Publisher's Summary

Raised and trained in seclusion at a secret fortress on the edge of the northern wilds of the Kingdom of Ashai, a young warrior called Rezkin is unexpectedly thrust into the outworld when a terrible battle destroys all that he knows. With no understanding of his life’s purpose and armed with masterful weapons mysteriously bestowed upon him by a dead king, Rezkin must travel across Ashai to find the one man who may hold the clues to his very existence.
Determined to adhere to his last orders, Rezkin extends his protection to an unlikely assortment of individuals he meets along the way, often leading to humorous and poignant incidents.
As if pursuing an elite warrior across a kingdom, figuring out who he is and why everyone he knows is dead, and attempting to find these so-called friends and protect them is not enough, strange things are happening in the kingdom. New dangers begin to arise that threaten not only Rezkin and his friends, but possibly everyone in Ashai.

Listen to the whole book in one day

First let me start with for you masochist who like your characters to suck and get beat up and fail the whole book this book is not for you.
Who in there right mind wants to read about a loser I'll tell you everything one who gave this book 1 star. They all complain about one thing the the main character is too good. How bout i write a one page book that you will love. Jim sucks. Jim get stabbed. Jim lives to suck again. The end. Hope you enjoyed. I read books like that and i guess i feel how you feel about this one cause those books had almost full stars too. But seriously why do you want you characters to suck.

Yes yes yes. This is my favorite kind of book. Where a badass comes in from no where and does what badasses do be a badass. So if you like the same this book is for you.

Wow!! This book...

Any additional comments?

I really want to write a review to do it justice. I can't express how much I love Rezkin and his adventures in the 'outworld'. Watching Rez shift from being totally isolated all his life in brutal training to being thrust into the populous is touching and often times comical. There is tons of action, a minor magic system and a bit of romance on the side.
I am a huge fan of Anthony Ryan, Michael J. Sullivan and Patrick Rothfuss. If you like these authors, you should really give this book a try. It is a great addition to the genre of epic fantasy.
Nick as narrator, as usual, is brilliant and truly brings the characters to life.
