    The comfortable world of Martris Drayke, second son of King Bricen of Margolan, is shattered when his older half-brother, Jared, and Jareds dark mage, Foor Arontala, kill the king and seize the throne. Tris is the only surviving member of the royal family aside from Jared the traitor, and he flees with three friends: Soterius, captain of the guard; Carroway, the courts master bard; and Harrtuck, a member of the royal guard. Tris harbors a deep secret.....

    "Great story, terrable narration!"
    Overall

    I really liked the story & want to follow the adventure, but I really don't know if I can stand to listen to Peter Ganim tell it any longer. All his pauses are in the wrong place & his voice depictions are terrible. Loose the haughtiness & just tell the story.

    Echoes of the ancients' power are distant memories, tattered and faded by the passage of eons, but that is about to change. A new dawn has arrived. Latent abilities, harbored in mankind's deepest fibers, wait to be unleashed. Ancient evils awaken, and old fears ignite the fires of war. In times such as these, ordinary people have the power to save the world...or destroy it.

    "Terrible narration, weak story."
    Overall

    I got this book because I thought the author reading it would lend to the story. I've had great luck with Steven King novels in that respect. This author narration is the worst book I've ever listened to. I can't even finish the listen, and that is the first time that I have ever paid for a book & not finished it. My advice is to look elsewhere.
