Publisher's Summary

When murdered sinners fail to show up in hell, it's up to Salim Ghadafar, an atheist warrior forced to solve problems for the goddess of death, to track down the missing souls. In order to do so, Salim will need to descend into the anarchic city of Kaer Maga, following a trail that ranges from hell's iron cities to the gates of heaven itself. Along the way he'll be aided by a host of otherworldly creatures, a streetwise teenager, and two warriors of the mysterious Iridian Fold. But when the missing souls are the scum of the Earth and the victims devils themselves, can anyone really be trusted?

    Story
    "A Celestial Crime"

    Salim, an atheist priest serving the goddess of death (oxymoron much?), must investigate an accused crime being committed by angels. When suddenly souls belonging to Hell are no longer reaching their Judgement, Salim must literally go to Hell and back to solve it.

    But how could such righteous creatures; formed out of pure-hearted souls and infused with Heaven's divine values with honestly built into their very bones be responsible for such heinous acts? Are the devils in their usual way using, lying, and scheming their way to use Salim for their own wants and needs?

    I found the book to be very descriptive and interesting in the complex way a mere mortal had to solve a conflict between Heaven and Hell using intelligence, charisma, and a bit of wisdom. This wasn't the most philosophical book I've come across, but was certainly more than what I expected.

    Story
    "To Hell and Back Again"
    If you could sum up The Redemption Engine in three words, what would they be?

    A good read to be sure. His ideas of angels and devils is unique.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    He always knows how to keep the character in the emotion of the moment . I've enjoyed almost everything I listen too of his.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No ir is far to large and too much to absorbe concidering it is a trek through both Heavens and Hells.


    Any additional comments?

    I also enjoyed his second book but found it somewhat predictable from the start story line wise.

    "Getting better"

    This story is better than the last one. I enjoy the vivid descriptions and extra planar denizens. I look forward to more. Having gay guys in the book didn't help but it didn't hurt. I'm seeing a liberal pattern in the writer's content. I think the stories could be better without the underlying agenda. Ray Porter's performance was exquisite.

    Story
    "Better than expected, and expectations were high!"

    It would have been easy for this story to follow predictable paths, and lean on common crutches. Alternatively, the author could have been contrarian, obviously going out of their way to avoid common plot beats. However, this story does neither. It's refreshingly novel, with twists that surprise without feeling silly or forced. Also, it takes itself seriously enough, but not so serious as to be cringeworthy.

    Overall a respectful, entertaining treatment of pathfinder / D&D material that would probably be interesting to general fantasy readers with no background in the specific fantasy licences.

    "Worth a listen"

    Didn't enjoy this story as much as the first one but still worth the money and entertaining enough. The voice actor again was excellent, really helps bring the story to life.

    Story
    "High fantasy for those who don't like high fantasy"

    I don't like fantasy. I can just about get through The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but high fantasy usually leaves me cold. James L. Sutter's Pathfinder Tales, however, are engaging, complex and fun. I love the characterisation, the action and the drama of the higher multiverse of gods and demons intruding on the mortal world. The atheist hero, Salim the Priest Hunter, is complex, simultaneously tragic and heroic, a man who has lived long enough to see the humour in the games the gods play.

    Ray Porter's narration is pretty much a masterclass in how it should be done. I love the way he brings characters both human and non-human to life, giving each a unique voice. Highly recommended!

    Story
    "Even Better Than the First in the Series"
    Where does The Redemption Engine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very highly - the story's twisty enough and the characterisation is brilliant. It's impossible not to like the main protagonist.


    What other book might you compare The Redemption Engine to, and why?

    Nothing springs to mind, other than Death's Heretic.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Only for 'Deaths Heretic' and both were excellent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Bors and Rashad were a good tag team, and who doesn't like an angel who cries tears of blood?


    Any additional comments?

    It blends the world of Golarion with the human story well.
