Publisher's Summary

Western wizardry meets the mages of the exotic East. Neither will ever be the same. Daimbert the wizard is on the road to adventure with five guys from Yurt. Their search for a missing lord soon becomes a quest for a fabled blue rose and for an unthinkably powerful magical artifact from the time of Solomon.
Along the way they face intrigue, treachery, black magic, and a big green djinn. Only Daimbert may be able to save their lives - and their souls - as the line grows thin between a fatal curse and finding one's heart's desire.

Delightful immersion in a well written fantasy

An absolute must for the fantasy fan who appreciates mature character development, thoughtful conflict, and an intricate multi-thread plot.

Considerable time is invested in the development of the individual backstories of the questing ensemble which pays tremendous dividends as the adventure unfolds drawing the reader (listener) deeply into a tightly interwoven story. We avoid the omnipotent super heroes so common in today's video games and focus on characters with very real human foibles that work alternately together and at odds to resolve both the surreal and mundane. The backdrops of both medieval Europe and the middle east with their political and theological references lend a tangible grounding to the fantasy allowing the listener to easily suspend disbelief and fully embrace magic, monsters, and brigands.

A talented narrator brings the story to life with both energy and a vivid presentation. His range of character interpretation is remarkable and this is an absolute must given the size and diversity of both the questing ensemble and the multiple encounters along the way. The accompanying music was carefully selected to compliment the narrative and sets the tone perfectly for each of the ensuing sections.

Overall, a well written storyline in a delightful presentation. Highly recommended.

LOVE this series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This series is such fun. The audio books are well read and I find the interplay between magic and religion quite interesting.

Have you listened to any of Eric Vincent’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

It is excellent. All three books in the series are excellent.

Any additional comments?

This is a fun series, with this book being my favorite so far. I hope to see the rest come out as audio books soon. I like that the world seems to be Earth, but has magic. We see Christianity as well as Islam in play as well. Very interesting and lots of fun.
