Publisher's Summary

Some are born with magic. Some without.
Matteo, un-magical counselor to the mighty of Halruaa, has devoted his life to the truth - until he finds that he may have a hidden spark of magic after all. Now, with only a street waif for a companion, he's on the run from the mysterious Cabal. In the dismal Swamp of Akhlaur, Matteo will seek his own truth while battling a creature out of his nightmares.
But something even worse is on his trail: a relentless persecutor of magic: The Magehound.

Brings me back...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I played Dungeons and Dragons often as a kid/teenager, and this really brought me back to that world of imagination and adventure.

What did you like best about this story?

It seemed well researched in terms of D&D lore. Everything was consistent with my remembrance from my D&D days of the geography, creatures, races and magical abilities of characters. It had a nice cliffhanger, too, which made me want to listen to the other 2 books in the trilogy.

What does Kevin Kraft bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's great with the character voices. I could tell who was talking to who.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

She's a beautiful, powerful, exotic green elf wizard. But whose side is she on?

Any additional comments?

Take a trip down memory lane with this fun adventure book. Can't wait to hear the other two books in this series!
