r/Fantasy 2016 Stabby Award Finalist
2016 #SPFBO Finalist2016 Indie Spotlight -
A war fueled by the dark powers of forbidden sorcery is about to engulf the Ascendant Empire. Agerastian heretics, armed with black fire and fueled by bitter hatred, seek to sever the ancient portals that unite the empire - and in so doing, destroy it.
Asho - a squire with a reviled past - sees his liege, the Lady Kyferin, and her meager forces banished to an infamous ruin. Beset by tragedy and betrayal, demons and an approaching army, the fate of the Kyferins hangs by the slenderest of threads. Asho realizes that their sole hope of survival may lie hidden within the depths of his scarred soul - a secret that could reverse their fortunes and reveal the truth behind the war that wracks their empire.
Unpredictable, fast paced, and packed with unforgettable characters, The Path of Flames is the first installment in a gripping new epic fantasy series.

Fun Fantasy

This is a fun fantasy setting with some good tips well used. But a unique religion somewhat reminding me of Americanized Hinduism.
I found it enjoyable and will definitely be getting the next in the series.

The narrator, starts off a little dry, but he picks up a 'voice' or style about a third of the way through. Then he gets much better and I was drawn in.

Endurance is a virtue...

I tried. I mean, I really tried. See the rest of my reviews and you'll see I love fantasy. I love this book, having read the kindle...but the audio version...ugh. The narrator killed it for me. I'm not sure what he sounded like or what he reminded me of, but his voice does not fit the material. Truly bummed because I have looked forward to these books coming to audio for a while. Would loved to have heard a Michael Kramer (Mistborn/Wheel of Time/Circle of Reign), Nick Podhel (Name of the Wind/Castes and the outCastes), Scott Brick (The Passage/Terra Incognita), Oliver Wyman (Crucible of Souls), or a Keith Michaelson (The Lost Shards) type of narrator. I'm not a mean spirited person, I promise! I just have to encourage you to skip the audio on this one and read the actual book.

Best performance of an audio book I've ever heard, and by only a single actor
