Publisher's Summary

In a war that shook the earth, the six gods of Nendor defeated their brother Neldin, God of Evil. For 3,000 years, Nendor and the Seven Kingdoms have known peace and prosperity and Neldin's evil was nearly forgotten.
But then Meglar, wizard-king of Zargon, unleashes the dark magic of the underworld and creates an army of creatures to carry out his master's will. One by one, the sovereign realms fall as a new war between the gods threatens to engulf Nendor.
Leading the opposition to Meglar is Grand Master Farrell. Young and untried, Farrell carries a secret that could hold the key to defeating Meglar - or it could destroy the world.
Farrell is joined by Nerti, queen of the unicorns, and Miceral, an immortal muchari warrior the Six have chosen as Farrell's mate. As Farrell and his new allies make plans to counter Neldin's evil, Meglar forces their hand when he invades a neighboring kingdom. Rushing to help their ally, Farrell and Miceral find themselves in the middle of the battle. Cut off from help, Farrell attempts an untried spell that will either turn the tide or cost him and Miceral their lives.

excellent story awesome narrator

This is my first time reading/listening to any of Andrew Gordon's work. Even with the number of times I have looked for high fantasy LGBTQ I've never come across him. I am very glad to have rectified the situation now. Thankfully I am a HUGE fan of Joel Leslie which is how I found this book.
The story is engaging and the world is well built. I do feel that the back story could have been better discribed inside the story. The small section in the blurb about the war between the gods really isn't much to go on when they are such a critical part of the story. As this is a series however, hopefully this will be rectified in future books.
I really wish they would allow half ratings as the story really deserves a 4.5 imo. The reason I took off that bit was the pacing of the story. The beginning and end are full of action but the middle drags a little.
Even so I think it is an excellent book narrated by an awesome performer. If you enjoy high fantasy then this is a must for your collection.
