    Description

    Jackson Blackwell, the Shadow Master, is in trouble. And we’re not talking about that fake kind of trouble most books use to lure in listeners. This is the “oh crap, we’ve been reading about Sophia’s vengeance for three books now” kind of trouble. 

    That’s right, dear listener. You heard me correctly. The time has finally come for Sophia to enact her vengeance against one Julian Jackson Blackwell. The name of the book is Villains Defeat, after all, and it is a story of team building, betrayal, plots-within-plots, and a how-to guide for toppling an empire. So, yeah, we’re kind of riffing on “the heist” genre in this one.

    But what good is a heist story that doesn’t have the occasional twist?

    Villains Defeat is the fourth installment in the multiple-award-nominated and one-win (SOVA 2019 baby!) Shadow Master series. This thrilling and hilarious adventure shines a spotlight on Jackson’s foibles and flaws as overlooked plot points of the past come back to bite him in a major way. Attacked on multiple fronts, and across multiple worlds, does the Shadow Master have what it takes to stay on top? 

    Well...what’s the name of this book again?

    Another phenomenal diversion

    I probably get too big a kick out of these books but they are funny, well paced, witty, and completely satisfying to listen to. The author and narrator are a knockout team.

    if you dont mind looking weird at work.

    Got a ton of strange looks for laughing at work. Very funny and entirely self aware. A great light read can't wait for the next one.

    You Magnificent B@$tard!

    Again he has written another great book, and yet again I will have to go back re-read the books and look for all the little tidbits. If you are a new reader and just came across this book read the first ones. If you are not new to the book series read this one then reread and come back. Jackson you Magnificent B@$tard!

    Done with this series

    I'll say this - the first book in this series was great - funny, interesting and refreshing. The second was very good without a sophomoric slump. The third was tough to review - the twist made up for slogging through the entire book but just barely.

    I literally just renewed my Audible membership after a hiatus and was thrilled to see this book was out. I bought it with my first credit and then found that it was just more of the same shtick. The 4th wall breaking. Long rants. The humor fell flat.

    By chapter 10 (of 40), I was trying to find all reviews to figure out if it was just me (maybe?). By chapter 13, I couldn't stand it anymore. I jumped to chapter 35 to see if there was a twist and found I had missed almost nothing. Even then I found the chapters tedious to slog through (despite the excellent audio performance). I skipped again and again. By chapter 38 I was listening with one AirPod in while typing this and clicking the 'skip 30 seconds' button repeatedly.

    Near the end of chapter 38, I got to this: 'Go listen to a better audiobook'...well said

    The twist/payoff doesn't even come until chapter 40 - but then it's too little too late.

    I don't enjoy writing poor reviews but the lack of critical ones for this fourth entry in the series allowed me to waste a couple of hours of my time so hopefully this will help serve as a counter to the other reviews posted so far.

    Many lol moments

    This is a great series. I love M.K.'s self-deprecating humour and way he engages the reader. Him and Kafer make a great team. Can't wait for the next one, keep 'em coming, M.K.!

    Buy it.

    After hearing Jackson's opinions on 5 paragraph reviews I am having performance issues. Which is actually one of the themes throughout the book which proves I listened to it, I loved it and I think you'll love it too. As with all Jackson past books you need to take it seriously when it's serious and laugh when you're supposed to laugh. If not the book will piss you like it did with me in book 1. As long as you're the type of person that can literally roll with the punches You will love this book as much as I do.

    Another great outing for the Shadowmaster!

    I came across this series about a year ago and since then gleefully consumed the previously published books before i got to the long wait for Villian's Defeat. Having now finished Villian's Defeat, I can say that I have not been disappointed and find myself once again in the long wait for what comes next!
