Publisher's Summary

It's not easy being the youngest of seven sons in a family of notorious sorcerers, especially for Ayden Dracre. In a world where sorcerers only practice dark magic and wizards only practice light magic, Ayden has a problem; he is very bad at being bad. Try as he might, all of his spells to cause mayhem go awry. When he finds out that his family has had enough of his mistakes, he decides to take destiny into his own hands.
He has one chance to prove to his family that he is worthy of the sorcerer name or he will find himself on the unfortunate end of his mother's wrath; he must defeat the greatest wizard of all the lands. There are only two problems: he doesn't know how to fight with magic, and he doesn't want to hurt anyone. If he's going to survive this quest, he will have to rely on the most unlikely allies.

Humorous quest adventure

In many ways this is a "typical" quest story: a young man seeks his way in life, meeting allies along the way, until he comes to the object of his search and fulfills his quest. And some of the elements used in the story are well-known fairy tale tropes, such as the seventh son of a seventh son.

And yet this story didn't feel "typical." I found myself laughing at some of the situations Ayden got himself into, but I also felt sympathy toward him as he kept trying so hard to be the thing that he really isn't (and doesn't really want to be). The author was able to keep me wanting to read (listen) to the story and keep me interested in what happened to the character--but more importantly, I really cared about what happened to the characters.

As a coming of age story, Ayden finds himself caught between what his family wants for him and what he wants for himself (even though he doesn't know what that is yet). His quest doesn't end the way he expects, and his conflict is far from over (lots of room for the series to expand). I enjoyed meeting his companions along the way, and I look forward to reading even more adventures.

Note: I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
