Publisher's Summary

The people of Uztar have long looked to the sky with hope and wonder. Nothing in their world is more revered than the birds of prey and no one more honored than the falconers who call them to their fists.   

Brysen strives to be a great falconer - while his twin sister, Kylee, rejects her ancient gifts for the sport and wishes to be free of falconry. She’s nearly made it out, too, but a war is rolling toward their home in the Six Villages, and no bird or falconer will be safe. Together, the twins must journey into the treacherous mountains to trap the Ghost Eagle, the greatest of the Uztari birds and a solitary killer. 

Brysen goes for the boy he loves and the glory he's long craved, and Kylee to atone for her past and to protect her brother's future. But both are hunted by those who seek one thing: power.  

In this first young-adult fantasy audiobook in a trilogy, Alex London launches a soaring saga about the memories that haunt us, the histories that hunt us, and the bonds of blood between us.

Ready for more

Overall I would definitely recommend this story. I struggled a little with the beginning, but then I got sucked right in and couldn't wait to listen again. I wasn't overly fond of the male voice narrator, but that could have been because the volume was so much lower for him and I always had to adjust it between readers.

Enjoyable

I liked the book. just wish they didnt switch off between female and Male narrators. otherwise it's a good book learning about what can come if you believe and try and that you will lose a lot to try and find it.

Interesting Start to a Trilogy

Excited to see where book two goes. Think I might try falconry in the upcoming months.
