The book dosent really do much that the first book didn't already do other than provide perspective on the city and introduce primordial energy.
Things like setting up daenerys or whatever as the capitals baddie or the land across the sea had an emperor that wanted to become a god; explaining resources are expensive because of competing guilds and are fluctuated because of the influx of adventures are arguably done better in the first book, I'd prefer the second book to be released instead.
It's a rehash of the first book with a detective/amnesia take , relabeled as an expanded universe.
The first book was great. I finished this one but did not enjoy it. The story does not carry on and does not have the same feel
Would you listen to Hell to Pay again? Why?
Only a couple of hours in to this book and it seems to be on par quality wise with the first Ascend Online. Just a notice that this is NOT a continuation of the first book, but a story regarding a different character entirely.
Only reason I am writing this is I was quick to order this book and expecting it to continue where the first left off. Slight disappointed as I was expecting something different, but the story so far is strong and I have been enjoying the listen.
If you enjoyed the first book, go ahead and purchase this one, just know this is a different story arc.

so like a lot of readers/listeners i was very annoyed with the totally new character arch. I expected the short book 1.5 to just not live up and be a money grab. While I don't agree with the complete new arch with no added content to the main story, the story is done in a great way that makes me believe Luke is expanding his original story from what was originally planned wile keeping solid quality of the new books. I, and it seems most readers, would much prefer continuing the multiple arcs in one book "game of thrones" style. I see why this isn't possible after making the first book and expanding to this one so i can't knock Luke hard because the execution was great.
as a stand alone book it is very good. It fits the world vey well and the characters are totally unique from the characters in the first book in more ways than just being new characters. the story is very solid and brings a new look onto the world as well as expanding the first book.

Luke’s performance is great as always but this book is a bit of a let down - it’s the same story as the first with a few cosmetic changes. Not bad for a casual listen but missing the sense of wonder that made the first one so good.
Another grate story with more of this amazing universe explained and yet still more left to explore.
The naration is of good quality and easy to listen to.
