Publisher's Summary

Mordecai's growing power and success have made him a threat, not just to the gods and their minions, but also to the king of Lothion. An unholy bargain has been struck to bring him to heel and increasingly it seems that victory may not be worth the price, not if the cost is measured in the blood of his family. Wizard, lord, husband, father, and now man can balance so many roles without sacrificing something.
Will the world be worth saving if it costs him the very reasons he has for living in it?

Absolutely phenomenal!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Archmage Unbound to be better than the print version?

Im not sure having the audio over the print is better per say, but it is fun to hear it narrated with character behind each voice and it's great when you have things to do with your hands and cant sit still to read!

What other book might you compare The Archmage Unbound to and why?

There isn't really any book I can compare the Mageborn series to. It is a singularly brilliant series, I can say, people who like epic fantasy novels like LOTR, or The Seven Realms series would love this.

What about Todd McLaren’s performance did you like?

I love how Todd McLaren narrates. You can distinguish each character by his impersonation of their voices, even the women. He really makes it exciting. He doesn't speed through, but he doesn't draw it out to long either

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and cried, I got angry, I even got nervous and scared! It is extremely hillarious at times. Mort has an idiot sense of humor! LOL

- Amazon Customer "I am an avid fantasy a fault! I love the escape from reality it brings, its like taking a mini vacation to another realm..daily!"

getting better!

The story line is great, and more mentions of bouncing off like a "trampoline." I did not hear as many time frame vs story telling mishaps i'm this book.

The narrator is getting better, I think. I still have an issue with the fact that the MC's are in their early twenties, but often sound like middle aged men. Penny sounds much better, and Mort...Darian really bothers me for some reason.

but as I said in an earlier review, I bought them all, so let the fun times role!
