Publisher's Summary

One world of magic. One world of reason. Two lives intertwined in connection mistaken for a dream.

By day, Kyrus Hinterdale lives the mundane life of a scribe. By night, he lives out the adventures of Brannis Solaran, a failed sorcerer turned knight. When Brannis leads his battalion into the forest on a routine scouting mission, they are overwhelmed by a goblin force. While leading the survivors to regroup and prepare the empire for the inevitable war, Brannis struggles to understand why a scribe from his own dreams, suddenly seems to be able to perform the magic he never could.

As the two discover the reality of their connection, their comfortable lives begin to unravel. Now they have to share knowledge between worlds to stay a step ahead of the mysteries piling up. Who is behind the unprovoked goblin attacks? How will a world dominated by reason react to the presence of magic? Who is the quiet stranger in the woods who refuses to give his name? And who might be playing a deadly game, with pawns in both worlds?

It's ok.

bHaving read the Black Ocean series, this book was a serious letdown. That said, this being Morin's first series I'm not altogether surprised. This book is alright, but I wouldn't recommended to a friend.
The general outline is alright, but dialogue is rather stilted and awkward, and some characters seem to change personality at the drop of a hat. Though some of that is due to Naramore's preformance, as at times he adds a tone that doesn't fit the writing. At times, the book suffers from a case of telling instead of showing.
If you're looking for something to fill your time, this book isn't bad. If you're looking for a good read, I'd suggest skipping this series and going to Morin's Black Ocean, which is a marked improvement in almost every way, including narration.

brilliant

great story enjoyed listening to this book immensely, if you toil through reviews to find worth in your next book look no further and trust that if you love epic tales of sword or sorcery then this is another great series to fall into.
