Publisher's Summary

Putting the Grand Quest behind them, the party rides onward in search of answers. Between one member's unexpected new condition and the mysteries of the Bridge, their only hope appears to be gaining entrance to Lumal, said to hold the greatest collection of knowledge in all the kingdoms.   

But when a curious path appears in a seemingly uninhabited forest, the party finds themselves in a place set apart from the kingdoms, and the world at large: a hidden hamlet, filled by unusual people, all of whom have long histories of their own.   

Soon sealed inside the town by unseen forces, the former NPCs will have to uncover what brought them there - and who is keeping them trapped - while there's still time to fight back. Because something more is brewing, something involving the very gods themselves. With unknown enemies to the front and supposed allies at their rear, the party will need more than their usual tricks if they hope to see the outside world once more.

Nice continuation of the adventure

Nice continuation of the story, though I'd hoped to see more of the real life players who had no significant role this time.

Audio sounds like it was recorded with a tin can, unfortunately, and some pronunciation has changed from the previous books which I found distracting.

So many answers! So many new questions! So good!

If you are considering book 4 of the Spells, Swords, & Stealth Series, I'm going to assume that you already have read books 1-3 and say that you are in for a treat with book 4. Whereas other series may give you questions that are never answered until the very last book, Drew answers many of the questions that have been asked in the previous 3 books while keeping enough behind the screen and introducing logical next steps to eagerly await the next book.
Of course, the highlight of this book is the highlight of Drew Hayes as an author, his incredible character development. These are real characters fleshed out in incredible ways. While it may seem strange to have strong emotional ties with a half-orc or a goblin, by book 4 I was fully invested in these characters and have a deep friendship with them. Their joys and trials are gripping. I couldn't stop listening.
If you like fantasy, this is for you. If you've ever played a tabletop role playing game, this is for you. If you just want a great story read by a talented narrator who keeps the same voices over an entire series, this is for you. Basically, this story is for you. Get it.

Great expansion of the SS&S world

This book was just released, and I'm already itching for the next installment. It really grows the overall world of the series, and expands how it interacts with "our" world.

Siege Tactics

Fantastic, enthralling read. Deep characters that the reader truly appreciate and care about. One of the best if not the best in the series.

The campaign continues

Very good continuation of the story. It was a little slow but no good campaign can be high speed all the time.

Spectacular!

Love the way that this series bring a new dynamic to table top RPG. The way that two party experience the world is unique and captivating. Transition between the two realities are well thought out in my opion.

A bit of a filler

Enjoyable but definitely seemed that it was more of a filler book than the others. The Timiscore sub plot is very good though!

Feels like a bloated middle book for a sequel

The book feels like an in-between book for a main event which is likely to follow into the next book.
However, new characters are interesting which I wish were discussed more.
The performance is as always with NPC series amazing!

Drew Hayes delivers on the story...
Roger Wayne hits every voice just as we remember them...
