Publisher's Summary

....embedded in the trunk of the scion of the godtree, it contains the essence of the maddest of the Ten Who Were Taken...The Dominator.
Defeated by the Lady and cast from this world, all that was left of him was a foul trace of lingering evil. But the graveyard that was once the Barrowland contains more secrets than dead. All who would possess the power of the Dominator are drawn to the spike. A foolhardy band of thieves is the first to reach it, and a rapacious and malign spirit is unleashed on an unwary world. The forces gather, sides are drawn, and mortal men can only die as the Dark Lords battle for domination.

Very Enjoyable

I just downloaded all the Glen Cook novels and am loving them. I'm a huge George RR Martin fan so I like the grittier side of fantasy. Jonathan Davis does a awesome job reading this one, even though Marc V., who read the first three was good, I just like Davis better, wish he read them all (especially the Rachel Butera fiasco).

Pointless and Terrible

Any additional comments?

This book negates everyone we learned about Raven in the first 5 books, making all of that meaningless and a waste f time. Raven goes from being one of the world's biggest bad asses to getting his ass kicked by a nobody child molester. Did. I mention one of the main character is a child molester who gets to one happily ever after, presumably continuing to molest children for the rest of his days?

The characters are mostly deplorable. The story reduces Raven to a worthless mundane before doing "blank" to him. Also, the narrator is pretty terrible. I doubt I'll read the rest of the series because this book was so terrible.
