Publisher's Summary

The looming war with Darrow has faded to a distant shadow, but Will’s continued studies at Wurthaven are disrupted by an unforeseen threat.

Selene’s absence has raised suspicion among her friends and Will’s father-in-law, the king, is now directing his ire at the obvious culprit: his daughter’s new husband. Meanwhile, the citizens of Cerria have begun disappearing and a shadowy figure is stalking Will’s sister, Laina.

With his power pushed to the limit, Will finds himself attempting to preserve a family that rejected him and trying to save a city whose king might rather see him dead. Desperate for help, he may not be able to trust the powers that have supported him in the past, for though the fae could be the source of the catastrophe, they only offer their assistance for a price. Evil stalks the streets of Cerria at night, seeking the blood of his family, the destruction of the city, and the death of the king.

Will may have to decide what is most important for Terabinia: preserving the people of its most prosperous city or saving its questionable ruler.

Great, but....

I loved this book and was entertained by it. however, it feels like this series has lost direction and purpose. all it is now is main character trying to live life rather than having an overarching goal. it was also hard to relate to the book for me. the character made many questionable decitions that don't seem consistent with his personality.(spoiler) like saving a moral enemy.

Sorcery, bravery, and...humor?

This series is fantastic, each one is fun, well written, and funny. Think “Lies of Locke Lamora” for humor, Kvothe’s brilliance from “Name of the wind”, and Sebastian de Castell writing quality all rolled into one.
The Narrator is really good too! Definitely a worthwhile pick up

Not as good as first 2 books

The voice actor was great. I just really didn’t like that this book had SOOO much idle conversation and over explanations. It felt really dragged out which frustrated me many times. It just felt like someone was trying to meet a word count requirement and ranted on and on about irrelevant stuff. Overall, I still liked the book but it could have been (and should have been) much shorter.

The feelings this book gives are raw and touches on what we all desire in humanity. Love, trust, and bravery.

Great story

The story is just as good as in the previous installments, but that's not what encouraged me to write a review. I really must compliment the narrator. After listening to the first two in the series, I bought the kindle version because this audiobook wasn't available yet, and the author's writing didn't do the story justice. It was awkward and didn't seem to flow properly, which you just don't notice with Tim reading it. He more than brought it to life. He didn't just make the audiobook enjoyable, his skills significantly contributed to keeping the story enjoyable.

Funny Notification

Love the Series.

Just noticed a notification beep in Chapter 49, 11:09 mins, give yourself a couple seconds before and you will hear it.

Otherwise character development and story progression. Real life stressors and unexpected consequences are all great to listen too. Keep it up

Excellent as always

The story and narration work incredibly well together. While it feels like a Part 2 of the previous book, it doesn't take away from the adventure. I'm looking forward to the next installment.
