Publisher's Summary

A father. A mentor. A leader. Still, a soldier.

Tyrus expected his world to change once the Geneshan War ended. He expected it to change more once he finally reunited with his family.

He did not foresee that the biggest upheaval to his world would be caused by Turine sorcerers tampering with an ancient Geneshan artifact in the capital city of Hol.

The land stands devastated and covered in a haze. Sorcerers are unable to use their power. The king and capital are likely destroyed. Raiders seek to profit in a world without law.

Tyrus decides that he must get his loved ones to the safety of the Southern Kingdoms if they are to have any chance of surviving. The quick flight he plans turns into a labored journey when local townsfolk join his party. Expecting only new dangers now before him, Tyrus fails to anticipate old ones haunting his steps.

Spectacular writing and narration.

I am very confused that I had not come across this author nor that his books had not shown up in my recommended lists. Frankly this is some of the best fantasy I have come across in my time with audible and I have hundreds and hundreds of books in my library.

First some people have an issue with Steven Brand as a narrator. He is dispassionate and can be accused of being deadpan. I have the opposite view and was really disappointed when he was removed as the narrator from the second Anthony Ryan series. I believe Steven Brand like Steven Pacey improves books.His no nonsense approach with great accents and character differentiation is marvellous. I actually found this series by looking at books narrated by Steven Brand.

The books fit nicely into the new Grimdark genre. Some real tear jerker moments and plenty of bad characters and strong decisions by the protagonist.

Magic is a light touch and not a main feature of the books which I prefer, similar I suppose in a way to Joe Abercrombie though Joe injects a lot of humour into his books which is absent here.

I normally like longer books for the perceived value for money but I am buying all of these without hesitation and getting through one a day. In most books I find certain elements that I do not like and have to get past. This series is one of few in which I would change nothing.

Not finished the series yet but at the moment I am putting Joshua P Simon in my top 5 authors.Sterling work and addictive as anything.

Hope fades

I had great hope for this series but I felt disappointed. Nothing much happens in book 2 I felt it drag. I thought Tyrus would form an army and save his country and kill those who wronged his family but no.
