VANT HU’L IS CURSED. Dragged to the center of a wasteland by a ruthless malevolence, the legendary warrior discovers a cavern filled with devious riddles and fiendish traps. Upon solving the labyrinth, he is confronted by a hideous creature. A beast with unimaginable abilities. A being of unspeakable evil… DEATH.

Without a shred of clemency, the demigod presents Vant with a choice: do his sinister bidding out in the world, or suffer an eternity of horrifying torment. Thus begins Vant’s quest out of the badlands, through the hostile wilderness, into the clutches of twisted townships, and finally toward conflict with the vile stewards of a corrupted civilization.

But Vant will not go it alone. In the midst of his journey, he develops an unlikely companionship with a clever and venturesome teenage girl, the expert survivalist Skii Tavee. They also form an alliance with two newfound⁠—but questionable⁠—⁠companions: Kram Grammie, the sneaky con man who is as crafty as he is klepto, and an off-kilter eccentric bizarrely known as The World’s Worst Magician. United, they set out to dispatch their foes, rescue the innocents caught in the crossfire, and unite the forces of a world gone astray, all while reconciling with their own haunting pasts.

Mortal Enemy is an experience like no other. It is a relentless whirlwind of action and adventure. A tale of conflicted heroes and dastardly villains. A story rich with darkness and struggle, yet filled with devilishly wicked humor. It is jam-packed with nightmarish scenarios, fantastical environments, rich mythology, incredible weapons, unique technologies, and characters dripping with personality… with shocking surprises awaiting you at every turn.

Come experience Death… if you dare.

I'll be honest it took me a good 6 episodes to get into this and if it wasn't for listening to the trailer first I would've probably given up. So very glad I didn't it's an amazing production, I binged it for 3 days. A good story with great acting and it's the first I've listened to with a narrator. A post apocalyptic fantasy story read and acted so very well by a big cast. There was a teaser to a follow up and I only hope there is.
If I have one gripe about Mortal Enemy, it’s that the humor is pretty juvenile. There’s only so many references to penises and farts I can take in an otherwise fairly serious work before I want to yell enough already. And yet the last scene still manages to squeeze one more in. But if you can get past the Shrek-like need to pepper in jokes about bodily functions, there’s a lot to like about this heavily BioShock-inspired mix of science fiction and fantasy. The cast is a murderer’s row of TV and film actors. Vant Hu’l is a likable hero with a solid moral compass and the rest of the cast, especially Grammie, get to regularly steal the show as they explore this weird grotesque world. Chris Pine plays the Mayor and he sounds like he's having a blast at it. The book has not much on its mind other than entertaining you and it’s in the lovingly crafted, crowd pleasing action sequences that it truly excels. There’s a scene over a magma pool that had me on the edge of my seat. It’s a fun ride and I am amazed at the generosity of it being available for free.
