This book wasn't bad, a good portion of it was made up two battles, and it was nothing but frustrating for me to listen to. The main character was describing the battle going on around him without doing anything himself. He had obvious goals to complete, but in some cases after chapters go by of him describing what is happening around him, the battle ends with him running off into the mist to kill some of the leftovers, no details he just returns and the game-like interface explains the rewards he gets for completing the side quests. You have to assume... Some of the stupid mistakes he makes are obvious, I have no doubt anyone who reads or listens to the story will bang their own head. I feel the main character is smart but the writer for some reason allows him to step out of character for the added drama. I wasn't going to buy the next book, but I found myself wondering what happen next, Gawd! I'm hooked, much to my dismay. ARG! oh well, see you in the next one. :)

Nick Podehl does an amazing job brining Aleron Kong's characters and world to life again making that just 5 more min before bed turn into hours. I continue to love the sarcastic humor between Richter and Sion. This book has it all video game / role playing game mechanics, amazing characters, dungeons, and monsters to kill.
