Publisher's Summary

Eli Monpress is vain. He's cocky. And he's a thief. But he's a thief who has just seen his bounty topped, and he's not happy about it. The bounty topper, as it turns out, is his best friend, bodyguard, and master swordsman, Josef, who has been keeping secrets from Eli. Apparently he's the only prince of a rather feisty country, and his mother (a formidable queen who is every bit as driven and stubborn as he is) wants him to come home and do his duty, which means throwing over personal ambitions, such as proving he's the greatest swordsman who ever lived.
Family drama aside, Eli and Josef have their hands full. The Spirit Court has been usurped by the Council of Thrones, and someone calling herself the Immortal Empress is staging a massive invasion. But it's not just politics--the Immortal Empress has a specific target in mind: Eli Monpress, the greatest thief in the world.

What happened to narrator?

What disappointed you about The Spirit War?

This is the 4th book of a good series, I have enjoyed listening to Luke Daniels...The info states narrated by Luke Daniels, however, either it is a misprint or he has had a voice change. Disappointing

why, Luke?

Best book of the series yet, marred only by a baffling choice of the narrator to suddenly use a different reading voice for the primary narration (much deeper, ponderously slow, and slightly twangy), and different voices for some of the main characters. Got used to it after a few hours, and after increasing the playback speed to 1.20x. Like once of the other reviewers, I at first thought a completely different person was reading, and found the new voice really unpleasant and hard to listen to. Later on in the book, Luke starts to sound more like his old self from Books 1-3, and I was able to decrease the playback speed to 1.10x.
