Publisher's Summary

Enter the Darkness. Kill everyone. Save the world.

When Arthur Curie learns of a chink in the Darkness's armor, he knows it's his chance to turn the tide in a millennia-old conflict.

There's just one problem.

To take that chance, he'll have to risk his entire army, side with a former enemy, and defeat forces of Darkness far greater than he's ever faced before.

But you know what they say, no guts, no glory, right?

Sitting on the Throne

Wow, book 5. This series goes by so quick that you don't realize how deep you are in, until you come up for breath. J.A. knows how to tell a tale, and he really seems to enjoy giving Arthur a hard time.

As per usual, this book picks up where the last left off, and man, do I appreciate that. This time, we see Art and Co. have a glimmer of hope, a real chance to defeat his enemy the only problem is there is a huge risk attached to following up on that lead. Kind of like an all or nothing scenerio. But, if you know Arthur by now, then you know what he is going to do.

I really enjoy Cipriano's work, it has a depth that you might not see at first, as one might just see swords, babes, and blood. But he really can tell a tale, and you will not realize how much time has gone by until you finish the story. I do hope that he manages to get this beast under control enough to give the series a finale that it deserves.

Furlong really blasts the airwaves with his narration. He breaths life into each character, and adds to the action with just his inflections. I love listening to him. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like mewill decide based on my review.

fun and gratuitous

liked the book and series a lot. got thrown off by a 2-3 chapter block where the language and blatant "I guess I'll [have sex with] her now". Not a prude here, it just seemed the author went through one of those weeks while writing.

Another installment to the Builders Series

Book 5 of the Builder's Series is a great continuation to the previous stories. Arthur is getting all his ducks in a row and continues to build and level up. Be interesting to see how the next book continues the plot. Worth the time and the credit.

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

The end game has begun

Would you consider the audio edition of The Builder's Throne to be better than the print version?

I personally would consider it to be a better version, because Gary Furlong does an outstanding job at narrating the book and series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Builder's Throne?

I would say the encounter withe the Tree of Knowledge was quite enjoyable. Especially the voice that Gary Furlong uses (a mix of Mrs Doubtfire and the Owl from the Tootsie Pop comercials).

What does Gary Furlong bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He uses a huge amount of varied accents and inflections to make all of the characters come to life.

Any additional comments?

Overall this is a good continuation of the series, and actually progresses much further than I thought it would on the outset. If there is a complaint it would be how Arthur acts in maybe the first fifth of the book, it is out of character and is explained away as a result of things between the last two books. It just feels like it could have had a chapter or two at the start to explain these things instead of the large change without us really feeling it being necessary. After the beginning though things return to normal and it is smooth sailing in tone from then on.

There is a ton of action in this book as Arthur battles the Generals of the Darkness, and continues to try and grow stronger in the process. I especially enjoyed all of the scenes with Lucifer, Dred, Jophiel and One.

I am looking forward to the next (and maybe final?) book.

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

Avery good read & series

In this, my fifteenth read/listen from author J.A. Cipriano, it's all coming together! Outstanding & enjoyable read, especially for fans of FRP and so much more. The book continues seamlessly from book 4. Narrator Gary Furlong again lends his amazing talents to the reading of this book, his varied voice inflections adding greatly to the enjoyment of the book.

Nearing the final battle?

The Builder's Throne is the 5 book in the Legendary builder's series. I must admit I wasn't real thrilled with how Arthur, our hero, behaves at the start of this one. You'd think after everything he'd been through he'd have learned something, but he's quite rash and more than a bit abusive to his allies. I chalked it up the stress of the constant battle against the darkness. And once the story really gets going Arthur begins to act like his regular self again. The action is pretty intense as Arthur gains more and more power. I think we're finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and feel like the final battle is right around the corner.

Gary Furlong is back and once again does a very good job with the narration.

I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

A great read!

Enter the Darkness. Kill everyone. Save the world.

A great addition to this marvelous series! Because of the first two books, it took awhile before I could fully enjoy and indulge in this read but just like the author's other works; I am in love with this series as well!

Such a great, amazing and interesting addition to this series! Enjoying all the action and adventure. Love it!

The narrator does a great job of giving life to this story. So good.

Good, but ends too quickly.

In book five we find Arthur getting stronger, but still initially biting off more than he can chew. New enemies by the name of the Generals will put Arthur to the test. The augmented items Arthur has been collecting will soon pay off. This is the book of combining things together; items, stats and heroes, not to forget heaven and hell. All will be revealed in due time. I liked this volume of the story, but it did seem to end much too quickly. Where is the next book?
