Description

War looms on the horizon, but Selene’s training as a wizard must begin...even though her age makes success nearly unattainable.

Will searches for a solution, but their only hope may be a dangerous bargain with the king. The fate of two nations lies on his shoulders, and the future is paved with violence. With few options, he needs the aid of uncertain allies and dubious friends. Traitors lurk among them, and soon he will be forced to choose who to trust - and who to sacrifice. For a terrible power has arrived in Darrow, and the price of victory will be paid in blood.

Better than The Kingkiller Chronicles!

I absolutely loved the name of the wind and the wise man's fear... but this series takes the main character through learning magic, character development, and being epic in his magical skills, far beyond what I wish the Kingkiller Chronicles did!
I hope the next Kingkiller book brings it up to par with this series!

love this series

Tim Jared Reynolds as always, is spectacular. The storyline was good with a few twists and turns I were highly unexpected. As always, the story definitely produced.

Pre Review for Audible here

(I haven't finished this book yet so this only applies to the first 12 hours or so.) There is nothing wrong with Tim's performance it is excellent as always, However there are severe quality problems with the audio itself. There are sections of audio that go in and out. One of high quality and warmth, the second only lasts for a few words or sentence's but it sounds like it was recorded on my phones memo app its tinny, muddy and distant. It was infrequent for the first 6-7 hours of the book and then it started to happen more and more often, the audio just phases back and forth from high to low quality. I don't know if production was rushed on this but it sounds like edits to the audio were poorly sliced in. Its not enough ruin the experience of the story but it breaks the flow and its something that Podium and Audible should defiantly fix, its not even close to their normal standards.

EDIT: Now that I've finished the book I can report that the audio issues get worse and more frequent in the last quarter of the book. There are points where the transition happens multiple times in the same sentence. Where as before it was infrequent and a minor annoyance; towards the last 6 hours of the book it was a near constant and jarring interruption to the performance. With about 2.5 hours left in the book, I bought the kindle version and finished it off the old fashioned way.

It is an excellent addition to the "Art of the Adept" series, the Story and Tim's performance deserve five stars. However the QC department needs to be suspended without pay, I would have rather waited another week or two for them to sort out this issue then for it to be rushed with such glaring problems.

Jarring recording EQ differences.

There appears to be two different EQ settings for the narration being used. The majority of the book is great, but then there are "patch" sections of audio that has less mid-range and the difference is rather jarring to listen to.

All of those patch sections really need to be re-recorded using the same mic and EQ settings so it sounds like a cohesive audiobook.

Love the book, great performance but...

This needs an additional pass through the QC department. Just some choppy audio. I downloaded it the day it came out so it may be fixed already

Audio needs to be redone

Story is as great as usual. The audio however is full of issues. The performance is fine, but it sounds like random sections were recorded with a different microphone so audio randomly shifts pitch /tone.

great book, awful audio

audio needs to be either recorded or go through some major editing as half of the lines are recorded with high quality microphones and the other half sounds like a cell phone

A different direction, so much its forced

This book goes in a different direction than the rest of the series, to the point that it runs counter to everything else in the series. In the first hour it basically negates any character devlopment the protagonist has had in the series, reverse his morals, and ignores any convictions he had.

It doesn't feel like the fourth book in a series, it feels like the series finished with book 3, and someone wrote a bad fanfic because they didn't want the story to end there, and made it dark because why not.

And I will treat it as such. As far as I'm concerned, this series ended with book 3.

Good idea, but bad execution.

Dull, to say the least. Voices were miss used many times. Other than about 5 of the 65ish chapters the story was flat. The concept however is good, and I look forward to the next book but if it is written as this one, I won't be continuing to follow the story arc.
Comparing this to the previous 3 books is almost impossible, it's as if someone just forgot how characters reacted in the previous books and how they just out of the blue acted in a convenient was for the story line. "I say someone because anyone who reviewed, wrote or listened this book before publishing it would be able to see that in chapter one and on to the final chapter the charictors are not realistic in regards to their thoughts and actions."

Terrible

I loved the first two books in this series. The third book was not as good. This fourth book just plain sucked.

Will made one utterly stupid choice after another. He had to be saved by his friends again and again. Also, his moral compass apparently no longer works. He was a dislikable, stupid, and impotent protagonist.

I hated this book from start to finish. It was as if a different writer wrote the prose. I definitely won't pick up another book by this author.

I feel guilty for forcing myself through this

One again, Tom Gerard Reynolds is great. This story though...it's so... not good. It's saccharine fantasy. The main character is a Gary Stu. His wife is a Mary Sue. They are the most politically correct, open minded couple in their world. They are beautiful and brilliant. The boy scout sentimentality the main character has gets super old. He has no real character flaws., so there can be no real charades growth. His only flaw might be that his wife is more perfect and brilliant than he is. The main character is a military tactics genius with zero formal training. He is a gifted orator and natural leader. He is so much wiser than all those old fools with the experience and training. Goodness, the characters annoyed me so much! I really punished myself by forcing my way through this story.

A disappointing add to the series

little happens in a good portion of the beginning and it feels very forced to start problems that barely stick. hard to finish at all
