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?

WHERE DO YOU FIND SAND IN THE DESERT?

It is You Not Me
When ever I quit a book early, I feel guilty. I hate quitting and I hate giving negative reviews (even though I write a lot of them). I wonder, was I just in the wrong mood, my head in the wrong place, why am I not enjoying this. A lot happens in this book and it happens fast. You do not have to wait on the action to start. I guess there are some writers who can put me into the action, make me feel and some who sound like they are making a list of actions. My mind kept wondering through this and before two hours were up, I switched over. I switched to THE BLADE ITSELF BY JOE ABERCROMBIE and I was immediately into the story. Sixteen hours later I am still being entertained.

It is unfortunate that newer, less popular authors have to read their own books. Some are okay at it, but some not so much. WW is not bad, but his voice is so not in the mood of the book. He seems happy and care free, as he reads about a kids father being killed. A good narrator can make such a difference, hopefully WW will make enough money to pay for a good narrator.

Such a fun and intriguing story!

I enjoyed this book tremendously! I would recommend this book to all fans of fantasy and people who enjoy reading books that are unexpectedly funny and heroic. I really liked the author reading the book as his inflections were great as were his accents. He needs to work on his female voices but otherwise a very enjoyable book!
