Many years have passed since the last great Mage War. It has been a time of great change. But not all changes are for the best, and Asher's world is in peril once more.The weather magic that holds Lur safe is failing, and the earth feels broken to those with the power to see. Among Lur's sorcerers, only Asher has the skill to mend the antique weather map that governs the seasons, keeping the land from being crushed by natural forces. Yet, when Asher risks his life to meddle with these dangerous magics, the crisis is merely delayed, not averted.Asher's son Rafel has inherited the father's talents, but has been forbidden to use them. Many died in the last Mage War and these abilities aren't to be loosed lightly into the world. But when Asher's last desperate attempt to repair the damage leaves him on his deathbed, Rafel's powers may not be denied. For his countrymen are facing famine, devastation, and a rift in the very fabric of their land.

Narrator was too "enthusiastic"

Would you consider the audio edition of The Prodigal Mage to be better than the print version?

Not with this narrator, no -- the narrator of the first 2 books was much better.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Narrator was too "over the top" and "enthusiastic" with EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I needed breaks from the narrator's voice - no joke.

Great read

This is a great expansion on the kingmaker, kingbreaker universe. This story takes a much different path than the first two books. However, if you like the first two books you will not be disappointed. Magic use is more prevalent in this book, but there is still a heavy "political" focus. This story focuses on Asher trying to keep Lur together in wake of the olken gaining new rights as well as some other problems. While I much preferred the narration of the first two books the narrator eventually grew on me. However, with that said I think the performance would have been much improved if the narrator of the first two books.
