A town burns, and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, 17-year-old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back. If he stops, they die.
For two years, he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now, there is another searching for him - one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair, and he knows the true nature of the curse. Magic.

A cutting trilogy
Sword of light is roughly 30 hours of pure fun. It is everything you expect in a fantasy world, and that is not a bad thing. Good vs Evil, yeah, that too, of course. This is a complete trilogy, and so far as I can tell no other books have been made in this series, so it is a nice compete series for your enjoyment. I can appreciate when a writer has said all he or she wants to in a particular setting. Never ending series tend to get stale afte awhile. Sword of Light is fresh, fun, and fantastical.
The story begins with a young man, Eric, and a special gift that he has but cannot control properly. This leads to disaster and earnes him an enemy. The only hope he has comes in the form of a wizard who befriends him and helps him to learn about his gift. The series progresses as the characters develop. You get to watch them grow. You suffer their torments and you glory in their triumphs.
David Stifel knocks it out of the park once more; he is a most excellent narrator, and he helps to bring the story to life. I think any book that has him a a narrator becomes better with his reading.
Eric grows as both a character and a mage in the series, he becomes a man and masters his powers. His adventures are fun and have everything from action to a wincey bit of Romance.
This is one of those series that you will find yourself rereading once every year or so. You'll also wish that there was more of it, but to be fair, the story was told and wraps up nicely.
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. I certify that it has been fair and honest as well.

This is a good listen
I must say I enjoyed this trilogy. To have all 3 rolled up together was a big bonus. Although I liked this trilogy, it started off a bit slow and took some time develop. Once it did, it moved at good pace. It kept me interested and looking forward to what happened next. The characters had good depth and the world building was accomplished without getting weighed down in over reaching detail. At first I thought the narration was going to make me turn it off but David Stifel got into a groove and delivered a solid performance. There were several twists throughout you could not see coming. My only negative aspect of the whole trilogy is there were more than a few situations where the characters were saved by divine intervention. Being saved by divine intervention is believable once but any more than that seems slightly unbelievable and excessive.
I really like Aarons writing style and look forward to reading more from him. In conclusion, this series is a great listen. You won’t be disappointed.
Even though this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review, my review is honest and from the heart!
