Amazing storytelling as always from John. But man, this narration. The great variance from character to characteris astounding. All of them have their own mannerisms and ways of speaking, it really helps your imagination bring it all together. Seriously superior stuff here. Possibly even better than book 1.

If you thought book 1 was good...

The story for book 2 is vastly different and is 10x more enjoyable. The narration is absolutely perfect.

What a fantastic tale. Cannot fault this book, it's just perfect. I'm now off to buy other books by this author and narrator!

Another fantastic addition

It's strange. I couldn't stand the narration change for eternium, but Luke Daniels did rexus so great and it carried over to this one. Fantastic performance and story.

I originally had this set as a 1 star review, due to the jarring narrator change, but let me tell you what happened...

I was pretty devostated when I saw the ritualist and the dungeon series changed narrator as vikus was near perfect for the role. When I started listening to this one it was just way too much of a change to stomach and I honestly hated most of the voices Luke chose. It made me rage quit and rate 1 stars.

But.. I lasted decided to give rexus and the ritualist a try with Luke Daniels and I have to say... It might have even been BETTER with Luke Daniels as narrator! I enjoyed it more than the previous chapters.

Anyway, that was enough for me to give this one a new crack. I can't say it was as good with Luke, but seeing his phenomenal performance on the other books, I could now stomach the jarring voice changes on this one.

It's certainly worth pushing through the change.

My son loves it

I listen to Luke Daniels a lot, (in fact I'm listening to a new book narrated by him now) so I was happy to see he narrated this, too. My son falls asleep listening to it every night.

Luke Daniels did very well taking over!

I like Luke Daniels but when I saw vikas didn't narrate this book I fell immediately sad.. I didn't think it matched Luke's style at all, but he proved me wrong. What a wacky, fantastic performance.

On top of that, this book made me laugh more than anything else I've ever read. So jump in guys... And prepare to laugh.

Edit: After finishing the book, I came back to say if I could give it even more stars I would. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out, it's going to be weird having our friendly chiropractor as just a side character again!

I can't tell if the final line of the book was a play on the popular meme...

I loved this series. It was awesome to see him turn from noob to a true tactical God over 3 books. I'm now sad it's over..

I almost passed it up...

I don't know what it is, but I don't like reading old books or watching old movies. When I realised this book was written 33 years ago I almost returned it... I'm so glad I didn't. This book is phenomenal and I really got attached to the characters. Recommended!

Fantastic from start to finish!

I purchased this book after listening to the Children of Time books hoping it was similar.. It wasn't, but that's not in any way a bad thing. I loved how each stage of his life was completely different from the last, but all meshes together beautiful at the same time.

Adrian may be my favorite new writer!

EDIT: months on and I've come back to listen to this a further 2 times. This is without a doubt my favorite book.
