A devastating quake drives the Bullik-Braunzin Clan to relocate, and soon after, unstoppable foes suddenly emerge, intent on killing them all. The warriors are forced to make battle preparations, all the while urgently attempting to solve the mystery of an enemy no one knows how to defeat. If they don't figure something out they'll be destroyed like so many who have already fallen. Will the clan prevail?

Best one yet

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

OK, so I thought book 1 was good, but this book is really a big improvement. I will admit that book 1 was a little light on character development (apart from what Deemuth went through), but this book really does a better job of character development. All things considered, I think this was a great book and a series well worth a look.

Lacking key info

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author, and I’m curious enough to listen to book one of this series. I enjoy the fact the author has created a world with tribes and animals very different from what we have.
There are enough hints to allow me a basic understanding of what happened in book one, however this book greatly lacked descriptions of the various peoples, plants and animals. Some were described, but more often than not, the author introduced an animal or humanoid by name without explanation as to what they were or looked like. Maybe that was covered in book one?? Eventually some characteristic may be mentioned, but by then, I’d attempted to develop some kind of picture in my head and was unable, so I found it hard to stay consistently connected within the story. There is potential here!

This is the third book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Mark Deakins ). So far, I’ve enjoyed each book he’s narrated. His narration style is good, and his female voices are well done.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Well done fantasy

I liked the setting and worldbuilding in this book a lot it was definitely an improvement over the first one as it was the characterization. I absolutely loved the different races and creatures that make the world feels like actual fantasy. Overall it was a great story and I will recommend it.

It Keeps Getting Better

The Great Protectors is a pre-civilization adventure in with a small clan fights to survive and grow in a deadly world. While the first book in the series did have some shortcomings, this book showed much improvement. I absolutely love the world that Gleason creates in these books, the different races, the cultural dynamics, the utterly alien animals and ecosystem; this is what fantasy should be.
My biggest criticism of the last book was the lack of setting. While this book is much improved it could still use improvement. Especially regarding the many humanoid races, as I still could not tell you how there are different or if they are humanoid at all, at least with absolute certainty. Additionally, I was critical of the characterization in that last book, as the characters were not that distinctive nor relatable, this book is much improved in this area as well. While the characterization could still be better, it does not detract from the story. Overall, I’m really glad I gave this book a chance and I would likely read future books in this series.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Morality rating- the book contains sexuality and violence.

Awesome Adventure Fantasy!

Well written and well thought out story. The entire story held true to form. Good background was given to any expansion of the progression of this tale. The narration was done with great care and annunciation
I recommend this book to ages 12 and older due to some violence
