Publisher's Summary

Fans of RA Salvatore's Drizzt Do' Urden, Frizt Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, David Gemmell's Druss the Legend, Raymond E. Feist's Pug the Wizard, and Robert E. Howard's Conan, like The Darkslayer series. Perhaps you will as well.
Welcome to the unwelcome world of Bish.
Bish is the land of constant strife and turmoil. The rise and fall of the blazing suns make the days long and the people disagreeable. Its barren Outlands are as comforting as a bed of thorns as there is little sanctuary to be found in the sweltering forests or the dank caves below the ground. Its caviling cities are overrun with death, greed, and corruption, but few complain. It is a place where tempers flare and alliances last as long as a tankard of ale. It is a place where the women are as beautiful as they are scarred and deranged. A place where good doesn't thrive, it endures. It is the land of fight or die.
Enter Venir the incorrigible, a fierce warrior, who has been secretly keeping the underling forces at bay for years. He is the Darkslayer, a man possessed by a mantle of power he cannot let go.
Enter Melegal the resilient, a crafty rogue, and Venir's reluctant shadow.
Enter the underlings, a purely evil race of sadistic killers bent on the destruction of mankind.
Enter the humans, a greedy, self-absorbed race of shameless survivors.
Enter the orcs, halflings, dwarves, ogres, and other races, some good, some bad, all caught in the maelstrom of treachery and seduction.
How will they survive to fight and skim another day? Only Bish knows.

Good Endures Says it all

This book is filled with all manner of plot twists that twist you up then unwinds you. In the description, it tells us that good endures and there is a lot of enduring. I am reminded of the Clint Eastwood movie where the Native American says, "Endeavor to endure." Good continues in spite of evil trying to prevail. This was a dark story but not oo dark. The narrator was good and enhanced the story. I got this book via audiobook boom.

Loved it

Any additional comments?

I was very excited that the DarkSlayer had finally made it to audible after reading through the series twice already. The narration really brought the book to life. I can't wait to listen the rest of the series.
