Not engaging

The series really seems to be aimed at teens, not adults. Tried sticking with it but the patience was not rewarded. Well read for what it was

LOVED this series!!

I normally can't be bothered writing reviews but I felt I needed to for this series. I found the first book by chance and was hooked within the first hour. I was a little frustrated initially at the book finishing and then having almost short stories in the postludes but when I finished them, I LOVED it. I love the depth it added to the characters and as the books proceeded, I appreciated the postludes even more. This final book was EPIC! it was a fantastic wrap up and conclusion to an epic tale...there was even tears! thanks for an awesome tale narrated extremely well. HIGHLY recommended!

The Series

I enjoyed the whole series very much. I don't think rating each book does the series justice. Each book flows from the one before very easily without the awkward pause some series cause when a new chapter (book ) is added

Beautiful Series

David did an amazing job with the characters and the story. I could not stop listening. Once I started the first book - Fatemarked- I was hooked. I hope beyond all hope HBO or some network would may a tv series of it!

Lost a star for excessive use of “hither and thither”

Derek Perkins is brilliant! I love his work and how he clearly delineated each characters voice and vocal mannerisms. The story was also quite enjoyable. It had some slow parts but all stories do. Biggest drawback for me was as noted in the title. It might work well in written form, but spoken word it just yanked me out of the moment every time. Otherwise I really enjoyed it. I greatly liked the religious depths that were looked at.

intense

the characters the author has created and the performer has brought to life you wish it wouldn't end they seem so lifelike it's hard to put down the action is intense and there are funny moments that actually make you laugh out loud and tearful as well

Sir Christiff Metts

I have seen many different characters in stories, but none compare to this Knight. Yes I thought all of these characters were amazing. Sir Metts is above and beyond my expectations. Great story, plot and a mornful, but heroic ending. Thanks for the fun of literature.

A wonderful book and series

The entire series of books was a superb listen and this book was a fantastic end to it all A book filled with amazing characters, exciting beasts and evil needing to be overcome, What was just as wonderful was the inspiration the book brought that people can change, become better and make the world better for everyone in it. The author did an amazing job and Derek Perkins who brought this book series to life really made it a worthy listen. Will I listen to this series again, a resounding YES.

He does it again - thanks David ;.)

This is page by page adventure and surprises - Thank you David for writing such an amazing story which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The concept is strong
The character development is strong - e.g. you find yourself liking characters that you shouldn't
The narration is really good - Derek does a good job at a female voice and making it credible
You look and think 22 hours wow that's long, but it's so good it feels like 5 minutes! He also gives you back stories at the end which give you further insight into the characters (he could have done these as flashbacks just as well)
never mind the book LOVED THIS SERIES

The length of the books gives such value for money & the brilliance of it doesn't dwindle off - as strong as the first page from book one.

Amazing

Gripping from the first book to the last, great opportunity for a tv show or film. The series is like a mix of Game of thrones' power struggles and Lord of the rings adventures. More please Mr Estes. Also another great performance by Derek Perkins.
