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.

The Sorcerer's Quest

Any additional comments?

I received this audio book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This was a pretty fun book - the narrator is brilliant! He gives distinct voices to the different characters, especially Ayden and Merlin. It was entertaining, fun and enjoyable. I really feel for Ayden only being able to summon and eat apples and broccoli.

7th/7th :) old take, new twists

I could have sworn I wrote this review ages ago. But I actually think I did write it, it went to preview and then I didn't hit send. Sigh, there's been a few of those I've found lately. Sorry. I finished this book off ages ago, while I was on holiday...

Anyway, I really enjoyed the narration of this, the tale of the 7th son of a 7th son has been done a few times, but I thought that this was interesting enough and Ayden was a pretty young yet cool character. It was a good growing up and character orientated story. Yes, at times I wondered if this was a little young for me, but I was laughing and crying along with the characters in the end I'd forgotten it was aimed at a little younger than myself. I feel that any age can listen to this and be swept away in the journey that Ayden and his friends have to endure. (I think everyone can identify with a parent that wants to control you, but don't most kids then just rebel even more?)

It was magic, fun and a great adventure. I'd highly recommend it and what prompted me to find my review was I noticed the second book is out! I shall have to get my to be listened to list down a bit before I take on anymore though.

The narrator did a great job with this, I really fell into the trap that there were more than one person doing this and then thought hard about it, great performance, which really helped, especially through the fun and the harsher times. Some great twists in here, you won't expect, but I'm not going to spoil them for you.

And I'll defo be picking up the next one in the series. :)
