honestly I love this series but I feel this book is a bit of a let down. Nothing really happens, it's got what is usually second book syndrome but this time in the third. the narration is top notch as always though but I just feel the story is lacking in this one.

Enjoyable but the conflicting relationships between characters is becoming overly complicated. and there are far too many characters that alot haven't been fleshed out. and most characters stay in the personality circle and constantly contradict themselves. the inner conflict in Rezkin felt like some hidden depth to an almost immortal being, but the depth just sort of turns to be regression in the all the developments he made so far. and the odd relationships he has with other characters, especially Frisha, are strained. I personally liked their pairing, and that pairing has become overly complicated and was barely present at all throughout the book. I found myself actually disliking Rezkin towards the end and hope for some sort of renewly of his character and the relationships he has. The ending was surpisingly abrupt and felt entirely uncompleted just as I hoped he'd fix one of the complication i mentioned he fell flat and un-observant of who he was talking to. The story on a whole was excruciatingly dulled compared to the previous books, though the scope is greater. The new setting should have allowed for some much needed character development and growth, instead the development was simply that someone could swing a sword faster. Seriously though the relationship thing with Rezkin and Frisha needs to be sorted out, it's really tedious.
I listen to all three book's put so far and I love how this world is evolving. I can hardly wait for more dark tidings.
While I enjoyed the first half of the book and the introduction of the greater magical side of the series. It starts to derail from the clear focus the first 2 books had. Many characters just dissappear or lose importance without explaination. Motives for the ones that are In focus are weak including Rezkin himself. The supernatural elements of the story are introduced as being unknown but no one questions their existence after they have been introduced. The story creates more questions seeming only as a setup for many sequels which I will undoubtedly still read.
Just finished book three and it is one of those books that make you sit in the car outside the office or house till you finish the next bit. I also am a big fan of Nick Podehl and his reading style. I’m dyslexic and audible is my best friend. Thank you
