Description

A new threat has risen.

For years, peace has reigned within the boundaries of the empire. Monks, gifted with extraordinary powers, wander the land, keeping order by any means necessary. Their gifts make them invincible, or so most believe.

A lone warrior disagrees. Guided by a shadowy organization, Fang seeks to break the monasteries. Once left for dead by powerful monks, revenge has driven him to unimaginable strength. Only one obstacle stands in his way.

His name is Lei, and he is no hero. Exiled by the monasteries for an unforgivable crime, he’s more comfortable with a drink in his hand than a sword. But he’s about to be thrust into a fight he had no part in starting.

As destiny hurtles the two men into inevitable conflict, the fate of the empire hangs in the balance.

Dojo-busting powerhouse

This ticked all my boxes, well-described exciting fights following what is basically a dojo-busting super fighter on a quest to fix things. It hooked me early and is so well-performed that I didn't want it to end.

You wont be sad about this one if you like the martial-arts fightsies. I was lucky enough to be provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher. I wouldn't have been upset if I had paid for it.

It is weird that I really liked this book.

I normally will not read about Oriental Assasians or anything about the feudal times. Something got my attention while reading about the contents of this audible book. This book pulled it off and held my attention all the way through. The Mystic powers were not too overly pushed. Anyway, I recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review." "I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.”

An order of warrior monks with special abilities

So when a world is guarded by a group of warrior monks with an ability to harness a special type of magic it should be pretty safe. Well.....something has changed. Some evil force is gathering and plotting against the order of monks. They are now taking their steps to fruition and have begun a slaughter of the monks. Their only hope? A disgraced monk who has been bonded with the spirit is his murdered brother. Will they be enough? Listen and find out. Great story.

Relentless Souls

Note: I was given this story at my request and have agreed to provide a voluntary and unbiased review.

Although enjoyable as a single read-through, the story was linear and predictable; leaving you feeling as though you started with the final book in a series.

The story focuses around the investigation of a murderer that kills with a power believed to only be known to an order of peace keeping monks.

The narration is well done and lends to the atmosphere of the world.

Relentless Souls

I enjoyed most of this book. The narration was really good, and for the most part I liked the story/plot. There was some repetition in the way it was told and I was ready for the end when it came. I think it was the way the characters interacted that kept me from really enjoying the book to it's fullest. There were some really fun action sequences in there, and overall I had a good experience listening to it.

This story was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

I really loved it

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great, action packed, martial arts/fantasy story. I thought the author did a good job world building. I also thought the characters were well developed and engaging. The narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life. The story was also good. It was actually more complex and interesting than I expected. All in all, if you like martial arts, a fantasy world, and action, this is one I would highly recommend.

Solid martial arts story

Relentless Souls is a great martial arts story! The characters feel like they jumped out of a dragonball episode. The action is solid and the characters are well developed.

There are two main characters that circle each other all the way till the end of the story. Fang is a trained assassin that has deep personal reasons to hate the monasteries and the monks that are supposed to be protecting the lands. He has pushed himself daily to reach his goals. Lei is a ex monk who has turned to drink to avoid his past.

When they are put on a collision course, there can be only one outcome as they need to determine who is the strongest warrior in the land.

This was a very enjoyable book, but there was a lot that wasn't explained. I got the feeling that I picked up a book mid-series. It took me a while to figure out what was going on and there was never really an explanation as to why some characters where over powered and others that had trained their entire lives were severely weaker than them.

The fight is on.

*I was given this free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It's been a while since I've listened to Andrew Tell. I've enjoyed his stories in the past and glad I got to one with his narration. Andrew did not let me down. He voices the story clean and clear through out. He tells the story of Lei and Fang in a way I don't know it's being narrated. This is credit to Ryan's writing as well since I can see the fights as the characters are experiencing them.

We start with a prologue that tells there is something coming, but the news doesn't make it back to the monastery. We learn a little about Lei, and how he's not part of the monastery anymore, along with his angry feelings toward his brother. This prologue is important as it sets the stage for Lei and his brother's relationship. But it also connects the trouble that's coming to our characters.

We get the chapters from Lei or Fang's eyes. It's easy to know who we are with as each chapter starts with naming them in the first sentence. The story is very straight forward and of a simple feel with the characters. We know what they want and what they are to do. Lei just wants to be left alone, but his life takes a turn when his brother dies. Lei experiences more than he expected and comes to have a respect for some things in life. Fang wants to please his Master.

Both men have a grudge against the Monasteries and monks. But it's what you do with that grudge and how you act on it that makes a difference. The two men have a few things in common, though the end results of their time with the Monastery is different. That end result is what formed the person they become. This is an interesting story of how what you life through influences your responses.

I enjoy the neat and orderly writing of Ryan's. I find the story is easy to follow and things are not overly hidden in the story. The feel of an oriental influence in the story is strong and very nice to read/listen to.

If you enjoy fighting, this book is for you. We are in the head of one of the fighters as they battle. You can see the fight and what's happening to the area around them.

Fantasy, Martial Arts and Magic

I found this story quite enjoyable. It takes place in a fantasy world that feels very much like China in the pre industrial ages. Peace is kept in this world by Monks who have special Magical powers. When a child is found to have these powers he has no other option than to become a Monk or to die(pretty harsh right?)

The story follows Lei who was a Monk in training with his brother but do to an incident he was thrown out of the Monastery which was an unheard of occurrence. His brother stayed and that caused a rift between him. He went into a downward spiral and pretty much became the town drunk.

Lei's brother is then killed by a mysterious man who also has powers but was also not a monk and he was extremely powerful. Lei than is brought back into the monastery against his will for his brothers funeral and he experiences a strange feeling as if his brothers soul had touched his. From then on Lei is somewhat changed and finds he has the skills and powers of his brother as if he had never stopped training.

He goes on a quest to find the man who killed his brother.

The narration by Andrew Tell is very well done and he does a great job with all the different character.
