Publisher's Summary

"The world feels oddly strained, like a line pulled too taunt and apt to snap, smashing everything in its path."
Master Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain have survived every attempt to stop them, but their enemies are determined to kill Mari, the only one who can save her world from a storm of destruction. As armies begin to gather and cities seethe with tension, Mari, Alain, and their friends must prepare to confront the storm in the place it first appeared: the broken kingdom of Tiae.
The dangers facing them demand perilous raids, tough battles, and more than a little piracy. Beating the Mechanics Guild and the Mage Guild that have controlled the world of Dematr for centuries will require an unprecedented alliance under Mari's command of rebellious Mechanics, Mages, and common folk who know that together they can change the world, but separately they will all lose.

Most satisfactory of the series so far

The world in which these stories are set is really starting to work well. The characters are forming better and the cast of regulars makes the whole thing read better. I'm very glad I persevered and I'm really looking forward to book 5.

Very good saga each next book better than previous

What made the experience of listening to The Pirates of Pacta Servanda the most enjoyable?

Interesting Story - in general. Some humor but not too much. Well narrated. Overall good book for Sunday afternoon... or any time you like.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mages - all of them - so many people with the almost "Asperger like disorder". (I mean it in very good way! - mine best friend has AD). I must say that this is second time I've liked mages in any story I've read.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Without spoilers: I'll say only this: interaction between mages and mechanics in well constructed world with good plot. Do you need more? I just can't decide with scene ...

Any additional comments?

I can recommend entire The Pillars of Reality series If you liked previous Jack Campbell books you'll not be disappointed.
