The World Has Fallen Into Ruin. Myth and Legend Have Proven True. Monsters Have Returned to Illian. 

Orcs, an ancient fiend thought lost to history, have risen from The Under Realm. Their hunger for total dominance has plunged Illian into war, pushing the survivors to Namdhor, the last refuge of man at the top of the world.

For those who stand up to this foe, they do so in darkness. Ash clouds smother the skies, blocking out the sun as the orcs rampage across the land.

Behind it all, manipulating from the shadows, The Black Hand fuels the war on both sides. The Crow, the one who was promised, has seen the future and works in the depths of The Bastion to forge a new weapon, a weapon that can stand against the dark at all costs.

Gideon Thorn is adrift, his order decimated, and his oath to protect the realm meaningless. The Master Dragorn faces his greatest test yet, balancing his duty to the people and his duty to his order.

Inara Galfrey has a choice to make as the realm’s darkest hour approaches. Malliath and Asher cannot be ignored but holding fast to her courage could save the world. It could also spell her end.

Doran Heavybelly finds himself at the throne of his father. There are realms of hell he would rather visit than the halls of his ancestors. Shackled and bound, however, the dwarf has no choice but to face his past....

just a little short.

good story but the all the books in the series are a little short, there's better value for money in other series. I don't get a month out of it and have to buy more credits

Not a book for these times. Sadistic main characte

This book is putting me into a depression with it's sadistic main character of the Crow. I've found the series now during the COVID-19 pandemic and I've loved the series until now. This book is pushing me over the edge. I hate the fact that it's placing me in a depression. I don't know if I'll be able to finish it. The vile, sadistic character of the Crow is more than I can handle. I can't punish the narrator as all he's doing is reading the story and dialog, so I will reward him with a good review, but the book is vile. I can't recommend this book, I can't ever remember when I encountered a character this horrid managing to destroy a book for me. I guess some will take this as a high recommendation but sadism is not something I appreciate at any point. The Crow is a sadist and he's forcing another character to be the masochist against his will. That relationship in normally based upon a willing relationship. This is not willing

A little Perverse...

Every chapter I was forced to listen to the Crow express his almost gross obsession with Alijah, in form of “lessons” made it that much harder to look forward to the next installment of the series.

I was lost until the middle, the time lapses 🤢

I enjoyed the first 3 books, but this one could have been great if we knew the new characters.

Brand is the worst

I truly don't get the appeal. His diction is dreadful. His character voices are terribly limited- I can't tell one from another, About the best he can offer is a slightly higher pitch for female characters, but that's it. And there is not vocal inflection when the description of a voice is, for example, "Low and guttural" ... he just blows through the line as if that descriptive doesn't matter.

I seriously don't get the appeal. The story here is really better and would be much improved with someone better at narration. I could literally name about 10 or 15 male narrators who would fit the bill better than Brand. I see something he's narrating now and I pass it by, and that annoys me. But I don't want to waste money on a product I KNOW will irritate me to no end.

Mr. Quaintrell's story deserves better than this.

Very Disappointing

Huge fan of the series until this book. Most of the main characters don't stay true to who they were before. They continually take the easiest path out bending to the will of the villains without really fighting back. People who made smart choices in previous books suddenly just act like mindless idiots that are unable to think under pressure. the training sessions with the Crow are just horrible in every way and not enjoyable to listen to. Painful to listen to and not anywhere close to the level of the previous books.

like it.

the first three books were amazing. the next part in the series (4 books in) are pretty good. the whole future seeing stuff just has something to it I don't find as enjoyable. hopefully some payoff is close at hand with the character but it seems like he's been stuck for like 2 whole books and it's a bit of a drag. I have hope I will be happy with the ending just have to finish. all in all one of the better series I've listened to so far

A true work of brilliance you can’t help but get hooked on

I started this maybe a year a two ago with the first books about Asher but once I realized there were more I had to start the next part of the story. I will honestly say That depending on how quickly I finish this book I don’t think I’ll be able to wait for my credits to refresh.

I like the story but it needs to be edited

as with all of this author's books the reading sounds like it's coming off of a first draft there are issues with characters names being replaced there are times when a dwarf is called an elf and other things of that nature that take away from what is overall a very compelling yet dark story.

Disappointed

I mainly listen to audiobooks when I go to bed on sleep timer for 30 minutes unless it’s a really great story and I listen at work ( ear buds) . I always rewind to the obvious point I fell asleep and go again . I found the endless names very tedious and felt the story has lost its way to the point I wasn’t bothering to rewind in the previous book of this story and again in this one . I’ve always finished a set of books however long but won’t be buying anymore of this set .

Cannot wait for the next book

Philip goes from stride to stride with book adding more twists and turns to the story while Steven brings each character to life. on more than one occasion I had goosebumps when threads from the previous books were picked up. cannot wait for the next book!

Another great read in the series.

Can't wait for #3 to come out on audible.

Really enjoying this series. Couldn't work out how SQ could take the original trilogy any further, as it was all quite neat. But I think this 2nd trilogy is even better than the first.
