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).

Narrated by Matthew Mcconaughey, as Batman...

Would you try another book from Glen Cook and/or Jonathan Davis?

If you've ever wondered what Mcconaughey doing an impression of the Dark Knight sounds like this is the book for you. The narrator does get easier to tolerate as the book goes on, but he is constantly prone awkward pauses in the middle of sentences. It's like he's reading commas in places that shouldn't have them.

That being said, the book is good enough to suffer the narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator could have dropped the cheesy southern accent.
