Demon spawn, they call him. Evil seed of the UnNamed One. Lirak wonders if they might be right. Sent on a holy quest to test his prophetic dreams, he returns to find his people scattered or slaughtered. Ruthless invaders and their dread warlocks spread death and destruction across the land. Before he can lead the remnants of his people in vengeance, Lirak must win their trust. But blades and arrows alone will not defeat this enemy. His only hope is to master warlock sorcery, turning their own fell powers against them. Can he learn their arcane secrets in time, or will the deadly power consume him? Only the seven gods could know, but they war amongst themselves, and Lirak is a pawn in their divine conflict. Even if he defeats the invaders, he fears his trials are just beginning.

Worth a credit, a little odd, a little unique
The story feels unique, and for this alone is worth the credit. It has this nice mix of English knights/armor and American Indians in colonial times. Note, that is about as close of a feel for the storyline that I can come up with, it does not seem to be directly related to either. I did stop the story several times, and I don't have a great feel as to why. ...and I would have subtracted more stars for this, but considering previous book rankings, I couldn't give it any less than four stars....although I really wanted to subtract a half star here or there. It could have been the performance, or the story, or a combination of the two. The magic in the story is not in your face, it kinda like icing on the cake. Generally, worth a credit, but don't expect to binge listen.
