Publisher's Summary

Some say that in the city of Orlyn, godhood is on sale to the highest bidder. Thousands flock to the city each year, hoping for a chance at immortality.
Lydia Hastings is a knowledge sorcerer, capable of extracting information from anything she touches. When she travels to Orlyn to validate the claims of the local faith, she discovers a conspiracy that could lead to a war between the world's three greatest powers. At the focal point is a prisoner who bears a striking resemblance to the long-missing leader of the pantheon she worships.
Rescuing the prisoner would require risking her carefully cultivated cover - but his execution could mean the end of everything Lydia holds dear.

Original and engaging

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Forging Divinity was an excellent read, so I couldn't resist picking up the audio version once it became available. Mr. Podehl really helps to bring the story and its characters to life.

What did you like best about this story?

One of the things I like best about Forging Divinity is the magic system. Where many other books leave their magic unexplained or without consequence, Mr. Rowe has written a setting in which delving into the complicated - and often somewhat dangerous - varieties of magic in the world causes some very serious effects.

Any additional comments?

This book is an excellent read/listen. As the first installation in the War of Broken Mirrors series, Forging Divinity delivers a story that is engaging and fast-paced with an abundance of clever, well-written characters and an entirely unique setting.

Definitely a keeper

Any additional comments?

I immediately was swept into this book right from the beginning. The world and character development were nicely done. I like the idea of the use of magic causing a physical cost to the user. The action scenes were incredibly engaging. Nick Podehl is as masterful as ever. I had a hard time putting this one down. Moving on to the second book and I already can't wait for the third.

Very good, but not as good as Arcane Ascension

All of Rowe and Podehl's good points are still here but a lot of the magic just feels a little less complete. The interpersonal relationships are still fun.
