Publisher's Summary

Ruthless wizards vie for a vacant throne, unaware that their actions could alter the balance of magic and the fate of the Eight Wizardoms.

Lord Taladain is dead, the result of an exotic scheme made possible by the Eye of Obscurance, an amulet so dangerous, simply knowing it exists can bring grave danger. What if the amulet fall into the wrong hands?

With a neighboring wizardom in chaos, Wizard Lord Malvorian seeks to expand his power, capturing prayers meant for another wizard lord and strengthening his magic beyond anything ever recorded. The world will tremble should Malvorian's power rise to that of two gods.

Balance of Magic continues the Fate of Wizardoms saga, an epic fantasy adventure filled with magic, intrigue, schemes, and betrayal, perfect for fans of Wheel of Time or Riyria Chronicles.

Loved Book 2!

I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, and the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great series, I can be very critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. Travis Baldree does a great job in narrating all voices this book. It was a very enjoyable listen and I didn't have any issues distinguishing between characters.

As to the story, I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that. However, I will say that it is book 2 in a historical fiction series where some of the characters have magic. The author has done a great job at continuing this series. It still has great characters that continue to develop and a story line with l twists and turns. You won't be disappointed if you give it a try, but I recommend reading book 1 first!

Can't wait for the next installment!

In this sequel to Eye of Obscurance, the author does a great job at deepening both the plot and characters. The development of the characters was especially good and it kept interested in series. I'm looking forward to the next installment. The narration was also good, bringing the story to life.

Great read

Balance of Magic (Fate of Wizardoms #2). my seventh read from author Jeffrey L. Kohanek. Picks up seamlessly from the end of the first book. Well-written with intricately developed characters you can invest heavily in and the storyline with its intricate twists & surprises as the tension & suspense ratchets up throughout the book’s length. 342 pages but reads even longer with the attention to detail written into the story. Kohanek’s fantasy worlds have become one of my favorite fantasy reads. I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Travis Baldree. I look forward to reading more in this series. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Action packed!

This story was full of action and excitement. The story is full of narrow escapes and surprises. The main characters were great and funny to listen to quarrel back and forth. Lots going on in the story, and Definitely one to pay close attention to so you get the whole epic landscape. I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Great continue for the series

I enjoyed listening to this series, I had checked out book 1 and now book 2. it continues to really draws you in with the wording.

Best of all this second book continues where the first left off, so there is no missing pieces that leave you wondering what happened between book one and book two.

Narrator continues to do a great job on voices, even down to making age appropriate voices.

Things just keep getting more unpredictable

This story started out pretty generic in book one of the saga, though it did enough interesting things to keep my interest. This second installment surpasses the first, expanding upon what makes the world and story unique, while adding in a handful of more generic elements which nonetheless feel fitting and not obligatory.

Without spoiling too much, this book did a lot of things I didn't see coming. Every time I thought I'd figured out who would live and die, someone did the opposite.

An entirely enjoyable story, and one I look forward to continuing.
