Publisher's Summary

In the latest Shadow Campaigns novel, Django Wexler continues his "epic fantasy of military might and magical conflict" following The Shadow Throne and The Thousand Names, as the realm of Vordan faces imminent threats from without and within.
In the wake of the king's death, war has come to Vordan. The deputies-general have precarious control of the city, but it is led by a zealot who sees traitors in every shadow. Executions have become a grim public spectacle. The new queen, Raesinia Orboan, finds herself nearly powerless as the government tightens its grip and assassins threaten her life. But she did not help free the country from one sort of tyranny to see it fall into another. Placing her trust with steadfast soldier Marcus D'Ivoire, she sets out to turn the tide of history.
As the hidden hand of the Sworn Church brings all the powers of the continent to war against Vordan, the enigmatic and brilliant general Janus bet Vhalnich offers a path to victory. Winter Ihernglass, newly promoted to command a regiment, has reunited with her lover and her friends only to face the prospect of leading them into bloody battle. And the enemy is not just armed with muskets and cannon. Dark priests of an ancient order, wielding forbidden magic, have infiltrated Vordan to stop Janus by whatever means necessary.

Pretty Good

This is much like the 1st and 2nd book, just of course, it's a continuation of the story. The story ended with a few loose ends, unanswered questions, and a few cliff hangers, so I think there must be a 4th book in the pipeline, but I don't know. The only complaint I have is that there wasn't very much back story in the beginning to remindime what happened in the first two books. I had to restart the book 3 times after listening for two, or three hours, just for me to remember the different characters, and get up to speed. As for the narrator, I really like him and he does a great job.

One of the best series I've listened to.

The character development is strong and story line captivating. the reader, Richard Poe makes this easy to listen to and he does a great job with the characters. Never got tired of it for a minute.
