Publisher's Summary

Four decades after the Oblivion Crisis, Tamriel is threatened anew by an ancient and all-consuming evil. It is Umbriel, a floating city that casts a terrifying shadow-for wherever it falls, people die and rise again. And it is in Umbriel's shadow that a great adventure begins and a group of unlikely heroes meet. A legendary prince with a secret. A spy on the trail of a vast conspiracy. A mage obsessed with his desire for revenge. And Annaïg, a young girl in whose hands the fate of Tamriel may rest.

A good read for Elder Scrolls and ESO Fans

Would you try another book from Greg Keyes and/or Michael Page?

Yes


Would you be willing to try another book from Greg Keyes? Why or why not?

Yes, its was a good story.


Which character – as performed by Michael Page – was your favorite?

Hmmmm, not sure but I would say in general he did a good job. Took a little getting used to since I hadn't hear him before but as usual once you get used to him, he sounds fine.


Could you see The Infernal City being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not really, it would probably be cheesy.


Any additional comments?

This book felt rushed. The story changed very fast at times. I think if the author was given the time, it could have been really good. Or thats my guess. Otherwise they are just bad at transitions? So it is stuck at just good or decent.

It was not what I expected. I expected a generic story with elder scrolls lore. The story was actually fairly unique for a fantasy book. It almost sort of reminded me of gregor the overlander at times. So i liked it for being fairly original.

I am playing skyrim for the second time and can't wait for elder scrolls online game so I decided to listen to the books. I do plan to listen to the next book.

If you like elder scrolls stuff, this is a good read. If not, its an ok read.

Umbriel is coming

I can tell you as one who has played the Elder Scrolls games regularly, this book left my Tamrielic palate satisfied. It was great to hear references to Oblivion, Skyrim, Argonians, Dark Elfs, Imperials, Kajit, etc etc.

We become farmilar with the main character Annaïg who gets stuck on Umbriel to work in the kitchens. Other plots take shape in accordance to the appearance of a flying city on a straight path of death and destruction towards the Imperial City. The story leaves us wanting more and thankfully, Keyes graces us with a sequel.
