    Gil Tyner has plans for the future: He’s going to be a computer programmer in the bustling technology Mecca of Silicon Valley. And as his 21st birthday approaches, he’s on the cusp of realizing his goals. But fate has other plans. A note from his mother on his birthday propels Gil into The Buffer Zone, seven magical kingdoms that stand between our world and the realm of the immortal elves. Gil’s about to learn that plans can change. When destiny calls, he’ll discover that the life he’d imagined and the life he’ll lead will be very different.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Son of the Hero to be better than the print version?

    No. I like the print version better, I grew up on it. The Narration was a bit lacking, The acting was fine but the character is supposed to be 21 and the narrator sounded more like a College professor than a student.


    What other book might you compare Son of the Hero to and why?

    Son of the Hero is a nice escape from super complicated fantasy(though I enjoy that too). There is a small cast and the story goes by fast. I'd say fans of Simon R. Green's NIghtside stories might find this fun, or fans of JIm Butcher's The Dresden Files.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole foray into the evil Elflord's Kingdom was good. The Climatic battle was really well written I thought.


    Any additional comments?

    Again the narration. The acting was fine just hard to buy him as a college kid.
