    Kellen Tavadon, son of the Arch-Mage Lycaelon, thought he knew the way the world worked. His father, leading the wise and benevolent Council of Mages, protected and guided the citizens of the Golden City of the Bells. Young Mages in training---all men, for women were unfit to practice magic---memorized the intricate details of High Magic and aspired to seats on the council.

    Overall

    This book dragged me in to its strange and wonderful world. I enjoyed the contrast of the two lifes Kellen lived and really the two worlds that existed in the book, that of Amathalia and the one outside it's gates. I like how the authors keep you guessing about Lycelons intentions, if he's innately evil and selfish. Or if his concerns actually have merit. I cant wait to listen to the next book in the series, so please Audible put out the last two books in this series.

    Young Prince Gaborn of Mystarria is traveling in disguise on a journey to ask for the hand of the lovely Princess Iome of Sylvarresta. Armed with his gifts of strength and perception, the prince and his bodyguard stop at a local tavern, where they spot a pair of assassins who have their sights set on Princess Iome's father. As they race to warn the king, they realize that more than the royal family is at risk - the very fate of the Earth is in jeopardy.

    "Great Story"
    Overall

    Very impressed with the story overall!! A very original idea that sparks a pretty incredible world and equally incredible characters that are constantly changing and evolving...literally. This world also leaves a lot opportunities for the story to go anywhere, and I enjoy the fact that the characters are grounded in good morals. Excellent narration by Ray Porter, and believe me I've suffered through some doosies but Mr. Porter really defines every character with their own tones and inflections. Not sure if it's the narrator or the director of the the narration, but I like that every break or chapter or change in story line is clearly defined.
