Publisher's Summary

Jahrys Grent, a young boy from Palor, has only one dream: to become a knight. While he works in his father's shop, he daydreams of fearless knights from tales long ago. He longs to save a princess from treacherous outlaws, overthrow cruel kings, and explore the lands beyond the Farrest Sea and the Western Mountains. 

He believes that a knight fears nothing - until the Hoarding comes to Astenpoole and he experiences fear firsthand. With his family gone and his home destroyed, Jahrys is one of many whose life is turned upside down when he is left abandoned outside the castle walls by the once loved king.

In order to survive, Jahrys is forced to become a Retriever, locating things beyond the castle walls in the Junkland for inhabitants of the castle. When one mission puts him and his friends in danger, he realizes the only way to stop the Hoarding is to get into the castle and find the mysterious princess he had fallen in love with three years before.

We are all Jahrys!

This was a wonderful novel. The world was well thought out and the characters were all uniquely relatable. The technology quite literally captivated me! I found myself longing to have a conversation, have some fine ales, and sing drunkenly at the Archelayne (sp?) with Jahrys and his band of friends! The songs were all catchy and had fun lyrics. There is something in this audiobook for everyone!

Junkland

I enjoyed the story but found it confusing at best.Narration by Paul-Alexandre Petit was a very good narrator.

Fun listen that kept me involved

thoroughly enjoyed this book. characters seemed well fleshed out with decent personalities. At first, I thought it was going to be predictable and formulated, but it quickly slod off those rails to forge its own path.

Good narration helps keep the atmosphere.

While it does deal with death and combat etc, it is handled well, without over the top details, making it good for younger teenagers.

I had my doubts, but the ending made up for it

To start: I absolutely loved the audio ook narrator of this book, he was amazing!

But let's get started on the story:

It is clear that this is a debut book. That is not necessarily a bad thing. It just means that there is still room for improvement in the pace, different pov's and writing. Which I'm sure the author will improve upon in his next books 🤗

This book has several POV's which I always love. Although I have to admit that in some spots the extra POV's weren't really necessary, and in some spots where I really wanted another one, I didn't get one. The author most likely has his reasons for this, but it still made the story a tad repetive sometimes.

The story line itself and the concept was absolutely amazing! I had never thought of Medieval dystopian, and I'm absolutely here for it! It fit perfectly! Although in the beginning we did get a big info dumb (which is not unusual for fantasy books)

All in all, not a bad book, especially for a debut one! I can't wait to see the author's next work
