Good narration, world, and characters.

I enjoyed listening. There are many interesting ideas involved, however I found myself yawning from the long sections of dialogue. I would have preferred more action, but it's a good story regardless.

Great Book. Greater TV Show?

Someone already posted this before, but I'd like to reitterate.
The episodic way in which this story was told, each with a minor plotline derived from rising action, climax, and falling action, all leading to a final culmination of epic proportions really lends itself to being perfectly suited for a Netflix tv series.
It is a great book that came out of left field. Cooper is a true wordsmith that draws you in to his fantastical realm and makes you really feel the character's exhaustion for combat.
It reminded me a little of the Night Angel Trilogy, save for the character being older and wiser, where he seeks redemption for a terrible past. Stories like this always draw me in. Cannot wait for book2!

Fun with Samurai John Wick doing Side Quests

I had so much fun with this Audible. I loved listening to the adventure of tired assassin Danzen helping out the villagers while bracing for his shady past to finally catch up with him. I cant wait for the next book. The Narrator was awesome I hope he does the entire series.

A Netflix Series In a Book

This book was awesome! Due to its episodic telling, i felt like i was hearing a series that i could stop and pick back up on whenever. The story is fantastic and so far one of my favorites now. Characters are unique and memorable, while the narration is clear and distinctly well done. All in all it was a great use of a credit and i look forward for the books to come.

ANOTHER H. COOPER BANGER!

I don't know how Harmon does it, but he never leaves me unsatisfied after I read/listen to one of his books.

kinda dumb

our hero has an affliction that makes his flying super sharp sword the most incompatible weapon. along with other not making sense parts i don't expect a fantasy book to be realistic by any means. I just like the plot and details to sorta fit if you squint your eyes a bit sorta. returned for credit!

It was good however.

So as the title suggests the book overall was good however it had the feeling of being forced in parts and a bit too predictable at times. As an example early on Harmon wrote in a special emphasis on the promissory note and then wouldn't you know it less than a chapter later the MC was robbed and there was no discernible reason why the MC kept the money in the mc bag instead of the pocket on his person considering the currency seems to be paper of some kind. It's not the end of the world but it was a bit of a letdown same with the few other parts that happened in the same fashion. Although as I said it was a good book and well worth a listen.

Great story! Harmon Cooper did it again. I just didn't like how podium didn't give him any credit at the end.

Really enjoyable

I quite liked this book the MC was quiet and powerful as you would expect but I also liked that you could see he had a lot of room to grow and the other characters were pretty cool as well after all everyone wants a best friend who is a fox

The only problems I had with this book would be that sometimes the characters would be told something or learn something and later on be surprised about that same information which was a bit weird also to the author please stop using the words "famed sword" please 🙏 there are many other words you can use. other then that I did find some decisions really weird like the MC is trying to save someone's life and needs info but will stop to have a chat and maybe a bite to eat but other that those small things the books great

Definitely worth a listen and will be getting the second book when it comes out the story has be intrigued

Brilliant Audio

This new series by Cooper with Narramore doing naration works wonders.
The characters are well crafted with quite a bit of empathyp for the listener to bond with the narrative.
I also liked how the story had a chance to come to a satisfying point giving this a good length to listen to for your cash without going into too many details that seem superflous but rather adds to the experience.
Narramore is very good as i would expect from one of my favourite narrators and he deals with the demon voice and female voices very well weaving the strange creatures into a believable world of interest.
My only issue is i don't have a book 2 or audio 2 yet to continue the dialogue.
