A very good and surprising first novel
I have always been a huge fan of grimdark fantasy novels and I had heard Luke Scull's debut was an excellent new entry into the genre. For the first three quarters of the novel I was mildly disappointed because the novel seemed very generic to me. There was a band of heroes trying to overthrow an all powerful mage, and I know we have all heard this story before. However, the final quarter of this novel changed my opinion completely and made the whole wait worth it. SCull took all of the usual fantasy hero tropes and flipped them upside down and tore them apart. I met shock after shock in the last few hours of this book, and I couldn't have been happier. Another note about this novel is Scull writes very well detailed fight scenes with plenty of gore, whitch is very typical of a grimdark novel. There is a fair amount of bad language, but not too much, and little to no sex. The one serious downside to this listening experience is the fact that the narrator is very average and does not do a very good job differentiating characters. Overall, this was a very good debut by a talented author and I look forward to the next book.

Great Except For One Thing
Overall, this was a great book and a great performance. My only issue was the the narrator kept switching the name of a magical weapon! Half the time it would be correct and the other half incorrect. It took my half the book to figure out what the correct name was. However, that's my only complaint!
