Publisher's Summary

Revenge, they say, is a dish best served bloody and twitching.

For Kellik, nothing matters so much as defeating his father and destroying his reign over Port Gloom.

But as powerful as Kellik has become, his father will surely crush him if he doesn't stay three steps ahead. Toward that end, he'll have to employ every ounce of cunning, break every rule, wrest ever advantage, and bring the very fury of the Hanged God down upon Port Gloom.

Burning with a furious desire to crush his opponents, Kellik will return with his gorgeous rogues' gallery of companions to attack the ancient city from all sides: Using politics, assassinations, betrayals, and outright warfare, he'll stop at nothing to ensure his father's downfall.

He's willing to risk it all. But is there a price to victory even he's not willing to pay?

Warning and minor spoilers: This is an 18+ audiobook intended for mature listeners. It contains graphic sex, medieval violence, and nudity.

good series <br />

I enjoyed the entire series. I had thoughts it would be predictable but never expected the ending. when fighting foes more powerful the ending is never good.
I hate final battles where our loved mc gets luckier than wagon full of leprechauns. our mc was neither loved or lucky. thanks for a great story

Oops he did it again

This story was amazing I think I will be a life long fan of his work . It is a easy recommendation I found that it kept guessing how he was going to end this book.

GIVE ME A BOOK 4 & 5 PLEASE !!!!!!!!!

THIS BOOK IS LIKE IF THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO AND V FOR VENDETTA HAD A LOVE CHILD THAT WAS RAISED IN A ROMAN/JAPANESE HAREM FANTASY !!! Mike Truk you are the best thing since individually wrapped cheese you left me with at least six unanswered questions but somehow you did not leave this book on a cliffhanger. The sex scenes were amazingly well-written as usual and I have to say the story was obviously phenomenal by itself but I need more...... when will the Shadow Rogue meet the Lost River, can the shadow rogue meet the last River PLEASE SAY YES, how many syndicates are going to pop up trying to be the new family, does Kelliks father have a legitimate son or even worse daughter out there, and most importantly to me anyway can Pony please get laid by a City troll LMFAO ????????? I'M SORRY THERE'S GOT TO BE AT LEAST TWO MORE BOOKS.

This was a great story to get lost in.

I very much enjoy getting lost in stories and this one made it easy. I will be looking into Mr. Truks' other series.

Great end to another strong series!

Mike Truk is such an under-rated author. Everyone of his quirks hits the spot. Action, adventure, politics, sex, suspense... these books have it all. You never stop rooting for the MC or his companions. The MC is strong, cunning, and charming without pushing the boundary into OP. The characters have ebook depth to make them interesting without pulling undue ficus from the plot. The story wrapped up nicely, leaving with the notion that the MC will eventually make the worlds into his vision.

My only complaint is the pace of the narration. for some reason, this installment was read so slowly. I increased the rate to 1.2x and that fixed the issue; a minor thing.
