Publisher's Summary

The debt of the blessed: Within the Thiaran Empire, citizens put on jeweled masks and turn away from those who are taken. As long as one child is sacrificed each month to the Slinks and nobody interferes, their society will thrive.

But 17-year-old Grei’s mind is alive with treason, and he plunges into the heart of a prophecy that will drive the Slinks back to their fiery dimension. All he must do is travel to the capitol city and sacrifice one last innocent.

As Grei wrestles with the prophecy and battles those who would kill him, he hurtles toward his final decision: save the empire, or save his own soul.

Definitely worth a listen

This book was read by the author usually not good but did an excellent job of emphasizing things i had missed in the text version. Audio quality had some hiccups but annunciation and voices were both very good

This is how you give out roses

An author narrating his own work is usually worth clicking on the "sample" (Go ahead!), and he seemed to be a good narrator, so I gave this a shot.

Todd Fahnestock is both a great author and a great narrator. His writing is tight and delightful, the characters are fascinating, dialog is crisp, and it's easy to tell which characters are talking. I have thousands of fantasy books, this one had many new ideas for me. Such as one unexpected splashdown and the aftereffects.

There are perhaps some missed opportunities. For example, one scene has a character traversing a tunnel of treacherous traps she's familiar with, and it's done with delightful grace. Narrator Jeff Hays likely would have likely done a more drolly comedic take on the amusing deadliness of the traps here. It's all still done well, though.

Highly recommended.
