Publisher's Summary

Ancient legend tells of an army of knights that will remain sleeping until the last days. The knights are waking up. A homeless man is stalked by a pale, wraithlike creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Maimed animals and a host of suicides cluster around a mountain in Scotland. And deep beneath the cobbled streets of Oxford, a malicious hoard besieges a hidden city. Freya Reynolds is a university student with a touch of OCD and an obsession with myth and folklore. Daniel Tully is living rough on the streets of Oxford, waging a secret war against an enemy only he can identify. Years ago, they found themselves in a world few know is real. They have since gone their separate ways and tried to put that adventure behind them. But the mythical world is now bleeding into our reality—a dark spiritual evil that is manifesting itself in forgotten corners of the British Isles. Alex Simpson is a Scottish police officer who specializes in hunting mythical creatures. Together, they must confront the past, the present, and points beyond to defeat the ultimate threat to humanity. Nothing they’ve seen so far prepares them for what The Realms Thereunder.

Slow start but superior ending!

This story starts off a little slow and complicated. But as the story progresses it all comes together and turns out to be an awesome story! I look forward to book 2!

Avoid unless you are a teen or younger

Yet another YA novel that is not labelled as such

The story is good and well written for the target audience..

The narrator is a different story, His normal reading voice is quite good but his attempts at Scottish & English accents are cringe-worthy.

Overall, a stumbling start for a possibly great series.

Very Poor.

I really struggled to finish this one. In fact, all I did after chapter 11 was skip through to the end. The story was weak and the narration was absolutely terrible. This guy Dikeos sounded like he was reading to four year olds with his nasally voice.

Very bad accents spoiled the listen

This reader (Gary Dikeos) has the worst and most irritating UK accents I have ever heard. The great shame is that he has a very pleasant natural soft American accent. His Scottish accents alternate between some sort of Olde English, cockney and goodness only knows what else. The book was spoiled by the narration.
