From the world of The Godling Chronicles.
Filled with confidence and no small measure of arrogance, young Lee Starfinder, along with Millet Gristall, set off on their very first adventure. Lee quickly discovers that life beyond Hazrah can be far deadlier than he could have ever imagined. And soon he must learn that muscle and steel cannot replace loyalty, bravery, and friendship.

Im halfway through and intend to finish it since it is a good story and im curious to see if it will be a series worth picking up.
My only complaint is the narrator. He is a good narrator but it was unfortunately a poor fit for this book, he makes Starfinder sound like he is 35 years older than he actually is and that makes it a little harder to follow the story, at least for me. What keep me going is that IT IS a good story.
I want to emphasize that narration is subjective and so I wont give it a lower score because to that as I can see past it.
I love books. Fantasy is my preferred genre but I have been known to read some historical fiction and some werewolf/vampire sets as well.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed this book as well as the narration. I kept yelling at one of the main characters because he was acting like a childish peacock but by the end I liked him a little better.
Good, short, story.
held my interest and left me wanting more of this story but it does not seem to continue in the next book although Lee is in the next book it does not have the rest of his journey or his companion that I know of
#TakeMeAway ~ Love to be swept away by a great story and narrator!
This story was much better than I expected, and I'm glad I came across it. I found a new fantasy series to start!
Nice to have a little bit more of the Godling stories. this is a good short adventure of Lee Starfinder and his sidekick Millet. worth the time to listen to.
Lee Starfinder is an arrogant young man who knows his strength and fighting skills exceed others. He has a special background, as a Godling, that makes him view himself as superior. Lee suffers through the companionship of his servant/assistant, Mill Gristall. They are traveling on Lee’s first adventure when they are distracted on the path by a young woman who appears to be in distress. They move beyond their normal cautious routines to help her only to be led into a trap.
Lee and Mill are captured by a pirate gang who are set on uncovering the rumored Jewel of Dantenos. The leader is convinced he has a reliable map to the treasure. However, they have found a dark, deadly presence in the caves which is killing his men. Lee makes a deal that if he can kill the dark “demon” he and Mill will go free.
Lee has no idea what he is facing when the darkness first attacks. Then it begins to communicate with him. Still, Lee may have taken on more than he can handle. He may find that there are times even Godlings need help from others to succeed.
This was a fast and interesting story. I liked the mysterious tone, the action and the puzzle that leads to survival. Lee isn't the most likeable character at first but he grows on you. Mill on the other hand is a wonderfully warm and strong character. This gives just a little taste of the series, but enough to draw me in so I am interested in the first full book.
Audio Notes: Derek Perkins does a good job of narrating this. He gives each character a distinct voice and he conveys good intensity. I did have to get used to the fact that the voice made Lee seem older than he is. Still, the narration enhanced my enjoyment.
"Good and free"
liked the chapter in the end from the first book more then this short story, but it's free so check it out
"Interesting and well read"
An interesting world with well outlined characters. Didn't catch me fully but I am interested in trying out a book more to see where it leads me. well read.
brilliant book it's now got me hooked on reading the rest of the chronicle's series
"Adventure into Madness"
An enjoyable escape from sanity. The story is of greed and how it can give and take. Also how standing firm about what you want, is always wise.
loved it emencely. fun gritty mesmerising and inspiring very good read want more more more
"Can a man change so much?"
A man who is as arrogant and self centred as Lee Starfinder is presented at the start of the story couldn't change so much, so quicker. I found that a little hard to believe.
I general not a bad story and well narrated.
"Love it "
I really live this book because it is an advencher book and the bit I like is when lee star finder is fighting another gods sun.
"Not really my cup of tea"
I listened to this because it was free, it is not really my type of thing.
If you like the LOTR, classic "quest" type tales with pirates, swords and treasure this should probably appeal to you.
For the type of thing it is , I quite enjoyed it. The narration is not bad either.
