Ancient Enmity Ends
I have enjoyed a number of books by this author and while I still prefer his Wanderers series to the others he has done, this was another good listen with it edging more towards the horror end of the fantasy genre.
Unbeknownst to her, Greta's family had suffered greatly over the years due to a monstrous and seemingly immortal enemy who would keeping finding them and wiping out as much of a generation as he could before the others escaped and now he has returned to finally finish this work. Beyond the basic premise of the book, the author has used a number of interesting ideas to further enhance the overall story and has a cast of relatively normal people who are thrown into this horrific situation.
The choice of this narrator was a very good one, she really manages to bring the main character to life with her performance while also managing to be sufficiently distinctive with the rest of the supporting cast too, nicely enhancing the book in the process.
Overall, this was another enjoyable listen from this author and a nicely self-contained story.
