Publisher's Summary

The discovery of a strange and superior warship sends Dion, youngest son of the king of Xanthos, and Chloe, a Phalesian princess, on a journey across the sea, where they are confronted by a kingdom far more powerful than they could ever have imagined.
But they also find a place in turmoil, for the ruthless sun king, Solon, is dying. In order to gain entrance to heaven, Solon is building a tomb - a pyramid clad in gold - and has scoured his own empire for gold until there's no more to be found.
Now Solon's gaze turns to Chloe's homeland, Phalesia, and its famous sacred ark, made of solid gold. The legends say it must never be opened, but Solon has no fear of foreigners' legends or even their armies. And he isn't afraid of the eldren, an ancient race of shape-shifters, long ago driven into the Wilds.
For when he gets the gold, Solon knows he will live forever.

Not Epic .... But Great Story!

When I need a change or break from my usual genres I listen too, I usually look for an epic fantasy to get lost in, and stumbled across Golden Age. While I don’t think I would consider Golden Age to be an “epic” fantasy, it was most certainly an intriguing, well developed story that capture my attention, and took me on an journey; albeit sometimes an intense journey, with two unique characters as they headed out on their own journey one by choice, the other by capture.
Like with most fantasy stories, Golden Age starts off a bit slowly while developing the world, and characters making them appear both real and  tangible. However, before long the story picks up, moves at a steady pace all the way till the end.

Simon Vance performance was outstanding, and his voice is perfect for fantasy stories. He really brought both the story and characters to life.

A Kindle Unlimited gem and great story for fantasy fans.
