Almost 3,000 years after an extinction-level event on Earth, mankind seeks to regain its former glory, in a new world where magic and technology collide.
Laney Herder, a commoner in the realm of Wexbury, finds herself thrust into the world of nobles and knights. At the side of her Lady Celeste, Knight of the Realm, she goes on an epic journey from being a simple chicken farmer to one of the greatest heroes of the realm, while helping the Lands of Sparo avoid a second Great Mage War.
Can kindness and innocence defeat the oncoming storm?

Absolutely love this book, the story is different from anything post apocalyptic and keeps you wanting more.
The narration is spot on and brings so much life into the story you swear the movie is playing in your mind.
Would love to see this adapted too the silver screen!
it would be: Amazing, Adorable, and Unique
oh this will contain spoilers
when Laney realized that even the tiniest thing can win the battle and so she took in all the magic she can and used it to pull every last bit of iron from Raneth's Blood suffocating and killing him on his feet
My favorite... I have a lot though but maybe it would be when Celeste show Laney that defense is how you survive and she demonstrated by only defending and beat 4 fully trained knights of the realm. she didn't beat Bowin since she couldn't attack and she couldn't use other's weapon against him. i really like that scene and also... tiny goats!
I wanted to listen to it in one sitting but i had school and all so i had to cut it since it reached 10 hours man, but it was well worth listening to it i can tell you that.
buy this and give it a listen it is definitely worth it trust me I'm atleast 60% an expert at this and Ms. Hollie another homerun with this one!
This book is awesome and only made better with Hollie narrating. Story is so good and keeps you engaged throughout the book. Hands down one of my favorite authors and definitely my favorite book of his.
It didn't feel like it took over 10 hours at all. Holly`s narration brought the characters to life and sucked me right back into the story. I loved it and can't wait for the next story from this duo.
Adept is the first book of one of my favorite series by Erik Schubach. Adding a good book with a narrator as good as Hollie Jackson and you can't lose. Schubach and Jackson are a truly wonderful team. I can't wait for the next book in this series to be available on audible.
I loved this book. I recommended my wife read it, too. It caught me immediately and did not disappoint. I'm excited there is another book to read in the series and have already bought it from Amazon.
Adventure, gentle romance, the author focused on relationship building. Lots of conversation. Lots of well described locations and a beautiful world. some action, little romance.
I bought this because I'd so enjoyed the Valkyrie Chronicles and because I was hoping that Audible would quickly put the complete series on download. I can't wait to here the next instalment.
