Publisher's Summary

They are the fatemarked. Misunderstood. Worshipped. Hated. Murdered at birth. Their time to step into the light has come.
An ancient prophecy foretold their coming, the chosen few who will bring peace to a land embroiled in a century of mistrust and war. When kings start dying, that hope and belief swiftly turns to fear. Roan Loren is one of the fatemarked, but has hidden his mark of power his entire life, fearing the damage it might cause to those around him.
A great evil is coming. He can't hide anymore.
In the spirit of fantasy epics like Throne of Glass and The Lord of the Rings, enter a world of magic and dragons, kings and queens, and victory and defeat, during a time when honor and valor still meant something.

Starts off strong but goes downhill

I like this type of story, young characters that grow and become great warriors. However, this story starts out in this direction, and goes downhill and then picks up speed to level out to a repetitive storyline. The use of the phrases, his heart skips a beat, blood ran cold, truth died on his lips..... I get it. I listened for 10 hours of this book, and then switched to music. This book could have been cut in half by just stop repeating the same old self loathing quotes. Very disappointed.

The reviews made me hopeful- the story fell flat

Not until the postludes did I feel anything for these characters. The story was not gripping and if not for the excellent performance of the reader I wouldn’t of made it through. You fooled me again Audible.

Great read!

This is the first fantasy book I have read outside of JR Tolkien's works and I loved it! Very entertaining and character rich. Looking forward to delving into the next book.
