As Bozek and Ranamayve go their separate ways, they each must hold onto the glimmer of hope that their Devotion will hold true. As they journey to join his ogre tribe, Bozek and his elf friend Garik, encounter hardships, unlike anything they have endured before. While Ranamayve attempts to convince the complacent elves to join forces with other Races against Emperor Charr’s tyranny, she struggles with her grief, and loneliness—hoping Bozek will soon return victorious. But at a growing sense of unease, Ranamayve leaves her homeland of Elavae to find Bozek and Garik, and defeat Emperor Charr once and for all. As the battle at Medgar looms closer, Bozek has to accept each part of himself for who he is and Ranamayve must fight for the Devotion they share.
Audiofile Magazine Review

Narrator Kirby Heyborne continues the love story of Bozek, an ogre, and Ranamayve, an elf, which was begun in ALLIANCE. Heyborne presents the fantasy world of Leusandia in a level, rather mournful tone, which matches the timeless, distant nature of the elves. In speech, Bozek has a slight, unspecified accent, while Ranamayve's voice is lighter and firm, establishing her royal authority. After they pledge their troth, or "devotion," Bozek leaves Ranamayve to attack the cruel Emperor Charr. During battle scenes, Heyborne raises his voice to a mock yell, which is a little jarring against his calm reading. His best voices are those of the menacing, throaty dragon and the emperor, who sounds like Star Wars' Emperor Palpatine. Heyborne's reading will please high-fantasy listeners who like a mix of adventure and romance. C.A. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
