Eisenhorn is an enjoyable character to follow and the adventure element of the story is quite strong. Some predictable moments but quite a satisfying story nonetheless

A great finish. Very epic.

A good finish to the series. Starts small scale and progressively becomes epic. Some great characters and while there are tropes the magic and political systems and worlds are enjoyable. Very granular on the battles and combat. Tantalising glimpse into the broader universe in this book..

had difficulty getting into the story, but some great concepts explored and a pretty snazzy finish.

well read, although the voice actor's female voices can be jarring. would prefer combination with a female voice actor

one of the better series I have experienced

the narrator was great. the story epic, grim but satisfying for those with a taste for vengeance.

Great story and great reading

Brutal but rewarding continuation of the Raven's shadow series. Well read by the voice actor. Thoroughly enjoyable finale.

Fun, but not as convincing as the first

I enjoyed the ride but was struck by some jarring "deus ex" moments. Some great humour mixed in with dark and sad moments. Superb performance by the voice actor.

A pretty engaging tale, well told!

while it borrows a little from the tropes of fantasy, this is an engaging novel of a grim world. I didn't know whether to cheer for the characters or not, but wanted to hear their tale anyway. I can't wait for the next one. The voice actor is excellent, particularly for the masculine storyline presented.
