Enthralling battle of minds and might
While I loved Dawn, Ambition hooked me immediately and never let me down. Every action made either ends in success or tragedy, and the amount sheet chaos in the second half of the book was a joy to listen to.
Spoiling as little as possible, the melee combat bit within the fortress corridor made it clear that this book series should see the light of Hollywood!
I think he does a very good job bringing out the cold calculation that is the heart of this book. The few times emotion is brought up are done well enough that I noticed them just by subtle audio cues and shifts in the narrators voice.
No Major Spoilers
The scene in the stadium actually made me pause the book for a few minutes and think about what that meant for the Empire.
Additionally, the assassination attempts were nothing short of awesome. (I hope that does not reflect poorly on my character XD).
Better than the first! More than worth a listen. Time for Endurance!
Probably the dullest moment of the serie.
