the narrator's pronunciation was poor, though his character voices were good. the story dragged on for hours with very little plot advancement, and an anticlimactic finish.

Prince Ronan Latimer emerges from the Tournament of Knights as its youngest champion in five hundred years. A champion who's earned the right to absorb ancient Meranthian battle magic. Battle magic that places him among the ranks of an elite group of men and women dedicated to preserving Meranthian culture and upholding its law. But what should be a time of celebration ends in horror as Ronan's mother, Queen Arianne, falls victim to an assassination plot. Ronan's thirst for revenge threatens to destroy the life of his only friend and leave the kingdom in shambles.
