Publisher's Summary

In The War God's Own, Bahzell had managed to stop a war by convincing Baron Tellian, leader of the Sothoii, to "surrender" to him, the War God's champion. Now, he has journeyed to the Sothoii Wind Plain to oversee the parole he granted to Tellian and his men, to represent the Order of Tomanak, the War God, and to be an ambassador for the hradani. What's more, the flying coursers of the Sothoii have accepted Bahzell as a wind rider-the first hradani wind rider in history. And since the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell's ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. That combination of duties would have been enough to keep anyone busy-even a warrior prince like Bahzell-but additional complications are bubbling under the surface. The goddess Shigu, the Queen of Hell, is sowing dissension among the war maids of the Sothoii. The supporters of the deposed Sothoii noble who started the war are plotting to murder their new leige lord and frame Bahzell for the deed. Of course, those problems are all in a day's work for a champion of the War God. But what is Bahzell going to do about the fact that Baron Tellian's daughter, and heir to the realm, seems to be thinking that he is the only man - or hradani - for her?

Should have stopped.

All hail Bahzell Bloodyhands. Capable of killing demons with a look, kills armies with but a wave of his sword, and can't kick a stone without saving the world.
David you should kick yourself you dumbass.
It's one thing to save your main character with a devilishly good plan or luck, but Bahzell should have been killed a thousand times. I bet if you dropped a nuke on Bahzell he would still be living.
I know it is hard but you need something called tragedy. Tragedy you dag. Kill somebody off, emotion damn it. Make one of the good guys flawed beside making everyone a superman or batman.

Running the Gears

The reader is excellent, and like the author, only improves with each book in this series. Furthermore, all four books read like power shifting of a manual transmission; your head snaps back as each book accelerates past the previous novels; a very satisfying experience.

# 3 Good and I want more.

I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) If you want to know more about what I think, check out the review for War Maids Choice. Thank you.

a nice series...but

I really love the characters, the humor, and the bro-mance, but the constantly going back and forth to cover all the bad guys gets to be to much after a while, especially in book three and four. by book four i gave up and started fast forwarding through the chapters that deal with how the bad guys think and what they plan. once you have covered their actions and beliefs, there's not much more than endless repetition; gloating about how clever they are and later consternation when the good guys come in and whack them. once you've gone through the process once or twice you basically know what they are going to say and do, and by book three and four its a worn out formula. over all an enjoyable series and i think the narrator did a great job. not a great story, (though it could be if they cut out all those villein chapters), but well worth the listen.

I can't wait for the next book!

This is a strong continuation of the War God series. If you liked the previous two books, you will like this one as well. The themes are getting a little bit old at this point, but that is probably because I just listened to the previous two books. The world is getting to be more fleshed out and deeper in general, and I can't wait for the next book to come out sometime this year.

excellent good fun

As always, Weber paints his characters large with a vivid brush. Bahzell, Kaeritha and Brandark continue to delight and entertain!

Adventure + swords + evil gods = fun!

Another rollicking adventure in Weber's universe. well there were so many characters in this one that Nick Sullivan was working hard to have different voices for them all it was still superb. Swords and wizards and evil gods and the light triumphing over the dark!

One of my favorites in the series

My only slight complaint is I did NOT imagine the Sothoii having the...Polish? accent the narrator gives them. Still, he’s got a great voice for Bahzell and I enjoyed the whole thing throughly!
