There is no calm after the storm. But there is perseverance, ingenuity, and a whole lot of courage.  

Leo's life has been dismantled. Now with his father missing, he must rely on himself more than ever, but he's still young. His older brother does what he can to help, but soon even Andar will rely on Leo to free them from this nightmare. The king's army is taking over the city, against the wishes of every citizen, but there's something special about Leo that might change everything.  

Leo must grow up quickly to achieve his potential, but at a cost. He must join the very people who could destroy everything he cares about.

Good but...

Like the first book in the series, I really enjoyed it but can't figure out why. It was very well written without much action or scope, yet I plan to keep enjoying the series!

Second in the series and another success!

Listened every chance I got. I'll get the next on release day! Narration was a little better to handle this go around. It took me about 2/3 of the first book to get used to Simon Vance. It's a personal struggle for me with every new book to get a feel of how the narrator envisions the author through tone, impersonation, and other elements. Much better for me this go around

Again... skips MAJOR plot lines

This writer is VERY good at writing dialogs but skips over the story as if he's already tired of writing it...
Literally in about 4 sentences, the two main characters enter a world that should be a major plot line, to having finished 4 years training, and are off to a battle... An entire book could have been written about the change in their lives during training, but it was skipped over... Then... They go into a battle where there is more time spent over a confrontation with a superior than on the actual point of the battle, and what was happening...
Probably going to return book 1 and 2.

fantastic series

I am a huge fan of Mr. Narro. I have read all of his books except for the stalwart series which I am currently reading. I have nothing but positive things to say about this series the plot and character development is amazing. With each book I finish I can not wait to start the next. I highly recommend any of Narro's series you will not be disappointed!!!

Slow and Plodding Plot

I won't be listening to anymore of these. Mainly it is how slow the plot moves. The books are short at only 10 hours so when you combine that with a slow moving plot nothing seems to happen. Slow plots are fine with a book that goes 25-30 hours but not here. It is almost like you have only read a chapter then you have to buy the next chapter.

Other problems is that the magic is lame and seems almost useless. In fact the boys learn the basic in a night, then go to magic school for three years and really don't know anything additional. And that is not an exaggeration.

All in all, this is a series to skip.

Too much recap

This truly is a wonderful series, but the author needs to give some credit to its readers. For such a short story, way too much is inhabited by story retelling.

Great listen!

I couldn’t stop listening. The writing pulls you into the characters and their story, while Simon Vance does an outstanding job of narrating.

A bunch of nothing

Book 1 was outrageously good - the promise of greatness was overwhelming, This sequel book is outrageously redundant. It’s like a cheap piggyback off of book one. The story doesn’t expand, the war is no closer than in book one, nothing unexpected, This sequel offers literally nothing, adds nothing. I truly can’t say that enough.

enjoyed

yep. liked this story and it's pace. as usual Mr Vance tells it the way I like it. Although I usually listen a story at 1.10 and even quicker if a chapter is exciting. more interesting things happened in the second book. do wish the books were longer. I recommend waiting for the complete series before starting.
