Publisher's Summary

As a kingdom teeters on the brink of war, two witch hunters fight to stop a warlock before he unleashes an ancient evil.

For centuries, the Argolian Order has protected the mortal vale from the dark forces of the Other Side. Now the barrier between worlds is breaking down, and two monks must survive a civil war before they can stop the wizard responsible.

When Adelko is assigned to legendary exorcist and witch hunter Horskram, he expects an adventurous life. Death by adventure isn’t what he had in mind - but it seems the only outcome when they learn of a sorcerous theft that threatens the world.

The thief wants to silence them - permanently. And so, Horskram and Adelko flee from one danger to another as the Jarl of Thule leads a rebel army against the King of Northalde, plunging the realm into conflict.

And on the Other Side, demonkind reawakens....

A little less than OK

The author had a good idea and I generally liked the dark fantasy tones. However, the story was slow and the author skipped around a great deal when he didn't need to. I was bored.

Absolutely boring.

Eventually decided to stop listening at chapter 27 when I had to go back several chapters for the ....th time in an attempt to try and pick up the story line.

Its okay

Nothing spectacular about this one. I started and stopped this book several times during the past two months. There are lots of characters, lots of foolish decisions and plot conveniences. I have listened to other books where you can ignore these items, but this book seemed to drone on. I lost track of the princes, the princesses, the warriors, etc...I suppose some of the blame would fall on the reader...maybe it was a mismatch between the reader and the story.

Can I recommend? Eh. I have listened to worse.

Not sure about this one

Some of the characters and history seemed totally irrelevant and I couldn't wait for some parts to be finished so I could find out what the three 'main' characters were up to. I almost gave up on this book a couple of times and don't think I will get the sequel although I liked the characters mentioned before.
I get what the author was trying to do in letting you know the background etc but I was bored for a lot of this book.
