Publisher's Summary

 Sacred Valley has been saved...at least, what’s left of it.

With his home finally secure, Lindon delves deep into the ancient labyrinth, seeking long-lost Soulsmithing knowledge and the secret to destroying the Dreadgods. Monarchs plot against him and against each other, unaware of the threats gathering in realms beyond.

Far above Lindon and the Monarchs and the Dreadgods, another war is waged. Suriel and the Abidan clash against the Mad King and his forces in a battle for the fate of many worlds.

And if it is lost, Cradle will be destroyed.

My book of the year

The build up in these books is awesome. I could feel the twist coming but was still excited for how it was going to play out. Props to the author for his foreshadowing skills. Definitely my book of the year

Fantastic recovery

I was a little disappointed by the previous installment of this series it felt unfinished and rushed. Reaper is a great recovery for one of my favourite series. Definitely pick this up, great addition to the Cradle series.

Well done and thank you!

There's action, story and character development in the other books but this tops them all. I'm gonna start listening to it again in a moment.

Amazing!

As with all books in this series Will Wight did an absolutely stellar job writing this one. I don’t even have to say anything about the narrator, Travis Baldree is my all time favorite and as usual killed it. Overall 5 stars all around, my only complaint(because it’s so good) is I wish the audiobook was longer!!

Loved it! When is the next book in the series coming out?!!

I absolutely loved this book, as I do all the other books in this series. When I can’t decide on what to listen to, I listen to these. The characters are great, you either love them & want them to win/succeed or you hate them & you want them to be destroyed. Also, there are times in this book I found myself holding my breath wondering how it was going to turn out. What I also love about the book (and the others) is there is a lot of humor at the right times!

I’m not going to give any spoilers but there is one part towards the end where I sat straight up and shouted “I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT!!” I was laughing and crying because now you understand the journey - you understand why he did what he did. And how much he has grown to love those around him. Including Little Blue & Orthos.

Mr. Wight has a marvelous talent of bringing the characters to life on paper but Mr. Baldree brings them to life with his voice. He keeps the same voices from book to book, never over dramatizes - he’s about as perfect of a narrater you will ever listen to. The scene I mentioned earlier - how Travis portrays the emotions of what everyone was feeling was incredible.

As long as Mr. Baldree is narrating this series, I’ll keep buying them.

Keep them coming Mr. Wight!! I am very much looking forward to the next one!! Thank you for such a great series!! Eithan is my favorite character!
God Bless! S

Keeps Getting Better.

I didn't like the last one so much, but in general this series gets better with each new release. I love that it answers a lot of questions from the previous books, but still leaves some unanswered while also asking just enough more to keep you excited for the next one.

Everything I wanted it to be and more

This book has everything you expect it to and want it to have yet also enough yo have me yearning for what is to come next. Without trying to give too much away, I feel like this has started the new saga of the cradle series and I for one can not wait to hear it unfold!!👏

good story/great twist

I wasn't expecting that at the end, it certainly explains a lot and I'd be interested in going back to the beginning to see how much foreshadowing there was.

The book itself comes in 3 parts like all good novels. the later was my favourite pretty much it was a classic dungeon dive but the preparations and beginning of the book were great too as it helped to flesh some stuff out that needed some time and also start to introduce some side character development I had been craving.

all in all a great read/listen.

Also, Travis, you da man!!

Ok but colorless

It to much about space and I still hate the constant switch of POV. Anticlimactic how the dread gods exists. Might read the next book, but only if I have nothing else to read.
