29 hours and 34 minutes. What a whale of an audiobook! After reading Master of Sorrows last month, I knew I couldn’t wait long to dive into the sequel. The series is billed as the backstory of a villain, where we see an evil God reincarnated coming to accept who he is to become. But I would argue that it’s the story of several fabulous dark characters on a crash course for domination. This sequel gives us some serious bada** character developments.
We of course learn more about Annev as he develops from a student into a master, a child into a man, a human into a god. But Myjun just may be my favorite evil woman hell bent on revenge, her story is insanely fabulous. I loved how much detail we got about her growing into her evil powers. We get great progression of all of the side characters and can begin to envision how they will all come together in the end.
This is fantasy superbly written with villains as gratifying as those in LOTR or ASOIAF, if you like that kind of thing… and I do!!
