Publisher's Summary

The gods had chosen the Domdur to rule the world and had chosen Malledd to be their champion among the Domdur. They had not asked Malledd whether he wanted the job. Now a wizard has raised an army of the undead to overthrow the Domdur Empire, and the world awaits the divine champion who is to save them - but will Malledd come? And if he does, can he be the savior the Domdur expect, or has the gods' favor turned elsewhere?

A bit long to get there, but ultimately satisfying

While the Hero may be the most reluctant I've seen, the climax is ultimately satisfying and the story remained interesting throughout. Recommended.

Not as engaging as other worlds by this author

I was happy to actually feel a little bit curiosity to know how it ended, which led to my listening to the whole book... but I never really felt connected to any of the charades, unlike some of the other books this author had written.
The narrator did a fantastic job, though!

It’s okay

Took a long time to get there. Pretty predictable no real twists it’s the hero’s journey. The BBEG (bug bad evil guy)loses for no reason other than plot armor. I doesn’t have any ties to the obsidian chronicles if that’s what you’re looking for.

bit of a drag..

Originally I was stoked, both by Saavedra and another fantasy Evans; I still listen to the Obsidian Trilogy. Sadly, this new adventure took waaaayyy too long to get started, and the main character just didn't pull me in like Arlian did. It is a decent listen, but the confrontations and character development were definitely a miss.
