Publisher's Summary

Some laws you break. Some break you. And then there's Caine's Law.
From the moment Caine first appeared in the pages of Heroes Die, two things were clear. First, that Matthew Stover was one of the most gifted fantasy writers of his generation. And second, that Caine was a hero whose peers go by such names as Conan and Elric. Like them, Caine was something new: a civilized man who embraced savagery, an actor whose life was a lie, a force of destruction so potent that even gods thought twice about crossing him. Now Stover brings back his greatest creation for his most stunning performance yet.
Caine is washed up and hung out to dry, a crippled husk kept isolated and restrained by the studio that exploited him. Now they have dragged him back for one last deal. But Caine has other plans. Those plans take him back to Overworld, the alternate reality where gods are real and magic is the ultimate weapon. There, in a violent odyssey through time and space, Caine will face the demons of his past, find true love, and just possibly destroy the universe. Hey, it’s a crappy job, but somebody’s got to do it.

The pinnacle of Caine

Would you consider the audio edition of Caine’s Law to be better than the print version?

Not really, but Rudniki does phenomenal


What other book might you compare Caine’s Law to and why?

Caine's Law is so much unlike anything I've ever read, even Stover's other stuff.


Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. He delivers stellar voice acting consistently


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh yes. There wasn't many pages where I didn't go "HOLY COW!" but Caine's speech to the BOG is really good. Also, the Mockingbird question.

intense, harsh and reality bender

Did you listen to Hero's Die? Blade of Tyshaelle? Perhaps Caine Black Knife? Well you better do that before listening to this one. Caine is back and he is crafting a new future by rewriting the past, his past and the past of the universe... both of them. Harsh, gritty, profound and violent. Fans of Stover will not be disappointed.
