After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

Kids at my school love this book and I got it on a whim to see if it was as good as they said. It sure was. I've listened listened to it three times already and checked out the others from our library. After recently seeing last Monday that it has spent 180 weeks on Audible's kids list - quite an accomplishment - I checked Audible today and decided to write a review based on my experience. After listening to all eight books, I can see why people of all ages love it. This is an excellent book. The narration is tops and the writing is tops.
