I had an entire lineup I planned to get though after this book, but after experiencing this wonderfully and hilariously greusome story with some of the most gripping and creative narration I have ever heard on Audible, I'm now on to listen to everything that Jesse Bullington and Christopher Lane have ever contributed their talents to!

Amazing Storytelling, Jarring Plot Hook

Fantastic storylines for Gavin, Liv, Karis, and The Mighty. I would read an entire book series just about Liv.

Baffling storyline for Kip and Tysus. I understand that what they struggled with is a serious condition that more people should be aware of... but while we're on that subject, why not talk about the issue of 17th century soldiers who defecate their guts out and die from dysentery, or how nobles deal with not impregnating their room slaves. Do condoms exist? Made from... orange luxen?

The point is, I don't care to know the answers to these questions in my fantasy novels. I do also read historical fiction, but that's not what this book is.

(Sorry for spelling - I've never seen any of the above names and terms in written.)

Maybe I'm just totally f'd in the head, but I found these stories tame and predictable. The narrator's performance was fine, but microphone quality sounded like a highschooler's class project. This would be a good choice for something to fall to sleep to on the subway, in the hope that it will inspire something more gruesome for your dreams.
