Publisher's Summary

After 10 years at war, Jev Dharrow looks forward to hanging up his sword, relaxing with a cool mug of ale, and forgetting that the love of his life married another man while he was gone. But when his ship sails into port, a beautiful woman wearing the garb of an inquisitor from one of the religious orders waits to arrest him. 

His crime? He’s accused of stealing an ancient artifact with the power to start another war. Jev would gladly hand over the artifact to stop more suffering, but he has no idea where it is or even what it looks like. The inquisitor woman definitely has the wrong person. 

Inquisitor Zenia Cham grew up with nothing, but she has distinguished herself as one of the most capable law enforcers in the city, and she’s next in line to become archmage of the temple. All she has to do is find the Eye of Truth, and her superiors are certain Jev has it. 

He tries to charm her with his twinkling eyes and easy smile, but she’s not letting any man get between her and her dreams. Especially not a thief. 

If Jev can’t convince Zenia they’re on the same side, find the artifact, and clear his name, his homecoming will turn into a jail sentence. Or worse.

Definitely an Author I'll be adding to my library

This had been a truly great book to listen to. The story had been compelling and the characters had been likeable and felt flawless within the world. I will have to be sure to add more books by this author and look for others with the same Narrator. The narrator had been phenomenal.

A great start to a new series

I received the audiobook for free as a Patreon supporter, but I would have purchased it if it wasn't a reward and my reviews are always honest. I also read the first 10 chapters on Lindsay's blog, but I think the audiobook brings the characters to life and I'd highly recommend "reading" it that way.

The book started slowly for me and that's the reason for 4 stars rather than more. At first, I did not like the female lead, Zenia. Once Lindsay hit her stride though, I fell in love with the two main characters and the story. I'm very excited for the next book which will be out soon.

GOOD START.

Most enjoyable. Good start to a new series. I like Jev Zinder Darrow's personality. Very steady and very sensible. Zinnia is excellent too. Both main characters are very likeable. Action wise not bad but I hope there will be more "zest" to it. The narration/performance is good. Vivienne Leheny brings the characters go life with the different voices. Lindsay Buroker is a very talented writer and I love her books.

Okay book and barely okay narration..

I have no idea if I liked this book or not. It was interesting, about a relic that was stolen and all that happened to find it.

I liked Jev and Zenia but not as a couple. I didn’t feel any kind of chemistry at all between them. So, if the author was trying to write a romance she failed. I’m not sure I’d want to go forward with this series.

There was nothing even resembling romance! AND no swearing to speak of, what was supposed to be swearing was just silly, “By the Founders,” “Four Founders, it was dark in these mangroves,” By the pointed teeth of the Founders,” maybe not silly as much as stupid.

As to the narration: Vivienne Leheny was just okay for me. Her voices were fine but sometimes she was sooo dramatic and other times she read like a robot. She wasn’t consistent.

loved it

Lindsay Buroker writes the most likable characters. This book reminded me of the Dragon Age video game series in the best way, with elements of steampunk. I like how lighthearted it was but hope the next one includes some grit. Overall really amazing.

A lightweight

This the least of Lindsay Burokers books and I struggled to stay focused when listening to it.
It is a formula without the depth of character or plot that is needed to make a book captivating.
I will not be buying the next books in the series.
A true let down

Good cop Bad cop

This book is somewhat reminiscent of a female and male detective working a case. I can't' say that it kept my interest from beginning to end but I believe it has promise.

Another winner from Buroker

What a great first book of a new series! It did take me a couple of chapters to really get into it, and then I was hooked. Lindsay does an excellent job with character development and scene setting. The story moves along quickly. The main characters are likable, honorable, loyal, and have senses of humor and wit. As usual in her stories, the secondary characters are also fully developed and form a nice band of allies working towards the same goal. I went straight into the second book of the series when I finished this one. 💕

Tiresome

I really struggled to get through this book. I’d just finished listening to this author’s Death Before Dragons series which was excellent, and got this book hoping I could capture some of the same feeling with another one of her books. However, the main characters were either lacklustre or utterly annoying (in the case of the heroine), and the plot was just daft. Absolutely zero chemistry in the developing relationship either. What a disappointment.

A Little Slow

This is a (future?) love story between Jev Dharrow, a soldier back from the war with both physical/emotional scars and Zenia, a paranoid Inquisitor who arrives to arrest him straight off the boat on his return accusing him of stealing an artifact. Jev is an easy going, witty and handsome man, of course, (they all are) who takes everything in his stride.

Not quite sure how this will go. It seems a little slow, but I will try Book 2 to see if it picks up.

Underwhelmed

underwhelmed by the book, unlike LBs Fallen Empire, all of her other lead male characters seem timid, even veteran soldier who fought in the war for 10 years. I really like the narrator, she did a fantastic job, too bad the characters didn't live up to her level. The male lead is not very smart for someone who was the Captain of an intelligence company.

Not the quality of older works

I loved the books of the forgoten ages world, and other of Linsays older books, but the quality have falen over time, I am sad to say.

The character depth is not presset, and the story could have been so much more. To many characters introdused, and newer seen again.
Even if it is to sett up a world for a series, this does nor live up too the quality I would expect from Linsay Buroker

good fun story

The story is fun but I felt it started a bit slow. Seems like a good start to the series.
