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.

What is with the voice Todd ?

I seriously cant for the life of me understand why Todd uses a faux English accent for the majority of the story, in such an odd baritone. Sure, he does an English accent realy well, but it just gets distracting as the book goes on. Why he doesnt use his natural voice for the narrative and save his character voices for individual characters is beyond me. On top of the distraction of the odd accent it also seems to cause him to mispronounce or use the wrong word entirely in a number of places. Im really struggling to make it to the end of the book due to the performance, from a performer I usually love to listen to.
