Description

Betrayal cuts deepest when someone you love wields the knife. 

For Kellik, a once-rising star of Port Gloom's guild of thieves, it also leaves him floating in the bay, bleeding out and without hope or allies. Saved by an urchin and healed by a disgraced saint, Kellick is consumed by a single desire: to find out why his guild master ordered him cut down moments after passing his initiation trial. 

Burning with injustice, Kellik recruits a number of gorgeous rogues to his side: fallen assassins, dark elf witches, and unnervingly polite necromancers. Together they journey through the shadowy underbelly of Port Gloom in pursuit of bloody revenge, daring to face impossible odds and uncover the grim truth: not only the reason for the guild's unnatural monopoly on crime, but why his guild master might have been justified in ordering his death after all. 

Warning and minor spoilers: Rise of the Shadow Rogue is an 18+ audiobook intended for mature listeners. It contains graphic sex, medieval violence, and nudity. People swear, betray their loved ones, set each other on fire, seduce each other, and are scared witless by abysmal horrors. Most importantly, you'll meet gorgeous, powerful women, some capable of twisting the very fabric of fate, others of tearing a man in half with their bare hands. All are willing to enter unconventional, polyamorous harem relationships if it means helping Kellik achieve justice, and with this many powerful women on his side, he just might stand a chance.

not the harem book I expected, in a good way.

mild spoilers ahead based on the summary, I was expecting some multi girlfriend somehow we all agree to date one guy thing. what I got was a more an action movie with James bond level of sexual encounters. but instead of one interest per movie, he shags multiple girls. all told I enjoyed the story.

Great story. Can’t recommend it to friends.

I loved the story and the world he built, but due to the harem elements and graphic sex scenes, there are few people I can recommend it to. This is definitely action/rpg/porn. I’m sure I just missed the tag in the description. Looking forward to part 2

Start of the book sounded amazing then...

The narrator was great!! The book itself started out very well, However a little less than half way through the book it just crapped out. Instead of a adventure/fantasy it became a boys wet dream. It was so disjointed, at first the characters had life and you were getting to know them then all of a sudden after the first sex scene they became flat, it was like the author just wrote in lines so he could get to the next sex scene. I got half way and had to stop couldn't take it anymore, sad, because this book had so much potential.

Great gritty fantasy

If your looking for a gritty , dirty, fantasy novel this is it. But very well done. Not like game of thrones realism. It’s sort of like the lord of the rings but incredibly darker. And a word of warning the scenes are like reading a playboy fantasy. All in all very good.

Basically, Bad D&D Porn.

It felt like the narrator was reading a script to a 1970s Porn movie based around the fantasy world of D&D. The story is basic and kind of weak. The main character is constantly seduced in VIVID detail by improbably hot humans and non humans. The narrator performance is lackluster. Very unoriginal characters, except one which was basically ignored. Could have been good...

Boring... The story needed 1/4 removed.

A decent plot and story... But only decent, nothing "Wow" or even original. The whole book flows like the author, took elements of familiar genres or ploys from popular books, and spliced them in. These inserts do not flow smoothly or even logically with the authors writing style. Like how only Stephen King can write his own style. And anyone trying to mimic it will never have the correct flow or style to play of one of his scenes. This author can NOT pull off other successful plots or styles. In addition, about a fourth of the book needs to be edited out to condense the massive empty over wording every possible scene or opportunity. Shorter would help keep the reader interested

Impressive and dark

This book was so well written. In a way that you take it very seriously as high quality main stream fantasy. The only part which may keep it isolated is the explicit sex scenes which although done well I suppose confines it to a smaller audience. That aside this is Joe Abercrombie level story and gore which is a rare rare gem in a world where mediocre books have to be waded through on a regular basis if you want real dark fantasy.

It was definitely different

The book starts out really well as far as the story goes. My major issue with this book was the lack of world building. Throughout the book more info gets tossed at you with no explanation from races to God’s it gets very annoying. As a side note the book does have some adult sections that are fairly extreme with the wording (I don’t mind but for those that do) and those scenes seems as if they all run back to back.

the guy is so annoying

the protagonist is the main problem of the story, it feels like the author wanted a smoothtalking criminal who is at the same time a sensitive soul and also has deep psychological issues...this combination of character traits doesn't create a believeable or likeable person. At one time he went through at least 3 different characters in the span of approx. 5 minutes, he went from confident leader to insecure kid to having a life crisis and a breakdown to having intercourse like a wild animal after wich his pride gets hurt because the woman wouldn't sing his praises. Also the only likeable important characters after half of the whole book are the wartroll and the protagonists best friend. Everybody else is just selfish, egoistic, mean, arrogant, self-righteous and so on. It feels to me as if the author doesn't know how to write believeable characters that work in context to world building and simple logic.
