Publisher's Summary

Falsely accused of a crime, John Gatsby follows the real perpetrator through a mirror in an effort to clear his name. A stranger in a strange land, John arrives to find himself in a world at war, and he is immediately drawn into a quest that will save the world or extinguish everything good in it forever.

Unable to find the mirror that brought him to the new world, John has no option but to risk his life and join the forces of good in their conflict. John can only hope for a brighter future; there's no looking back.

wasted potential

interesting premise but relatively weak execution. nonexistent/poorly displayed world building which was disappointing as I'd have loved to have explored the world more. flat characters and weak inorganic interactions. no character growth. no real rising action/climax. it all seemed a bit rushed. didnt enjoy it in the slightest until about half way through. frequent recurring usage of the offensive term "midget." decent prose though a bit disjointed at times. theres potential here but an overhaul needs to be done, I may pick up the next one if I'm bored or lacking for reading material.

narrator was decent. no real vocal range or character differentiation. pacing was weak, had to listen to it at 1.65x speed for it to be tolerable. spoke clear and concise with good enunciation however there were several words not pronounced phonetically correct.

Decent performance by the narrator.

Horrible story. I fell asleep about an hour in, and am just deleting it from my BlackBerry. I am returning it to Audible and getting a refund.
