Good story with some great storytelling.

I listened to this fairly quickly. It grabbed me from the first paragraph. It starts with an interesting premise and really expands on it nicely, with a series of twists and turns that keep the listener interested. The characters are well written, with realistic motivations. It had solid worldbuilding, and the plot is fast paced, leading to a breathtaking final act. Highly recommend this audiobook.

Enjoyable and Entertaining

This is an interesting and entertaining folktale aimed at YA audiences. That said, as a "mature" reader, I think it can be enjoyed by all audiences. Parental guidance is suggested for young audiences as there are scenes involving death and violence, but there is no graphic violence. The tale tells of the annual retelling of the story of "Spirit Warrior," who was killed as a boy, then resurrected to wreak vengeance on a mad and wicked king. But Spirit Warrior finds a higher calling in the non-violent protection of his people. He experiences love, and has to decide whether he will kill the king or follow his own path to justice. The fight scenes were a little confusing to me sometimes, but overall the story was enjoyable and easy to listen to.

The narration was good and well-paced.

Cool YA Fairy Tale

I was immediately captivated by this legendary tale about Spirit Warrior.
Engaging story, and the narration was well done and really gave the story life.
I was drawn into their world and had to keep remembering I was in traffic on my way home :)

I'd be interested in more from both author and narrator, very nicely done and I'd recommend it to friends & family :)

This was a nice drive time listen

While, I thought the story left a little to be desired (too many time I thought, "why didn't the Spirit Warrior just...."), it was overall enjoyable, and I would listen to books from this author again. Also, the story was being told around the camp fire, but there was a large section in the middle, where I think the author forgot that, then towards the end, began interacting with the audience again. That part came off a little awkward.

Ms. Alder did a fine job on the narration. She was very easy to listen to, and played the parts well.

Pretty good legend

This book read /sounded like a legend passed down from generation to generation. I liked that. The story was good, and had all the fantastic elements you could want. There was intrigue, deception, and betrayal. It was a little slow in parts, but overall, I enjoyed it. I liked the narrator less than the story, but she was fine. 3.5 stars

Short but very good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a fantastic fantasy story that captured my interest right away and held it throughout. The narration was well done and brought the story to life in my imagination. All in all, a bit short, but worth listening to.

Great YA Fantasy

I probably should not be writing this review. I am not a YA, rather, I'm an OA (Old Adult). The narrator is a perfect choice for this book. I can recommend this book for it's intended audience. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
