When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

so tired of fantasy books where everyone is an ignorant snobby douch. I can understand a few characters to create conflict or mirror every day life. But it's so frustrating when u have to sit thru 15 to 20 chapters of spiteful bs and the cowardly main character just eats it up. why would the author want his readers to spend half the time gritting their teeth in frustration? Cant imagine that makes for a good experience.

the main character is a worthless human being in every regard. wish I never picked this up. biggest mystery is how this book is so popular. no loyalty to ppl who deserve it but seeks acceptance from the most pitifull ppl like his father.

great performance by the narrator but the story is saturated with ridiculous amounts of prejudice and racism. the constant ignorance is grating too much negativity. I get the idea of world building but it's just too much bs.

Gryff never knew he was the most powerful summoner in the world until a rogue monster attacked his village. Now he's been recruited into the top magical academy, beautiful women are breaking down his dorm-room door, and the headmaster has big, big plans for him. Instead of summoners being maligned by society, Gryff is in a position to make them revered and honored.

the narrator did a great job with the voices and pacing. but the story is weak and extremely cliche. the female characters are all standard types like tsundere, prankster/clown and over sexed teacher. the backstories for the support characters are spoon fed as every character bears there souls when asked rather then natural progression thru interaction.

For eons, conquering dungeons has been the most efficient way to become a strong adventurer. Although not everything is as straightforward as it seems. Several questions have always plagued the minds of those who enter these mythical places of power: why are there so many monsters? Where do the amazing weaponry and heavy gold coins come from? Why does the very air fill with life-giving energies? Cal has all of the answers to these age-old questions, for a very simple reason. He is a Dungeon Heart.

enjoyed the 2 previous books but not a fan of this one. The narrator did a terrible job on all the tribal voices compared to previous books. The authors choices are poor making for a terrible plot and an awful ending.

It’s time for the Bloody-Nine to come home. With too many masters and too little time, Superior Glokta is fighting a different kind of war. A secret struggle in which no-one is safe and no-one can be trusted.

great narration but the story doesn't conclude anything and it gets darker then I'd like to see. Good but it hurts itself no heroes and no victories.
