Adventuring is a costly affair, and while the tolls are often paid in blood, gold can drain away just as quickly. The party's trek out of Solium and across the lands of Alcatham has left them with only a handful of gold between them. Fortunately, they have drawn near Camnarael, Alcatham's capital, where all manner of quests - and rewards - await. But all is not as expected in the capital. Unusual occurrences have been happening throughout Camnarael: figures in the shadows making unsavory bargains, attackers harassing innocent parishioners, and adventurers from all over the land gathering to partake in a Grand Quest offered by the royal family. Most curious of all are the rumors that speak of a strange artifact serving as the reward for this rare and legendary quest...an artifact that sounds just a bit too familiar to the former NPCs.

3rd book in my favorite guilty pleasure series.
Great continuation of the series
Yes, but only if they listened to the 1st two.
none really. This is the continuation of a great series and it feels like it could be ongoing thing, which is great because there's so many aspects they could explore or pathways they could go down.
I don't really listen to fantasy books, but Drew Hayes is such a great author which is why i gave this series a try. Was glad i did, however it means i haven't really got much to compare it too.
No particular scene, just the overall plot construction. For example why does the mage selling stuff along the way purposefully give Gabrielle the axe that takes blood and life?, the girl that sells Russell & his sister the latest module of the Spells Swords & Stealth game, and the company behind it all. It all sounds really intriguing and i will look forward to the next instalment.
No extreme reaction. In fact at the start i was reluctant to listen to it because the genre of this book is more pure fantasy. Whereas the last few books i listened to were Sci-fi fantasy, and i wasn't quite ready for the change. But once i got back in it was great. There's little explaining of what happened in previous books, each character has well developed back stories that so far we have just heard the tip of the iceburg... and it's just overall a great story.
Drew Hayes is now my favourite author. I would highly recommend anything by this author, including even listening to him in podcasts and interviews talking about how he writes or constructs all the different books he's writing.
Every single book i've listened to of his is fantastic. I normally don't like fantasy books, but this one is intriguing and even exciting. The twists and this latest plot directions.. even though you could see coming was great!
