Publisher's Summary

The Allied Lands are in mortal danger.

Three of the most powerful necromancers in the Blighted Lands have banded together into an unstoppable force, one capable of breaching the Craggy Mountains and laying waste to the lands beyond. If they cannot be stopped, they will tear the Allied Lands apart. Nothing will survive. And so Emily, the Necromancer’s Bane, is called upon once more to stand in defense of her adopted homeland and stop the necromancers in their tracks. Her presence may be the only thing keeping the Allied Lands from shattering as the war turns hot once again.

But there is a complication. Six years ago, Emily made a promise to the Unseelie Court, swearing to give them whatever they wanted in exchange for their help. Now, that promise has been called in. The Unseelie want her to travel into the Blighted Lands, despite the risk, and carry out a mission for them. And if she refuses, she’ll die.

Emily has no choice. Gathering an army, recruiting old friends and foes, and preparing new weapons, she sets out to challenge the necromancers in their lair, to complete the oath and win time for the Allied Land to prepare their defenses, to face the true horror of the Blighted Lands...and aware, all too aware, that the necromancers know she’s coming.

I guess I got too used to the previous reader.

Once you get used to the new voices it gets better. I hope the new reader gets better at immitating the voices the previous one drilled in our minds

Great!

When a series is twenty books long and just keeps getting better, you know you have a gem. I do wish this book were a bit longer. It could have used some more character interactions to balance out the near constant action after the introduction. Looking forward to the next book! I really wish Audible would release this series at the same time as it is published, since we are two books behind at this point.

Also, for long time listeners, there is a new narrator for this book. It's a bit jarring at first after listening to 19 books done by the same person and some words and names are pronounced differently. However once you get over the difference, the narrator does a wonderful job that I personally think is even better than the previous one.

This series is definitely worth all the credits I've spent on it!

So glad for the change in narrator!

The new Narrator is great and does all the voices very well. As for the story, the MC finally goes on the attack and I felt that she finally is moving forward in fixing the necromancer threat.

love this series

Great character development throughout and this one didnt disappoint. MC continues to grow and impress. The only mark against would be that after all these years she should stop wondering if killing the bad guys is bad or not.

Nothing I cant stand more than a narrator change.

Nothing irks me more than when a series changes the narrator mid way throughout a series, especially 20 books into the series...

Narrators

I don’t quite understand why you would want to switch narrators 20 books into a series?

this series is getting very interesting!

I was a little nervous of the new voice actress. I'm familiar with her work from other novels, but she did a fantastic job! by half way through the book I couldn't tell much differences from her character voices, compare to the previous voice actress. all in all a terrific book! highly recommend this book series as well as anything else written by Christopher G. Nuttall

it's not Emily's voice. Geat performance

She did a great job, but I can't get used to it. Gilbert is Emily's voice. it's so difficult in audiobooks to switch narrators.

Great addition to the series. With minor nit-picks

Again Chris has given us another great addition to Emily’s journey. There are only a few things that I have to critique. I miss Tavia as the narrator Saskia did a great job but I miss the voices that Tavia gave to the characters. I know how hard it can be but Emily should stop blaming herself for everything that happens around her, she is on her way to becoming one of the most powerful sorceress in her world, she needs to start believing In her power and her mind. If she can’t deal with the blame other people put on her maybe she needs to disappear for a while, maybe explore the unknown content that appears on the old maps. Anyway great story keep up the great work Chris.

Great Story as Always but not the same narrator

The narrator did a great job minus the multiple times she mixed up or edited incorrectly the names of characters. For instance multiple times someone did something to Emily the narrator said Emily did it to herself. It’s just not the same without the previous narrator. Emily sounds like she’s been smoking for 40 years at some points and other men sound almost identical. Also the since of urgency is gone as she narrates. With the previous narrator I felt like I was on the edge of my seat and with this one it sounds as if someone is telling me high action packed sequences in a monotone voice at times.
