Description

The destruction of the secret archive of the Royal Order of Keepers on Mars has left Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage-King, with his enemies defeated, his lover dead - and his questions unanswered.

When he seeks out the remaining Keepers for answers, he discovers only violence and death in their strongholds. Someone else is hunting down the survivors to make sure they never answer Damien's questions - or anyone else's.

As a wave of murder sweeps Mars and the consequences of the Keepers' conspiracy sink home, Damien is summoned before the Council of the Protectorate to answer for the deaths of two other Hands. In the political heart of the Protectorate of Mars, he finds he may be forced to choose between honoring the oaths he swore and preserving the survival of the Protectorate itself.

Disappointing(spoilers... Kinda)

Someone else's review mentions it, but a near omniscient enemy that manages to always be ahead is pointlessly dreary. Unsolvable incidents of stupid in otherwise intelligent characters is frustrating at best. And the grand finale with evidence of war crimes, mass murder/terrorism, and treason, no no its fine, go ahead no repercussions. It just really undermines the whole justice and strength bits of the protectorate. Seriously, no need to play nice, they're responsible for a million dead or more...

Also, it seems this story has been continued, but this book seems to have been written at lesser quality in terms of plot, development, and characters to intentionally force gaps to allow follow up story lines. To me this brings the follow up content into question. If you have to force holes to fit continuations, are they actually going to reach acceptable quality.

The performance as usual was quite good, though let down by the content somewhat. And for all my complaints there are certainly good points about the book. However compared to the others books the failings in this one were extremely upfront and were clearly used to put things off for the sake of delaying and lengthening the story. It was seriously hampered by repeatedly using the same encounters over and over again instead of varying interactions. This made the book feel.... Boring and repetitive whenever you hit the sequence of interactions.

Sorry for the vagueness/spoilerness.. It needs some reference to events in the book to communicate my complaints, but I don't want to ruin things for people who choose to read/listen to the book.

I hate omniscient villains

For me there was just too much of the bad guys always getting their way, too much of the good guys being just a little too late, too much of almost knowing the secret. I admit I got annoyed about halfway through and listened to the rest in bits and pieces but I am truly disappointed in the ending - I hate omniscient villains!

I give the title 3 stars because I'm still interested in the plot to give the next one a try. I hope it's a more balanced story.

First Hand... when is the next book

This book is just as good as the previous ones if not better. Unlike previous books (arguably) this one focuses more on political intrigue but still has the action you would expect. We don't get to find out what the keepers secret is in this book and I'm not quite sure we will ever find out. But I would really like to know what it is. We see more of the Mage King in this book and I quite like him. I am eagerly awaiting the next book can't wait.

WOW, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!

Wonderful writing and performance. Damian Montgomery, the Hand of Mars, is kept busy trying to find the Keepers but is constantly thwarted by his enemies. With his strength and his mage powers he was able to save so many people from death. I like that the Mage King of Mars appreciates his efforts and loyalty and he was rewarded at the end of this book with a promotion and recognition of his achievements. Glynn Stewart is a talented writer and I hope he will publish the next book in this series ASAP. Jeffrey Kafer performed excellently and I hope he will continue to narrate future books in this series.

Judgement of Mars .

Okay I'm hook I'm invested this protagonist is one of the best main characters that I have ever read . The plot of this series is in my opinion perfect I can not wait until Damien finally get to the bottom of this whole affair . I can't say that I'm a fan of breaking a main character down too the point that Damien has been I mean come on messing up his runes like that I would not have gone that route anyway looking forward to the next book .

Great futuristic science fiction.

I enjoy reading and listening to books by Glynn Stewart. Holds my interest while relaxing and driving. The Narrator Jeffery Kafer is gifted with his talent. Holds my interest while I am driving and makes my commute to and from work seem shorter. Great series to read as well as listen.

fun, smart drama. interesting science battles

I like the evolution of the characters. The story is believable; human beings will forever be interesting, sad, disappointing, brilliant, clever and clueless.

You must listen to this book.

Damon Montgomery makes sacrifice after sacrifice for the protectorate and gets what he deserves in this audiobook.

Entrancing

Boy oh boy! I can’t stop listening. This tail of intrigue keeps me fascinated. Darn it, I didn’t do some of the work I planned listening to this. If you have something that really needs to be done, don’t start this book.
