This was really quite a good story! I liked the main characters and their foes. The story was well written and had a great pace through the scenes between the conflicts as well as the conflicts themselves. Overall, this was a very satisfying and well written story.
Based on what other reviewers are saying I guess I might be in the minority here, but I found the narrator distracting. It seems like he would run out of breath toward the end of a sentence and had to really force the words without a sufficient amount of air to get it done. I kept wondering if he was just not taking a breath between sentences or if he was trying too hard to project a deep radio announcers voice and just couldn't maintain it at times.

5th book in a series. I was able to pick it up with ease and enjoy it. Ima sure had I read the rest I would have enjoyed some of the characters more than I did. Well written and well. Arrayed. I highly recommend and will be seeking out the previous installments. Enjoy! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

This is, apparently, a fifth book in a series. It stood on it's own quite well, though. There were a few references to previous books, but it wasn't a terrible distraction. The narrator was great, and helped keep things moving. The battle scenes were very well written and suspenseful. All in all, I really enjoyed this book.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Since this book is being marketed as a standalone book too and yet has several references to previous books in the series, I think a little more of a recap would've benefited the listeners. If I knew in more details about what the characters have suffered so far, I would've bonded more closely with them.
Would you be willing to try another book from Nick S. Thomas? Why or why not?
Sure. The writing was good in this book and characters were believable and relatable. The battle sequences were the strong point. So, I would definitely try out his other books.
Any additional comments?
