Publisher's Summary

This set includes all three books in AC Cobble's Cartographer Series. A pair of unlikely investigators walk a dangerous path into the past, uncovering secrets best left alone in this dark, fantasy thriller. 

The fate of empire is to crumble from within. 

A heinous murder in a small village reveals a terrible truth. Sorcery, once thought dead in Enhover, is not. Evidence of an occult ritual and human sacrifice proves that dark power has been called upon again. Twisting threads of clues lead across the known world to the end of a vast empire, and then, the trail returns home. 

Duke Oliver Wellesley, son of the king, cartographer, and adventurer, has better things to do than investigate a murder in a sleepy fishing hamlet. For Crown and Company, though, he goes where he’s told. As the investigation leads to deeper and darker places, he’ll be forced to confront the horrific spectres rising from the shadows of his past. When faced with the truth, will he sacrifice what is necessary to survive? 

Samantha serves a Church that claims to no longer need her skills. She’s apprenticed to a priest-assassin that no one knows. Driven by a mad prophecy, her mentor has prepared her for a battle with ultimate darkness, except, sorcery is dead. When all is at stake, can she call upon an arcane craft the rest of the world has forgotten? 

The fate of empire is to crumble from within. Do not ask when, ask who.

Kind of a cluttered story

This series was just all over the place. Time continuity issues abound! The main characters were pretty flat with no growth and relationships were all very superficial. Just not very appealing for me. It was hard to keep interest in the story with all the changes in POV, especially when the point of view is a character who dies. Also, why is it so difficult to give the villain a reason for villainy? It’s as if the villain of this story is so just to have an antagonist. What’s the purpose of killing off entire populations that you’re supposed to be wanting to rule? Ah well, I’m no writer so my opinion shouldn’t be taken into consideration. Sorry A. C. Cobble, this just ain’t me cuppa tea.

Good Start, but then an Extreme Drag

I made it about halfway through this complete series before I realized I had no motivation to continue the story. This listening experience started out well; the voice acting is very good, and there was an imaginative world plus a sorcery-driven murder mystery.

Sure, the people in this world were probably descended from bunnies since every character that has a name in the series is mindlessly horny all the time, but at least there was a good mystery to catch my interest. After the initial mystery was concluded fairly early on, though, the story became staler and the bunny-people became less believable with less interesting (and mostly predictable) things to do.

I hung on through the first book and tried the second, where again it started kind of interesting and then things started dragging, followed by some action that made little sense. I could no longer suspend my disbelief and was fed up with the strangely acting bunny-people and their lack of terribly interesting things to do. I exchanged the book.

A bit lewd

First three characters, all introduced during sexual situations. I’m not the most prudish person out there, but it did become kind of predictable. Not every book needs to emulate an hbo series.

Incredibly creative

I thoroughly enjoyed this series and Simon Vance is perfect for its content. The best part is, though a fantasy, it is also a mystery. The plot lines are intricate and the surprises delightful. I really, really want an air ship!

Worth it!

My husband and I both spent the credit to listen to this trilogy. Engaging and well written. The narrator did a great job. Well worth the time.

Great story !!! Sex scenes are rated R but not XXX

Some of the comments on this book from other people make it sound that see scenes are graphic or something. They are NOT , the author does not describe see scenes but does describe people being intimate. Kissing and touching but hardly graphic. I say this bc when deciding whether to listen to this book or not , I hesitated bc people said there was a lot of see scenes . I'm ok with see if it is used to develop characters and there relationships and to describe the mentality of characters but if I wanted porn I'd watch it. So when I listened to this and heard what others made sound graphic, it bothered me some.
I think this is a great story and the author put a lot of thought into make the reader care about the characters. What I consider makes a great book is if at the end you miss your friends, the characters, that's a good book. If you agree then spend your credit. It's worth it.

Great mystery lost in melodrama

I really enjoyed the lighthearted Benjamin Ashwood series. It was fun and compelling. This story has a more adult-focused and sexual identity that I feel only acts as a distraction. I had to put it down after 10 hours.
