Whalen Vankin is the world's greatest wizard, and he has only ever personally trained two other wizards.

This series was adored by my son and I. We were hopeful that it would be finished after the author's health issues. Unfortunately it fell incredibly flat and left us wondering about so many loose ends that never got tied up. These characters deserved a much better resolution. Additionally, go back to the original narrator. This one was a significant step down. At least they were for this book.

This is an incredibly written series of books. It is not a genre I thought I would enjoy and truthfully with a different performance or writer I might not have. Give this series a chance and you will not regret it. My only regret is that it finished.

I had heard some talk about this book and the correlating TV show. Seeing that it was written by Neil Gaiman sealed the deal for me. Listening to it was a complete joy. It is well written and amazingly preformed.

The story was interesting, but the narrator is absolutely fantastic. I would recommend anything narrated by David Aaron Baker.
