Publisher's Summary

Long months have passed since Siris and the God King, enemies betrayed together, were left to rot in the prison at the Vault of Tears. Their true enemy - the Worker of Secrets, creator of the Infinity Blade itself - now reigns.

Upon finally obtaining freedom, Siris must unravel plots that seem to make no sense, lead a rebellion with no direction, and fight against the division within his very heart. The secrets unraveled will dig backward in time toward the origins of the deathless and the true nature of the world itself....

From number one best-selling author Brandon Sanderson and ChAIR entertainment, creators of the blockbuster Infinity Blade video game series, comes the second novel in the epic Infinity Blade saga.

This latest tale delves deeper into the fantastical world of Infinity Blade, a world of mystery and intrigue where magic and technology are indistinguishable and even life and death are not as they seem.

meh

Both Infinity blade novellas seemed a bit flat to me. Nothing seemed to happen and I didn't care about any of the characters. I know it's hard to do much in such a tight format, but compared with something like shadows for silence in the forests if hell, this one falls pretty flat.

cliffhanger & no sequel

it ends with an unfinished story. I enjoy brandon sanderson but why bother writing 2 books and not a 3rd to explain the end.

Not as good as other Brandon Sanderson books

I have read nearly every Brandon Sanderson book available except the wheel of time. This is not a favorite book of mine. It’s very dark, a little disjointed, and a little hard to follow. It may be because of the source material he was trying to fit the story into. It finally comes together by the end of the book and I may actually read the second one now. But the first 2/3 of the book, I pondered returning it to audible and getting my money back.

cool story very interesting plot

Very interesting how it all came together I think there is a lot of room for the story to expand and grow. I really hope that there is another story that we can listen to to figure out what happens next on the protagonist journey. The narration and voice talent was really effective for this book. I think the accents were well done. The different voices were well done and the arrogance of some of the characters... the swagger and personality was really solid. Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors and I think he is so diverse in his storytelling and is really a great Author who is able to create unique and really deep characters that are able to leap off the page and jump into our hearts

great short story, unfinished

the story is really part of a game series with the short stories acting as extra content. these books are in the middle of the story. to get the rest you need to play the games. perhaps there is a let's play on YouTube.

Confused in the start

Apparently you need to have played the video game to understand the beginning. Don’t give up if you’re confused. It takes time but by the end you’ll understand what it all means. Not as good as the first but still Sanderson.

Way too short!

Lol Brandon Sanderson you are the best. Review? No. If it has Brandon Sanderson on the cover , you won’t be disappointed. No exception to that rule here. Really good story, I want more. Ty

Easy read, very enjoyable!

Narration was pleasant to hear. For a novel based on a game it had a great story. Was hoping for a final ending and not something that seems to lead to a (non existent) next book

I wish there was more

I think Brandon Sanderson’ writing may have outshined the source material just a little bit.

Disappointed- though it may mean more to gamers

Big caveat - I am not a gamer. If you are, and you play Infinity Blade, then perhaps take my review with a pinch of salt.

Jury is out with this one. It's still a good story, but there are just too many gaps for me. It's as if the skeleton of the plot has been built, but then just random clumps of muscle and detail attached, and the listener is meant to fill in the blanks. It lurched a little too much for my liking. Perhaps I'm just used to Sanderson's normal detail, and clever building of characters and plots - and although this had both good characters and a great plot, it was just too half-baked, without any of the good bits in between. I haven't got around to playing the games, and if I'm being honest, I'm very unlikely to ever do so, and that I think is the main problem here.

The following is taken from Brandon Sanderson's website:

"To get the whole story, play the games and read the novellas in this order:
Infinity Blade
Infinity Blade: Awakening
Infinity Blade II
Infinity Blade: Redemption
Infinity Blade III
However, the novellas will catch you up to speed if you haven’t played the games, so don’t worry about being lost."

I have only read the Novellas, and although I am not lost, I'm not enjoying it nearly as much as I normally do anything by Sanderson.... And it would appear that I am not even going to know how it ends as it looks as though I need to play the last game to work that bit out?

3 stars because it's still Brandon Sanderson and even a gappy novella is still good - but I've I've just come to expect more from a Sanderson novel.

Looking forward to reading a review by someone who has also played the games....Perhaps if it's really good, I will revisit in the context of the games too. Until then, I'm relegating these to the "don't revisit" pile.
