A worthy adventure with an outstanding reader

this book was very well preformed and written with obvious skill. it has a very adventurous nearly episodic quality stringing together multiple adventures with our two heros into an interesting overarching story.

if you liked The Cycle of Arawn you will love this. and vice versa

Not fantastic but good enough to continue on

So many people love this series and though I think it has been ok I don't see or feel that magic that others do. There are so many other great epic stories, Red Rising by Pierce Brown probably being my all time favorite and very hard to compete with on any level. I also have loved the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas which is non-stop action and intrigue, twists and turns. I found this story to move very slowly, especially Book 1.

Luckily, book 2 was a definite improvement, finally got a lot more interesting and ended at a point where I do want to continue on to the next volume. I am hoping it continues on like book 2 and has more intrigue and action and less filler. The lack of any romance is a bit boring and I think unrealistic in this type of story.

Tim Gerard Reynolds is my all time favorite narrator for a male character.
