Publisher's Summary

Compelling whispers. A stirring rebellion. Unrelenting assassins. Conspiracies abound.

Two queens.

One rules by fear, her citizens laboring to fund the lavish lifestyle of the wizard class. The other believes in justice and compassion, earning her the love of her subjects...and the enmity of her wizard peers.

Both will die.

In one wizardom, a secret rebellion brews. A hero to the people rises, fueled by a mysterious sorcerer's blood magic. But at what cost?

Conspiracies and assassins lurk in every shadow, threatening the throne of another nation. The scheming wizard behind it will stop at nothing to claim the crown. Yet, even he is a pawn.

What force is behind it all? What is their endgame?

Listen to God King Rising and discover for yourself.

From Jeffrey L. Kohanek, author of the best-selling Fate of Wizardoms saga, comes a new series in the same world, again narrated by the ultra-talented Travis Baldree.

Purchase God King Rising and embark on an adventure rife with intrigue, schemes, and stunning revelations.

A well-written story from a very good author

Wizardoms: God-King Rising (Fall of Wizardoms Book 1), my twelfth read from author Jeffrey L. Kohanek. Well-written with intricately developed characters you can invest heavily in and the storyline with its intricate twists & surprises as the tension & suspense ratchets up throughout the book’s length. 10 hrs and 25 mins/422 pages but reads even longer with the attention to detail written into the story. Kohanek’s fantasy worlds have become one of my favorite reads. Now I just need to determine the proper reading order for his multiple Issalia books so I can get caught up. “I received a free Audible copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review." Travis Baldree's narration adds to the enjoyment of this book. The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it. I look forward to the next book in this series. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Excellent Epic Fantasy

This was my first experience with Jeffrey L Kohanek's work and it was exceptional. I am going to seek out the next book in the series as I am interested in finding out what happens next. Although one can read this book without having read any of the others, there are times that this book mentions things that happened before that made me wish that I had read the other series that spawned this one. Having stated that, one can still enjoy this story as it is complete in itself. Travis Baldree's narration is exemplary adding a layer of entertainment to the tale. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Fall of Wizardoms:God King Rising

Jeffrey Kohanek does not disappoint in this continuation of the Wizardoms series. New characters and new challenges continue to confront Jace and Nareen. How they confront them and move forward makes for a great adventure.

The picture he paints of the disdain of the Wizard Class for regular people is starkly presented in Lange’s final arena fight. I cannot say more about that without giving too much away.

This book was a great read and sets the stage for much more to come. Travis Baldree continues his great narration.

Heroes and villains abound. I can’t wait for the next book.

spinoff/continuation

this one is about a little over a year after the events of the previous series. Narine is queen (but for how long) as power plays and conspiracies are a huge factor. So worth reading and/or listening to.

Adventure Fantasy Assassins for +17 Readers

*** Parents: Due to content level this series would probably be in the R range for movies. While the bad language was mild, there was pretty disruptive gore in the action scenes, lots of sexualized scenes and content throughout- naked bodies, descriptions of breasts, "flags raising" and being grabbed, groping, attempted rape, mentions of whoring, and being used for pleasure.

Warnings aside this was an action packed and fun adventure that deals with magicians, elves, drow, pirates and assassins. There's intrigue with twists and turns that keep you highly engaged in the story. Those that like epic fantasy, like a mix of The Lord of the Rings and the tv show Reign. It's definitely geared towards a more adult crowd and lots of fun.

The narrator did a great job with all the voice differentiation and acting, although I did have to speed it up to 1.3 x speed because it just felt a little slow.

Thrilling start to a fantastic new series!

Hats off!! Because, people - Kohanek does it again!

Following the events of Fate of Wizardoms, God King Rising takes off running, grabs you by the throat, and hauls you through battles, intrigue, magic and more, without ever letting go! Trust me when I say, you are in for a daring ride, full of action, twists and turns, whether you like it or not!

The descriptions are just right, vivid without being distracting, the prose is on point, and the world-building is fabulous. The characters are relatable, distinctly different from each other, and already established ones (from Fate of Wizardoms) team up with new participants on what looks to become another quest to save the world!

With its perfect mix of humour, romance, action, and magic, Fall of Wizardoms has something for everyone. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Note 1: Although Fall of Wizardoms works as a new entry point into this world by Kohanek, I believe one gets the best experience by first reading Fate of Wizardoms.

Note 2: As this was an audiobook, I will also point out that the narrator Travis Baldree does an absolutely stunning job. My mind was readily blown listening to this volume!
