Publisher's Summary

Unlikely allies uniting across the world. Blood feuds that span centuries. A single chance at life.

The world watches the sky with trepidation. The insanity of Xenocide knew no bounds, and all will soon suffer the effects he had planned for a millennium. Though none know what is to come, they all know it isn't going to be easy to survive.

The Master has a plan, one that can give the world at large a way to escape the onrushing desolation. It may be on the bleeding edge of morality and what he needs might prove too difficult to secure, but the Master asks for trust.

Cal and Dale both have their role to play as the world hurtles toward destruction. One needs to bring the races of the world together while the other simply needs to survive. Surrounded by supposed allies, the duo will do all that they can to succeed - but with every new arrival comes rising tensions and faltering trust.

The apocalypse is coming. Will honor or greed stand the test of time?

Get the old guy

This is one of my favorite series and I've been absolutely loving it and then you get this guy to narrate. What were you thinking, he's horrible. The story was completely ruined for me by his narration.

Good, but has issues

I like Luke Daniels as a narrator, so the change wasn’t that big of an issue, but there are some editing issues such as lines repeating that took me out of this book and lowered the overall score of this one compared to the others

Amazing book poor narrator

Luke Daniels can not do very good female voices especially in comparison to this series previous narrator.

I miss Vikas

Luke Daniels does a good job, but misses the mark on a few characters. I miss Hans' and Dani's old voices, but I like Tom's new one. Not sure why they decided to change voice actors so deep into the story.

love the story, the narrator not so much

Book itself is really good, however I dislike the new narrator, I believe that Vikas was a narrator that was more suited to finishing this series however I am happy with Luke, tough it would have been better if he started from the beginning.

Good book, good voice actor, bad editing

It's good book, that also answered questions about the past books. With that said, it does feels like some characters have had personality changes without any real reason. Though that could be because of the new voice actor and the way he changed their voices. Which I really like as he brings a new depth to the majority of characters. But it does feel like some characters that where prioritized with the last voice actor where overlooked with this new one. A prefect example of this would be Danny, because with Adams she had a voice variation and felt like a living character and different from other characters. While with Luke she has no voice variations, and she's more forgettable and feels like a background character rather than a main sidekick, as there's no difference between her voice and the narrative or people like Dale or Cal.

Also i forgot about this, but the editing is bad there are parts of the book where it'll just repeat.

Great book. Difficult changing readers.

This book was marvellous, the same as the rest of the books in the series the issue occurred when the reader changed. I had listened to the other books earlier in the year and it may not have been as big a shock as it would’ve been if I had been listening to them in a row.

Nevertheless, by the end of the book I was just as invested into the characters and story. Give the reader a chance, the author is worth it!

Great Continuation

With the new narrator it took a little getting used to. It was still a great book and I look forward to more in this universe.

ugh, narrator

I enjoyed Luke Daniels reading Rexxus, it was different, but felt like a valid interpretation of the characters. Here, he completely ignored everything Vikas Adams did and gave all character voices new quirks. I got really tired of Cal sounding like an impression of Peter Griffin, and various other characters gaining random accents. It was difficult to get into the story because of this.

Change of narrator is very disturbing

Changing from Vikas Adams to Luke Daniels is very jarring. Characters who once sounded convincingly female now sound like whiskey-drinking obese grandfathers. Rose became a 50 year old Scottish man who loves smokey single malts, at least from the voice. Dani is an old sailor recovering from a bout of tuberculosis. Cal is suddenly a kibbitzing Northeasterner with a heavy, if slightly hard to place, accent. That said, the story is still a lot of fun. And, after a book or so maybe I'll adapt to these new voices. I sure do miss Vikas Adams' narrations of these characters though.

Same issue every other reviewer has

Please Audible. Can you consider making it a principle to not change a narrator with a long series. It feels like the characters have gone through extreme personality changes. I didn't check before buying for a narrator assuming it is business as usual. Luke seems like he is overacting the roles maybe it is just because the other guy was more low key and calm.

Went though this experience with Got and also suffered. Like imagine you wake up one day and your two best friends switched voices

Vikas Adam was better.

Let me start by saying I like the narrator Luke Daniels, but Vikas Adam was better. Also not sure why they felt the need to switch narrators so far into a book series, Vikas also had more distinct voices which made it easier to follow. A disappointing change for this fan of Dakota Kraut.

change in narrator nearly killed all characters.

It is sad to follow a book series this deep and have the narrator changed out.

It's good, but read it yourself.

Do you remember the 90's, and saturday morning cartoons, where 4kids would just take anime and plaster random dubs over a show, totally changing the tone and feel of a series just to make a profit? Well, that's what this book is like.

Luke Daniels is a narrator I've enjoyed before, but his voices just don't work for this series. The tone genuinely sounds like a saturday morning cartoon at times, with his voices sometimes being far too exaggerated, especially when compared to the voices done by Vikas Adams. Speaking of voice comparisons, Daniels' voices sound nothing like the ones performed by Adams. We're on the 5th book of a series, so such a dramatic change in how characters sound is very jarring and confusing. If he was at least trying to sound similar to Vikas' voices I could accept it, but he gives characters radically different voices, and sometimes different accents, and as a result it's hard to immerse myself in the series, since I'm constantly confused on who is talking, and constantly comparing his voices to the voices I'm expecting.

I feel bad going so hard against Daniels, but I just didn't enjoy his version of these characters at all and genuinely wish I'd just read the book myself. The story itself is great, and exactly what I expected from the series, but the narration change seriously hurts my enjoyment of this series.

Almost felt like a different story. Wasn't happy with so many people sounding like red necks.

All female Voices sound like grumpy old man voice

Love the series. Love previous Narrator but they switched Narrator and well.... its a good story but you have to suffer through horrible voices on some of the characters. Don't get me wrong you can still enjoy the story but many times when the narrator switches voices I have to concentrate on who is supposed to be talking because the voice just does not fit the character. If you loved the previous books you will get this one and its worth the credit. I just hope Dakota goes back to Vikas Adam as Narrator.

New Narrator

I enjoy both voice actors. However, I feel like this is an entirely new book and am struggling to feel the same investment in the characters.

Great story. Bad Narrator.

The story is awesome Mr. Krout did an epic job as usual. The narrator however was abysmal. Everyone except Cal and his wisp and one other dungeon sounded like they were doing a bad Bela Lugosi. Cal and wisp sounded like they were from Brooklyn and the other dungeon an infernal was a very insulting bad southern accent. For me the narrator made the story very hard to listen to. I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the Narrator.
