Publisher's Summary

Simon can only watch, helpless, as his family is killed and his friends are captured by enemy Travelers - men and women who can summon mystical powers from otherworldly Territories. To top it off, another young man from Simon's village discovers that he's a savior prophesied to destroy evil and save the realm.
Prophecy has nothing to say about Simon. He has no special powers, no magical weapons, and no guarantee that he'll survive. He sets off anyway, alone, to gain the power he needs to oppose the Travelers and topple their ruthless Overlord. It may not be his destiny, but Simon's determined to rescue his fellow villagers from certain death.
Because who cares about prophecy, really?

Empowerment for the Unchosen One

I first ran across this writer as a cheap book on amazon's kindle books, paid a few dollars and thoroughly enjoyed this tail about the chosen hero who isn't all that good at being a virtuous hero and a unpopular unremarkable looking guy who also decides to go rescue their people and find power even though he wasn't born the chosen prophesied hero and gets it through dangerous and nearly lethal hard work only for them both to realize how naive they both were wen they finally come to the rescue and realize life isn't like a story where you arrive in the nick of time and you get the girl in the end.

They both come at it from a different place but it is very interesting and I'm glad the author decided to narrate his own work, he did a great job, only need for improvement is when he does female voices .
The series gets better with each book. Get themas they come out.

Fantastic

This far surpassed my expectations. It was absolutely fantastic.

5/5 will buy sequel.

A few said that the narration was bad. It isn't. Each character is has a distinct voice and the narrator has very good pacing and no annoying voice tendencies.
