    I did not like this book at all, despite normally enjoying swords and sorcery stories. I had to listen to it at 1.5x-2x speed just to get through it so that I could say i gave it an honest chance. The main rub was that none of the characters acted believably. Beware to potential listeners; your eyes may become sore from all of rolling they will be doing as you listen 14.5 hours about a horny genocidal superhuman man and his sex objects (read: literally all main female characters and most of the other named ones) making their way through this unfinished and unsatisfying story. This story might be leading up to something more interesting, but based on this story I will not continue the series. The book feels like an author of smarmy romance took a shot at writing a fantasy story geared exclusively to unmarried young men that want to read juicy details about sex with elves and royalty. It seems like so much more attention was paid to telling us about sexual desires and encounters than was paid to the actual plot. There were a couple of decent scenes where an interesting problem was overcome, but those represented an depressingly small portion of the book. There was nearly no character development, and this makes sense in that the characters did not really act like humans to begin with. Like I said, this was the biggest rub for me. I have listened to a lot of fantasy and science fiction, and comparatively Destroyer feels like an ill-defined quest with few interesting problems to solve populated by wonky caricatures of people. The book closes in a way that resolves no sub-plots and feels very unsatisfying.
