Now, as far as the book, it was pretty good, not great. Enough typos to make them irritating but not enough to make me stop reading. In fact in book four I highlighted and corrected them as I came across them, that's how annoying they were.
The characters lack depth but by book four they had developed a little more. The most interesting characters, however, are introduced later in the series and given very little attention. That's a shame because they could have added a lot more to the books.
Overall, if I hadn't realized at the end of book four, with nothing resolved, there would be no more I would have recommended this series. Since I didn't write this review until after I read all four books, I can't recommend it. I understand waiting for sequels, but nine years? Really? Mr. Cooper, what happened?
Then I was reading reviews of the 4th book. Many people liked the book, but it seems the author left the 4th book on a cliffhanger and hasn't written the 5th book yet. The last book was written in 2007. As of writing this review, that was 10 years ago!
Doesn't make me feel so bad I lost interest in the series after the 2nd book. ;-)
I really enjoyed listening to "The God Decrees". I've always enjoy stories that are set in the middle ages. Where wizards and magic are a part of day to day life. I like to get lost in the fantasy world of galloping horse rides in the middle of crazy all out battles of "Good vs Evil". With "Good" kicking ass even if it may be at the last minute. I'm also enjoying that the author has a slow romance started between Julia and Lord Keverin. It is nice that they both are falling in love from a distance. It really sets the tone for a romance in the series.
My favorite scene was Julia trying to practice magic on her own. I just wanted to yell "Don't do it!" but of course she did. Or when the 1st major battle started. Julia found herself in a daze of confusion when a enemy solider comes running her way. She figured out magic in a quick hurry than. I could just see her looking at her hand thinking "What the???" That was great.
I really love it when a story comes to life for a reading/listener like this one does. One minute you are feeling sorry for Julia getting pulled away from her dream of the Olympics. To being unamused with the priest for talking nasty about Julia to Lord Keverin.
I can't wait to book 2. I'm dying to see what happens next. This is a book series that just never slows down.
I always find myself amazed with the narrator Mikael Naramore. He is so good with the different voices for each character. His characters just come alive for a listener. I've listened to a couple different books he has narrated. I don't think he has reused a voice yet.
Would I recommend this series? Yes
Would I listen to is again! Yes
All in all, I thought the "God Decrees" had an interesting plot, was well presented and interesting enough to make me want to read the next book in the series .
Anthione is besieged and the unexpected happens, catalysing a series of astounding events. This adventure is fast paced with enough action and terror. The plot twists and turns and is totally unpredictable. If you enjoy fantasy with a medieval feel, this book is for you. It is well written!

cliff-hanger which is always a plus in my opinion. A good read and worth the time.
