logic and story world and both romances were really superficial and unsexy. Despite a very good narrator, this story was a real slog to finish.

One of my favourite audiobooks

Okay, so I'm just finished my third listen of this book, and I love it just as much as I did the first time. And look, I'm biased: you can sort of tell this is one of Derr's earlier works, a little less streamlined and polished than more recent ones but honestly I love it a bit more for that.

This is a slow-burn plot-heavy enemies-to-lovers queer fantasy romance, and if that description seems like your thing then give this book a listen. It's so, so good. There's a whole plot involving magic and armies and kingdoms and so on, but the focus is on two sets of lovers: Sol and Ia, and Beraht and Dieter. Sol and Ia fall fairly gently and naturally in love while being swept away by the plot, while Beraht and Dieter take most of the centre stage and... Also they hate each other for most of the book. Which makes it so *strange* that they keep saving each other's lives.

A quick word on the narration: I actually love the narration. It doesn't sit blandly in the background, and if that's what you prefer it might take a while to get into the rhythm of it, but I really like the voices Sean Crisden used for the characters and the whole style of narration really worked for the book, I think.
