Publisher's Summary

Once a fabled Blade of Namara, Aral Kingslayer fought for justice and his goddess alongside his familiar, a living shadow called Triss. Now with their goddess murdered and her temple destroyed, they are among the last of their kind. Surviving on the fringes of society, Aral becomes a drunken, broken, and wanted man, working whatever shadowy deal comes his way. Until a mysterious woman hires him to deliver a secret message - one that can either redeem him or doom him.

We need the rest of this series

This is a great story with excellent narration. It has a great fast pace and you really feel the characters start to come to life, sadly though the rest of this series isn't available yet on audible. But this story does have a good enough ending to listen to as a stand alone book.

Get The Next One Too

I've read this full series (6 books) through twice now, and picked the audiobook up for easy background noise.

My only complaint about the book, is that it barely scrapes the top of the vast world Mr. McCullough has developed, and leaves so many things hinted at, that I always find myself yearning for more. Luckily, Mr. McCullough has written five more books in the series, and none of them disappoint.

I have nothing but praises for Mr. McCullough's engrossing story telling, his great use of the English language, and a vast appreciation of the realms of mythology and history from which he draws inspiration.

Happy reading!
