Read full description of the books:
This book has a really awful title but the one thing it does have going for it is that it provides a fairly accurate description of the plot!
Betrayal has left young warrior Seth a slave in a city far from his home. Things only get worse for him when his new master summons a demon and asks it to kill him! Lucky for Seth the demon is not such a fan of its master and with Seth's help they break the summoning circle and the demon kills its former master. That would have been pretty cool on its own but as an added bonus the demon passes all the memories and skills of the one it kills onto its new master, Seth! Which is good as the master he just killed was an important man in the Dark Guild and Seth soon finds himself a hunted man.
The story was OK. Seth was just about likeable enough to root for, most of the time. The demons were pretty cool but their world and purpose was not all that well explored. One of the better aspects of the story was Seth's battle not to slip into moral depravity. The demon needed to be feed constantly and each new kill brought Seth more and more power. He had to guard against becoming just the sort of man his old master had been.
The ideas behind the story were good but I'm not quite sure the writing was up to the same standard. It was not bad but I always had that feeling that things were nearly working rather than actually working.
Another annoying flaw was the fact that this book ended on a massive cliffhanger. Sometimes I'm OK with that if it seems a natural finishing point for a story but this felt more like it just stopped mid-stride! I notice there is three books in this series. I'm of the opinion right now that it was probably one large book split into three parts so the author could bleed three "buys" for it! Though I guess it could also be because people are more likely to give a shorter self-published book a chance than they are a large one. I must admit I'd probably not have committed to this had it been 20 hours long rather than 7 hours long in audio.
All in all this was an average dark adventure fantasy. I might buy the next instalment if it gets an audio release or I might not.
Rating: 3 stars.
Audio Note: I was not a big fan of Tom Adams. I did warm to him a bit once the story got going but I'm just never going to be a fan of Scottish accents in my fantasy reads.

Read information about the authorMy name is Julius, I'm an indy Fantasy writer, from Australia now living in london or somewhere like Cambodia or Thailand if the visa office is giving me a hard time. My aim as a writer is to create original things. Maybe a new creature or power or look at something like vampires and demons in different ways.
The dream would be in 20 years people i don't know are making movies and writing books about something i originally came up with. Like Bram Stoker for vampires, or Romaro for zombies.
I write grimdark and gritty adventure fantasy. I like a hero with a heart of gold and a blood drenched sword. My favorite authors are Joe Abercrombie, H P Lovecraft and Tanith Lee. I have also clocked around 200 hours on skyrim and like fantasy games, i might write a lit-rpg book one day soon.
