    "Gripping, adventure filled and narrated incredibly"

    Royce and Hadrian are at it again. Two intense, adventure filled storylines in this single piece will open your imagination and have you thirsting for more, even while, after finishing the story, you feel you have traversed thousands of miles just alongside of the incredible heroes.

    Take time with this. The journey is incredible.

    "Fantastic"

    I really loved this audiobook. I have read the series before and decided to listen in preparation of Sullivan's new series. This version is very well done and I look forward to listening to the next two.

    "Awesome book and flawless performance!"

    This is the type of book that makes you wish you could be one of the characters. If the others are even as close to as entertaining as this one, I will have a new favorite author. the performance on this book was also amazing, the different voices and accents used, made each character memorable. 5 stars all the way around for me!

    "Very Well Written"

    I enjoyed the writing ad well as the performance. The characters are well developed, but not overdone. The scene description was excellent as was the overall storyline. I'm definitely a fan of this writer and series.

    Story
    "Minority opinion."

    I'm going against the grain by saying this volume is average at best. Book 1 is simply amateur in most aspects. Book 2 is slightly better, but still leaves a lot to be desired.

    It's all quite heavy-handed and mostly unoriginal. There wasn't any length of time where I found myself caring at all about the main characters. The dialogue is fairly dull (a big sticking point for me) and the narration is un-engaging.

    I'll continue on to the 2nd volume (books 3 and 4) and hope something really grabs my attention.

    "excellent"

    Michael did a wonderful job introducing the characters and keeping the story on point. Tim Reynolds performed perfectly to bring the characters to life and kept the action plausible. this is the third time going through the series, love it every time.
