Publisher's Summary

Putting the Grand Quest behind them, the party rides onward in search of answers. Between one member's unexpected new condition and the mysteries of the Bridge, their only hope appears to be gaining entrance to Lumal, said to hold the greatest collection of knowledge in all the kingdoms.   

But when a curious path appears in a seemingly uninhabited forest, the party finds themselves in a place set apart from the kingdoms, and the world at large: a hidden hamlet, filled by unusual people, all of whom have long histories of their own.   

Soon sealed inside the town by unseen forces, the former NPCs will have to uncover what brought them there - and who is keeping them trapped - while there's still time to fight back. Because something more is brewing, something involving the very gods themselves. With unknown enemies to the front and supposed allies at their rear, the party will need more than their usual tricks if they hope to see the outside world once more.

Fantastic RPG-based fiction!

Man, I love this series so much that it pains me to have to wait till whenever the next installment comes out. The narrator is absolute top notch; it’s hard to believe that so many distinct voices can come out of one man. I guess that’s what professionals do in this field. As an avid RPG gamer, I love how Drew Hayes brings RPGs to life (even moreso than that phrase normaly implies, if you’ve read this series!) and creates characters you care about. I’ve stolen so many ideas from Drew Hayes for the Pathfinder campaigns that I run - these stories are so rich and inspiring. Can’t wait till book 5!

Another thrilling tale!

Another winner from Drew Hayes! So easy to get completely caught up in the store and very difficult to put down! Narration was top notch thanks to Roger Wayne’s consistent excellence! Can’t wait for the next one!

The plot thickens!

Another great sequel. So many great twists and turns. It's a great setup for what's to come. Can't wait to see what happens next!! (By the way, love the fact that the narrator used a voice closer to the first book's version of Grumble.)

So many answers! So many new questions! So good!

If you are considering book 4 of the Spells, Swords, & Stealth Series, I'm going to assume that you already have read books 1-3 and say that you are in for a treat with book 4. Whereas other series may give you questions that are never answered until the very last book, Drew answers many of the questions that have been asked in the previous 3 books while keeping enough behind the screen and introducing logical next steps to eagerly await the next book.
Of course, the highlight of this book is the highlight of Drew Hayes as an author, his incredible character development. These are real characters fleshed out in incredible ways. While it may seem strange to have strong emotional ties with a half-orc or a goblin, by book 4 I was fully invested in these characters and have a deep friendship with them. Their joys and trials are gripping. I couldn't stop listening.
If you like fantasy, this is for you. If you've ever played a tabletop role playing game, this is for you. If you just want a great story read by a talented narrator who keeps the same voices over an entire series, this is for you. Basically, this story is for you. Get it.

Great expansion of the SS&S world

This book was just released, and I'm already itching for the next installment. It really grows the overall world of the series, and expands how it interacts with "our" world.

Fantastic, enthralling read. Deep characters that the reader truly appreciate and care about. One of the best if not the best in the series.

Well Done!

This series had me hooked from the first chapter and this fourth book brings the same level of excitement. You are drawn in like a player weighing risk and reward but reminded that you never really know the stakes of any "game". A wonderful read and a wonderful audio adventure.
