Publisher's Summary

The Behemoth was created 1,000 years ago, its body stretching for miles under Malaroo's swamplands turning them into a dangerous and uninhabitable place. Now it has learned to swallow the peoples of Malaroo and transform them into its own army; a twisted mix of troll and man known as the Trollkin. It hungers to consume the power of the Jharro Grove and if it succeeds the world will be plunged into darkness.
Justan and Jhonate, forced to hold off their wedding until the threat is over, find themselves stuck between the two rival factions that are the only hope of defeating the Behemoth and its everlasting hunger.

A 1000 year old enemy returns for revenge.

The Behemoth is startlingly original in its concept of a larger than life foe. The vast area of swamplands allow it to stretch and grow to a titanic size, even allowing parts of it's 'body' to pop up all over the swamplands. .
Normally such a foe would defeat or devour the defending armies, however this one recycles their prey and creates a new species called Trollkin, a ready made army.
Fist and his bonded have to find new ways to fight the enemy, whilst Melinda rears her ugly head again stirring up trouble wherever she goes.
loved this book so much I couldn't stop listening to it and Andrew Tell the narrator has done another fantastic job, bringing the characters to life.
If you enjoyed the previous books in the series this one will stir your imagination and pull you into the lives of the characters.

wonderful read

My Thoughts:
Reading this book after waiting for so long after the last book was like meeting old friends again! And I am particularly happy to see Fist again, being his lovable ogre self! By now I am an old die hard fan of this series. And this book was a wonderful 5 star read! The down side is, that you have to trudge through previous books first to get here! And that is not an arduous task as it may sound. It has its down sides and upsides. You just have to roll with the bad as with the good. And the series has lots and lots of good reading times!

Sure, some would say that the plot is kind of formulaic, so what? It is the pleasure of reading it that matters! And it is a pleasurable read! At first I was kinda reluctant to read through the book so I only listened to it halfway through. I was reluctant because I knew this book is going to be a cliffhanger simply because every single book in this series is a cliffie. And it is kind of one, but only if you read the epilogue. Even then, it is still kind of not... This book closes 12 books worth of story and it is very satisfying! Of course I want more! So the epilogue tells me what to expect next and I very much like that, so those of you who is thinking of following this series, read the epilogue! :) Needless to say that this is the best book in the series!
