    Young Lerris is dissatisfied with his life and trade, and yearns to find a place in the world better suited to his skills and temperament. But in Recluce a change in circumstances means taking one of two options: permanent exile from Recluce or braving the dangergeld, a complex, rule-laden wanderjahr in the lands beyond Recluce, with the aim of learning how the world works and what his place in it might be. Many do not survive. Lerris chooses the dangergeld.

    Captain Skurvy says: "Epic Fantasy"
    "Crafting a world."

    What made the experience of listening to The Magic of Recluce the most enjoyable?

    The fact I could finally listen to it with my wife. Honestly, this was the series I was most bummed not to see when I signed up for Audible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is more about the series as a whole. Recluce is very much a world where the extraordinary deeds of heroes are broken down and shown to be ordinary. Almost every book is a different time in the planets history and you meet the characters others books talked about being powerhouses and learn the real stories of how things were. Because these people are in their own ways ordinary sometimes it doesn't seem as flashy as other popular books in the main stream right now, but something is just special to me.

    If you ever wish the crafters could be the heroes instead of the warriors this might be for you.


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    I like the way Kirby voices how Lerris is bored with the world. It made for a great drinking game.


    Any additional comments?

    It might not make you want to run to your friends screaming omg!!!, this is crazy action filled goodness, lets sell it to HBO!!!

    But it is a world I think you will be satisfied in knowing the history and people of.
