    "Good Read"

    The characters are evolving nicely. They are becoming a likable bunch that makes you want to root for the underdog.

    Story
    "Turning Into A W heel of Time Rip Off"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first book in this series very much. I thought it was fun and original. This book is pretty good too, don't get me wrong. It seems to me though that as the story goes along it starts borrowing more and more from the Wheel of Time series. Male mages that have to be bounded or go insane? I think I've heard that one already. Othe than that, and they say that immitation is the highest form of flattery, it is a pretty good book. I just picked up the third one and am curious enough about it to get started. If you're loing for something not too heavy with some pretty decent humor scattered throughout, check it out.

    "main character is annoying."

    There are so many things i could complaint about, but ill just say one thing instead. by the end j was hoping the main character would die to end the childish stupidity of this story.

    "Great!!!"

    This book is funny, sad, and passion filled. The author and narrator are so good it's almost impossible to stop listening to go to bed.

    "Pretty good story"

    Took me some time to get into it in book one, but once I did I was hooked. Story is very good. Not sure I like his writing style, but it's easy enough to get past. Also not a fan of the audio book reader. I feel like it could have been read better. Overall though it is worth the read.

    Story
    "Just 10 hrs ofStalling before a Massive Execution!"

    I guess he's learning his abilities and about politics, but to me the entire book is just a stall for what was supposed to be a massive battle. Then, with just the snap of your fingers, the battle is here and all the invaders are dead. If it wasn't for the fact that Mort, Marcus, Penny, Rose and the rest are fantastic characters that keep you entertained, it'd would be just a terribly boring insert in the series.

    You get information from this book and like I said it's a pleasant enough read. You'll get enjoyment out of it. Todd McLaren does a great job and Manning keeps you interested.
