Only thing I could criticize is small and petty...the narrator pronounced secreted as 'secrete'd instead of 'secret'ed, but I understood why that could be mispronounced. It was good! Recommended
read the book loved it so much i grabbed the audio book as well no its my nightly ritual and the only way i can get to sleep. the story is great but you really have to read to the end of the trilogy if you want to fully understand the way he builds everything up.
I have been looking for a book for a while that is good... I have had a lot of duds... This one though reminds me a lot of the name of the wind or the sword of truth...
A coming of age story with plenty of grit violence and pg sex... Great antagonists and anti heroes overall an above average story and a great start to this trilogy
Coming off a 2 year plus binge on the Wheel of Time series, I was looking for something to scratch the itch for fantasy and fill the significant void left by WoT. This was a great book that helped me move on. :-) Very intriguing story so far, that gets a little dark/heavy at times (especially after WoT) but always enjoyable. I'll definitely read the rest of this series. The book seemed a little brief with only 21 hours of narration. Finished in less than a month (slow pace), so I'm eagerly awaiting my next Audible credit.
I'm glad I stumbled across this audible book when looking at which other ones Paul Boehmer had narrated. I first heard him narrate the Dragonlance books. The story was great and did not disappoint me at all despite the characters being kids to begin with. I've found I enjoy books with more of a descriptive writing which this has.
