    Description

    The curse that made Lord Hugh of Stasiek the most dangerous man in the empire also destroyed his will to live. He now yearns for nothing more than dissolution, to lose himself in strong wine, reckless gambling, and in the arms of countless beautiful women. Yet when the call comes from the one man he cannot disobey - his elder brother, the duke - he puts aside his dreams of death and rides forth to secure the fate of a seemingly insignificant border town.

    Joined by a small cadre of uniquely lethal and gorgeous women, Hugh crushes every obstacle before him, only to discover an insidious and malignant force that defies even the power of his blade. A force that, if left unchecked, will consume not only the town and everyone Hugh has come to care for, but sweep down into the duchy itself and bring forth an age of fire and ruin.

    Only Hugh's curse - that fey, wretched source of his ungodly might - gives him a chance of preventing this dire fate. But choosing to consciously embrace that power - the same that near drove him to death - could have consequences far beyond anything he could imagine....

    Warning and minor spoilers: This is an 18+ audiobook intended for mature listeners. It contains graphic sex, medieval violence, and harem relationships.

    Just boring.

    I'm not going to finish this book because I'm bored to tears by it. Normally I don't care if the mc is a blatant Mary Sue, but this takes the fucking cake.
    and when he's not an insatiable sex god or a unkillable warrior beast, he whines. Oh, god how he whines.
    Not worth it.

    Dark, gritty and endlessly entertaining

    After suffering a great trauma Hugh tries to drown out all the ghosts of his past with drink, gambling and any other vice that will keep his mind from reliving the horrors of his past. He is called forth from this stupor by his brother, a Duke, to go and check and reinforce on a town to their outer territory. This leads to him gathering a small team that is the center of the book.

    The heart of this book centers on four damaged characters trying to connect and fix one another while trapped in this place on the outskirts of their dukedom. It has action, violence, intrigue, backstabbing and everything else a great fantasy book could want all while keeping these characters growing and strengthening their bonds.

    The narration by Tess Irondale is stupid good and she is one of the best narrators around and keeps the sense of hope in these characters as they are enveloped by the darkness of this world. Anyone that has read any of Mike Truk's prior books will be very pleased with this book, and I look forward to more from this series. The only bad part is waiting for the next book.

    The story is not bad, but the MC was a bit much

    This is a darker fantasy series, with harem and heavy combat elements. Tess Irondale is amazing as always.

    To be honest, the MC was a bit much for me. Even with the grit and darkness of the series, The MC gets alot of deus ex help, while generally just being a whiny dick the whole time. There are attempts at character development, but whenever it starts down that path, it suddenly will just jump to the end, with no real content to support it.

    Overall, this book and any follow on titles would appeal to those who are into a dark harem fantasy, with over the top MCs.

    Epic Fantasy, Epic Sex and Epicly discounted Price

    Mike Truk strikes again with his marvelous writing. I am still stunned and awed by his ability to combine true epic fantasy on the level of some of the most famous non amazon authors with sex scenes so erotic that they transcend even visual porn. I honestly have no idea how this author's books can be priced so low.
    Tess Irondale's narration brings out every character's anger, sadness, love, and sexiness masterfully.

    Bought for Tess, stayed for the story.

    This was my first Mike Truk book, and I though it was great. I really like the MC's powers and the horrible cost that it comes with. The plot and characters and extremely engaging, and the harem elements are pulled off masterly with story/harem working together instead of overriding each other. Definitely recommend for a read, as for narration, I bought this book solely because it was Tess Irondale, I always love her narration, and will get anything remotely interesting she does. So 5/5 for narration thought I admit I'm biased.

    Excellence

    The writing in this book is top notch. The decisions made by the characters therein are intelligent, tactical. There is never a point where I was disgusted by the decisions made by a character - something to be said. All around, this resonates excellency.

    I am more than surprised

    I was expecting another dumb MC and shallow story propped up by a harem and over overly descriptive sex. However what I got was a story that felt real in many was. This wasn't predictable or overrated. It did feel like it wasn't going anywhere but it kept you interested in the prospect of something big around the corner. I look forward to book 2.

    The narrator was pretty good. I do feel like distinction between characters is a just a liitle lacking but it was still better than most.

    bad pacing and bad psychology

    After the group arrives at their destination and they start sharing secrets the story gets derailed. This group therapy crap that comes up at that point destroys the pacing of the story and it shines a light on quite a few very questionable statements on how to interact with ppl who have certain psychological blocks and problems (example: Everything can be solved with kindness and love). It reads at that point like something a child heard somewhere else without much context instead of an author having made their research before writing about it.

    Excellent

    Filled with sex,drama and passion.
    I would describe it as dark fantasy with alot of explicit content combined with a serious story.
