Just WOW!!!

I was a little bit daunted by the length of the audiobook, but Carlson has constructed a world and history with so much depth and detail that I was disappointed when the book was finished and now cannot wait to experience the next one. This is the beginning of an epic story of dark fantasy. Mysteries and intrigue abound as layers of story are exposed one after the next. Both foes and allies are hiding in plain sight as the story moves between the main characters who are heading toward reunions both joyous and heartbreaking on their quests to find out what happened to their people and, in the process, trying to fulfill their heritage and destiny. Pick up the book and move it to the top of your 'to read' list. You won't be disappointed.

If you like Lord of the Rings you will love this book

This book was amazing! I generally don't like when books that are narrated by the author however Jean Lowe Carlson did a fantastic job with all of the characters and voices in this audiobook. It was a pleasure to listen to and easy to follow. I enjoyed listening to it so much that I couldn't stop one day for six hours. This book it's reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones series with a touch of Outlander. At about 18 hours long, it is also a good buy for your money. I can't wait for book two to come out.
