I thoroughly enjoyed this, though it took me like an hour to get into it.

thought that the series was fantastic to listen to. I don't usually like books that jump characters like these do, but it works well because you get views from different sides in each book

I'm posting this after finishing the series. Overall this is great series. the first and last book are leaps ahead of the other two. The second book is fairly slow. you have to stick with the series to get to the great ending. I will leave a good warning for this series though. It uses sex and rape as driving forces throughout almost the entire series. it is at times off putting and frankly unnecessary. if you dont wish to deal with a sex scene or obscene visual every 2-3 chapters I would give this series a hard pass. the magic is captivating and continuous evolves in the story. this is the main draw I had to the story. the author keeps the wonder around the mechanics of warding going all the way until the end of the book. couple this with imaginative fight scenes and Peter Brett had earned himself "boundless honor" in the pages of these stories. The way demons are honed into every aspect of human life was thoughtfully done and blends so seamlessly that the reader doesnt doubt the believably of page they inhabit. You'll wonder how you can like a pack of monster that eat humans so much. I would reccomend this book for anyone that enjoy stories that involve massive world creation. other than the amount sex added in this book would be 5/5.

There are potential subjects that are presented that could be offensive or emotionally difficult to hear. The topics are inferred and the attitudes of some of the subjects are treated with little regard. I see them as setting the stage and tone of society they live in. But it can be harsh. Having said that over all I enjoyed the book. There are three characters that we follow starting in their youth. Their growth good and bad is the foundation for when they eventually come together. The 4th “character” would be the demons that terrorize the world. There is no swearing but sex if talked about and violence is throughout.

This whole series is great! I found myself thinking about the characters and story after I had finished it. I have gone back and listened to it many times as a result. Peter Bradbury is an awesome narrator. I felt as though I was listening to a separate actor for each character, not a single narrator.

Enjoys this work. Good story. Good narrator. A not so Young Adult fantasy. It's good. It is.

The story was slow to start but gave a great feel for the world the characters lived it. The action was great when it happened and ended in a super final battle that was fun and exciting. I liked the book. I recommend it to fantasy readers and those that like rediscovery of lost arts and science.

I’m on the second book. It’s a great series. The author has created his own world. Interesting characters, history, language, and customs.

Fantastic story line not your standard that I am used to from some many of the fantasy series. I hope the next books continue to as entertaining. Excellent narration too.

Takes awhile to get into it. Could use less carnage and more interesting dialogue in the beginning. Other than that it was inventive and intriguing. Loved the characters. Would love to here more. Ok than I find out it’s a series! Yah!

one of my most novice reads ever. the author needs to update his vocabulary. this book was written by a kid who thinks he's an adult and also thinks conversations should end with someone spitting on the floor.
