Publisher's Summary

An evil stirs, casting a shadow across the Islands. Two men begin quests to find the source of the darkness. One is a young scholar, given no choice but to follow the path ahead. Tragedy shapes him, nearly driving him to despair; an inner struggle pervades his journey. The other is a warrior forced to the task through a sense of responsibility. His royal blood and his knighthood drive his course. Their searches, though separate, have the same goal: to find whatever or whoever may be responsible for the darkening of their world. This book tells the story of their journey and the creatures, both friend and foe, that they meet along the way.

Excellent story and excellent audio book

It's a unique world the author has created. The story keeps you interested for sure. I think the narrator did excellent. Very easy to listen to. I'll definitely be purchasing the second book in the series. This one leaves you hanging.

An Emerging Story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story appears to be a solid introduction to a rather interesting new world, yet its with a bit of wonder but with little passion, that we never quite get into the fun stuff. It builds to what I can only imagine would be an exciting and intriguing next chapter, but admittedly not a lot happens in this one. Its not very long, so was time well spent, admittedly just would have preferred there be more to the story rather than TO BE CONTINUED...

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Emerging Threat?

The wraiths are described in just enough detail to inspire awe at their monstrous visage, yet not so detailed as to derail the fear at their assaults.

What about Matt Ryan’s performance did you like?

He has a clear voice, easy to understand and follow. His pace needed a bit of development and the recording could have been cleaned up a bit. There is a slight squeak every now and again. But as a narrator he was comfortable and I would like to hear what he could do with a completed story.

Do you think An Emerging Threat needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It does because the story doesn't really end.
