    Like many, I suspect, Audible heavily advertising a complete fantasy trilogy 65 hours of audio for one credit was sufficient to peak my interest What finally convinced me to pull the trigger was the narrator being Tim Gerald Reynolds, whose work I had just enjoyed on the first Riyria Chronicles novel.Overall, while it never got terrible enough for me to give up on, the writing and the characters just never developed to a level where I found myself compelled If I were reading the physical boo Like many, I suspect, Audible heavily advertising a complete fantasy trilogy 65 hours of audio for one credit was sufficient to peak my interest What finally convinced me to pull the trigger was the narrator being Tim Gerald Reynolds, whose work I had just enjoyed on the first Riyria Chronicles novel.Overall, while it never got terrible enough for me to give up on, the writing and the characters just never developed to a level where I found myself compelled If I were reading the physical books, I likely would have given up somewhere in the second one, but I tend to beforgiving with listening to audiobooks Reynolds narration helps elevate the material to make itpalatable, though even he seems to be giving up on it by then end It may be my imagination, but the narration seems to grow flat towards the end of the third book, and several audio editing errors in the third book compound this.As for the story itself, it starts off with a promising enough premise a young man sees powerful magic performed and starts a quest to learn how to do it He picks up a companion early on and we have the makings of a buddy adventure, the way Raymond E Feist used to do.Unfortunately, the writing and characterization comes across as flat Despite there being several different cultural areas and one major non human race, the common tongue everywhere seems to be snarky retorts While I appreciate snark and a well delivered quip, it quickly becomes tiresome as it feels like no one can have just a normal conversation, regardless of the circumstances It s really hard to care about the two main characters, or any of the problems that they run into along the way.I tend to favor stories with strong characters, though I can and do enjoy stories where the characters are shallower but the overall plot is compelling This trilogy, unfortunately, offers neither strong characters, nor a compelling plot

    I have given these three books five..yes FIVE stars I m putting it up there with Dune The Hobbit and Stranger in a Strange Land The first book was a TAD sloggy, but I think that was mostly due to editing problems Quite possibly Kindle editing But the read was so good I had no problem just ignoring that.Then the second and third books were so masterful I couldn t help but forgive anything that might have been a problem with the first book The two main characters were so fun and real, eve I have given these three books five..yes FIVE stars I m putting it up there with Dune The Hobbit and Stranger in a Strange Land The first book was a TAD sloggy, but I think that was mostly due to editing problems Quite possibly Kindle editing But the read was so good I had no problem just ignoring that.Then the second and third books were so masterful I couldn t help but forgive anything that might have been a problem with the first book The two main characters were so fun and real, even from the first time they met, that I felt like they were old friends And I don t know how many times I startled my husband by bursting out in laughter over the witty banter Dante and Blays were both very moving, dedicated and funny characters.Also, the plot lines and secondary characters were well thought out, well fleshed out, and never ever boring It took me over three weeks to read these and I could have read at least one .I will definitely search out and readby this author.THANK YOU EDWARD W.ROBERTSON..Well done

    I bought this book because it was a kindle deal and it had surprisingly good if few reviews However, it was a total waste of time Almost stopped after the first book, but kept reading it till the bitter end.I didn t care about the main character and his actions mostly didn t make a lot of sense I did like the magic system, but honestly that s not enough in a 1600 pages book Wouldn t recommend it.

    I was simply getting sick of the buckets of blood, the incessant violence, the joyless sex, and all the accoutrements of modern fantasy plus I was ahead in my reviews so I satisfied my hunger for something a little easier on the soul by downloading The Cycle of Arawn This was a big investment 99 cents for all three volumes, but I was very happy with the serious cash outlay, as I read all three books in a row, and had a good time doing so.OK, there were so many narrow escapes from death I was simply getting sick of the buckets of blood, the incessant violence, the joyless sex, and all the accoutrements of modern fantasy plus I was ahead in my reviews so I satisfied my hunger for something a little easier on the soul by downloading The Cycle of Arawn This was a big investment 99 cents for all three volumes, but I was very happy with the serious cash outlay, as I read all three books in a row, and had a good time doing so.OK, there were so many narrow escapes from death and quite a bit of willing suspension of disbelief Walking through walls Really but the characters were well done, and the story took some unexpected turns And to Edward Robertson s credit, his protagonists were not all shiny and dressed in white, and wrestled with some moral issues along the way and did so without descending into nihilistic abandonment of everything but self preservation.My world wasn t rocked, but it was much happier while I was reading The Cycle of Arawn than when I m slogging through the latest Joe Abercrombie knockoff, waiting for the next set of entrails to drip off the end of a rusted, bloodied sword.You might find it fun as well

