A beautiful young elven sorceress flees for her life in a dark world where magic is forbidden and elves live as slaves. Watching her are the Order of Witch-Hunters, the corrupt organization that rules by fear and ignorance, and a mysterious, wealthy nobleman, lord of an idyllic valley who is not all he seems. As the slavers roll across the lands, stealing elves from what remains of their ancestral home, the Witch-Hunters turn a blind eye to the tragedy and a story of power, love, and a terrible revenge unfolds.

Brilliant narrator and author make fantasy breathe
I savor A. L Butcher's works. Their depth and quality, as well as their honesty, are rare. In choosing Rob Goll, the up-and coming Shakespearean actor, Butcher has played to her strengths: author and narrator both excel at myth and drama, and both love delivering a truthful tale. If you like fantasy with a bite, the Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles, Book 1 is for you.
Let's see: power, love, revenge, all bubble in a cauldron of suspense when an elven sorceress ventures where magic is a crime. Where elves are slaves, our elf girl fights fear and ignorance, personified by the Order of Witch-Hunters and a mysterious nobleman. In a world where idyllic often means treacherous, and slavers lurk behind every bush of a land elves once called home, vengeance brews...
Listening to Robb Goll is a pleasure, and I've listened to several of his audio-books, and loved each, because each performance seems perfectly tempered to the tale he's telling. In his narration of Heroika 1: Dragon Eaters, this flexibility and range is particularly well displayed as he goes from one story, one author, one world to the next, while giving each tale both individuality and connectedness to the whole. Impressive.
I couldn't listen in one sitting, but I found myself sneaking away to listen to parts, until finally I reached the end and wished I had another like this to hear.
