New author Everet Martins introduces listeners to the fantastical world of Zoria, a land of volcanos and carnivorous plants. Ten thousand years have passed since Asebor was sealed during the first age of dawn. The power binding this malevolent god has finally waned, allowing him to once again beat the drums of war. Men worship the phoenix and dragon gods. Some are fortunate enough to touch their essences, transforming ordinary women into fearsome warriors and men into miraculous healers. The beginnings of the next scourge brushes the town of Breden, where Walter, son of elixir bean farmers, itches for adventure only to discover the harsh brutality of combat.

Very promising with potential
This was not good.
The dialogue was awkward. Listening was painful. I can't blame the narrator, he obviously did his best the material. But I can't call his performance good. The story was cliche, but I can handle that. We all know the hero's journey by now. I won't be a snob. I know what to expect most of the time when I pick up fantasy adventure. But while the author obviously loves the genre, he has little talent for it's execution.
Into the Wild by Larry Correia. I can't wait. He is always a blast.
When the material is this bad tone it down. He tried to bring life to the bad dialogue which just made it sound even worse. Every time he spoke you couldn't help asking yourself if people would really say that, or react that way in a particular situation. If Kevin had better material he would have really shone.
I liked the authors attempt at originality. The weapons and magic system did sound cool.
