So good!!

I absolutely loved this series! Could not get enough, even with all the post-stories that they added to the end of each book!

Beautiful Series

David did an amazing job with the characters and the story. I could not stop listening. Once I started the first book - Fatemarked- I was hooked. I hope beyond all hope HBO or some network would may a tv series of it!

Lost a star for excessive use of “hither and thither”

Derek Perkins is brilliant! I love his work and how he clearly delineated each characters voice and vocal mannerisms. The story was also quite enjoyable. It had some slow parts but all stories do. Biggest drawback for me was as noted in the title. It might work well in written form, but spoken word it just yanked me out of the moment every time. Otherwise I really enjoyed it. I greatly liked the religious depths that were looked at.

loved this entire series

I couldn't wait to start the next one each time. The entire series kept me on the edge of my seat, and I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. Character development was wonderful. When you have so many different stories going, it's easy to get lost jumping from one to the other. I never had that problem and really enjoyed how they all came together at the end. I also loved the epilogue. It was really nice to hear "the rest of the story."

Great series, great narrator

This series held my attention all the way through. There were times when it got a little unrealistic- everyone ready to die for everyone else but it pulled back into great fantasy adventure. Loved it.

Worthy of most popular series

Still. My personal favorite remains Joe Abercrombie. Perhaps because the First Law Trilogy was the first grimdark fantasy series I ever listened to.

Lame

I kind of hated the ending. Feels like a cop out.

*Spoilers


No need to have roan choose between the two, killing him is easier. And super lame.

8 hours between Terran and Anise, 0 seconds between Gywn and Roan.

Hate the dragon, hate the soul, hate the lame ending.
