Publisher's Summary

War is hell, especially when you’re surrounded by enemies.

With the king of Garenland dead and the people eager for revenge, Otto and Wolfric turn their sights north to Garenland’s ancient enemy Straken.

The Northern Army marches into enemy territory, while back in the capital, Otto rushes to train as many war wizards as he can.

Outside forces refuse to leave them alone, and Otto is forced to deal with an ever-growing array of foes, unreliable allies, and an enemy that will do anything to see Garenland fall.

Can Otto overcome threats, both internal and external, to bring the war to a victorious close?

7 hour audiobooks by established authors are insulting.

The audiobook itself was fine. Not a masterpiece, just a decent continuation of the story. However this book and the next book are both just slightly over 7 hours long. Which from an established author like Wisher is unacceptable in my opinion.

It’s not like there was a significant interval between the release of this book and the next one. And they put it out because fans were dying for it. Plenty of much less well established authors are doing the decent thing and releasing double installments for their audiobook releases. This is just a cash grab by the publishers.

I know I’m not the only audible listener who is sick of authors like Eric Ugland and others who are releasing 7-8 hour audiobooks on an almost monthly basis. It’s bad enough that they are releasing their books in short installments with seemingly arbitrary beginnings and endings instead of actually taking the time to plot their stories into actual books, but they’re also diluting the value of our credits and our membership fees.

Meanwhile other authors are releasing omnibus versions that are 30+ hours long for a single credit, or ya know, releasing 12-16 hour long books that actually start and stop based on the story structure rather than dialing them in at that 7-9 hour length that they believe is just long enough to get away with.

From now on I’m one-starring any audiobooks that are released in this piece-meal manner as a matter of course. I encourage other Audible listeners to join me.

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely

!Possible spoilers! Depending on perspective!

I just finished the 2nd book of this series. The first book I enjoyed thoroughly I thought it was going to be about a man who stays humble even after gaining power. Which is what was happening 3/4(?) of the way through the first book before what his wife did to him. After that it went down hill and at the end of the 1st book after the confrontation with his wife I thought he would get better in the 2nd book.

Now that I have finished the 2nd book, I don't think I will continue with the series. Other reviews mention dark content and an anti-hero perspective which is why I gave the series a try. I don't think there is dark content in this book or maybe I am used to reading much darker books so my perspective is off from what the general public might feel. I also disagree with him being an anti-hero, for as the 2nd book continued I get more of an origin story for a villain (due to some possible forshadowing) . Which isn't what I was looking for when picking up this book.

I also want to mention that it seems a little much to me that his wife "betraying" him to fuel this personality change is a little much. The MC seemed intelligent enough to let it go after his pay back, since he admits he didn't want the marriage either. He gave it a shot with little intentions anyway, it failed and for some reason it made his whole personality change. Just seemed a little reaching to make a humble guy become a villian.

P.S Again good book, just not what I was looking for at this time. If I want to read about a villian ill most likely pick this series back up.

good book

This is a great book to the series building on the first, Ilove how the MC is maturing into his own men and not a annoying brat.

An easy recommendation

I really do enjoy the fact that the main character isn’t a “good guy@ and the fact the book shows how honor can be a detriment. The characters do act like people and does include leaps of logic and emotional reasoning. The biggest problem with this book is sometimes the dialog is stiff or stilted.

Solid story

I like the story. There is plenty of adventure and the progression is believable. Immersion is solid and makes for a lot of fun for fans for magic. I didn't hear the stutters or gaps like some of the reviews claimed. It is a good story and I have heard every book in this series so enjoy. I await the next book to see what happens.

Good Series

The first book started off slow building the background. But once built the storyline, characters and narration was great.
