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.

The story never let go...
Unique Magical Suspense
Brad Wilcox was an excellent narrator. I really enjoyed his subtle takes on the characters and the use of his voice to create suspense.
I hated being interrupted while I was listening to this book. This book was fantastic.
I was thoroughly surprised. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. But I found within a few paragraphs that I loved the characters, I loved the subtle back story and how professionally it was woven into the present. I enjoyed the character development they went though. And how stubborn the main character is.
I REALLY enjoyed the magic system and the way he was exploring that as he learned and discovered new things (no spoilers:). And as the group of students gathered together it felt natural and added to the enjoyment.
I am totally reading the next few books.
