Publisher's Summary

Do you have the courage, the wits, and the skill to claim a dragon's hoard? If so, apply within . . . The sign is small, tucked into the corner of Mr. Clutter's bookshop window: “Adventurers Wanted. Apply Within.” No one but fifteen-year-old Alex Taylor even seems to notice it is there. And for Alex, who has wished for a change in his life, it is an irresistible invitation.Upon entering Mr. Clutter's shop, Alex is swept away on an incredible adventure to a faraway land filled with heroic warriors, mysterious elves, and hard-working dwarves. Alex becomes the eighth man in a band of adventurers seeking the lair of Slathbog the Red - an evil dragon with a legendary treasure. Along the way, Alex and his new friends must battle dangerous trolls and bandits, face undead wraiths, and seek the wisdom of the Oracle in her White Tower. Alex's adventure takes him to distant and exotic lands where he learns about courage, integrity, honor, and, most importantly, friendship.

Great Story!

We picked this book up in a bookstore for my 11 year old son and after he read this one and the next in the series, I asked how he liked them...his faced lit up and he went on and on about magic and elves, swords and wizards. I love a good fantasy novel, so I decided to give it a try on Audible. Wow! Great story, great performance! EB Stevens did a fantastic job of mixing different accents, octaves, and tones to make each character their own. Well done and highly recommend it to anyone!

Great book for all ages. Hard to put down

Where does Adventurers Wanted, Book 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a book that is great for kids and adults. I really enjoyed it and it was very well put together. Already 3/4 down with book 2 and it is as good as the first one.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Alex Taylor is a must for the best characters. He has honor without measure.


Have you listened to any of E. B. Stevens’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No first time I have listened to E.B. Steven's but will keep listening to him going forward.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes the way the world was built with the limits on magic and adventures was great.

- Ryan "I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%."
