Publisher's Summary

War has erupted in the Banished Lands as the race for power intensifies.

Corban flees his homeland searching for peace, but he soon discovers that there is no haven in the west as the agents of Rhin and roaming bands of giants hound his every step.

Veradis leaves the battleground and rushes to his King's side. But he has witnessed both combat and betrayal and his duty weighs heavily upon him.

Maquin seeks only revenge, but pirate slavers and the brutal world of pit-fighting stand in his way.

Nathair becomes embroiled in the wars of the west as Queen Rhin marches against King Owain. The need to find the cauldron of the giants drives him on.

Sides are chosen and oaths will be fulfilled or broken in a land where hell has broken loose.

Mindboggling Change of Narrator from Original

Not sure why they would change and also redo the Original narration by one of the best Narrators in the business, John Keating. It's a great story with a mediocre narrator. It's unfortunate. I feel like Damian put some effort into mumbling through this and to make an excellent story boring. In any case, if you got the original Malice with Keating, I recommend you just get the book and read it so you are not so disappointed.

So good

This second addition to the series adds new viewpoints and advances the main plot line considerably. It also has one of my favorite scenes, involving Maquin. No spoilers though, you’ll have to read it to know what I’m talking about. Even better the second time around. Narrator is great!

Enjoyable Medieval European Fantasy

If you were satisfied with ’Malice’ then you will love this edition. Action packed and this story tows the line between grounded and fantastical very well.

Excellent series and excellent narrator

’ve read all four book in the series and was sad to see it end. I felt like the characters were real- my friends, my fellow warriors. Over the course of the series, the characters you love the most evolve and become a part of you. The characters you hate become more detestable, and you just have to see what happens next. I could not stop listening. The actor who narrated the series is talented. I could tell which character was speaking based on his accents. And he didn’t overdo the female characters. His narration brought the books to life. I look forward to the next series by Gwynne.

A pretty good book 2 but starts to drag

Loved book one. It was amazing. Book 2 however is a bit of of bummer. All the “good guys/girls” are kidnapped and/or on the losing end of every encounter. Like the whole book is nothing but the baddies winning each chapter and each event and by the end it was like can our heroes catch even one break?
The main story is a long chase which by the end was starting to drag. I’m hoping Book 3 is much better,
The narration by Mr Lynch is spectacular and kept me engaged even though the story began to get tedious. May have also been a few too many battle scenes as well. By the end I was really getting bored with exploding body parts, weapons bursting through bodies, and repetitive melee battles.
