The Gearheart: Artifice Ep 25 & 26

The Gearheart

By:  Alex White

Format:  Podcast; 28 minutes

Genre:  Fantasy

Episode:  25 of 37

Jonathan matches his strength to the Queensmen as Darren encounters one of his own.  Meanwhile, Cog is pursued by Seekers in the alley.  Can they get away?

My Thoughts & Summary:
Things are getting steep here!  All the crew members are in trouble, by the company they work for and trusted... The Seekers are now arresting, or attempting to be taken into custody.  We see Darren use his magic in an opposite way than we have already seen.  Jonathan tries to fight with three Queensman, when suddenly one spontaneously combusted!  But, there is someone helping him.  Cog is being followed, by agents and attempted to remove her pendant to bring her in unconscious.  She is saved by the man she had decapitated in the caves.

Things are really moving.  The music in the background, and hearing different voices really adds to the feel of growing excitement, and thrill of the story line!  Things are getting deep, and I need a whole day (or two) to just finish off listening to this series.  It's coming to that speedy part, where you don't want to put the book down, yes that is what I'm feeling now.

Isabelle has a surprise for us here, and I am wondering what will happen with her now.  It is really neat to see Darren use his powers in this way.  I guess healing can go two directions.  And he seems to still want Cog.  Cog is in a fighting mood, as she is cornered while wondering the city, although she has picked the place where to confront the followers.  I had to chuckle at her savior. lol.  The man she had decapitated, while carrying his head. hee hee.

Jonathan gets a second chance and does battle with the Queensmen.  What will be the outcome?

My Thoughts & Summary:
We are in the mists of battle, our crew of Seekers against the Queensmen, both loving children of the Seeress... when she was alive.  Now the different categories of her children are turning and fighting each other.  Isabelle makes a shocking, recovery?  With flames engulfing her.  Jonathan and Isabelle fight the Queensmen, and Jonathan calls on Audun Slade for help, trying to use his powers and hold his overtaking control back.

There is more than one inner battle going on along with the physical battles we are seeing.  Isabelle has transcended into something new.  She has become the flame.  Wow!  Jonathan is battling with Audun, who is trying to convince Jonathan he's not meant to be a warrior, that Audun will take over.  Jonathan fights thanks to Isabelles' strength and for Isabelle.  Jonathan finds he is in Auduns armor with his powerful sword.  Only to lose it when his hand is severely damaged.

Jonathan and Isabelle are against greater odds.  Will they be able to fight back the powerful Queensmen?  Will they be able to get out?  Such a huge battle here at the Seeress' home.

  1. You are really making me want to do more audio!

    1. Melisa (Books&Things) - Thank you for always stopping by. :) And one of these days I'll get you into the audio, and podcasting. :D Thank you!

  2. From the post I take it that this is just one of many episodes? Would they eventually release a whole version of the story? Because I don't like waiting...

    1. Cherry, yes, this is 2 of the 37 total episodes. I'm so glad to say that all 37 episodes are available to listen through at your convenience. It's nice that the story was done a few years back, so I didn't have to wait for episodes to come, just for me to get to them. :)
