Publisher's Summary

Xend’rik. The dark continent. A land of once-proud empires that now lie in ruin. A land shrouded in mystery where monsters and dark powers stalk the jungles, where only the bravest and most foolhardy will venture.
Now a band of war-weary soldiers must brave the depths of Xen’drik in search of an artifact that is the last hope to save one of their own.

Better than the previous one, still a bit flawed

What did you love best about The Shattered Land?

The inventive about the fantasy world and the alien landscapes and situations.

What did you like best about this story?

It finally ditched the badly written mystery tropes from the previous book for better written ones.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

It's still as stilted as the previous one, but at least each voice is recognisable even without the speaker being called in the script.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

As i listen to stuff while driving (and i do a lot of driving) i would not be able to listen to the whole book. Yes i'm still one of those people that like better to actually read a book when available.

Any additional comments?

Far better than the previous one in this series and with interesting situations and characters, it has two main flaws:
1) characters whining that they do not want mystery. Yes, that's a thing readers probably said of the previous book. No. It should not come out of the mouths of the actual characters in the story every five minutes.
2) The plot twist at the end. It really, really, REALLY sucks. It's the kind of plot twist pulled out of thin air that does not work on multiple read-th- ... uhm ... listen-through searching for clues.

Combat heavy fantasy

A bit repetitive at times. Protagonists are always ready to fight but succumb to capture when convenient. Story is interesting and will bring me back for the third installment.
