To stop the end of the world, they must defy a god.
Three epic books in one audio bundle full of dark magic, war, unforgettable characters, and political intrigue.
Long ago, powerful sorcerers stole the power of a god. Only the courage and sacrifice of great heroes stopped them from conquering the known world.
They thought it was over. But the god who was robbed so long ago remained. He swore that long after the heroes were dead, when his power returned, he would have his vengeance on all of humanity.
Now, the time of his prophecy is at hand. A band of elite desert warriors crosses the sea, hoping faith and courage will be enough to turn aside the coming apocalypse. Their leader, Prelate Yazid Valerian, seeks the mythical city of sorcerers.
There, he believes, he will find allies and answers. But the city has been hidden for centuries for a reason. And he never expects that he and his men may spark the very doom they seek to prevent....

Finally, the story settles in and starts to get good. By the end of book 1 I'm actually pretty invested in what's going on. I like the idea that the supposedly weak country is run by a group of powerful sorcerers who aren't interested in the monotony of governance and would rather let a puppet empress take care of that.
But book 2 is just so tedious. One character after another is brought more into focus and you can't remember who they are or what the people they are plotting against stand for. None of them are particularly likeable or interesting so they all start to blend. There's a whole second story, introduced in book 1 of Ahkmed, that never goes anywhere. And the original storyline that ended book 1 is just pushed into the background and there's almost no progression in it.
I'm just starting book 3 and I'm just not invested at all. Listening to it on Audible, and finally bumped it up to 1.3x speed to try to get to an interesting part and finally giving it up because I'm not retaining anything anymore. I hope Elgar(not sure of the spelling because I have it on Audible) gets defeated, but I won't be there for it. I'm giving it a 3 because the narrator is really good, and another point because I think there's something interesting there, it's just too tedious for me to get there.
The books are great. The characters are alive, you can understand their motives and actions. The dialogue is clever and funny, the world believable. Some scenes have enough tension and suspense to make you forget you're driving in a small town way above the speed limit (10/10 would do again). Also, I couldn't guess the ending, not even at 90% of the whole trilogy, which is rare for me.
My only minor problem was that the timeline isn't always linear which can make some events confusing if you're only listening and have no way to go back and check some facts.
All in all, it's a solid 5 stars and I'll hunt down any other books from this author.
