Publisher's Summary

The good part about being immortal is that you cannot die. That is also the bad part.
Brash, young, and markedly sociopathic, Cyan has the makings of a full army commander if he lives long enough to be promoted. But when a close brush with death breaks his resolve, he is rendered unable to lead his men, let alone leave his tent, for weeks.
The tide starts to turn when his superiors send him a magical artifact that ensures he will not die on the battlefield. Unfortunately for Cyan, he soon learns that not dying can be worse than not living - a side effect of the artifact's magic turns more of his body to lifeless iron with each passing day. Knowing time is short before he becomes just another statue in a town square, he sets off on a quest to rid himself of his cursed immortality.

The jerk we love to hate, and one we hate to love

If you could sum up The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate in three words, what would they be?

Blood, guts, & dark humor


Who was your favorite character and why?

Cyan Wraithwate. He's the jerk we love to hate, and one we hate to love. He's got a big axe, poor impulse control, and a twisted penchant for manipulating people. He's fun to watch in action.


What about Matt Weight’s performance did you like?

Matt Weight is a natural storyteller. His uniquely snarky delivery gives the book the feel of a Quentin Tarantino film. When the blood flies and the tension's high, he drills down every gritty detail. And his sarcastic deadpan has to be heard to be believed. Any way you slice it, Mr. Weight's performance will delight, amuse, and amaze.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The action sequences were flashy and intense, and perfectly narrated. The author's dark sense of humor will make you chuckle and cringe at the same time.


Any additional comments?

"The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate" is an exceptional dark fantasy.

Edgy dark fantasy with a twist!

What made the experience of listening to The Many Deaths of Cyan Wraithwate the most enjoyable?

I loved the action sequences, and there were many of them! And also the ways in which the protagonist dies, and comes right back. All the action aside, the story is very good too. Mr. Weight, the narrator, did a fantastic job throughout.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Cyan, the main character. He's a jerk and he's hard to like as a person, but he's fun to watch in action.


What does Matt Weight bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Weight's voice acting was fantastic. I love the way he voices the main character, Cyan. He makes him sound like a mercenary jerk, which Cyan is.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The final twist at the end.


Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book and the voice acting.
