A Spiral Into Utter Darkness!
This, series has been genuinely outstanding. It includes what I would regard as some of the most powerful scenes that I have ever seen in a fantasy series. Tyrion's endless struggle against his oppressors and his own nature is genuinely a dark and gripping tale. He is constantly hemmed in by the unforeseen consequences of his actions and he and his children descend into a darkness that threatens to overcome everything. I now think that the author was definitely right to include his warning about the nature of the book, it delves into areas that are far from comfortable reading. Child abuse, domestic violence, intolerance and dark deeds are at the heart of this story and yet there are also positive, strong characters and the enduring hope, albeit often fleeting, that light will prevail. The tale of Tyrion's torment, his crushing desire for revenge and how it drives a man who undoubtedly had goodness in his soul to the edge of his sanity is a masterpiece. The true darkness though is how it effects those around him and what many of them become.
The narration by Alex Wyndham is top quality throughout, his voices really help to flesh the characters out.
The tensions grow as Tyrion and the world around him are dragged further and further into darkness. It all leads up to a quite cataclysmic finale and a sudden, brutal ending. Although there are some slower passages in this book the way that the sheer madness builds and then quite literally shudders to that dramatic conclusion is near perfection.

Very good end
The beginning of this 3rd chapter it was slow and it didn't convince me. However as the story continued it got interesting and although sad I really like the end. It is also good to finish in 3 books. Many thanks

I'm not sure if this was the conclusion to the series - But the ending was awesome. Not how I imagined - Which made it even better.
As weird as some of the concepts were in this series - It was equally genius. The character building was incredible. I understood each person and their personalities. Bridgett was a work of art. The way she was developed and her psyche was disturbingly intriguing.
As a struggling writer - I feel inadequate listing to this book, as well as inspired.
Also - Alex Wyndham has moved into my top ten narrator list. His switch between characters was flawless. His male and female voices were incredible and easy to listen to.
