Publisher's Summary

Rune Scale is set in a world ruled by dragons. Humans survive by their wits and through the use of alchemy, a mysterious magic possessively controlled by the secretive Alchemists Guild. Andrew Condign is an ordinary man with dreams of a better world, where humans can live without the constant fear of dragon attacks. In pursuit of this goal, Andrew finds himself in a race against time as he scrounges for scraps of knowledge and sets out on the most dangerous quest imaginable.

Likeable story and characters

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
Devin Hanson writes a very likeable story. I enjoyed the way he brings out the main character Andrew as he starts a quest that defines him as a person. The narrator, Rhett Samuel Price does an excellent job in telling the story and I like the way he uses his voice with each character. Very well done all around

Excellent Fantasy! Can't wait for the next one!

Rune Scale did not disappoint! i had read the reviews of those who had read the books prior to it being put on Audible and was excited to listen to it hoping it would be a book to share with my kids. Although there were a few minor cuss words it, it wasn't used a lot and so it was tolerable - I would place it in the middle school age range for appropriateness. This book has a unique and fun plot and I found myself having a hard time putting it down. Mr. Price does a wonderful job with the narration, he has a deep rich tone that aids to the character of the book. I'm hoping they get the others in the series out on Audible soon!

Captivating

This start to a new series is great. It took a little bit to get familiar with the characters and new world, but after that I was listening to every word. Andrew's journey to adulthood made him a great hero. Both he and Jules stay strong, no whining. Love it.
Ava, wow..did not see that coming. Love her and can not wait to see how that develops.

The narrator is so important to the author, and Mr. Price is priceless. His clear and rich tones, not only identify each character but make it a pleasure to listen to.

This is my opinion only & should be considered with others as a whole.This audio was given to me free at my request & I made this review voluntarily. Thank you for the opportunity.

Absurd but developed and fun.

Excellent narration of a well built world. Its a quick listen and will leave you wanting a bit more. Kind of a steam punk world with dragons and alchemy. I rather enjoyed it

Excellent Fantasy!

Excellent Fantasy set in a world of magic and dragons. Humans survive by using alchemy to protect themselves from dragons. Andrew Condign is just a merchants son. He becomes a gunny on an airship to help protect the people from the dragons. After the airship is destroyed by a dragon, Andrew flees the city and sets off on a very dangerous journey to a new city where he hopes to learn alchemy to help protect against the dragons. His journey takes him dangerously close to dragons and he discovers something about himself he never knew, a special ability. Excellent narration by Rhett Samuel Price! He has the perfect voice for this story! The first few chapters of this story started a little slow but quickly escalated after that. Devin Hanson did a great job with the story and building this fantasy world of dragons and magic. I can't wait to enjoy the rest of this series and I hope the author continues to use the same narrator!

So much better than I expected!

Honestly, I didn't expect much from the book. That just made the awesomeness of it hit so much harder. This book was right up my alley. Relatively useless and underdog main character finds a craft/magic and excels at it beyond anyone's wildest expectations. Seeing the character grow and advance in his skill is very entertaining. The narration is top notch, giving the characters life and helping the story move smoothly forward.

Dragons, magic, alchemy, and the comming of age

I received an copy of this book for evaluation from audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. The narrator, does an excellent job in telling the story and brings each of the players to life. The story line is well developed and interesting but it was a bit linear and I would place this as a youth fantastic. The author does an amazing job with attention to details is such a way as to have you feeling what the player is feeling. After I was done listening to the book I put it down for a few weeks and went back to listen to it again, like I do with most books. However, this is more of a once-through and done than a book worth the re-read.

Show start, but very good listen

To be honest, I almost gave up after the first chapter. Mr. Price's luxurious voice takes some getting used to, but stick with it, the overall book is very good and Mr. Price does a fine job voicing it.

I found the characters to be well developed and the story line intriguing. The last hour of the audio, however, is setup for the next book. Which I'm okay with, but a full hour seems bit much.

I will listen to the next book when it become available.

Loved This

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. When I started listening to this book I was not impressed but as I got more into it the book I was surprised. The story got more and more interesting. I loved the end. The narrator did the voices well and I could tell the difference between the male and female voices as well as the voice of the dragon. Very well done.

Dragons, airships and magic.

In a world where dragons rule the sky's and humans have to hide underground, behind thick walls or camouflage we are treated to an interesting and well written story.

The plot moves at a good pace keeping you listening to find out what happens next.

The whole book being from one veiw point character helps keep the reader invested in their stroy and makes their struggles seem more relatable.

The world seems well crafted and as if it has a lot more to it than we get to see.

The characters are well written and have a lot of depth to them.

The narration is top notch, is easy to listen to. In both slow moments and active combat the narration fits perfectly.

Each character has their own unique voice that really helps their mood and personality shine though.

There was no recording errors that I noticed.

This was a great listen and I can highly recommend this book.

I am looking forward to seeing what happens next in this interesting world.
