Publisher's Summary

Life's a Bish....
Only the Darkslayer's death will do!
After tasting defeat at the hands of the mythic Darkslayer, the underling Lords Catten and Verbard are determined to once and for all eliminate this thorn in their side. But they'll have to wait their turn....
After a brutal trip through the Outlands, the brash warrior Venir – a.k.a. the Darkslayer - returns to the City of Bone. He quickly has his hands full looking out for his young friends Lefty and Georgio, while also trying to score some easy coin with his old ally Melegal the thief. Along the way, Venir faces threats from the Royal Houses of Bone, man-urchins, shadow sentries, and two dark figures that he'd left for dead once before.
Finally, though, Venir leaves Bone behind, only to run into Jarla, Queen of the Brigands - an old flame who wants him dead. And soon after that, the real horror begins, as Catten and Verbard emerge and unleash their worst in the hopes of finally killing the Darkslayer.
The mighty Venir soon finds himself in a fight that might just be more than even the Darkslayer can handle.

He-Man + Son of Zorn + Conan = The Darkslayer

What made the experience of listening to The Darkslayer, Book 2: Blades in the Night the most enjoyable?

I've previously read the book. So bringing it to life through my car speakers or my soundbar just made it that much more special.

What other book might you compare The Darkslayer, Book 2: Blades in the Night to and why?

If you mixed in a bit of He-Man, Conan and a dash of Son of Zorn = Darkslayer

What about Lee Alan’s performance did you like?

He's narration is on point...the only issue I had was the voices used for some of the characters. Yet that might be do to me reading the book and therefore already had my own opinion of how each character should sound like.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Negative...I wanted to extend this as long as possible.

Darkslayer, the Epic Adventure

This book is Mr. Halloran's second book in the Dark Slayer series, and if you are anything like me, you will be very anxious about the arrival of his next audiobook in this series.

This series is a little different from Halloran's other books, being that it is clear that this book is his passion when he writes. The other books are all good, but this one he excels at. It is clear that he has a lot of fun writing the Dark Slayer books.

This book is a little darker than his other work, and I would definitely advise it to a little bit of an older audience, though young adults should be fine.

The narrator still is a little grating, but he does grow on you!
