    In a bustling metropolis where magic is outlawed, a six-year-old child is found inside a locked bank vault. A scrap of paper reveals his name: Bran Hambric. The child remembers nothing of his life before the vault. Only magic could have done this. But why would any mage risk breaking the law to place a child in a bank vault?

    Story
    Would you try another book from Kaleb Nation and/or Marc Thompson?

    The characters were flat and one-dimensional, and the pacing was atrocious. Kaleb Nation doesn't just give us one or two examples to show the idiotic nature of the family Bran lives with, he gives us about ten examples. The story really drags, and I didn't even want to finish it. Furthermore, several themes are identical to Harry Potter, from the orphaned boy who lives with an unkind, unloving family, to the discovery of his unique abilities at puberty, to the villain who won't leave Bran alone.


    Has Bran Hambric turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't plan to read any other books in this series, or by this author.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Marc Thompson is a great voice-actor, and we've enjoyed many other audiobooks he's performed, especially in the Star Wars series.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointed that I used my credit on this book, especially after reading some reviews that looked promising.
