Publisher's Summary

In Wraith, author Robert Allen Johnson leaves the alleys, battlefields, and politics of ancient Rome behind in favor of fantastical war-torn lands from ages long past.
Following the tales of two haunted, fragile protagonists, Wraith drops the listener into dense forests scouted by cruel soldiers, abandoned wilds teeming with dangerous mysteries, scorched villages burned to ash, and hidden rebel camps as both men fight to escape their haunted, tortured pasts.
In Tiro's tale, a troubled bowman known as "The Ghost" fights to navigate a world of loneliness, revenge, and purpose after losing all he holds dear. In the tale of Arach, a weary traveler in a strange, foreign land meets a mysterious, unwelcome visitor with unknown intentions.
Thus begins the first chapter of Johnson's new series Empire and the Hand, a dark, emotional ride through failure, purpose, vengeance, and regret that will leave fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction fans breathless and eager for more.

Wraith compels you to listen!

Where does Wraith rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I drive a truck for many hours each day and listen to many audiobooks. I found Wraith to be highly engaging, thought provoking, and downright captivating. The characters live tough lives and the author does a great job making me believe in the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was the wraith. What is it? Why is it? is there any good in it? I also loved the way the narrator changed his voice when speaking the Wraith's part. Awesome stuff.

Which character – as performed by James Foster – was your favorite?

The wraith was the most unique character. James Foster nailed it.

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

I devoured this audio in two sessions. It went by fast. Very professionally narrated.

Any additional comments?

I guess if I were forced to come up with a complaint I would say the book is a bit short. At only 5 hours it went by fast, but I am no doubt going to be hooked on future volumes.
