An evil stirs, casting a shadow across the Islands. Two men begin quests to find the source of the darkness. One is a young scholar, given no choice but to follow the path ahead. Tragedy shapes him, nearly driving him to despair; an inner struggle pervades his journey. The other is a warrior forced to the task through a sense of responsibility. His royal blood and his knighthood drive his course. Their searches, though separate, have the same goal: to find whatever or whoever may be responsible for the darkening of their world. This book tells the story of their journey and the creatures, both friend and foe, that they meet along the way.

The story appears to be a solid introduction to a rather interesting new world, yet its with a bit of wonder but with little passion, that we never quite get into the fun stuff. It builds to what I can only imagine would be an exciting and intriguing next chapter, but admittedly not a lot happens in this one. Its not very long, so was time well spent, admittedly just would have preferred there be more to the story rather than TO BE CONTINUED...
The wraiths are described in just enough detail to inspire awe at their monstrous visage, yet not so detailed as to derail the fear at their assaults.
He has a clear voice, easy to understand and follow. His pace needed a bit of development and the recording could have been cleaned up a bit. There is a slight squeak every now and again. But as a narrator he was comfortable and I would like to hear what he could do with a completed story.
It does because the story doesn't really end.
This book is phenomenal. The description of each situation, character, and creature paints a wonderful picture that I never wanted to end. I listened to it in one sitting, and will be giving it another listen very soon!
The descriptions of everything are so perfect, you can see everything exactly like the author wants you to
This is one of the best narration I have experienced, It is so easy to distinguish each character and what is going on simply by listening along as he paints this amazing story for you.
I loved that there are two main characters, going through very similar ways, who lead you through their journey in different ways.
I highly recommend this book
