  1. Well, I had the first 2 books on my tbr, while I was waiting for the final book to come out. It took so long though that I gave up. Maybe if the whole trilogy really impresses you I might consider adding it all back. We’ll see I guess…

  2. I’ve been tempted by this series for so long and seeing reviews pop up for the following two, but not reading them in case of spoilers, has kept me fairly distant. Reading this review has me wanting to read it now.

    It’s a toss up between this and The Gutter Prayer for my next audio book 🤔

    Fine review, good sir.

    1. I greatly appreciate the kind words, Aaron! I’m quite happy to put this back on your radar and I hope that it will be a journey to remember when you get the chance to try it out.

      As for your dilemma. I would’ve said The Gutter Prayer since I LOVED that one even more (it’s on my top 5 books read in 2019 too). Whichever you pick, I hope you have a good time, good sir! 😀

  3. Not long ago I read a very enthusiastic review of the complete trilogy, which prompted me to add it to my “wanted” list, and now your comments on book 1 have conviced me I have to read this saga, because it’s singing a “siren song” I cannot ignore… 😀
    Thank you so much for sharing this!!!!

  4. The importance of world building cannot be understated, especially in genres such as fantasy and science fiction and even more essential if it’s an ongoing series. I really must take a dive into some fantasy one day, I always favour science fiction but never opposed to broadening literary horizons! Ace review as ever my friend!
