Publisher's Summary

Journey back to the city of Amaford through the eyes of someone new.

Roland, a Halfling from the small town of Berstead, journeys into the depths of the infamous city looking to escape his past. Employed as an apprentice to a master scribe, he finds himself within the city's Tin District. Discover how despite his calculative, tentative nature, and social awkwardness Roland finds everything he previously lacked. Until the presence of a mysterious voice sends his world spiraling into the chaos that is Amaford.

Great Story!

I liked the way the author let the progression build so as to keep the listener interested in the narrative. The story makes an unexpected change in the storyline that is definitely different than one would expect.
The narration was well performed with good vocal pressure.
I recommend this audiobook for ages 12 and older due to some violence.
I was given this audiobook for free and I freely give it my opinion and rating

Good stuff

I enjoyed this as an easy going listen. While it wasn’t as good as How Not To
Be A Rogue, it was a great follow up. If you don’t mind a laugh an mild language then this book is for you. Sean Duregger is an excellent choice of narrator. Look forward to the next instalment. Definitely worth the cost of a credit. Many thanks to Zack Brooks, an Sean Duregger for the opportunity to listen for free

Fantastic story.

It always amazes me how an author can, with just a few words, create. Be it creating an image of a person, a sense of emotion or an entire world, the power of words never ceases to amaze me,
My reason for this opening statement is I am astounded that in just 4 short hours Zack Brooks has created a living, breathing world, an incredibly likeable character and made me equal parts saddened by his plight and excited for his tale.

This is a strangely emotive story that touches on such subjects as racism, loss and guilt and I grew in just a few short hours to really care Roland and I was really cheering for him through all the difficult situations he finds himself in and Sean Duregger's excellent narration really brought the little man to life.

I admit that when it ended I was sad to see his tale end so suddenly and I can only hope that, one day, I'll get to experience more of Roland's exploits in Amaford and maybe, just maybe, visit Berstead.
