All in all I just didn't like The Red Queen nearly as much as The Broken Empire. As the protagonist, Jalen just could not hold a candle to Jorg. Humorous at times, but I mostly wanted to slap him for his spineless whining. Maybe Jorg ruined it for me. His char was so brutal when necessary that to do a 180 with Jalen was a bit much to take in.

While it does wander a bit, "The Wheel of Osheim" is a fairly good conclusion to the series, "The Red Queen's War". Being the third book there is a lot of content from the previous books that a listener must remember for most of it to make any sense, but for those who have been paying attention up until this point this book is worth the time.
Prince Jalan is still incredibly cowardly, whiney, narcissistic, selfish and sarcastic, but an audience will love him for the laughter he brings to the story as the main character. The narrator, Tim Gerard Reynolds, made audio magic with the entire series to this final entry and it is hard to imagine another person doing a better job.
The story starts off with a bang and we find Prince Jalan doing what he does best; running away. But soon he is once again tied to another epic quest that forces him to make a stand and face his fears...despite his best efforts not to. He is a liar and a cheat, but if anyone can save the world through a bizarre combination of blind luck and panic it's Prince Jalan.
This book recommended for people who already read the first two books of "The Red Queen's War" series and the entire series is recommended to fantasy adventure fans who would love to be entertained by humorously hypocritical main characters.
