A kidnapped girl. Nations in conflict. Legends of an ancient kingdom. And one amateur thief finds himself at the center of it all.
Era cares only of surpassing his father's infamy as a master thief - until he stumbles onto a kidnapped girl and promises to return her home. Dreaming of a quick and easy reward, Era and his thieving partner Jem set off to return the girl to her wealthy father. However, when bounty hunters and elemental mercenaries attack to recapture the girl, her claims of ignorance begin to ring hollow. When the girl's own elemental talents are revealed, Era begins to question what else she may be hiding.
As Era fights off foe after foe with his untrained earth shaping skills, the temptation to simply collect the reward on her head sparks an inner conflict between his moral foundation and the future he has always wanted.

Very good and very imaginative, but not too much. The story has the right amount of twists and turns... the characters have the right amount of mystery and intrigue...
I'm looking forward for the next book in the series!

Great rookie effort! I forgot it was a first book
For me, yes. I on't have the time to read books, due to a busy schedule, but during business travel listen to them all the time. I am not saying the audio is better, just better for me.
Creative use of gifts that each character had. Good character development.
Aaron did a great job of capturing the personality of the characters with accents and voice intonation. I was not that fond of the voice chosen for Di, but as the story went on, it blended well.
I never have time to listen to any book in 1 sitting, but the story and acting were compelling for me to return over several days.
Looking forward to book 2. I liked the balance of humor and suspense.
