In a universe where technology and magic co-exist, Nicholas Lyons desires one thing: to serve his queen as a Space Knight in the Royal Trident Forces. But when his final mission as an Academy cadet goes horribly wrong, Nicholas discovers he possesses illegal magical abilities that grant him power far beyond that of a normal man, knight, or mage. When a clandestine assignment lands Nicholas on the worst starship in the kingdom’s fleet, he finds a motley crew of warriors hiding their own terrible secret. Death and betrayal lurk around every corner.

I don't like to leave bad reviews, but I really didn't like this book. The characters were so poorly developed I ended up just disliking them completely. It seemed like all the men were badasses and all the women were attractive placeholders. The story kept repeating itself constantly. The beginning was great though. The first thirty minutes was amazing scene building. Then it just...went downhill.
Nick Podehl does amazing voices and couldn't fault his work.

When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book really grew on me. I wasn't sure where it was heading in the beginning, but by the end I wanted the next book straight away so I could keep going with the story. Narrator is really good, and the pace, while slow sometimes, is well worth slogging through.

What about Tim Gerard Reynolds’s performance did you like?

Excellent range of voices.

Any additional comments?

Give it a shot. You won't regret it.
