Publisher's Summary

"Adventure is the lure of fools, and excitement glamour to the gullible. The siren song of the world is as music to the wanderer's feet, but that dance leads only to the soul-less grave."
So Jekaran's uncle has warned him. But that doesn't stop him from leaping at the exhilarating chance to single-handedly rescue a beautiful woman from a gang of lecherous thieves.
But the bored farm boy quickly finds that he is no match for the group of angry street thugs, and only escapes death by bonding a magical sword that grants him the strength and skill of a master swordsman. Unfortunately, a peasant wielding such magic is forbidden and punishable by death.
Thus Jekaran finds himself a fugitive with his fate tied to that of the exotic and mysterious, Kairah, a fey woman who must deliver a dire warning to the king that, if heeded, could prevent the very extinction of humanity.

*FULL DISCLOSURE* I am the author.

Any additional comments?

I am the author of this book, and I actually enjoyed Jon's performance (his name is spelled Jon Grundvig, btw). I thought he do a good job bringing my characters to life. He is a professional model and actor, but this was his first time narrating an audio book. I'd love to hear what we could change to improve the performance. Please let me know here in the comments, or by emailing me:

And thanks for listening, and giving your feedback. It's what we authors thrive on.

Genuinely the WORST Narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

From the first word this narrator spoke I knew it was going to be impossible to listen to. It is horrific. The story sounded awesome, but was completely ruined by this horrible narrator.
