The humans have no magic and are hunted for sport, but that is about to change. War is coming....
The Sun Dragon spawned nine lesser dragons which devoured their parent for the power the elder possessed. These young dragons fought for choice bits of the Sun Dragon, but each only managed to eat a portion, thus giving them specific powers. Over time, these foul dragons were hunted down and slain by heroes of old. When each body rotted away, nothing remained save for nine Jewels - each the lens of a dragon's left eye. These Nine Eyes, or Jewels, form the basis for all magic in the world.
The Haven Series is a fantasy epic about the Nine Jewels of Power, each of which represents a different form of magic. The Red Jewel, known as Sang, gives the wielder power over Blood Magic. The Blue, named Lavatis, can call the Rainbow and rules the Sky. Amber Magic is a short introductory book in this epic series of fantasy novels by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

I gave up on fantasy when I left my teens. B V is such a wonderful author that I thought to give it a go. Struggled reading it myself and stopped early in. The book builds the story slowly. I then picked it up on audio. I read to my kids mind you, but the narrator here was top notch. Felt like I was IN the story. Couldn't stop it once I started. Rich story once you stay with it and traditional fantasy lovers will eat it up is my guess. Going to buy the next audio book right NOW. Love your work BV! Keep going!
This audio book is good, but it is extremely short. After lessening to it I fell more like it was the first half to a longer book than a book in it own right.
Retained my attention, but not Larson's best work. Apparent pacing & character development flaws. Still good enough to check out the next two Haven books to see if these minor qualms get sorted out.
I really enjoy his Star Force series
Performance was fine but did not like the book
I found the book boring, I do like his Star Force series.
