Publisher's Summary

He held the fate of two worlds in his hands....

Once he was an orphan called Pug, apprenticed to a sorcerer of the enchanted land of Midkemia. Then he was captured and enslaved by the Tsurani, a strange, warlike race of invaders from another world.

There, in the exotic Empire of Kelewan, he earned a new name - Milamber. He learned to tame the unimagined powers that lay within him. And he took his place in an ancient struggle against an evil Enemy older than time itself.

Enjoyable and Familiar

When I first bought this book it was missing most of the first chapter.

Audible has resolved this technical issue since I first bought the book and I listened only after the file was restored to its full length 18hrs 22min).

And I found it an enjoyable continuation from the first book Magicians Apprentice.

The story is a familiar one, but well written and the characters are engaging.

Over half the first chapter missing

I reported this issue to audible as soon a started listening to the book, and got a response showing they didn’t really list to my complaint. If you have read-the paperback the audio stops about page 4 and the story pickups up in chapter 2 on page 16. Dropping major story plot lines. Audiobooks need to fix this for their listeners because we bought an unabridged book and end up with an abridged one.

Awesome though chapter 1 was shortened.

What happened to chapter 1? There is a large portion missing about the overseer and his attack on Pug and Pug’s hand injury. Not sure why it was cut out. Not sure I like that.

Great book wish it was all here

This is an awesome adventure, the down side is Chapter 1 is missing most of the chapter, and chapter 2 is missing several parts also. I wish the entire book was available and ready to go.

It’s missing part of chapter 1

I love this story and the performance is great, but it only has 2 pages of the first chapter.

Fantastic and Definitely Worth a Listen

Fantastic story with memorable and fun characters spread across the landscapes of two worlds. Glad that I finally took my best friend's advice and read the series. Definitely worth the time and captivating from beginning to end. Not a stand alone book. You must read book 1 of the Riftwar Saga. While you can glean the gist, you miss too much from the story not read the both and in order. Nicholas provided great depth and variety to the narrative. While I enjoy the book as a whole, he added a unique and engaging quality to the text. His versatility, range and accentuations added to depth and never detracted from the tale told. I highly recommend both book and narrator.

Best fantasy book ever

favorite book series I have read so far a tale of a king, Magician, and a warrior on all of their own different stories all tied to one with just the right amount of politics, fantasy, and just a little romance thrown in
