Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Augum and friends Bridget and Leera dream of becoming warlocks. But with a kingdom in total chaos, it will take courage, sacrifice, and an iron will to make that dream come true. The lord of the legion, a vicious tyrant, has overthrown the king in a relentless and murderous quest for seven mythic artifacts - and Augum's mentor, the legendary Anna Atticus Stone, possesses one. While Augum struggles with demons from a painful childhood, a betrayal puts him, his friends, and his mentor through a harrowing ordeal that threatens to destroy them all... and change the course of history.
Arcane, the debut novel in the fantasy adventure series the Arinthian Line, follows three friends as they navigate an ancient, abandoned castle, endure grueling training, challenge old mysteries, and learn that a bond forged in tragedy might just be the only thing to save them from a ruthless enemy.

I liked this book.

This is a good book suitable for all ages. The target audience is really for younger audiences, though I'm in my fifties and I enjoyed it. I think that fans of Harry Potter will really like it. It's a little cookie cutter, but still good. The narration was great. I recommend this for young people and those that are young at heart.

So, so book, good voice acting

Any additional comments?

The book has a consistent flaw throughout...time. Everything happens quickly...the character shift emotions and concerns at light speed, people...large groups of people, traveling by cart what is impressed as large distances....at some point you just can't ignore these flaws. Thinking back, I think the entire book takes place is less than a week...yet the newbie apprentices are fixing walls, finding lost tunnels with spells. Add to this, that everything is easily fixed with magic...that doesn't seem to have any limits, rules..etc. The only redeeming quality to the book is Stefan Rudnicki. I would recommend holding onto your credits for another book.
