Publisher's Summary

A failed mage turned outlaw must use guile and a handful of spells to challenge a dangerous rival in the second audiobook of an exciting adventure fantasy series from Sebastien de Castell.

Forced to live as an outlaw, Kellen relies on his wits and his allies to survive the unforgiving borderlands. When he meets a young woman cursed with a deadly plague, he feels compelled to help. But her secrets draw powerful enemies, and it's not long before Kellen is entangled in a conspiracy of blackmail, magic, and murder. 

As the bodies begin to pile up, Kellen fears he's next. 

The second novel in a compelling six-title series, bursting with tricks, humor, and a whole new way to look at magic.

Great sequel- Keeps the pace from the last book

When it comes to sequels there is always a tipping point after the first book. Many simply fall flat, and can never match what made the first book good. That's not the case with Shadowblack. This book takes the riding off into the sunset finish of the last book and crashes it back down into reality.

I'd say the only draw back is the first 15- 20 minutes where the author is trying to acclimate the reader to the characters.

As for the narrator, the guy was just as good as last time.
