Publisher's Summary

In a world beset by plagues, Tyrus of Kenatos has made it his life’s work to end the devastation.

Yet when he first ventures into the Scourgelands to uncover the secret of the plagues’ origin, he barely makes it out alive after being ambushed by a mysterious, unseen enemy.

Tyrus knows the plagues will rise again - more powerful than ever before - and he is determined to complete his mission. To aid in his new quest, he summons his nephew Annon and his niece Hettie - both of whom possess an innate magic called the fireblood - and a pack of unlikely allies.

But as the group sets out on its journey, the ruthless ruler of Kenatos, the Arch-Rike, has other plans - deploying a legion of minions who will stop at nothing to destroy them. For if they succeed, the truth will be revealed: about a Druidecht secret of a forgotten magical race, a deadly betrayal, and a hidden child who could be the key to banishing the plagues.

    Story
    "Slow start, mediocre characters, + cliff hanger."

    It takes a good while for the story to get going. The author could have developed the characters more given the length of the story. That said, the author did create interesting settings and a good plot. The book would have benefited however from tightening up some of the overview descriptions and incorporating events from the characters' histories and memories. While wheeler is better than most at shifting between plot lines of the disparate groups and individuals, I'm tired of authors using a cliff hanger to get you to buy the next book. I'd rather buy a book in a series because I have come to like the characters and story line.

    "Wonderful voices for the characters"
    Would you listen to Fireblood again? Why?

    I will definitely listen to Fireblood again. It is a trilogy book 2, Dryad Born came out in February so, of course, I had to go back and read book 1, Fireblood first to refresh my memory. This time, Whispersync for Kindle was only $1.99, so I added it. What a wonderful interpretation of Jeff Wheeler's story. I especially liked to hear the pronunciation of the terms used.

    Story
    "If you don't expect too much you'll be pleased."

    I have to admit that about half way through the audio book I was ready to quit and move on to something else. The story felt like it had the depth of a series of short stories and not the rich character development you see in contemporary fantasy epics. That being said I found the second half of the book to be far more enjoyable. There are lots of fantasy novels I'd recommend before this one but I would say it was a good early attempt by an author who makes his living doing something else. I have great hopes for Jeff Wheeler that as he continues to improve his craft the world / character depth that is the hallmark of fantasy will find its way into his stories.

    Reasons to purchase:
    • The story is faithful to what you see in other contemporary fantasy and is enjoyable as a whole
    • The author appears to get better as the story goes so I have hopes that his next novel will be even better

    Reasons to avoid:
    • I found the narrator's performance to be a distraction. He wasn't terrible, just not someone I'd like to hear again if possible. I'm a little spoiled since I've listened to some great narrators so listening to Mr. Page wasn't as enjoyable as it might have been.
    • Some of the scenes were awkward and could have used more editing. A good story at the core but a few areas could have been improved greatly with more editing.

    Summary:
    If you're searching for an epic to fall in love with, this isn't the one. If you're looking for a generally good time without high expectations you'll be pleased.
