Epic fantasy with a dash of science fiction.
This book came as an utter surprise to me. As you read, you can sort of tell that this is a writer who is just starting to come to his own (read his backstory, it's interesting on its own.), but it is so easy to forgive any mistakes that he makes purely because you fall in love with the characters immediately. Royce and Hadrian are the best duo, and the kind of people you want to imagine being friends with in an alternate life. Indeed, by the time you finish this book you can't help but immediately search for the next one, even if it happens to be one in the morning on a weekday.
I was captivated throughout the entirety of this book. I first listened to The Age of Myth and was amazed by the story and manner of writing. I decided to start this series and have not been disappointed at all! I highly recommend this book.
The narrarator did a fantastic job with this book. There were almost no errors and I felt as though I was actually there. The reading did nothing but enhance the book.
This series is amazing!! The story is entertaining & strong it weaves enough historical fiction & mythology with supernatural creatures & its magnificent! It's funny & runs you thru every range of emotion buying book 2 now
This is one of the worst books I have ever read. It's extremely simplistic in a bad way. There are no plot twists, the dialogue isn't witty, and the world building is atrocious. The bad guys are from B movies where they explain the whole plot to the good guys right before they miraculously escape. There is zero chance i finish the series. If you still get this book, do yourself a favor and listen on 2x speed.
Great story line. Captivating for someone like me who normally doesn't love fantasy novels. Couldn't stop listening. Also very clean as far language, violence, and sexual content go.
I was completely in to this book, and I spend all the chances I had to listen to it.. what a great story, super narrated and nice plot. I bought the next book already... And I can't wait to get started.
Exciting, Suspenseful, Adventurous
Tim Gerard Reynolds does an AMAZING job of narrating the book, I really do enjoy having him as I go through the series. He's just so wonderful at portraying emotions of each character, and he can do such a variety of accents and voices that I almost feel that I know these characters on another level. I am VERY satisfied with him as the narrator for this series.
I got my boyfriend into the series and I'm really happy to see he's been enjoying it! He never read books before but I pushed him into trying this audio book out and now he listens to it every chance he gets. I'm very pleased over all!
I gave this book 5 stars but it was not the best one I have read. Still, since I had good time listening to it, I think it deserves 5 stars.
Easy to follow story line, small and interesting plot twists, and two awesome characters.
It is NOT epic fantasy comparing with some other books, nor it is high fantasy. I would call it something between low fantasy, almost epic fantasy and regular fantasy.
Worth trying out.
