    Description

    The Monster of Karth has risen once more. Quin Tern of Azbar has met his fate, and his council has borne the price of crossing Raz i'Syul Arro. Now, as the cruel walls of the city fade into the winter storms at his back, Raz rides north, seeking to take the High Priest Talo Brahnt up on an offer he never should have refused. The path Raz has chosen, though, is a bloody one, and before long he and his new companions find themselves pitted against hardships they can neither anticipate nor ignore. As man and snow and beast alike rise up to block their path, it seems almost as though the North itself has woken to wage war against the Monster.

    And yet, Raz's greatest challenge still looms ahead. Far to the north, like a plague beneath the trees, Gûlraht Baoill, Kayle of the savage mountain tribes, leads his armies further east with each passing day. He has set his hungry gaze upon the reaches of Cyurgi' Di, the High Citadel, and desires nothing more than to see it razed from the face of the world, offering it and its blasphemous "false-prophets" up as sacrifice to his Stone Gods. Syrah Brahnt, the High Priest's adopted daughter and protégé, has found him out, discovering his plan to lay siege to her home, cutting her and the rest of the Laorin off from the world. As it is, though, there is little and less that she can do, and when the first of the Kayle's generals reaches the base of the mountain pass, Syrah is left with only one option. In the end, she will have to face the wrath of the tribes herself....

    Little does she know that the Monster is coming, riding hard to lend her his blades.

    Great narrator, lackluster story

    So I've been through the previous titles in the series, and for the most part found them passable. Perhaps it's that I'm using audible instead of reading it myself that I found them this way. I was able to over look the flaws of the series until this title

    I've been able to get over the obvious power fantasy that Roz is, and overlook the lack of knowledge the author has for how the world works, but what killed me on this entry was the reunion between the two main characters. It was so forced, unrealistic, and downright unbelievable that I will not be finishing the series.

    I had already purchased the next book, so I have been listening to it. The relationship between the two principle characters is so badly written I don't know if I will be able to finish it.

    Aside from that the story of the series doesn't do anything new as far as the genre goes. It is a standard by the numbers generic fantasy story you might get from a D&D novelization, but with less world building.

    If you are okay with power fantasy characters, bland world, unrealistic relationships, and a plot resolution you should have seen coming from two books away go ahead and get it. For me personally I need something more In my fantasy.

    The narrator is excellent though!

    Gritty, violent

    I waited until I finished the series before writing a review. This was a difficult series for me though Bryce is an accomplished author and Mikael Naramore is an outstanding narrator. The story is extremely violent, certainly not for the squeamish. Definitely not for everyone. The climax is very powerful and well crafted, which frankly made the story. Sub plots dealing with cruelty and prejudice including sexual assault were at times over the top. Not a light hearted fantasy read, to be sure.

    So much negativity and devastation

    It's starting to feel like the author went to the James R.R. Martin school of writing. I stopped reading game of thrones partly because it was so cynical, and I'm hoping this series doesn't turn out the same. I'm not looking for rainbows and butterflies all the time, but I'm also not looking for negativity and brutal devastation constantly.

    Ok series. Main char too OP. good read by naramore

    struggle to finish due to the over powered nature of the main character, they solve all problems too easily and never lose a fight and deal with the aftermath. Mary Sue hero. Only finishing because I hope this changes, world wise the story is interesting.

    O'Connor takes a sick pleasure in abuse

    not in the three books I've managed to read has a single thing gone right for the protagonists in the story. it might seem like it does, but then everything goes wrong. this as a reader already makes the book hard to read, but the level of depravity in the series from child suicide to gruesome mutilation and rape makes it unbearable. it's really disappointing, because I enjoyed the world and characters. to me this is a reflection of the authors mind, and that is what really disturbs me.

    Raz continues his carnage...and growth.

    Book 3 in this saga continues strong.
    Mountain men, priests, battles. If you read books 1+2... don't even question #3...grab it now. I really enjoyed the priest caste...so different then usual fantasy visages of these important characters. Also...another fantastic narration.

    Raz i’Syul Arro & Syrah Brandh

    They keep you racing to “turn the page” while dreading the last book.

    I can honestly say I’ve held off reading sections so that I could pay close attention or because it was so intense I didn’t want to “read” it yet.

    Just because you know the author can’t kill them off yet, doesn’t mean you aren’t clenching your fists and holding your breath. Lol
