Publisher's Summary

The first great war of Ovira is over, and the most hated king in centuries is dead, but his nephew still lives. However, Basen had nothing to do with the destructive war his uncle started. In fact it was his uncle who exiled him and his father to the territory of their enemies, where Basen's dreams of becoming a legendary mage now fade, as he must work all day just to eat. His only chance at regaining some semblance of the life he thought he would lead is to join an elite school that trains, houses, and feeds a thousand new young men and women each year. But little does Basen know that his determination will put him at the center of a war even bloodier than the one he'd barely managed to avoid.

Slow Start But Strong Finish!

I love a good fantasy story and after reading the Kin of Kings description, I was really interested in listening to the book, and was happy to be gifted a copy of the audiobook at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review by the author, narrator, or publisher courtesy of Audiobook Blast dot com.

I'll admit, in the beginning the story started off slow and almost lost me. It was part the story and part the narration. However, after a couple of hours, the story and narrator really took off! I remember thinking much the story did "180" and was glad I did not give up. The plot starting developing with unexpected twists, and the narrator really seemed to have nailed down the characters and was doing an awesome job.

The plot and characters were developed and Basen was my favorite; however, there was another character who I really like because of their determination and hard work but they turned out to be bad person..... I did not see that coming. This story does end on a cliffhanger so I will be on the lookout for the next audiobook. I really want to know what happens next.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and was glad I stuck with it. I would have really missed out on a good story.

- Cheri "Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!"

I liked it.

First things first I received a free copy of this story for a honest review.

I actually liked this book, it's a decent "lite high fantasy" the story is fairly straightforward and the twist were fairly predictable, but all and all I enjoyed the journey and will listen to the next book in the story.

The narration was well done, each character was distinguishable and unique, 10/10 for Mr. Wilcox his performance definitely increased my enjoyment of the book.
*edit * I just saw that this is Mr. Wilcox's second narration and I must say it is outstanding in that respect, his voice and cadence fix fantasy very well.

The only thing I wish someone had mentioned is this isn't the first arc of this "universe" it didn't hamper my enjoyment of the story but I felt I'd have been more invested to the returning charters if I had.

If I had one thing to say to the author it's stop forcing the romance between the mc, it feels rushed and kinda took away from my enjoyment, they talked for half an hour and had super connection... We've all had a connection between us at a stranger and wanted to pursue it but the interactions between them don't feel natural like his interactions with the rest of the characters.

Overall good book worth a credit at least and if you've read the series up to this post I feel it's a good addition. (even if I haven't read them yet"
