Publisher's Summary

The history of our world tends to move along a shallow spiral - when completing a turn, you end up mighty close to where you started. The history of Second World, in contrast, seems to have simplified its path to a ring from which there is no apparent way out.

An unforeseen invasion lays waste to whole provinces, prompting the game's most powerful clans to ally with the emperor's guard to stop the monstrous hordes in their tracks. A war erupts that nobody saw coming, shattering the tedium of peaceful life.

All the while the world's most elusive character - once a lowly miner, now a powerful mage - finds himself in an impossible situation, and sorely in need of allies of his own as he searches for a way out.

narrator is garbage

the narrator was truly god awful. every breath he takes he slurps inward making the most u forgettable sound I've ever heard. a narrative disaster, I struggled with every sentence. the only reason I was able to finish is because I started and finished the book while working, Im a heavy machine operator and didn't have the time to dally looking for a new book to download. not to mention the fact audible had this as book one in the "series" list. it's not. it's book two. so begining was hard to start with, although I was able to get behind the story teller after the first few chapters, I still can not and will not put myself through another audibly torturing narrative.

The story builds

Some interesting new developments make this book seem a little more bizarre than I first thought it would be. I am interested to see where this is going.

if you read the first one you'll love the second

if you love the first one you'll love this one and for those of you who were reading to try and understand what your children are saying this is again I'm masterclass for parents who want to understand gaming terminology

yeah, it's alright

More of the same, good but just not yet a real story. These books are more like a single book drawn out to a trilogy. So much filler.

Really is excellent. Already brought the third

So good by halfway though I purchased the third. Am a fan of role playing and strategy games it's well thought out.
