Wow, the ending blew me away!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the author provides detail to the mindset of each character and the narrator brings them to life. The final book had me on edge from beginning to end.

What other book might you compare Crown of Shadows to and why?

I find it to be unique. A living world that adapts and has a symbiotic bond with its inhabitants. It feels like the era is old but it is actually thousands of years into our future.

What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed the narrator's performance. He scares me when he does the voices of the nameless and the demons. Each character sounds different and he really brings out the personality of the Hunter and the Priest.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I actually cried at the end. I don't want to give anything away but you actually feel sorry for many of the characters.

Any additional comments?

I wish there were more books to this series but at last it cannot be. :-( So I purchased C.S Friedman's "Feast of Souls"..

Dark Magic and Human mistakes

This book is excellent. If you prefer your fantasy dark and complicated then this is for you. The story is a little choppy from book to book, but for me I found the story to really be between the characters and not in their quest.
After reading this book ask yourself, What would you do to accomplish your goals?
