Publisher's Summary

After years of struggle and sacrifice, Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead king's dream: Aline, the king's daughter, is about to take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all.

But for the Greatcoats, nothing is ever that simple. In the neighboring country of Avares, an enigmatic new warlord is uniting the barbarian armies that have long plagued Tristia's borders - and even worse, he is rumored to have a new ally: Trin, who's twice tried to kill Aline to claim the throne of Tristia for herself. With the armies of Avares at her back, led by a bloodthirsty warrior, she'll be unstoppable.

Falcio, Kest, and Brasti race north to stop her, but in those cold and treacherous climes, they discover something altogether different, and far more dangerous: A new player is planning to take the throne of Tristia, and with a sense of dread the three friends realize that the Greatcoats, for all their skill, may not be able to stop him.

A beautiful conclusion to the story

I really enjoyed the entire series. The characters were fantastic. Even the "bad" ones were typically bad from a point of view and often lead to some confliction. I highly recommend this series.

Fantastic ending for a fantastic quartet

The Greatcoats Quartet is now up among my favorite series of all time. These books are so full of life that I feel as if I have known the characters for the entirety of mine. I will miss the first time that I heard tell of their adventurous heroics, but take solace in the fact that I may visit them in the future.

Heart wrenching, swashbuckling, funny adventure

I’ve listened to this series twice and have found more to love each time. It’s an adventure with imperfect heroes (sorry Brasti), good friends who are pressed to their ragged edges and new enigmatic enemies.
Sebastien de Castell has created a compelling world, characters whose lives I’m completely invested in and problems that need clever committed heroes. Also- you may need some Kleenex for this one.
Joe Jameson brings the characters to life - it’s magic and keeps me coming back.

This series.. amazed me.

A series that went from hating to loving from one chapter to the next. I was skeptical from the start.

I wept and then chuckled.. and soon after could’ve thrown my headphones (which was weird, this was the first “new to me” series I’ve listened to on audible). I loved it and Joe Jameson in my mind was amazing at narrating Castell’s work so much so that I’ll probably seek out more of his narrated work.

I’ll also likely listen to anything about this world Castell has created. I’ve read on and off for years, usually sci-fi, and I picked up audible on a whim.. and immediately dove into books I’d likely never buy a copy of only to be ashamed that I’d ignored a genre of fantasy for so long.

It was a Journey that I’ll never forget and will likely have to listen to again.

Beautiful and fitting end

Tyrant’s Throne was everything I hoped it would be for the last book of the Greatcoat series. Heartfelt, funny with clever plot and beautiful writing.

Joe James did remarkable job as narrator. I read first three books but after his performance I wish I listened to them as well.

Highly recommend.

An almost PERFECT Hero Cycle Fantasy Adventure!

The all too predictable culminating battle mars an otherwise fabulous finale’ to this wonderful series !

The end I wanted

I listen to many books in this genre and I must admit I really loved this one for the unique aspects of it. Without going into much spoiler detail the aspect of learning things via song really stood out to me as something I never really think about in my every day but tend to use. The characters are likable and some big emotions between them. I recommend this as well as the rest of the story as this review is for the over all series not just this book.

Heartbreaking and funny.

One of the better endings to a fantasy series. Lots of heroism but sans cliches. Some achingly beautiful recognitions at the end. I couldn't help but be moved by these wise cracking smart added magistrates. Whoever thought a fantasy series about judges would be so deep? Imagine if the Starks were lawyers instead of grim warriors in the frozen north. The characterizations were deeply individualized and poignant and the chemistry between the main characters feels genuine and not forced.
