Publisher's Summary

When his experiment goes horribly wrong, leaving an innocent man dead, Ambrose leaves the Wizard's Guild low in confidence and filled with guilt, for a wilderness rife with dastardly hunters and the surrealist of creatures, in search of a new purpose in life.
In his search for redemption, Ambrose wanders to the campfire of Bertold, a brute of a man who harbors a sadistic fixation with the torture of Bloodsuckers. This discovery opens a door for Ambrose in which he is forced to take a stand. A woman, the most beautiful Ambrose has ever laid eyes upon, is bolted to the ground by her wrists and ankles as Bertold waits for the sun to rise and roast her alive.
The wizard, displaying instant sympathy, calls his morals and magic into action in a bid to rescue the Bloodsucker from the brutal hands of the hunter...and what follows leads Ambrose on the most dangerous adventure of his life.

A horrific wizard story

I've read many stories about wizard's and this one took me by surprise in many places. Quite a few situations in this story is unexpected and uconventional. However, it's an entertaining story in every way and will keep you listening.

Ambrose is a wizard followed by good intentions and bad luck. He fails many times in using his magic the intended way and that will make you smile and sometimes laugh.

I couldn't quite figure out the plot in this story and it could go one way or the other in my head. I had a problem with the term 'bloodsuckers' - just call them for what they are - vampires!

You'll meet many other creatures, that will give Ambrose the time of the day. You'll also get some light romance and I don't think this book is for kids, because you'll run into some horror elements.

Jake Urry did a great narration once again and he always gives me the chills when he comes up with his horror voices. When Jake is narrating he is a wolf in sheep's clothing! From the sweet and good Ambrose to a horrible creature makes me gasp, when Jake is performing!

Any additional comments?


This is an adventure story about retribution and second chances.

Ambrose, the male lead, is on a soul searching journey where he encounters Florentina, a vampire, who
is in search of a cure for her "infection".

An odd romance develops between the pair, however, their paths must split but they hope to meet up again soon.

Overall, this was an interesting book, the story had a little bit of everything and was quit an entertaining read or listen.


Jake Urry did a good job with the narration.
