A dozen years of peace have passed in the city of White Gryphon - providing well-deserved and much-needed security for the people who had lost their homes in the magical Cataclysm which killed the Mage Urtho, creator of the gryphons. But the inhabitants of White Gryphon have not forgotten their long struggles, and have trained an elite guard force, the Silver Gryphons, to protect their city, and if necessary, to join with the army of the Black Kings for mutual defense.

I completely agree with the review by Paul - this cover art is atrocious! There is not a single character in the book to relate to the male figure (which was originally used for Lindsay Buroker's "Shattered Past"). And the eagle figure bears little resemblance to a gryphon. Please find a more appropriate image for this audiobook.

Apprenticed to a venerable wizard when his hunter and trapper parents disappear into the forest never to be seen again, Darian is difficult and strong willed - much to the dismay of his kindly master. But a sudden twist of fate will change his life forever when the ransacking of his village forces him to flee into the great mystical forest. It is here in the dark forest that he meets his destiny, as the terrifying and mysterious Hawkpeople lead him on the path to maturity.

I've always enjoyed the Valdemar series and couldn't wait for this book to be added to Audible. What a letdown! The narrator sounds as though he is reading to primary school children. His pronunciation of the main character is the worst part of it. How does Darian get pronounced -- Dairy-On (pause) --? I know it's probably too late, but I sure wish the rest of the series will get a new narrator.
