Publisher's Summary

Four years have passed since Rafel disappeared in the expedition over the mountains. Deenie, now 18, starts having disturbing dreams about her brother. She comes to believe he's not dead after all, but is in trouble and needs her help.
She enlists the aid of her cousin Randa and the girls hatch a plan to escape from Lur. They escape and survive the hazardous journey round the coastline past the mountains. To their dismay they discover that the lands beyond Lur are blighted with lawlessness and chaos. The remnant of Morg's consciousness that survived his death splintered at his downfall and sought refuge in whatever bodies could be found to host them.
Throughout their travels and adventures they get some answers about the other lost expeditions, and keep hearing about one fearsome mage who's slowly but surely gaining the upper hand from his stronghold in the blighted near-mythical land of Dorana. Deenie knows this is her brother - that Rafel's not only in danger, he's become dangerous. If he's not stopped he could become a threat to the whole world. Perhaps even another Morg.

Narrator changed

Would you listen to The Reluctant Mage again? Why?

The narrator is awful on this reading. She mispronounces the names and even pronounces babies like baaahbies once. The story itself is good.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nell Geisslinger’s performances?

I would not listen to anything else narrated by Nell Geisslinger if I can help it!

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


Any additional comments?

In the publishers summary it reads "She enlists the aid of her cousin Randa." Who is Randa?? There are no cousins mentioned that I'm aware of.

I couldn't finish this book.

I was so distracted by the strange changing accents and the new pronunciations of names that I couldn't focus enough to finish listening.
