Publisher's Summary

Some say that in the city of Orlyn, godhood is on sale to the highest bidder. Thousands flock to the city each year, hoping for a chance at immortality.
Lydia Hastings is a knowledge sorcerer, capable of extracting information from anything she touches. When she travels to Orlyn to validate the claims of the local faith, she discovers a conspiracy that could lead to a war between the world's three greatest powers. At the focal point is a prisoner who bears a striking resemblance to the long-missing leader of the pantheon she worships.
Rescuing the prisoner would require risking her carefully cultivated cover - but his execution could mean the end of everything Lydia holds dear.

I did want to like it

I started this book with hopes it would be great, but found the characters flat, the action dull, and interactions predictable and shallow.
The Magic system sounds cool, but I wish they did more with it.
the storyline was also so slow I didn't realize we were through till it ended. I kept waiting for it get better and kept hopeing it would grab my attention and take me along for a thrill. it never seemed to get there.
I did manage to get lost several times with my attention wandering because it was so boring. this forced me to backtrack and try listening again many times. it just wasn't worth the effort.

I love Nick Podehl and will continue to support him, but this book just wasn't for me.

It was alright

It was alright, just alright. If your looking for the next big thing keep looking but your looking for a read that fills a gap inbetween series this might do.

Very good, but not as good as Arcane Ascension

All of Rowe and Podehl's good points are still here but a lot of the magic just feels a little less complete. The interpersonal relationships are still fun.

Really good story

This was a great story and I am really looking forward to where it goes. Enough happening to keep you entertained and guessing but not over the top with hard to follow concepts some books get bogged down with. cant wait to start the second.

Disapointed

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like a book that very detail driven then this book is for you.

What could Andrew Rowe have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

To be more enjoyable for me a bit more action would be good the action that was in the book was good just not enough for my taste

How did the narrator detract from the book?

all in all the narrator did a good job

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Mostly disappointment and when the book end i was left with a feeling it was lacking
