Publisher's Summary

Ray Cross wasn't a hero; he could die too easily. But some things are worth risking death....
Ray Cross was born with a genetic disorder, resulting in a fragile body; his organs and blood vessels will rupture with any hard impact, so standing up to his best friend's controlling boyfriend could kill him. Ray's life in Midland, MI, gets decimated when his parents reveal they are not his real parents, and his real father, a king from a secret land hidden in the far north of Canada, is dying and wishes to meet his son.
With his doctor and newly-met twin, Ray travels to the forgotten village of Yardis, where magic, myth, and corruption are abundant. But the longer Ray stays in the village learning the truth of his past and reconnecting with his father, King Vintras, the more he discovers an evil force threatening the king and his village. But there's more than the king and a village tied to Yardis and Ray. He finds friendship and more from a band of brothers who are part witch, dragon, and healer. With new alliances and new abilities, Ray wars with himself on playing it safe or risking it all to save the ones he loves.
Can Ray rise above his fragile disorder to become the hero for once in his life?

Good story

This was a good story - not great but good. It started off explaining the world very well and typical reactions. Later it became more tedious and harder to find believable. It was still good but it took some work to accept. My biggest issue was the narrator. Sometimes it felt like he was speeding through. There were odd noises that didn’t belong. It was disruptive to listening.

It starts off great.

The first half of the book really sucks you into the world. I cared about the characters and they seemed very real. The last third felt rushed as the writing style changed into telling you what has happened instead of showing it. I liked the story and wanted more of it.

I had a couple issues with the ending but it didn’t distract from how much liked the rest of the book.

I was provided a free audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review.
