Description

From the international best-selling author of the Broken Empire Trilogy, the thrilling conclusion to the Red Queen's War.

Mark Lawrence's "epic fantasy" (The Washington Post) continues as a reluctant prince returns from the bowels of Hell to engage in his greatest battle yet - among the living and the dead.

All the horrors of Hell stand between Snorri Ver Snagason and the rescue of his family, if indeed the dead can be rescued. For Jalan Kendeth, getting back out alive and with Loki's key is all that matters. Loki's creation can open any lock, any door, and it may also be the key to Jalan's fortune back in the living world. Jalan plans to return to the three w's that have been the core of his idle and debauched life: wine, women, and wagering. Fate, however, has other plans - larger plans.

The Wheel of Osheim is turning ever faster, and it will crack the world unless it's stopped. When the end of all things looms and there's nowhere to run, even the worst coward must find new answers. Jalan and Snorri face many dangers, from the corpse hordes of the Dead King to the many mirrors of the Lady Blue, but in the end, fast or slow, the Wheel of Osheim always pulls you back. In the end it's win or die.

The perfect narrator

Such great narration is hard to find. Worth a listen for that alona. A fitting end to a good story. perhaps not better than Jorgs story, but is fun, universe building, witty and you have to love Snorri!

A fond farwell from the prince of fools.

While it does wander a bit, "The Wheel of Osheim" is a fairly good conclusion to the series, "The Red Queen's War". Being the third book there is a lot of content from the previous books that a listener must remember for most of it to make any sense, but for those who have been paying attention up until this point this book is worth the time.

Prince Jalan is still incredibly cowardly, whiney, narcissistic, selfish and sarcastic, but an audience will love him for the laughter he brings to the story as the main character. The narrator, Tim Gerard Reynolds, made audio magic with the entire series to this final entry and it is hard to imagine another person doing a better job.

The story starts off with a bang and we find Prince Jalan doing what he does best; running away. But soon he is once again tied to another epic quest that forces him to make a stand and face his fears...despite his best efforts not to. He is a liar and a cheat, but if anyone can save the world through a bizarre combination of blind luck and panic it's Prince Jalan.

This book recommended for people who already read the first two books of "The Red Queen's War" series and the entire series is recommended to fantasy adventure fans who would love to be entertained by humorously hypocritical main characters.

Jalen's tale better than Jorg's

Was not the biggest fan of the Empire of thorns trilogy. Never really could get behind the protagonist Jorg, and was not thrilled with the integration of the builder lore. Anytime a gun is introduced into an otherwise medieval world I'm out. So I was reticent to start this series. However, I'm happy to say that I was wrong. I really enjoyed this tale. Great characters, suspense and humor. The third book was a satisfying conclusion to the journey.

Good Finish After a Disappointing Middle.

Would you listen to The Wheel of Osheim again? Why?

Maybe. If I listen to Prince of Fools again maybe I will listen to it for continuity.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the development of Jal's character arc as well as completion of the plot lines.

Which scene was your favorite?

Jal confronting the Red Queen and the scene where he pays his debt.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh. When Jal attacks the unborn and screams Undereth.

Any additional comments?

Good ending to the overall story. The second book disappointed me but this was not bad. Still some of my criticisms of the second book stand. Kara does not fit in. I feel her character is shoehorned in to include a female protagonist and placate feminist audience. Compare it to the Red Queen's character. She fits right in. Same with Lady Blue and Silent Sister. Kara serves no purpose.

Starts out bizarrely but soon comes on full force

When we first venture into chapter 1 we find find our fearful hero Jalan wandering somewhat fracturessly <-(is a word?) between the Sahara desert and the nothingness of Hell, enduring one torment after another just trying to stay alive. Honestly, I was so confused with this unfolding start that I was fearful that Mark had misplaced his muse on book 3.

I'm pleased that I continued since after Jalan found his way out of Hell, the novel took off like a loosed trebuchet going from one exciting scene to the next near-death encounter and finally culminating with one of a rare nail-biting endings that I've experienced.

What is really fascinating is how Mark blended Norse mythology with Snorri playing an uber-Beowolf along Greek Mythology with Jalan playing a farcical Odysseus with bits of Christianity and even added some godless Nietzsche "Will to Power" magic. If that weren't enough, as if an ode to the Bard himself, he even included some welcomed quotes to pull off this fantastic story.

A decent end to an OK series

All in all I just didn't like The Red Queen nearly as much as The Broken Empire. As the protagonist, Jalen just could not hold a candle to Jorg. Humorous at times, but I mostly wanted to slap him for his spineless whining. Maybe Jorg ruined it for me. His char was so brutal when necessary that to do a 180 with Jalen was a bit much to take in.

Amazing

This is my first written review ever. I have to say that I absolutely loved this book. It was an amazing conclusion to the story and the performance was great as always from Tim, but more than that I have never laughed so much at an audiobook in my life. I have listened to all of books by Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Salvator, etc... And this series is now my favorite. The characters are just so well written and engaging. Loved it and will probably listen to it again here very soon.

Tim Gerard Reynolds nails it.

Jalan Kendith is so much fun! I laughed out loud more times than I could count.
