Publisher's Summary

He had known this day would come. No man could escape the entire might of the Sovran forever. He just found it humorous that it was an enemy of the Sovran that had caught him instead. Bound, kneeling before a queen whom he had hounded for a straight year, he should have been anxious. Or at least a little worried. Instead, a strange sense of relief filled him. It was over. His mad escape from Brindisi's justice was over. "That is a very calm expression on your face, General Darius Bresalier," she observed. Her tone was idle, but her eyes were as sharp as a hawk's. "Are you not worried?" "I knew what the punishment would be, Your Most High Majesty," he answered respectfully. "I have had a year to resign myself to my fate. I cannot complain." She gave a low, musical hum of approval. "Well said. I have heard many reports on what you did but never once did I believe I could have the full tale." She leaned forward, causing the silk pillows behind her to slide in every direction. "Kingslayer, tell me. Why did you kill your king?"

Argh!!!

What about Mark McClain Wilson’s performance did you like?

It was nice to listen to a narrator who had an American accent. I do enjoy the English narration also... it was just a nice change-up


Any additional comments?

All the reviews I had read had stated how wonderful the book was. I just couldn't make it through this book. It was all so simple. I think my displeasure has more to do with my taste than the author's writing. If you like a book that is very straight forward and not too deep this would be an enjoyable listen. For those who want more depth then it may be as frustrating for you as for me. I found myself becoming annoyed and finally having to turn it off. :(

Turned this book off with 2 hours to go.

What disappointed you about Kingslayer?

World Building was almost nil. Its not really a Fantasy at all. Nothing FANTASTICAL happens or is shown in the book. Basically, there was nothing cool about this book. Him getting the horse was my favorite part.


If you’ve listened to books by Honor Raconteur before, how does this one compare?

No I have not. I probably wont again.


Have you listened to any of Mark McClain Wilson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. He does a good job however. The Narration is not the issue.


What character would you cut from Kingslayer?

I would take out all the romantic encounters. So Darius love interest and later his wife.


Any additional comments?

On a positive note. Character development is done very well in this book. But not enough to support the book as a whole. The plot was basically a oath, a couple battles and a marriage. And the world building is pretty much nil. I hate to give bad reviews but, I bought this book due to its positive ones. I don't understand why people have given this book great reviews. Unless they are just used to boring or audible rookies.
