Across the Four Lands, peace has reigned for generations. But now, in the far north, an unknown enemy is massing. More troubling than the carnage is the strange and wondrous power wielded by the attackers—a breed of magic unfamiliar even to the Druid order. Fearing the worst, the High Druid dispatches a diplomatic party under the protection of the order’s sworn guardian, Dar Leah, to confront the mysterious, encroaching force and discover its purpose.

Once upon a time, in an alleyway in the slums of the City of Lockes, a young and somewhat lonely boy named Sam Haversford turns a group of teenage douchebags into stone completely by accident. Of course, this catches the attention of a higher power, and Sam's pulled from the only world he knows to become an apprentice to the king's wizard, Morgan of Shadows.

Couldn't make it through the first chapter, the author performance made me quit. I couldn't keep listening to a world where everyone has such a campy voice.

I just finished binge-listening to these at work over the past week, I'm quite glad to have found a preview of Geography Club on youtube by chance. I'm 27 now and really could have used books like these when I was younger.

Such a great story, though it wad hard to get through at times because you feel as helpless as Elminster while he suffers at the mercies of an archdevil.
