Description

Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling author Peter V. Brett brings one of the most imaginative fantasy sagas of the 21st century to an epic close.

The war has begun....

For time out of mind, bloodthirsty demons have stalked the night, culling the human race to scattered remnants dependent on half-forgotten magics to protect them.

Two heroes arose - men as close as brothers yet divided by bitter betrayal. Arlen Bales became known as the Painted Man, tattooed head to toe with powerful magic symbols that enable him to fight demons in hand-to-hand combat - and emerge victorious. Ahmann Jardir, armed with magically warded weapons, called himself the Deliverer, a figure prophesied to unite humanity and lead them to triumph in Sharak Ka - the final war against demonkind.

But in their efforts to bring the war to the demons, Arlen and Jardir have set something in motion that may prove the end of everything they hold dear - a Swarm. Now the war is at hand, and humanity cannot hope to win it unless Arlen and Jardir, with the help of Arlen's wife, Renna, can bend a captured demon prince to their will and force the devious creature to lead them to the Core, where the Mother of Demons breeds an inexhaustible army.

Trusting their closest confidantes, Leesha, Inevera, Ragen, and Elissa, to rally the fractious people of the Free Cities and lead them against the Swarm, Arlen, Renna, and Jardir set out on a desperate quest into the darkest depths of evil - from which none of them expects to return alive.

Loved this series and audiobook did it immense justice

Waited years for this finale and the audiobook does what they do best, bring an unparalleled level of realism and atmospheric magic. Thank you Peter for seeing it through and I'm eagerly awaiting your next venture. Ripping Core-Spawn of a conclusion, and an ending that leaves room for more in Ala-verse!

Satysfying and entertaining.Time well spent.

Excellent addition to a verystrong cycle.Captivating storytelling from start to finish that gives the main chatacters and their interwoven fates the scale and justice they deserve.The world of Alla and its dark depths come to life trough Peter Brett's words. Offering a satysfying conclusion and teasing the prospect of more tales yet to come.

An excellent conclusion brilliantly read!

Given the time and place it is not surprising that there are times when this feels like one long series of fight sequences but it is a very worthy book. My biggest challenge where listening were getting enough time without interruptions to keep up with all that was going on.

I don't think you could read this book without having followed the series but if you have you are in for a treat.

This is a spectacular series, great ending

The trails this book goes through, both in the storyline, the way you grow with the book and characters, and the the way it is written, is by itself and adventure. WOW, what a ride!

Good story, bad word

The story itself is an amazing piece of art, However from the start I was not a fan of the idea that the only supernatural /fantasy creatures in the world were demons.

Awesome book - below average narrator

Great series of books awesome author the other books I have are read by someone else, I found this book really hard to follow due to the way the Narrator spoke I’ve listened to the other books 2/ 3 times each and know the names/ story pretty well but I struggled with the names with this guy.

Dieses Buch entwertet die gesamte Serie

Was genau hätte man an The Core noch verbessern können?

Nahezu alle Charaktere leiden inzwischen am sog. "Mary Sue Problem". Sie könen alles mit Ihrer Magie lösen, es ist wirklich fast unerträglich zuzuhören.
Die Entwicklung des Hauptcharakters Arlen Bales ist absolut unrealistisch und überzeichnet, es ist nicht klar, woher er seine Weisheit gewonnen hat.
SPOILER: Am besten ist die Stelle, wo er seine Besitztümer im Angesicht einer evtl. tödlichen Mission verschenkt. Hier kommt dann noch ganz nebenbei heraus,d ass er auch noch mal eben nebenbei einer der reichsten Männer der "Welt" ist...
Echt bitter, wie man eine so stark gestartet

Was werden Sie wohl als nächstes hören?

Englische Fantasy-Bücher

Wie hat Ihnen Colin Mace als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

Der Sprecher hat eine angenehme Stimme.

Sie mochten dieses Buch nicht ... Haben Sie vielleicht irgendwelche rettenden Maßnahmen dafür?

Der "Niedergang" der Demon Cycle Serie beginnt eigentlich schon bei Band 3, im hier vorliegenden Band wird er nur vollendet. Insofern kann man eigentlich nichts mehr retten. Was sehr schade ist, die ersten beiden Bände sind wirklich erstklassig.

Tedious

With every book in the series, the story has slowed down more. This is the climax. Rarely did I have to fight boredom more. In the end, unlike me, I gave up. I do not know what, if anything, happened in the end and frankly, I do not care.

Worst of the series

It was really hard to finish for me. I was bored 95% of the time only the very ending was decent. My advice is to not even start with these books but since this is the last one and you probalby have already listened to the rest, skip to the last chapters here because the rest is unintersting and you don't need it to get the ending.

Fulminantes Ende einer tollen Serie.

Der komplette Serie ist sehr unterhaltsam. Der Abschluss ist vielleicht etwas übertrieben schnell und passt nicht ganz zur guten Serie. Trotzdem sehr gute Unterhaltung!
