A sequel series done right, there is an emphasis on new characters and some references to old characters. This series sets up the plot for the interaction with Earth, and looking at why the Great Guilds formed in the first place. From a character point of view its about living under someones shadow and being constantly compared to someone. In the end this story is about making your own path. The book is self-contained there is no real cliff-hangers,
MacLeod Andrews performance is excellent. Characters have distinctive voices (i.e differentiable), the pacing and speed of the story was well done. Production was excellent I did not notice any audio anomalies while listening.
Overall Jack Campbell has done an excellent job of starting the sequel series to Pillars of Reality with a great balance between old and new characters. Characters felt realistic in the decisions they made (even if they might not be the best). It also gives an interesting perspective on a possible future society from Earth. The story has a lot of action including jumping off of trains, sailing the high seas, encounters in alleys, lots of running away. Also, there is an awesome underdog scene in which I pumped my fist in the air with some great justice.

Enjoyed the story. Found constant reference to trite teenage growing issues as perceived by an aging author distracting to the extreme

I loved all the pillars of reality books and this book is no different, it's well written and action packed and the main characters are the daughter of the daughter, (a brilliant mix of her parents) finding herself and her hidden inner abilities ,and a teenage urth boy ,who finds himself with the aid of a worthy quest to save billions of lives and the adventure of his life with the most amazing girl he has ever met .
I'm not going to give any of the plot away, I will simply say, yes it must be read or listened to, loose yourself in the world of Demater, you won't regret it ......enjoy!
