    "A good story"

    Mr. Reynolds is one of my favorite narrators. It is amazing how one individual can make a story come to life.

    "Great book!"

    The way the author writes is incredoble, and I love reading his books. I will say that this book took a long path through a lot of nothing, but I wouldn't be the least surprised to find out that it impacts the story later on. Because that's how he writes. I give it 4.5 stars overall! Also, the ending will leave you dying. Have fun!

    "Excellent story, wonderful narration"

    Another adventure lived. I love the story, the characters, the narrator is excellent and I'm sad there's only one more volume to go.

    "Great story!"

    Action, comedy, some loss/sorrow, overall a great story. A bit idealistic which is something I like, never too dark or gorey, nor too sexual/etc. the situations are believable enough and the story goes well with some twists and turns.

    "Classic bridge novel"

    Good bridge between first and third books. If you read the first book and are considering the second, you should be aware reading this book is a commitment to just go ahead and finish the series. It cliffhangs empire style!! Overall I definitely recommend this book!

    "Transparent storyline."

    You'll see it coming for miles. Very disappointed in book 4, forced story telling that drags you through disappointment.

    "As good as the first volume"

    I was very happy to discover that the second book was just as great as the first. The author found ways to keep the story exciting and moving along. Narration as usual was excellent.

    "sensational"

    I loved this book. I struggle with new books and authors not meeting my expectations, but these books are great. The characters are witty, and humorous, while the story gripping. Fantastic listen

    "Holy smokes this is good!"

    If you're looking for an exceptional audiobook with a narrator that is second to none, then you've found it! This book series reminds me a lot of Wheel of Time in how I feel extremely vested in all of the characters. Very well done in ALL respects!
