Publisher's Summary

One enemy has fallen. A greater one remains.

Now it's war.

With one army defeated in a victory that will be remembered through the ages, now the Red Knight must fight again.

For every one of his allies, there is a corresponding enemy. Spread across different lands and on sea, it will all come down to one last gamble. And to whether or not the Red Knight has guessed the foe's true intentions.

With each throw of the dice, everything could be lost.

The Plague of Swords is the gripping fourth audiobook in the Traitor Son Cycle.

ugh! go back to the original narrator

The story is great. No complaints on Miles Cameron.

The narrator, however, is horrible. I finally got used to his new (and incorrect) pronunciation near the end of the last book (I mean, made up words it's understandable, though he should have listened to the first narrator and stayed consistent, but actual English, French, Latin, Italian, etc words should be pronounced correctly) but now he has changed it again. So not only is it not phonetic, or consistent with the first narrator, its now not even consistent with himself!

Same issue with the voices. From one narrator to the next, they change, sure. But not only were they all much to similar with this guy, now they aren't consistent with the last book he read. I'm glad I read the actual book first, or I wouldn't have been able to get past the narrator to get through the story.

Truly great

Number 4, the novels get better each time, I re-listened to books one thru three before reading this one, I think it made it more enjoyable.

Narrator change, beware

So the new narrator did OK, but there's some minor pronunciation that was inconsistent with the last 3 books that was particularly jarring.

We've spent 3 books heading about "Ti-con-DAGA" now we're heading about some place called "Tie-con-deNAGA". Had one mispronunciation on "minute", where he called it as a measure of time rather that a measure of unit and the context clearly meant size, but I was overly sensitive at that point.

He did decent enough on the characters though. If he had started the series of be totally happy.

The story is good, although it doesn't seem like we advanced the overall plot all that much by the end. Definitely suffers from middle child syndrome as another reader noted.

he should have stopped at book 3.

the speaker does a phenomenal job narrating the story. My problem is more with the content. It expands to quickly and has two little explanation for what's going on. I've read the three previous books and each one continues to get worse. This is by far the worst of 4.

keep them comming

This is another exteodinary book in this series. You defiantly would need to have listened to the first 3 books to know what is what in this book. Once you have that foundation , this book gets you deeper and deeper unto the twisted world of good vs. evil that is never quite as bold a line as we think it should be.

Excellent! Thank you Miles!!

Superb historical / mythological world. All the adventure excitement wonder and discovery you could want. Made even better because George R R Martin isn't lurking behind every bush to suck all the joy from the story. Best of all? No incest. What a breath of clean fresh air.

This series just gets better!

While I had felt that the first and second books in this series were terrific, the third seemed a bit brief. There is no such quibble about this book! It recaptures the excitement and drama of the first book.

There is a very broad cast of important characters in the series which are perhaps easier to manage in a written format, since one can merely search back through the pages to clarify a point. Likewise, the names of the various characters, beings, cities, and countries are also clearer in print. There was a several-month gap since I read book 3, so I initially had a little trouble getting back into the flow of this book. Being an audiobook made it a bit harder, but once I was back up to speed I found that I enjoyed listening to this version even more than reading the previous volumes. The narrator is excellent, with wonderful diction as well as a very good ability to render different characters' voices.

My sole complaint with this book was the near unbearable overuse of the term "puissant!" I have no idea why the author became so enamored with it, but any competent editor should have stopped that in its very first draft, let alone allowing this glaring overuse to continue on to the audiobook version. The author should not only chose a different editor in future, but also demand a refund for allowing this embarrassing faux pas to stand!

With that lone criticism in mind, I'm off to purchase the next audiobook in the series immediately. 📚🗣
