The various characters and the world they lives are not only entertaining to read about it intriguing as well. From beginning to end I was anxious to discover the next secret only to be given a little and the presented with something new to j sets tams. Great characters and story. Anxious to start book 2.
The narration was great and brought distinct features to life for each character.
I have to say that the world is different, but the story is a normal cliche. Child with nothing and no hope gains power, friends, mentor and a life never dreamed about. it is not bad, and the magic mechanics make for interesting circumstances but other than that there are times where you just want to skip ahead because you know what is going to happen and it is just being drawn out. I will be getting the next book to see if it gets better because it has potential.
I really enjoyed this book from start to finish...
I enjoy a narrator that pulls you into the story.... He made me cry at one point in the story..
This book is 26 hours long, so I couldn't listen to it all in one sitting, but I did stay up late for the last five hours of the book.
Well worth the credit...
Read this book at the recommendation of a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the performance was outstanding. It is a long book so be ready for lots of character detail. Took a little bit to get into the story but I was hooked petty quickly. Defiantly worth a read/listen! Enjoy!!
