Publisher's Summary

Upon the beautiful planet of Kaliya, the Khurran (eight foot tall sloth-like folks) live peaceful lives in the trees and mountains. Many of the Khurran of Wild Mountain still worship Jesh, the goddess of their mountain, and some remember when she walked amongst the mortals. After thousands of years another god awakens, though not one that any living being would worship.
He is Rokkhu, born of darkness, blight on the face of Kaliya. Leaf, a young Khurran, is beginning to learn the truth of who he truly is, for he is a bodhisattva: a being of light, reincarnated once again to counter the forces of darkness that emerge in the world. Reluctant to disrupt his peaceful and quiet life upon the mountain, he nonetheless must face his truth and look for other bodhisattvas in the world to teach him, for he has been chosen to stop the dark god, Rokkhu, and restore safety to the mortals and gods alike.
Journeying through a world in which the spirits and gods interact with the mortals, Leaf and his companions must unravel a spiral of dark deeds that began thousands of years ago, and that have only begun to come to their fruition.

A New Intriguing World

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."

I listened to this book pretty quickly. I never found it dull and I just kept going. It was really a solid experience all the way through. I wasn't bored or confused. I wasn't frustrated by mistakes or problems. I just listened and enjoyed. Justin Dockins really has created a great world for this story and I am now really looking forward to more!

Review keeper of the violet fire

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."
Justin Dickinson has joined the ranks of Frank Peretti, C S Lewis, John Bunyan, and others who have managed to weave a camouflaged path of spirit into an enjoyable fiction story. Andrew Start's narration fits this story like a glove, it's his tone that conveys each character. Very enjoyable.
