Their prophet dead and their home lost, the half-bloods Harruq and Qurrah Tun form a strained alliance with a band of mercenaries outside the city of Veldaren. As the brothers and their allies wage a private war against powerful thief guilds, forces greater than them all threaten to tear them apart and ruin any hope for a better life. Harruq must defend his family at all costs, for Qurrah's love of a girl with a shattered mind and the power of a goddess may doom them all.

A strong second book in this series.
I wouldn't say that this is one of my favourite few audiobooks, but it is well above average with the already interesting progression in the series being most definitely enhanced by the narration/performance.I had previously enjoyed reading this book, but found new appreciation for it with the audiobook version along with renewed enthusiasm for returning to the series once again.
I think it would be wrong to single out a single character (even Harruq) as I felt that one of the main strengths of the book comes from the ensemble cast of characters that make up the Eschaton.
I thought the narrator managed to strike the right balance between ensuring each character felt like they had a distinct voice without the performance getting in the way of the book itself.
I found that I preferred to listen to this in smaller bursts a few chapters at a time rather than all at once.
While both this and the Paladins are enjoyable series, I would recommend that anyone who is new to the author to start on his Shadowdance series first.Note - This audiobook was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
