Performance and Production

Destroyer of Worlds is performed by Tim Gerard Reynolds and runs 16 hours and 46 minutes. Time Gerard Reynolds is a staple of fantasy audiobooks and he performs well here again. If you are a fan of Tim there is a lot here to like, personally I feel he could pick up the pace slightly, I am not one to up that playback speed, but I am tempted to speed up the playback here. Voicing of the Characters, Tim does well with a wide variety of characters, although many of the side character voices seem to blend in meetings and when talking to a crowd of people. Tim Gerard Reynolds puts out a solid performance backup by good production to combine for rating 4 out of 5. 



STORY


Destroyer of Worlds is the third entry into Larry Correia’s Saga of the Forgotten Warrior series. Following Ashok Vadal as he continues to protect the prophet, and fight as the General of the caste less rebellion. Also, Grand Inquisitor Omand Vokkan is making his plan and using the threat of Ashok to his advantage and start his plan to exterminate the caste less to start a nationwide uprising against the law and the capital. 


The story picks up with Grand Inquisitor Omand Vokkan watching as the Judges vote to start a practical study on the great extermination of the caste less, where he expects Ashok to travel eventually. Ashok now with the Prophet Thera say their good-byes to Jadish and Gouch who play only a small part of this book and end up going their separate ways. Ashok takes his sons of the black sword to the rebellion headquarters when he runs across a village that had been slaughtered by one of the bands of warriors that are roaming the country. Thera orders Ashok to go to war, the Sons of the Black Sword then chase down the warriors killing them all and then start a series of battles that will take the rebellion to new heights but not everyone is satisfied with the way the rebellion is being run and the rebellion starts to fracture. 

Omand seems to be managing his plans and ensuring they become reality, while Ashok is busy beating the warrior caste and watching for his brothers in the protectorate that are chasing him. The sons are brought fully into a war to protect the caste less from the warrior caste on orders of the capital. The Sons come into new fortress magic, thunder sticks, and the rebellion is given an added strengthened and the tactics of the newly formed army is built around the new magic. The newly formed army is pushing to the warriors to the limits when Lord Protector Devedas and his protectors catch up to Ashok. 

Destroyer of Worlds is an enjoyable book with a remarkable story that is building, my only critic would be that many of the characters and POV of the story furthers their characters but really could have been done in a much shorter manner or the parts could have been more important. That being said Larry Correia does a respectable job of tying those side characters together and I am excited to see what happens to the band in the next book. Destroyer of Worlds has great battle scenes and going through the duels at the end Larry Correia leaves me wanting more, I am wondering how the ending will fit into the story, but I cannot wait to find out. 4 out of 5. 





Overall

Larry Correa brings a large and interesting world full of history and mystery to life in Destroyer of Worlds. Tim Gerard Reynolds does a solid job taking that story and performing in a way that keeps you interested in for hours at a time. Between character POV story lines that mostly involve people moving around doing a lot of nothing and Tim Gerard Reynolds pacing there are times I really wanted the story to move along already! PLEASE! In the end I enjoyed Destroyer of Worlds and cannot wait to follow the adventures of Ashok as the series continues. 4 out of 5.
