Publisher's Summary

Joseph Colsco has survived what many would not have - cast naked on an alien planet amidst humans speaking an unknown language and with a different culture and history. Now, known to the people of Caedellium as Yozef Kolsko, he has risen out of despair to prominence and finds himself a central figure in the culmination of a struggle against an imperialist power bent on subjugation.
The clans of the Island of Caedellium must gird themselves for what is to come. If they can't unite to a degree previously unimaginable, they will fall into the bottomless abyss of lost history. Their strengths are their determination, bravery, potentially new allies, and a single man with a mysterious history. The options are simple: victory, death, enslavement.
Yozef Kolsko may have transformed from who he had been on Earth, but did the trials he has undergone produced a savior some of his adopted people see him as or is he an illusion? The crucible of fate is about to yield a final product, but is the result enough against a formidable enemy?

Excellent story & narration.

Probably the best series I have read/heard. A great story and a great narrator. There are a few unanswered questions but maybe there will be a book 5? I don't want to spoil anything but you'll see. This is one purchase you very likely won't regret. Be sure to purchase the books in order! That being said, if you're reading reviews for this book then you've likely read the first 3 and need no further information! Enjoy!

I'm totally immersed, ready for the next book.

What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator does a great job with voices and accents to help give the characters more depth and personality plus it's very helpful when following the story.

Really enjoyable series

Excellent performance of a really good story. It would be a shame if Olan stops it here, considering how well-crafted his world is and how much time he's spent on building it. I'm not a fan of prolonged series but I make an exception in this case. The only other series of four books I enjoyed as much is the Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons.

Keep them coming to this calibre and I'll keep listening. Thank you Olan.

Excellent read

What a great audio if this was the final book in this series I really enjoyed the audio far better than the ebook. The switching from different characters was annoying when reading the text to me but while listening too the audio I really got into storyline. Thanks Olan.
