In a gritty world of lies and treachery, the standard fantasy hero just won't do.
Taro lost his right leg years ago, but with a family to support, he doesn't let it slow him down. For years he's worked for a notorious crime lord named Victor Mathan. Mathan deals in stolen magical artifacts and trusts Taro to finish his work with as few questions as possible.
When an absurdly well-paying job comes up, Taro is quick to volunteer. Mathan wants him to break a powerful sorceress out of jail, but her prison is under the control of an ancient military order called the Magisterium. To get to her, Taro must pose as a Magisterium recruit. The courses are grueling, the trials drive students mad, and the magic they teach can be as deadly to the caster as it is to the target.

Fun Story, Amazing Narrator
The narration was fantastic. With so many characters and voices and accents in the book Pirhalla performed it incredibly well. Real joy to listen to this book. Most importantly Reach was a very good first book by Hayden. Not your normal book of magic. It's full of twists and turns and surprises that are weaved into the story quite well. Hayden gets a crucial element that many writers don't get...make your reader root for and care for your characters. He has accomplished this. Even smaller characters are fleshed out well and it really adds to the entire world created in Reach. This is one you'll want to listen to as opposed to reading. Can't wait to hear book 2.
