    Booted from one exclusive school to the next since his foster mom's death three years ago, 16-year-old Seph McCauley knows he's different. But he doesn't understand why he can summon menacing ravens, freeze summer ponds, and torch all he touches. And then Seph makes the mistake of trusting his new headmaster. If you like Harry Potter, you'll love Seph McCauley.

    Story

    I have enjoyed reading several of Chima's books. I am TERRIBLY disappointed by the audible version, however. The reading and the directing are AWFUL. The mouth noises the reader makes (smacking, gulping, etc) suggest an amateur reader and director. The noises are so bad that my son gags and cannot listen. And the heavy breathing into the microphone is terribly distracting. Listen to Hunger Games or Percy Jackson to hear a good reader! I hope future books from this author are NOT read by this reader.

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    I wish Jesse Bernstein was the reader for the Heros of Olympus series as well.

    Story

    I love these books. My kids and I have read All of them, so I thought we could share them on Audible, but we cannot. The reader breathing into the microphone was so bad that I had to listen in small chunks to get through the story. And my son deciced it just was not worth it. He is not the worst reader I have encountered here, but I will definitely NOT download anything else he reads. I sincerely hope that the Brotherband series are read by someone else.
