Publisher's Summary

"I can command storms, summon fire and unmake stone," Balfruss growled. "It's dangerous to meddle with things you don't understand."

Balfruss is a battlemage, sworn to fight and die for a country that fears and despises his kind.

Vargus is a common soldier - while mages shoot lightning from the walls of the city, he's down in the front lines getting blood on his blade.

Talandra is a princess and spymaster, but the war may force her to risk everything and make the greatest sacrifice of all.

Magic and mayhem collide in this explosive epic fantasy from a major new talent.

    "It's Good But Why Should I Care....."
    What made the experience of listening to Battlemage the most enjoyable?

    Matt Addis's performance is what made this book enjoyable.


    Would you recommend Battlemage to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes.... If they like Game of Thrones.....

    That should say it all


    Have you listened to any of Matt Addis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are a lot of moments that made really feel apart of the world. Anytime Vargus talked about brotherhood I felt like I was there apart of something bigger


    Any additional comments?

    My problem with this book is how much of a downer it ends on. If your a fan of game of thrones this will be right up your ally.

    This is suppose to be the first part of a trilogy but having read the description of the next and knowing I will be dealing with new characters with new issues I just don't know why I should care.

    The books greatest weakness is the fair number of segments that could have been cutout. They makes the book feel longer than it is and more than once I checked to see how much time was left. Sadly most of the are Talandra POV so at first I thought I just didn't like Talandra herself.

    I really don't know what to make of this book but again I say if you like game of thrones and want something like that but with more magic then this would be a good choice.

    "Outstanding Story & Performance"

    This book was a pleasant surprise. The author did an outstanding job of creating interesting and fully fleshed out protagonists, and placed them into a well thought out conflict. The performance was well done but not acted out, and refreshingly free of mispronounced words.

    "Awesome book"

    I really enjoyed this audio book! I do have to add in my two cents about a few misleading reviews. I noticed that a lot of reviews are saying that this is like Game of Thrones and so on....The only thing this story and GOT have in common are British voices and swords. However, if one is familiar with the lore from Bioware's Dragon Age, then you will notice a lot of similarities with the mention of fear of mages, the maker, the veil and more...this just has a lot more gore :).

    "good story"

    I had a hard time with the transition from one group to another. Several times it happened so fast I didn't realize he was talking about someone else for a minute and has to back track to figure out what just happened. Then realized I was confused due to the fact that he had switched to talking about a different group of characters.

    "A little slow."

    Story line good, story too slow. Performance was nice, characters made to come to life, once again, too slow.

    Any additional comments?

    Great listen! Matt Addis performs masterfully. Stephen Aryan paints the story so vividly you can see it easily in your mind. The only thing that could have made this story better was if it had been in three parts. I want more!