    Still working my way through book 1, which is probably part of the problem reading shouldn t be work There are these long moments of being in the MC s head where almost nothing else happens, and while I get why they are there, they re too much too long Still, it is keeping me engaged enough to keep reading for now At this point, though, I m not so sure I ll be interested in diving into the second book sooner rather than later We ll have to see if things pick up better in the latter two thi Still working my way through book 1, which is probably part of the problem reading shouldn t be work There are these long moments of being in the MC s head where almost nothing else happens, and while I get why they are there, they re too much too long Still, it is keeping me engaged enough to keep reading for now At this point, though, I m not so sure I ll be interested in diving into the second book sooner rather than later We ll have to see if things pick up better in the latter two thirds of the book.Edit Finally gave up I kept hoping it would get better, but it just plodded along There s not enough movement in the story itself to keep attempting to finish Moving on now And won t be looking at the remaining books in the set

    Is it possible to rate a book series 0 stars Another one of those books overrated because its a Goodreads author and his friends upvoted his book to try and boost his sales Goodreads should be watching out for its users and stopping this from happening Be wary readers Always check all the reviews and if there are only so many dont buy into the ratings This author barely understands the english language and trying to read this if you do will be a hugely frustrating experience I made it a fe Is it possible to rate a book series 0 stars Another one of those books overrated because its a Goodreads author and his friends upvoted his book to try and boost his sales Goodreads should be watching out for its users and stopping this from happening Be wary readers Always check all the reviews and if there are only so many dont buy into the ratings This author barely understands the english language and trying to read this if you do will be a hugely frustrating experience I made it a few chapters before I couldnt take it any This is the second time I have been caught by bogus reviews on Goodreads Not happy with the dishonesty of the reviewers or Goodreads allowing it to happen

    So, there are a lot of damming reviews in this section by people who have read at most the first book This is from someone who has read all three.Yes, the first book is a bit slow Yes, perhaps the characters are not amazingly written, and perhaps the modern slang is a bit weird But by the second story, and from then on, it gets gripping I just finished recently, and the third book got me quite angry about the fact I couldn t read it quickly enough to satisfy my need to find outab So, there are a lot of damming reviews in this section by people who have read at most the first book This is from someone who has read all three.Yes, the first book is a bit slow Yes, perhaps the characters are not amazingly written, and perhaps the modern slang is a bit weird But by the second story, and from then on, it gets gripping I just finished recently, and the third book got me quite angry about the fact I couldn t read it quickly enough to satisfy my need to find outabout the then gripping plot.My advice give the first book a go If you don t have the will to get through it, check up on the plot on the internet, then skip on to book 2 end of book 1 It is really quite worth reading, I found it thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining.The humour is modern at times, but had be laughing out loud numerous times Some people have said all the characters are the same completely untrue.Don t really know what else to say but I feel really satisfied that I have read a good book now

    As a former avid reader, and a current avid audible listener, I cannot give this 5 stars I can however give it a solid 4 stars I found listening to this book was what it must feel like to push a boulder down a slowly sloping hill, with a wall at the endat first you are like yeah, ok this is gonna be fun then you think can this damn boulder move any slower shortly followed by okoki see where this is going then by the last book you are just holding your breath until the As a former avid reader, and a current avid audible listener, I cannot give this 5 stars I can however give it a solid 4 stars I found listening to this book was what it must feel like to push a boulder down a slowly sloping hill, with a wall at the endat first you are like yeah, ok this is gonna be fun then you think can this damn boulder move any slower shortly followed by okoki see where this is going then by the last book you are just holding your breath until the inevitable collision Even though it is predictable, it is still fun If I had not received all three books at one time I probably would not have moved past the first one, too slow for my taste By the end of the second I was glad i kept it up and was looking forward to the third.Being a LOTR fan, and realizing what an alternate reality can possibly be.a 5 is almost impossible to reachso a 4 is good enough for me


  9. Ben Baumgardner Ben Baumgardner says:

    I agree with earlier criticisms of this book, and I felt that all the characters were the same person, who by the way did not seem very fleshed out I didn t like them, nor did I care what happened to them, or become interested in what was happening I kept thinking that the book was going to get better, or that the limited world building and character building was the author s way of slowly revealing mysteries, but found myself being frustrated all the way till I quit midway during book two.


  10. Caiti Caiti says:

    I consider this book abandoned for now.There was not enough happening to keep me interested I believe I read up to the part of the Dead City There is not much to say about so little Slow story, poor character building, too many words for a whole lot of nothing.
