Publisher's Summary

The Last Witchking and Other Stories contains six tales set in the epic fantasy world of A Throne of Bones and A Sea of Skulls.

The title story concerns the hidden heir to a fallen race of magicians, who learns his father's dark lore as he pursues vengeance against those who destroyed his people. "The Hoblets of Wiccam Fensboro" is a tale of survival and the triumph of simple decency in the face of brutality and defeat. "The Wardog's Coin" is a gritty first-person account of war and magic, goblins, and secret weapons.

In "Qalabi Dawn", a new nation is formed from warring demon-spawned tribes, then set against a legion of Amorrans led by a dangerously cautious man. The rich fantasy continues in "A Magic Broken", as an undercover magician faces a new and dangerous town - and a team of enterprising dwarves - in pursuit of a mysterious woman forced into prostitution. Finally, the Hugo-nominated "Opera Vita Aeterna" tells the story of an elven sorcerer and a religious monk, and how they discover that the transformational power of friendship can be the highest and most potent magic of all.

Very pleasantly surprised

I listened to The Last Witchking & Other Stories. I was quite pleasantly surprised. I'm not often a fan of darker fiction, but the stories in the collection varied widely in setting and theme, even though all are set in the universe of A Throne of Bones. I liked the narrator also. I'm glad to hear that the audio version of A Throne of Bones is coming soon, as I'd prefer to hear it rather than read it. The narrator is the same.

A great collection of short stories

The narrator is easy to listen to, and the prose is smooth. The hobbit/goblin story was also quite funny. well worth the time.

Outstanding quality in writing. Pulls you in

Vox Day, a name never mentioned in mainstream circles, probably because he never does book tours. These stories are very well written, and standalone as pillars in fantasy literature. I look forward to reading/listening to more works. My interest is peaked.

Please sir, may I have another?

Need more AoDaL Vox haha hate to be a slave driver but hurry up with the extended of SoS.

All seriousness, if you haven't gotten Throne of Bones already your depriving yourself of a excellent story to rival all of middle Earth's tales, in a world that is actually believable.

Also, I realize that genius is hard to rush, keep on doing what you're doing Vox. The Darkstream is pretty important to I guess. Haha Thank you sir.

Get your feet wet.

These short stories are a really fun start. I could tell there is much more to come and now I have listened to "A Throne of Bones" too and am looking forward to "A Sea of Skulls."

The world is engaging. The characters are well put together. The story lines don't drag. I would recommend this to anyone.

Would recommend but for language

A Throne of Bones and A Sea of Skulls were enjoyable books, so I had hopes for The Last Witchking as well. I would have recommend this title, too, but for the occasional crude language, and blasphemy in chapter 4 (at which point I stopped listening). Vulgarity adds nothing to a story and I wish modern authors did not feel the need to resort using it.

Excellent.

From start to finish the Last Witch King was riveting. Narration was top notch as well.
