Publisher's Summary

Discover a lost magic, long buried and forgotten....
Without a rune marking his role in society, Brock is doomed to a life below the lowest rung of the social ladder. Unwilling to accept his fate, the teen risks his life to obtain a fake rune that marks him as a member of the Empire's ruling class. He then embarks on a quest to join an institution where the Empire's future leaders are trained.
As a student of the Academy, he soon uncovers a chain of secrets kept hidden for centuries, secrets that expose cracks in the foundation of Empire society. Among his discoveries is a powerful magic, long buried and forgotten.
Brock's compassion and sense of justice are seeds that sprout tight friendships and a blossoming romance. An unwillingness to be bullied earns him a dangerous enemy, growing into a feud that escalates to a climactic showdown.

good story. subpar narrator.

The book was interesting. Both the world and premise leave a lot of potoential for this series. My only complaint about the story is that all the women the protagonist meets seems as easy as Bond girls.

The naration was not very good. I nearly stopped listening in the first few minutes because of it. That would have been a shame too because it an interesting book.
