Publisher's Summary

The Monster of Karth has risen once more. Quin Tern of Azbar has met his fate, and his council has borne the price of crossing Raz i'Syul Arro. Now, as the cruel walls of the city fade into the winter storms at his back, Raz rides north, seeking to take the High Priest Talo Brahnt up on an offer he never should have refused. The path Raz has chosen, though, is a bloody one, and before long he and his new companions find themselves pitted against hardships they can neither anticipate nor ignore. As man and snow and beast alike rise up to block their path, it seems almost as though the North itself has woken to wage war against the Monster.

And yet, Raz's greatest challenge still looms ahead. Far to the north, like a plague beneath the trees, Gûlraht Baoill, Kayle of the savage mountain tribes, leads his armies further east with each passing day. He has set his hungry gaze upon the reaches of Cyurgi' Di, the High Citadel, and desires nothing more than to see it razed from the face of the world, offering it and its blasphemous "false-prophets" up as sacrifice to his Stone Gods. Syrah Brahnt, the High Priest's adopted daughter and protégé, has found him out, discovering his plan to lay siege to her home, cutting her and the rest of the Laorin off from the world. As it is, though, there is little and less that she can do, and when the first of the Kayle's generals reaches the base of the mountain pass, Syrah is left with only one option. In the end, she will have to face the wrath of the tribes herself....

Little does she know that the Monster is coming, riding hard to lend her his blades.

Enjoyed every minute

Listening to this book while driving, I found myself taking the long way. Good listen. I even cried a tear at that scene on the island..

Excellent

Love Raz, never thought a creature could have a literary impact as he but it’s true. There is fighting, gruesome details but so much love in the same quantity.

One of my favorite authors!

I waited patiently for like 4 months to get his last book on audible. I love the narrators voice to. An audible credit well worth it!

Raz i’Syul Arro & Syrah Brandh

They keep you racing to “turn the page” while dreading the last book.

I can honestly say I’ve held off reading sections so that I could pay close attention or because it was so intense I didn’t want to “read” it yet.

Just because you know the author can’t kill them off yet, doesn’t mean you aren’t clenching your fists and holding your breath. Lol

Gritty, violent

I waited until I finished the series before writing a review. This was a difficult series for me though Bryce is an accomplished author and Mikael Naramore is an outstanding narrator. The story is extremely violent, certainly not for the squeamish. Definitely not for everyone. The climax is very powerful and well crafted, which frankly made the story. Sub plots dealing with cruelty and prejudice including sexual assault were at times over the top. Not a light hearted fantasy read, to be sure.

A necessary evil

Again BOC doesn't pull his punches, and does a great job of taking typical heroic moments and twisting them dark. Raz, the Monster of Carth and the Layoren act as great foils to one another. The story and setting are vivid and the characters act in believe able ways.


My only criticism is in the Citadel itself, or how the Layoren act within.

The author establishes the rules well, but the sense of them, for the amount of time spent on them, is still very vague.

other than that. Great book!

Tried liking it...

Goodish series. Problem was, the religion that was supposed to be a catalyst for making people be peaceful and nice ended up making people hard and cruel. By halfway through the book, which was all I could stomach, I hoped all the people in the church would just die. Painfully. If you can save someone from getting raped and tortured but only stop because of religion, you fucking deserve to die. Stopping from killing because the person might be redeemed to me is the Pinnacle of stupidity. we make our choices. Trying to sugar-cote the problem with religion means that the "God" is just a cruel bastard who should get ass raped and tortured just to figure out why it is necessary to stop it. Any fucking way possible.

Good but please never again

Spoilers here so don't read if you haven't listened yet.

The book is great, but please please never do that again with a character being raped for so long and teasing it over and over.

I get its a just a book but you need to put in a warning or something and never do it again preferably.

Oh No! More Waiting!!

I really love this series, and was looking forward to getting hold of this, the third instalment. It was every bit as exiting as the first two books, but I was livid when I got to the end, only to find that there will be a fourth book, and I have no idea how long I'm going to have to wait before I can get hold of it, or if it will be recorded as an Audio Book. Audible is after all infamous for releasing only parts of a series (in my opinion) (Martha Wells' "Raksura" series being only one example). Aside from the waiting, I can't think of anything I don't like about this series. I like the characters, I like the setting. I like the narrator, who does a wonderful job of bringing this story to life. In my humble opinion, A Winner!!
