Publisher's Summary

Magic can make you invincible, if it doesn't get you killed first.
Aric and Fadan are half-brothers. Both sons of the Empress, but only one of them the son of the Emperor. A decade ago, Fadan's powerful father tore the Empire in two by outlawing the use and practice of magic. Forbidden from seeing each other, Aric and Fadan defy the Emperor and wander the vast Imperial Citadel until one night, they stumble upon an ancient Manual of Magic. They are faced with a choice: take the book straight to the Emperor or see if one of them has the forbidden magical talent. Their world is turned upside down and the half-brothers find themselves swept away as tragedy and conspiracy separate them, sending each to either end of the Empire. In a world of dark mages, massive creatures, and vengeful gods, one will train as a Dragon Hunter while the other taps into magical powers that could spell his execution.
Dark forces are moving in the shadows and no one in the Empire is ready for what's to come. Will Aric and Fadan survive to ever see each other again?

Good listen

Awesome new book along with great ( Audible ) narration done by Todd Menesses. I am not one to drone on with a review, but I will say that it's like a YA book, but less whiny, more action and start to a good world building along with a magic system.

I would normally toss a YA book out the window into a burning fire BUT there are a handful that I will let slide when the YA ( protagonist ) is not acting like a total self entitled know it all ass hat.

Oh, and if you like Dragons it has plenty of them.

Fun adventure for all ages with a twist

The story was fresh and original and the narrator was very good at giving each character a distinct voice and personality. This was more of a performance than a narration! I eagerly await the next book in the series.and hopefully it will be narrated, excuse me performed by Todd Menesses as well.

Not Great Unfortunately

Unfortunately this audio book was really quite difficult to get into. The continuity is disjointed and the plot is quite weak.
On the plus side, the wonderful voice reading allowed me to see this book through to the end.

Decent story with a bad narrator.

The story is good. But the narrator has a bizarre habit of over emphasising on words, leading to him miss pronounce words.
