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.

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.

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.

Great story, but...

Story is great! Why is this not a movie??? There was an issue with the audio book however where the beginning syllables of many sentences was cut off. You get used to it after a while, but you would think that would be checked.

Very good.

Looking for to the next one, but I did like the first one more, but that is probably more to do with getting into a new world of wonder.
I do like the classic ending even if it's no surprise.

Decent story

Good, but rather drawn out at times. Likeable characters, nice world building. The narration was above average.
