Publisher's Summary

It is a fool's errand, and Tallos knows it, but against his own better judgment and the pleading of his wife, Tallos has committed himself to a voyage north. His lifelong friend's eldest sons are said to have been taken by Northmen, a raiding people ill-reputed for their savagery. The boys are already dead, Tallos knows, and in that dark place of grim reasoning he wishes only to find their corpses quickly so he can fulfill his promise and return to his wife. Instead, he finds something far worse.

Better than expected; awaiting book 2

Sometimes you take a risk with an unknown author who has an unknown book based on their reviews on Amazon and Audible. I did so here and felt richly rewarded. Some criticize the many POV chapters and multiple characters. I would suggest being patient allowing the story to develop. This story has many plot twists and great action. The characters are well developed and draw you in to a complex story. The narration by Matt Cowlrick was excellent. Highly recommended were fans of George RR Martin.

Excellent

Some have said in their reviews that this story hops around a bit and it made it a little difficult to follow. I must disagree on the final point. It does pop around chronically, but that does NOT deter from the over arching story.
It has a touch of GOT in that there a several leading characters all following their own paths that will undoubtedly intertwine.
Well Written, Well Narrated thoroughly enjoyable

Not like it

This is the first fantasy novel that I really didn't like or grab me in anyway, the voice actor had a lovely deep voice but no infelction or emotion

Good story, poor narration.

The story, though it takes a long time to become interesting, is fairly good. The characters are intricate and some are quite unique, and the writer is talented.
The narration is another story. Bland and emotionless for the most part, there is no real effort put into telling the story. The same tone was used whether a character was yelling or talking quietly and this caused me to almost stop listening, however the story was good enough that i could look past it after a time, despite it still frustrating me time and again.
