Magic can make you invincible, if it doesn't get you killed first.
Aric and Fadan are half-brothers. Both sons of the Empress, but only one of them the son of the Emperor. A decade ago, Fadan's powerful father tore the Empire in two by outlawing the use and practice of magic. Forbidden from seeing each other, Aric and Fadan defy the Emperor and wander the vast Imperial Citadel until one night, they stumble upon an ancient Manual of Magic. They are faced with a choice: take the book straight to the Emperor or see if one of them has the forbidden magical talent. Their world is turned upside down and the half-brothers find themselves swept away as tragedy and conspiracy separate them, sending each to either end of the Empire. In a world of dark mages, massive creatures, and vengeful gods, one will train as a Dragon Hunter while the other taps into magical powers that could spell his execution.
Dark forces are moving in the shadows and no one in the Empire is ready for what's to come. Will Aric and Fadan survive to ever see each other again?

Audio book lover!
The story was fresh and original and the narrator was very good at giving each character a distinct voice and personality. This was more of a performance than a narration! I eagerly await the next book in the series.and hopefully it will be narrated, excuse me performed by Todd Menesses as well.
