Once Humans had a magical alliance with Dragons. Now they and the other races have been enslaved by the Rhonas Empire – the elves – and can’t even remember the world the way it used to be. But thanks to the intervention of one determined dwarf and the human slave warrior known as Drakis, all of that is about to change.

I've already ordered book 2 - Audible will hopefully get it soon also. Get past the first few chapters and hang on for a wild ride!!! Toward the end I couldn't wait to see what happened next.
There have not been many books I couldn't finish, but this is one. The first 6 chapters were fighting a war we knew nothing about, had no investment in the cause, and no idea what that cause was. I have made it over a quarter of the way thru part 2 and I still have no idea what the war is about. The character names are so foreign and similar that I can't keep up with the characters. The narrator is very good. He's the only reason I stuck it out this far. But I just have to give up. I'm used to books with a lot of different characters, like WOT. But this one, I just don't understand 'who's on first and what's on second'!
I have read a few books by Tracy Hickman and this was the hardest book to listen to that he has written. While I won't give up on Tracy, this one didn't work at all. The narration didn't help either.
This is one that I would like a refund for. I hate thinking that I've waisted a credit on something this bad.
Never have written a review before. Have been reading and listening to fantasy for many years. This narrator is the best I have ever listened to. Buy this book if nothing else then for the narrator. I will look for more books by this narrator!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
