Publisher's Summary

An ancient continent is missing from Earth.

A primeval darkness threatens mankind.

A modern woman discovers her destiny.

When undercover agent Lily Thatcher is ordered to undergo a dangerous medical mind-wipe procedure prior to re-assignment, she avoids arrest and becomes a rogue agent. She quickly learns that there are much greater forces at work that are far beyond her comprehension.

Timur Demyan, formerly known as the feared Tamerlane of the ancient Tumurid Empire, has forged an alliance with a loathsome creature called the Leviathan. This beast's insatiable hunger is currently being fed by another world's few remaining souls.

For now.

Their paths meet at a showdown, but Lily knows that there's far more at stake than just her mortality. A morbid question looms in the back of her mind:

Can she prevent Earth's Apocalyptic Fate?

Wonderful narration, fair story

Conquest
By: R. M. Mulder
Narrated by: Andrea Emmes
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This is not a litRPG, it is about a fantasy that takes place sending people to another world or dimension through a portal.
I found it very interesting in the beginning and up to about half way and there it began to bog down. If it had been a print or e-book I might have skimmed portions but that is not possible with an audible book. I really wanted to like this book. It didn't really get much better and the end was a disappointment altogether.
The one good thing about the book was the narrator. If it wasn't for the narrator I might not have made it through at all. She made the voices great, all of them, even the deep gruff male voices she did perfect! She helped me stick it out when I wanted to quit. Her excitement kept me going. She was the perfect voice for this book.

Unique

Another world, mystical forces, a dash of Sci-fi Tech, a great evil and a Apocalyptic Fate all wrapped up with links to ancient prophecies. This strange mix works blending into an interesting setting where the story takes place.

R. M. Mulder has done a good job with this book. The writing is well done crafting an interesting and engaging story. The characters actions and dialogue flow naturally and the book has good pacing to keep you listing. There are no perfect characters here they are all flawed enough to be realistic.

The narration is clear and easy to listen to Andrea Emmes gives each character a unique voice. There are some olde English bits and they are done consistently which adds to the setting rather than distracting from it. There were no errors I noticed in the recording.

I prefer the first half of the book over the second as when both myself and the characters knew less about what was going on there was more of a sense of tension and mysterious threat but the second half is still good.

All and all an interesting listen that is worth putting the hours in to.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Good story with excellent narration

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a well written and narrated book. It had a great mix of characters and plot, and although it was a little slow at times, kept my interest. This was in large part due to the narrator. I would definitely be open to more if this becomes a series.

An absolute exciting read!

I received an audio copy of this book from the author and narrator in exchange for my honest opinion. I then purchased the Kindle copy to go with it. My views are in no way influenced by the gifting of the audio.

This book is definitely on my list of re-reads. While I absolutely enjoyed it, I feel like there was so much to this book that I am going to have to read it, maybe twice more, just to grasp everything. That's not a bad thing. I love books that have so much going on, making them easy to dive back into without being bored the second time around. It did take me a bit to get into this book, just from the sheer amount of information and world-building.

I loved how this story unfolded in layers. Each time I thought I knew what was going on, something new was added. It left me continually guessing what was going to happen next, a definite plus in my book. The same goes for the characters. I enjoyed how they grew throughout the story, changing and sometimes revealing bits of themselves that you didn't know earlier in the story. I wasn't too sure about Lily's character in the beginning but that was quickly resolved. As she continued throughout the story, she became one of my favorites. I also thought Alan was just a pushover in the beginning but that changed, as well. It was nice, as well, to be able to get into the villain's head and really see why he thought everything should work out his way. It always shows great writing if the author is able to make you interested in the villain's story, as well. That definitely happened here.

And the narration! Andrea Emmes, as always, did a spectacular job. I felt like I was dropped into Alan and Lily's world, watching the events unfold along with them. Her pacing was such that I was able to speed the audio up (it's one of my little quirks, don't hate!) and it still sounded natural. And she is one of those narrators who makes it seem effortless to switch voices for the characters, giving each one their own special quality. I had no trouble knowing who was speaking in this book.

This is definitely one book I will be revisiting in 2018, to soak up even more!

Interesting possibilites

The plot premise is interesting, places where the story feels very forced and jumps ahead. Overall a fair listen.


This book was provided at no cost for a fair and honest review.

Conquest

I loved the narrator in this book. | thought she did a great job of voicing the characters and making them more realistic. Unfortunately, the book was not as good. I loved it to begin with, but as the book progressed I felt it was dragging, some parts I found confusing and it has clique images and scenarios.

Good and bad

I liked the idea of this story more than the execution. The narration was at times choppy and stiff and at other times fluid. The writing was ok, but apparently I don't enjoy Old English unless it is in a classic that was written in or about that era. And even then, not much. The characters were alright but the dialog was mostly dry in my opinion. When listening to an audio book, I always try to separate the narration from the writing to see if I would have liked reading it myself more. I don't think I would have in this case, just not my cup of tea.

This book was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

Review Conquest

I choose which books to listen and review based on the sample provided, if i don’t like them i don’t review them, just choosing the ones i want. So the majority of my reviews are highly positive. For me this book is an exception, i was unable to relate to and enjoy this book.

Great Narrator

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. If not for the narrator I would not have been able to get through the story. The story was hit and miss for me. Confusing in parts and boring in others. There were some good parts but they were few. The narrator did each voice to fit the emotion that was intended. I just believe that more story would have made this a good book. Keep using this narrator. Bringing a story to life is her forte.

if you like a story with a little religion

if you like stories like angelopoulos then you will like this with it's a religious overtones as a way of helping to give bones to the story it should be religious fiction so it does have some strong video game Dimensions to it overall it's good read and they could start to Apostle new series in the religious fantasy genre
