Publisher's Summary

You have been endowed a gift, Lucas. You have been entrusted with a sickle and a staff, whose use and inherent powers you have only seen glimpses of in your short life. These powers will steadily increase, condense, sharpen, and grow. They will progressively submit to the dominion of your command. As with all tools, instruments, weapons, and power, these have the potential to be misused or not, to be properly handled, or not. By definition forceful instruments are morally neutral, and obediently perform at the behest of their master, whatever be his will, disposition or purpose; whether noble or evil inclinations, they serve dutifully....

Pink Floyd fans will get it

Interesting concept, but I found myself getting lost and asking "what did I miss?"

The first part of the story was really good. After chapter 7, I kept going back to review chapters I had finished and still never really grasped the storyline again. When it was over, I thought "meh."

The best part of the audiobook...the narrator! David Bosco is spot on with his British accent and does an excellent job of switching between characters. I have found a new favorite to look forward to hearing.

Great narration and an interesting book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this book was enjoyable, but kind of odd. The narrator likened this to a rock opera when I picked this one up and that is not a bad description, I think. I like the musical influences throughout the story and I like the period setting of mid-twentieth century UK, but the dialog didn't always... feel right... to me. I did really like the relationship between Lucas and Raven, it kind of made him more relatable for me somehow... Anyway, hands down, the narrator made this experience for me. I will happily give most books a try that David Bosco narrates.
