    "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"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The first book in this series held promise, but that was all. The Awakened Mage covered maybe a 2 months time frame in which the characters barely accomplished anything. The first and second book combined would have made an okay book, but separately the second book was a failure in my opinion.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Sum of All Men; The Runelords


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I feel the narrator did a fair accounting of a poorly written series.


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

    Mainly disappointed in a drawn out series and an over indulges in the characters ranting and anger at each other and where prophecy was leading them.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the 5 books connected to this one at your own risk of disappointed. I know the two I did read, I was disappointed and I'm inclined to listen to the other readers on the rest of the books.
