Summary

The Narthani, a militant realm who believe their manifest destiny is to rule the entire planet, Anyar, plan to absorb Caedellium into their empire and crush any resistance. Yozef Kolsko (a.k.a. Joe Colsco) works to find ways to increase the chances of resistance to the Narthani's planned conquest.
Complicating his life is attraction to a brilliant daughter of an island leader, and his uncertainty of his own mind, hers, or intricacies of Caedellium customs.
Despite his desire to devote himself to introducing new knowledge, Yozef is drawn more and more into developing weapons and giving tactical and strategic advice - things he knows he's unqualified to give. The enemy is coming. The odds seem overwhelming, and it will take all Yozef can do, the courage of his new people, and luck, to survive.

Tedious

A lesson in how to spin out very little story to the maximum length possible would sum up this book. Incredibly boring battles, clumsy dialogue and one of the worst bedroom scenes I've come across for some time. I could go on but have no desire to induce the same levels of boredom as the author.
I won't be buying the third book because I really couldn't care less what happens to any of the characters and can't bear to sit through another brain numbing experience.

Another Binge Listen

As others have mentioned, this is a book that is really hard to stop listening to (as is volume 1). Thorensen's story is excellent in conception and execution. Jonathan Davis is a super-star reader. Put it all together and you might as well get used to saying "ssshhh, I'm listening to a story!" to everyone you know for a day or two.

One thing I really like about these books that I haven't seen mentioned in other reviews, is that each book thus far has a natural conclusion to its part of the tale. I find cliffhangers annoying but this and the first book both have a satisfying conclusion while leaving the story open for development. I feel like Thorensen respects his readers -- he certainly doesn't need the cliffhanger gimmick to get people to read the next installment. The stories are flat out great.

Gripping. Refreshing ratio of sci-fi to fantasy!

Gripping. Can't wait for the third book to come to Audible. Finished Book 2 in less than 2 days. I'm legitimately bummed that I started listening before this whole series is out on audible, because now I'm counting the days until the next release. The narrator takes an enthralling story and delivers a performance that reaffirms my respect for those capable of this level of artful storytelling. I really got a sense of anticipation and fear, sadness and joy. There were moments that gave me chills. I laughed out loud. Really interesting story and the narrator is perfectly suited to the books. If it wasn't already apparent, I strongly recommend this book, esp. if you're looking for that perfect ratio of sci-fi to fantasy.
