Publisher's Summary

Separated and miserable, Thanquil Darkheart and Jezzet Vel'urn both have their reasons for wanting to leave the Dragon Empire. Jezzet flees from the wrathful fury of an empress scorned while accompanied by the ever insidious Drake Morrass, and Thanquil sets out to find and judge his one heretical loose end.

The Price of Faith concludes the acclaimed The Ties That Bind trilogy by Rob J. Hayes. Look for books 1 and 2, The Heresy Within and The Color of Vengeance, published by Ragnarok Publications.

Very dark & enjoyable fantasy

What did you love best about The Price of Faith?

The author kept it on pace with the previous two books, threw in some twists, and brought the different story threads together to brilliant conclusion.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I picked someone else to answer this same question for a previous book; this time it's Jacob. The main characters certainly had paid a Price of Faith," but the very powerful Templar Jacob also had his price, albeit different. Great book title, and really makes one question why we sacrifice for something we believe in, especially when it may not be "right"

Which scene was your favorite?

Jacob's fight scene near the end of the book. The viewpoints of the battle from the other characters were hellish, terrible, and fantastic to envision, making me immediately worry how any of the good guys would survive...then we switch to Jacob, dancing in the ballroom, calm happy, and serene... <br/><br/>Confused? Read the books! It's a brilliant twist by the author, giving us a powerful, mad, unstoppable force created by a council of "Inquisitors"...I can't say more, but I loved it.

Any additional comments?

Rob Hayes' three book series was awesome! I can't give it enough praise. I've spent most of 2017 looking for something off the beaten path of normal fantasy - I'm a bit tired of the coming of age and cookie cutter / copy-cat Lord of the Rings type books.<br/><br/>I searched for 2 things: a dark world with evil beings, magic, and characters who weren't purely good as the protagonists, and second, since this is audible, I wanted a top-notch narrator. I found a few books would fit one or another, but this series fit both for me, and the author, with stellar narration by Gerard Doyle, created a world and characters that I will miss hearing about on my drives to and from work. If an author makes me miss his characters when it's over, that's 5 stars.

Thank you Rob Hayes, excellent work!

If you could sum up The Price of Faith in three words, what would they be?

I love Darkheart!

What did you like best about this story?

Good drama and heroes. Excellent story, and finally a feelgood grimdark fantasy, if there is such a thing. I am tired of partially despising the characters in some of the contemporary grimdark works out there. Rob Hayes gets it right in these books.

Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favorite?

Darkheart is a character I will follow whenever Rob Hayes wishes cast him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Who has the time? But I was often thinking about the the characters. There is still much backstory left untold.

Any additional comments?

Imagine a Jorg Ancrath with integrity and loyalties, and Bloody Nine with self control and some sense of honor -- you will find them in these books. Grimdark without the disappointments -- is it still grimdark?

Fantastic all the way around!

The most memorable moment always involves Anders. Anders' character is very smart, wise, intelligent, and he has a great sense of humor. all of the other characters are wonderful.

Im deeply saddened on one lose though...actually two losses. One the series ended. There has to be more books coming. Two, I wont say because I dont want to be a spoiler. lets just say it what Im referriing to is very sad.

The entire series is very good. The reader if the book awesome. love his accents and the ability to make characters distinguished.

This is a must read fir lovers of grimdark fantasy.

great book, but moral dilemma too rushed

The only complaint I have is that Thanquil's moral dilemma seems forced into the story rather clumsily. It was almost like the editor told the author "Everything looks great! We just want one tiny little change, so do this major thing but we need it tomorrow, we're sending it to the printer!"

I don't have an issue with there being a dilemma, nor with what it was or really how it ended. But seriously, the dilemma was initially proposed, resolved, and consequences finished in less time than it took to type up this review. There was not enough time to process what was happening before the story moved on.
