Publisher's Summary

The third book in the new epic fantasy series fans are comparing to David Gemmell and Raymond E. Feist. Lady Iskra and her followers have survived the onslaught of demons, forged powerful alliances, and are finally ready to wreck righteous vengeance on the Ascendant Empire. Yet even as they begin their endgame, a new danger arises that threatens to annihilate everything in its path, heretic or no: Tharok, the greatest peril to humanity since Ogri the Destroyer. The Siege of Abythos continues the action-packed new epic fantasy series that began with The Path of Flames - an adrenaline-fueled debut of sin casting mages, heresy, and cold-blooded betrayal in a land where the deepest buried secrets are finally resurfacing to destroy the world.

Great book!! Awful narration.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have read the books in this series and was very excited to see they finally had come out with the audio version. However, I had to turn the series off as the narration was just plain bad. The narrator remained monotone the whole time and seemed to be hating life while reading. He was making me dislike a series I have very much enjoyed reading. I highly recommend the series but skip the narrated version and just read the books.

Disconnected.

Good narration, but the story is broken up between different point of views, multiple first person narration, which is good but they are all in the same location, or experiencing the same thing. But they have next to zero interaction, zero reaction about what happens to each other, which either means the author sucks or the characters are all selfish asses. And the morality of the story was insuferable. The characters either on par with Jesus or heartless bastards. And the characters that were supposedly the reader is, I guess, supposed to connect to are either pansy's that have no spine. Asho is the biggest ass kissing pansy that can't stand up for himself, who tries to be a hero but instead always manages to mess up. He's weak, morally and in how he interacts with the world. Sacrifices everything, his people, hell he could have stood with them and ended their suffering but instead betrays them, ends all hope that they could be put in a better position, why? For an empire that oppresses them, murdered his father, betrays a friend, and he does it so heartlessly that damn... he's just a weak man. Has no backbone. But the author tries to make him out as the good guy. Just sad I spent money on this series. And the sadistic way he forces the characters to turn into honorable people, which is disgusting, literally everybody is practically sacrificed on a cross, which turns into a dramatized mess. Sadistic without meaning. Did not appreciate it. So not a book for me.
