    "The Innocent Mage is come, and we stand at the beginning of the end of everything." Being a fisherman like his father isn't a bad life, but it's not the one that Asher wants. Despite his humble roots, Asher has grand dreams. And they call him to Dorana, home of princes, beggars, and the warrior mages who have protected the kingdom for generations. Little does Asher know, however, that his arrival in the city is being closely watched by members of the Circle, people dedicated to preserving an ancient magic.

    In a family torn apart by poverty and violence, Hekat is no more than an unwanted mouth to feed, worth only a few coins from a passing slave trader. But Hekat was not born to be a slave. For her, a different path has been chosen. It is a path that will take her from stinking back alleys to the house of her God, from blood-drenched battlefields to the glittering palaces of Mijak. This is the story of Hekat, slave to no man.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really hate the main character hekat. She does not have a single redemeing quality tht makes me like her. She is full of hate, a user and doesn't respect a single character in the book. She is horrible.

    I would show how she evolved as a person. Grows to discover the good things in men and women. To embrace all of the strengths and weaknesses of her social group and to leverage them. I am actually routing for the demons in this book because I want her to be taken out. This is just a bad character.


    If you’ve listened to books by Karen Miller before, how does this one compare?

    I've listen to almost all of the books Karen Miller has written and for the most part, I enjoy her work. This book was also well written with an interesting storyline and well developed characters. I just can't stand the main character. I will not be buying the next two books. That is the a very rare occurrence for me and a statement as to how bad this character is.


    Which character – as performed by Josephine Bailey – was your favorite?

    I like War Leader, the War Lord, Vodka, pretty much any character oer than the main character.


    Did Empress inspire you to do anything?

    Yes stop listening

    "The evil foretold has risen...and we are all that stands between it and the end." Asher has come a long way for a fisherman's son. Together with his friend Prince Gar, he has defended their kingdom against its bitterest enemy, but at great cost. Now, the evil mage Morg is preparing for his most deadly assault. Desperate, trapped in a broken body, Morg has little time and fewer scruples. And he has a plan. As Gar and Asher unwittingly fall into a dangerous deception, Morg gets ever closer to his goal.

    Bruce says: "Well crafted heroic Fantasy"
    "Excellent story, excellent narrator"
    Overall

    I would highly recommend this book. The narrator really brings out the drama of this story and it is easy to get lost in the story and narration. I loved this book.
