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.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
These Godling novels kept coming out and I wondered. I had not heard of Brian D. Anderson and then I saw this free prequel. This is a great way to discover what you may or may not like. It didn't do it for me, but for you die hard fantasy fans it might. This could be compared to L.E. Modesitt Jr., Raymond Feist or David Eddings.
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
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.
I have most of R. A. Salvitore's books in the Drizzit series. This author is just as good, though less strait forward than Salvitore.
I am an avid reader and listener of all types of books. I am always willing to try any book or audiobook.
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review
Enjoyed listening to this book. It was a short story but would make a fabulous full novel.
Nice insight into Lee's earlier days! Not much else to say other than get rest of the series and then it all fits together.
Derek Perkins did a alright job with this book
Taking a short cut to save time, the Travellers were captured by pirates, who were hunting for the Jewel of Dantenos. Lee Star finder took the opportunity to bargain for his and his companion's freedom. All he had to do was to conquer the demon who was protecting the jewel.
I loved the audio rendition of this book.
"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
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.
"Do I, don't I."
As this was just a taster I'm unsure if I like the story/ series and will need to read a full book to be sure how I feel. So I'm sitting on the fence and offering no option as yet.
"Intriguing appetiser to what can become an epic"
Yes, I enjoyed the story and felt the description had me concocting the imagery of the scenes in my head.
I think all the characters were quite balanced. Each had a strength and a weakness and I couldn't really enjoy one more than another.
The arrogance of the Lee. The humble wisdom of Millet. The brutality of Jalil. He brought those characters out.
The confrontation and realisation of fate between Lee and the Blackness.
There were points in the plot that had me think whether it was likely to have happened or whether it was just a Ex Machina for the story. Also it was a slight dampener to have two separate stories of the of the short story and the prologue preview to have very similar scenes of old guardian failing to protect some artefact. I wonder if repetition is used more often in his other stories.
Loved it, helped my long train journey pass much quicker, thankyou very much audible good job !
story could have been great but much too short to get in to it in all honesty
I liked how the narrator gave the caracter their own voice and I could imagine them them easily. good free read
"A tale of two parts"
I wouldn't recommend Jewel but the free preview of the novel made it sound fun
Yes I intend to pick up the novel previewed after the short story
Evocative, worldly, lush
Millet needs to be be elderly wise and wiry Anthony Hopkins would be brilliant and bring a gravitas to it, Lee Needs to be young dashing a greek god in human form Chris Helmsworth perhaps
The short story isn't bad but it's nothing new either and the characters are all a bit too thin, but the novel preview sounds better, I think the extra space helps the writer here
loved it emencely. fun gritty mesmerising and inspiring very good read want more more more
