The young world of Onneron has known peace for years. But now unease has spread across the land as disagreements between factions threaten each other's way of life.
The Brothers of the Onneron College dedicate themselves to higher learning and to mastering Paths of magic. They wish to remain independent, but the Onneron Church feels threatened by their ability to heal and vies to take control of their order. Treace, bullied and belittled, is unaware of the plan his deceased father has for him. A mentor sets him upon a path to join the prestigious college. Even if he is accepted, the tides of change are coming.
To Treace it's not about where we end up - it's the Paths we take to get there that matter.
Path of the Calm is the first book in the epic Saga of the Wolf series that follows Treace as he grows into a young man. It explores the bonds of friendship, deception, life lessons, love, swordplay, and magic.

Flawless, "genius" protagonist who is great at everything he does. Typical pure evil antagonists. Many of the decisions made by the main and supporting characters seem unreasonable and only serve to force the story in the direction intended by the author. Many of the reactions and decisions are naive at best and just outright unbelievable at times. On multiple occasions, you'll be able to foresee (well in advance) what the terribly shallow, evil antagonists have planned, but our "genius" hero and his friends are completely blindsided. This was painful to finish.
Extreme wish fulfillment where the protagonist is the smartest, most noble, most talented at literally everything, with no flaws to speak of.
Poor world building that makes the whole thing feel very small.
Defent enough performance.
Magic. Epic. Creative.
Treace is a strong lead character and I am eager to see what he becomes. I love the dynamics of magic, the college and church. The author had a fantastic idea for a series and I am happy he was able to share it with us!
Fantastic performance. Loved the accent, it really brought the story to life.
Definitely! There are not enough hours in the day!
Cannot wait for the second audiobook in this series.
The damn character is too good, can't see two steps on the story to see what's coming, forgives people like he's the second Jesus, damn it's not that easy to see a girl you like with somebody else, especially if that character is a peice of crap. You don't just let that stuff go by and still like somebody like that. The disgust of somebody like that would destroy anything you could feel.... but does this character have realistic responses, ha nope. dammit I want a book that makes sense, not This stupid too good character that just looks pathetic. Ya, all This anger at the book could be put in one sentence, it's this. This character is pathetic and I couldn't respect him.
The narrator does not help this seemingly young adult fantasy move along. Though his voice is rich in a nice baritone feel his lack of enthusiasm drains much of the storyline.
The story line itself could be very good if given its head and not stilted to a more youthful audience. I did find myself wanting to see what would happen at the end of the book, but not enough to start book two right away.
not one person how really listen to this book will like it maybe good back ground cheater.
0.00000% imagination for the main protagonist. he a little kid how is really strong for his size and can make a sword after a one or two year of blacksmiths work like $&@# hell he can!
he only needs 2 years to totally master a two handed sword skill and he is smart. real hate making a OP hero and then that same good guy is easily out played by sum stupid little trick at the end left helpless.
him going to the collage was stupid it had almost nothing to do with his skill progression he got more out off talking with a friend for like 2 min near the end of story about how not to look down.
Do not buy this book
"It took a little bit of time to get into the storyline I like the begetting though better than the"
The preparation for the next book was done very nicely. I enjoyed how are you mixed magic and power together and how the conflict continues between God and man
I felt the book is great overall and it is sensible. But the main character gets annoying after a while. Satisfying things seem to happen but for some reason I don't get the emotional reward all that often from these big events. I didn't really feel like I was drawn in to the whole premise since there's no intricate designs tying anything outside of their corner in the world.
I am sure things will get a bit more interesting as the new books come out. 4/5
"waiting eagerly for book two"
loved it and wished it lasted longer. hopefully book two will be made available as audio soon.
"I love this book!!"
I find it really hard to find a book and a narrator that's any good but I have to say this is the best book I've listened to in ages and I listen to ALOT! It's a bit rusty in the first 5-6 chapters but it gets better and better as it goes on. Well worth a listen and I can't wait for the next edition! Well done Tim Bruce :)
"Good, just a small issue..."
my only issue was that the reader had a slightly strange pace when he spoke and often paused at moments when I felt there shouldn't have been one. This was irritating at first but I got used to it by about chapter 7.
