Publisher's Summary

Dragged to an unfamiliar continent transformed by war and monstrous creatures, Cleve's path home has never been less clear. With a place in a king's plot, a princess who wants to marry him, and the companionship of a brash Sartious mage, Cleve learns that - while some battles are won with a sword - others are played out through a more delicate dance.

But Cleve has never been one for delicacy.

Soon he's making tidal waves in every puddle he crosses on his path to return home.

NOTE: It's recommended that Bastial Energy and The Sartious Mage be listened to before this novel, but it doesn't matter which book is listened to first between those two.

Great addition to the series, great narration!

Any additional comments?

I really have enjoyed this series quite a bit, but was a bit apprehensive about this title since the author went with a different narrator; however I was very pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the new narrator. I normally hate when authors go with a new narrorator because I attach their voice with the characters and the storyline, but this felt like a very smooth transition. (I listened to these titles back to back) I didn't think twice about the new narrator, he did a fantastic job.

The story continues after book 1 and 1.5, and I suggest that you read/listen to both title before this book. The previous books both lead into this title, and it seems to bring them together well.

poor narration

Awkward pauses & A monotone voice summarize the narration of this great book. I love this series but the narration was so bad that I couldn't hardly pay attention

Review

It was not the best story I have ever read or listened to but still enjoyable. however, the narrator was, quite frankly, awful. His intonation and expression is almost non-existent and his emphasis is in all the wrong places. also, he makes the characters seem bland and whiney.
