How predictable

it’s so by the books if it was a movie it would be like those B movies from the early 80s. The main female character has been kidnapped in every book because plot demands that Even though she supposed to be a bad ass elf with training Pretty much making her damsel in distress and On her wedding day no less.

My other problems with the book excluding the main characters and their woes is Omnipotent bad guys until they’re not and it feels abridged and I had a check multiple times it is not and that is a major problem because it feels like so much cut dialogue Was left out. When anyone gets into an argument it’s almost immediately over. take for instance the elf who interrupted the wedding he was dead set on killing the main character then or die trying but no more than 10 seconds after he was defeated He’s pretty much like “I guess we could be friends now” I think at that point my eyes rolled up inside my head.

I listen to this book for free I don’t know if I plan to listen to the third one but I am pretty much got the lay of the land and they’re not bad I’ve watched B movies before and will do so in the future.

A masterpiece is born

How often the second in a series falters and stumbles and fails to catch itself? How many "book 2's" have left readers disenchanted and restless, feeling the vacuum of time lost, expended on a book that was no more than a bridge between it's betters? These just complaints shall find no footing in the halls of those who are blessed by the gods to partake of this masterpiece which though second in order is second in no other way. In every way The Godling Chronicles is advanced in story, character development, and world building through the pages of this fine follow up and the anticipation for book 3 is made unbearable in it's wake.

Well done. Long have I waited for such a worthy tale and many lesser tales have I of late begun only to shortly disregard with disdain at their tepid mediocrity. Nothing tepid here. A god is born.

at least... not yet

This book is wonderful, I haven't stopped listening since the first book and all I can say is that I'm invested. I love the plot, the characters, everything, and Derek's voice is SPECTACULAR.
I also love that Brian uses the same phrase so often "at least, not yet"

It's not bad.

However, there are two issues that I have with the book. Firstly, the author doesn't describe the world with enough detail. Whenever there are descriptions, they are glossed over pretty quickly. This frustratingly prevents me from having a clear mental picture of the world and what it should look like.

- *****spoiler alert below***** -

Secondly, I don't like how the elves are this incredibly supernatural race that have unrealistic abilities. How could an entire race of powerful beings be defeated by a normal human race with no supernatural abilities, even with "help." It just doesn't make any sense to me. Armed with these supernatural abilities, they should be able to easily dominate any other creature/race in the whole world with ease. The logic just isn't there.

"The rest of the evening was uneventful..."

The title pretty much sums up this book. It's something the author seems to repeat a lot. I really wanted to like it. I listened to the first one and made it through the second one, but the whole thing just lacks weight. The battle scenes, which I keep waiting for them to be grand and descriptive are boring at best. The rest of the book is forgetful and the characters lack depth and growth. I recommend the author to read some of Joe Abercrombie's novels to see how to properly explain a battle scene.

Meh

Game of thrones meets lord of the rings and a boy scout troop playing d&d on a side quest. Not enough character development to make me care what happened to them.

If you like ‘The name of the wind’..

After finishing the name of the wind I was searching for another epic adventure- AND FOUND IT! It took me a little while to settle into the new rhythm but am hooked, definitely worth the read!
