A terrible storm is brewing in London, and Nathan Garrett, the sorcerer known as Hellequin, is the only one who can stop it.
But his enemies have other plans. Harnessing the power of an ancient stone tablet, they cast Nate and his allies into another realm, where a bloody conflict rages between creatures twisted by magic. Meanwhile, with his friends' lives in danger, Nate must put centuries of differences aside, and place his trust in one of his greatest foes.
Time is running out. Trapped and outnumbered, Nate must use all his wits and power to survive and find his way home before his enemies start a war that could destroy everything he holds close. Welcome to the penultimate chapter of the Hellequin Chronicles.

Different narrator after 5 books!?

Good book but let down by a change in narrator. The narrator used is 'good' but a change in the way words and names are pronounced after 5 books is jarring and some how made Nate sound whiny rather than badass.

A nice continuation of the series

Overall this was an enjoyable listen and the story generally moved along well.

First thing though is that the narrator has changed from the one that has done the previous 5 novels. If you haven't listened to the previous novel in some time you might not notice but if you are listening one after the other you of course will be jarred by the change. The new narrator does a credible job and is fine.

The novel itself continues the various plot lines and resolves a few while starting up some more and ends with you wanting the release of the next one.

One bad habit that seemed especially noticeable in this release was the use of villians answering questions to advance the plot. Nate and his group would find some villain and ask them why they are doing something and generally get an answer or if not they would fight a bit and ask their questions and get some answers. It really did not seem very plausible and felt more like a plot device to advance the information and story.

The similarities of the spell scrolls and the sorcerers nightmares seems obvious though Nate did not pick up on it but it will undoubtedly be a part of the next story.

If you have made it this far in the series then this novel will easily met your expectations.
