The third book in the new epic fantasy series fans are comparing to David Gemmell and Raymond E. Feist. Lady Iskra and her followers have survived the onslaught of demons, forged powerful alliances, and are finally ready to wreck righteous vengeance on the Ascendant Empire. Yet even as they begin their endgame, a new danger arises that threatens to annihilate everything in its path, heretic or no: Tharok, the greatest peril to humanity since Ogri the Destroyer. The Siege of Abythos continues the action-packed new epic fantasy series that began with The Path of Flames - an adrenaline-fueled debut of sin casting mages, heresy, and cold-blooded betrayal in a land where the deepest buried secrets are finally resurfacing to destroy the world.

Phil Tucker has done it again! I was a little skeptical about the series being able to keep me enamored for 3 whole books as it doesn’t happen very often, but I just could not stop listening to this one! More excellent world building, more excellent character arcs, and more excellent views in to the inner workings and life of people in various countries! One thing that I liked about this book in particular is everything is starting to tie in together. Tharok is finally part of the main storyline, and Audsley gets all kind of page time. Audsley has really changed and grown a lot through the course of the last 3 books and I’m glad for it. He was a bit of a whining, simpering coward in the first book and now he is large and in charge, running things like someone of his intelligence should be!
Noah Michael Levine… Keep up the good work man. The only bad thing I even have to say about this book is that some of the female voices kind of start to blend together if you listen for like, 6 hours at a time. All in all, still an amazing job and I look forward to listening to your rendition of the next book.
Overall, still my new favorite book series. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in the next one, and maybe someday I’ll get to meet Phil Tucker and get his autograph. There’s just so much in this book to be appreciative for, and I truly hope you take this book series into account when you are deciding on your next epic series.
As always, the audio quality is top notch, not a single problem with it.
