Well Done!

I just finished listening to this book today. For the past month or so I have been listening to the series and, as usual, was disappointed to reach the end. The characters are easy to like or hate. There is plenty of action in all the books and this is no exception. I recommend that you not read the books out of sequence.
I don't want to write more because I might give hints about the plot and how it develops. So I will end by saying If you enjoy RR Martin's and Robert Jordan's books you cannot go wrong with this series.

A superb story by a superb author

I read the Island in the Sea of Time trilogy and loved it. I was delighted when my son found Dies the Fire (first in this series) and gave it to me as a surprise birthday present. If anything the Dies the Fire series is even better than the Island series. Both have superbly developed characters, strong story lines, and are very captivating. Each year since the first I've devoured each new book in the series in a day or three, and then wait impatiently for the next one to come along.

The Audible treatment is, IMHO, also superb. I found the narrator to be better than most others on most audio books, and he does a very good job with voice changes, inflection, and accents - even doing a creditable job for the women.

I would highly recommend the series - both hard copy and Audible version to anyone who has imagination, enjoys strong characters, the struggle between good and evil (there are a few VERY evil ones in here!), and an epic adventure that stands with the very best in modern storytelling.

Outstanding!!
