Publisher's Summary

Beware what you wish for. You just might achieve it.

Kellik and his band have accomplished their goals, and now must reap their bitter rewards. Ruling Port Gloom is a vastly different enterprise from seeking to decapitate its government, and as the world begins to fall apart, he must decide what matters most: being the fair and just ruler, or surviving to see the dawn.

For the consequences of his sins are coming home to roost. A world destroying power is making its way to his city, and it will stop at nothing in its quest for vengeance. 

Warning and minor spoilers: This is an 18+ audiobook intended for mature listeners. It contains graphic sex, medieval violence, and nudity.

Ending on a high

Back one last time with your favourite bunch of rogues.
I love how this author consistently balances action, courtly intrigue, dark fantasy, meaningful relationships and character arcs, and story-driven explicit content.
And this book is no exception, your back once more with your favourite group of rogues in a story that explores the consequences of past misdeeds.
While there's a bittersweet element to how much of this is resolved, there is a solid conclusion to a rare series set in a world in which I hope one day we could return.

Thank you

Thanks Mike for writing this story. The series has been an incredible ride. I have little else to say but thanks.
Thank you Ryan for providing your voice and bringing all of these incredible characters to life. Every one has a depth I do a disservice into trying to sum.

For anyone else, I strongly recommend this series. It was the first I got on audible, and I my only regret is not having started this sooner.

What a Journey

From beginning to end this was an amazing journey, from the characters to the world I have nothing else to say but Bravo, with unforgettable characters, a story a mile long, and a well deserved conclusion this series will be one to remember for the ages.

An amazing conclusion

Without going into spoilers, this final book in the series does an amazing job of wrapping up everything. Once again, Mike Truk demonstrates why he is the most prosaic author in the genre. The fate of Port Gloom is concluded and Kellik and his women have the life they deserve.
