Things get dire for Royce, Hadrian, and the people they care for. In the Riyria Revelations, I actually quite liked Royce, but here, he is downright scary, and I much prefer naive and good-hearted Hadrian.
After the Crown Tower disaster, Royce and Hadrian find themselves a team, but there is still a lot they have to learn and accept about the respective other.
The church of Novron starts to stir and to wreathe their vile plots, and everybody suffers.
Of course, Tim Gerard Reynolds delivers in the way I have come to expect, and he certainly has advanced to my preferred narrator, at least when it comes to scifi and fantasy stories.
I'm so glad I discovered Michael's books, as they kept me entertained for many hours.
I'm looking forward to the next instalment in the Riyria Chronicles series, so I'm now taking a break and will listen to the third volume shortly before the 4th volume is launched.
