Excellant addition to the saga

Interesting perspective of the adventures that gods hammer and the warlock of the century get into. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't focus more on Tanya given it was from her viewpoint but overall enjoyable.

Narration really suffered

I don’t know what happened or why but the narration on this book was the worst in the series by far. Distracting to the point where I almost stopped listening. Please fix!

Weakest link in 16 book chain. Bad not fatally so.



James Cronin's narration gets a lot of hate in other reviews here, and thats partly deserved. In trying to give these characters life they all have their own voices, and some are better than others. The worst and most grating of all is his accent for Tanya, who is the POV character this outing not just in her dialog but in the narration is in that mindbogglingly bad voice. Its just painful. Seriously Tanya (and Arkady) need to die heroicly or they need a new narrator,

Conroe own the second half of the train wreck. The trope he uses over and over and over again is the childsih stupidity of every single person in the world who isn't one of his heroes, Nobody, not a single character... anywhere... once shows a single hint of intelligence. Its like they're saving the world of Idiocracy, and that just requires more suspension of disbelief than even a book full of vampire angels and werewolf-bears justifies.

Good but some mispronounciation

As normal the book is an excellent addition to the series. However the narrator mispronounced the word Loa (Low-uh) and called them the Iowa. Also in Africa the type of witchcraft used isn't Voodoo it's Vudun, the origin of Voodoo and used for less nefarious deeds.

the over explanations are starting to annoy me

every emotion situation or conversation just has to be fully explained to the point where i dont even feel thats how people talk to each other. and they constantly explain how badass they are to themselves and everybody else, or the need to explain every emotion behind every action or reaction. longtime fan of series but this how recent books feel to me. little room for nuance or silent interpretation.
i like the world but hope that part improves can hardly read for long time the breaks to explain just pull me right out of the experience

good

Much better than the last book and I do love this series When I seen this was being released I was disappointed because At 1st it looked like it was going to be another side character type of book like The last one It kind of was but it had the 2 main characters By now you're already a fan of this series so what are you waiting for and just get it

Patrick Cronin needs to be replaced

he can't even be consistent with himself. He is changing voices and pronunciation within the series. Loa is not pronounced Iowa.

Great

Great series my only problem is my addiction to audible and this series has me going through this and other series to fast and is forcing me to wait for the next book which sends me to look for another series between books.

One of the best in the series!

This is how it all starts, the war with the other dimensions. I think this book gave us a preview of what's going to happen next, and it will be tragic, with lives lost. At the same time, it will be epic!

a rare slump for Mr Cronin and Mr Conroe

I don't know what really has happened. normally I rare james patrick cronin as one of the best narrators I've heard but in this instance he seemed all over the place.

I think he needs to re-listen to his own work to remember the voices for the characters he's portraying, the inconsistency was mind boggling, also spell check and pronunciation of certain names (like okwali, not okwari as it was read, he even went through the pronunciation in one of the earliest books).

with the story, there were interesting ideas and plot points but the story didn't seem to flow or to engage you like it's predecessors could do so well.

Love this series.

Nearly all of this series is utterly fantastic, apart from C.A.E.C.O best to avoid if you like the series.
Not many like this have held my attention for 16 books, a publishers pack might be nice though.
I could say a lot more but for potential listeners I could spoil it.
Just have faith that this book is as good as the others.
Highly recommended.
