In the world of Allwyn, humans are almost extinct. A war among the gods has led to the downfall of humanity and the banishment of their god. A thousand years later, the remaining humans eke out an existence on the fringes of the vast dwarven empire.
In one such settlement known as the Cradle of the Gods, a young man named Ghile is preparing for Rite of Attrition, used by the dwarves to seek out potential vessels for their insane god's return. Meanwhile, Almoriz the Sorcerer and his apprentice Riff arrive in Ghile's village for one of their annual visits, beginning a series of events that will change Ghile's life forever. He is marked as the Stonechosen, and wields powers of the gods themselves.
But Ghile is not alone. Others chosen to fulfill the prophecy are also traveling to the Cradle to seek out and destroy him. The time of the Stonechosen has come.

This audiobook is actually my very first. It was a really good experience that has encouraged me to seek out more audiobooks.
I really enjoyed the whole of it, the combination of the writing and the soothing narration made it overall, memorable.
Mother Brambles, the elderly druid. It was amusing to me because it was a very similar voice to the elderly sorcerer.
I did for the most part. Having read the book physically, it's fairly short and clocking in at 6hrs, it was comfortable for me to listen to during a work shift.
The only reason I didn't give Guy Bethell a 5 for performance was the similarity between two characters' voices. To some it may be confusing, but I think that the book is an excellent choice for anyone.
Ok book to listen to. Its a bit short, which when compared to the price, makes this less than a value. However, the writing is fairly clean, and the story has some interesting tidbits to keep you going. It does feel like its made for the young adult however, and the characters are half a step from being 3D. I am nit picking though, and it was an enjoyable listen. Normally, I would say this is/is not worth a credit, but, due to the length of the book, I am stuck on the line. I hope the second book in the series grows things a little, but it really could go either way.
