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.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is most likely best for teenagers. Not nearly as captivating as Harry Potter was for adults. Very predictable story line.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeremy Scott again?

Yes

Quite honestly one of the weakest stories I've ever gotten on Audible. Plan to request a refund. Not anywhere near the caliber of Outlander, by any stretch.

High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown.

I'm not a big reviewer, but have to share that I was unable to even make it through the second part of this book. BORING. And the narrator is one of the worst. Probably the coolest guy - but his voice is very difficult for me to listen to. Wish I could get both my money and my time back.
