This is a good story written in a classical style. The bad guys are bad, the good guys are good. But not done in a way that embarrasses you to enjoy.
I definitely plan to read the next in the series.

I came across this 1st book in this series quite by accident. I downloaded another of this author's books, Sevenfold Sword, the first book in a series that I believe follows the son or perhaps children of the main character in this series and while I began to listen to it I was looking at the other books this author wrote. When I saw that there were books that predated it set in the same world and concerning some of the core characters I immediately stopped the book and downloaded this. I hadn't heard of the author nor the narrator and there were very few reviews on the books in this series so I was a bit leery as to whether or not I'd enjoy it. Oftentimes the first few books an author puts out can be tortuous to get through but progressively get better as more and more books are put out especially given that self publication is much easier to achieve now. This book wasn't like that at all. It was wonderfully done with great character development and a storyline full of action that still gives the reader a firm grasp on the world's history without revealing too much about the central characters, leaving plenty of mystery to be disclosed in later books. I wasn't familiar with the narrator, Steven Crossley, either and have never listened to him prior to this book as far as I can recall. There again I was pleasantly surprised. He does a solid job and gives much more to the story than reading alone. His female voices were a little weak but not so much that it detracts from the performance. I definitely recommend checking this title out!
i've read all the books in this series and loved every one..very exciting to hear them in the audio format. well worth the credit..
