Publisher's Summary

Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems.

For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion. And if he survived that, he had to get home somehow, in spite of the enemies determined to stop him, to face the Dark God who had sworn to destroy all hradani. But one thing Bahzell had learned: a champion of the War God Tomanak does what needs to be done. And those who got in his way had better watch out.

    "Too much, maybe"

    I enjoyed the first book if it didn't get to the point of this but there was something I didn't like about this one. The God of war in this seems to be more manipulative than the dark gods and the story seems predictable.

    Story
    "Paladin in action"

    Once I started the first book, I ended up getting the second immediately, and I am planning on getting the third book soon. Like this first book it is also a fast paced book.

    It is very enjoyable audio book that style of narration matches with the story very well, and over all it is a lot of fun to listen to this book.

    Our barbarian Paladin is introduced officially to the rest of its deity's order, and things become interesting. Book has a very good narrative about the prejudices and bigotry though sometimes it is repetitive.

    Couple of characters introduced in book are amusing and sense of humor does work within this book as well. It is pretty much a continuation of first book without any breaks and I recommend this book as well that these books are solid 4 star books. Very enjoyable.

    "If you liked the first book, you'll like this one"

    This is a strong continuation of the series. I find Nick Sullivan's reading of these books to be superb, really increasing my enjoyment of the scenes. This series is one of the most enjoyable series I have listened to, and I would strongly recommend it for anyone who just wants to listen to entertaining fluff.

    Story
    "Not just a sequal."

    This second book works well as a sequal, or as a stand alone story; it's actually better than the first book, becuase the characters are established; so the author needs do no more than remind the reader about who's who, instead of spending a lot of time establishing the players. The reader, as always, is excellent.

    Story
    "One of the best sword and sorcery tales around."

    David Weber is one of my absolute favorite authors and this series is an example why.

    This is a great story made truly outstanding by the fantastic narration by Nick Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan goes beyond mere narration into voice acting, going so far as to use different geographical accents for characters from different parts of the story's world. This extra touch makes the story come to life for me.

    "Fantastic!!!"

    I don't normally get emotionally involved in books but this one got me.
    I cheered for the good guys and hated the villains!
    Great read. I couldn't stop listening to it!

    Story
    "Feels like reading to kids"

    Dark gods battle Light. Wizards battle mages. Priests summon demons with virgin sacrifices. The just god of war seeks a champion among the five races of man: elves, dwarves, halflings, humans, and the berserker-crazed Hradani.

    This fantasy novel held my attention well enough, and I liked the main characters, but the author interrupts the flow with lengthy info-dumps at times. Also, he describes things and places at length, including some things that don't matter to the plot.

    The narration is such that the book began to feel like it was written for juveniles -- older kids. The narration is clear and comprehensible, but Sullivan overdoes it -- he stresses almost every sentence. Personally, I find that type of over-emphasis distracting.

    "More Character Development than Action"

    This book did not have near as much action in it as the first one but was still a good read if you are invested in the series. You learn more about the different races, their history and how it affects the interaction of the races that was left a little lacking from the first novel.

    Nick Sullivan's narration, as the first, was top notch.
