Publisher's Summary

Branded on the slaves in the Northern Reaches beyond Ungstah, the scar marks each one as a Downer. It is who they are. There is no escaping this world. Still, strange things are stirring.

Two foreigners ride through the Northern Reaches on a secret mission. An unknown cloaked figure wanders the streets of the dark city of Ungstah. What they want no one can be sure, but it all centers around a Downer named Crik.
 

Crik, too scared to seek freedom, spends his days working in his master's store, avoiding the spirit-eating Ash Kings while scavenging food for himself and his best friend, Jak. Until he steals from the wrong person. When Jak is sold to satisfy the debt, Crik burns down his master's house and is sentenced to death.
 

To survive, Crik and his friends must leave behind their life of slavery to do what no other Downer has ever done before - escape from the city of Ungstah.

Great Book with Great Narration

This was the perfect listen for a long road trip. The plot was exciting and the characters were engaging. The narration was smooth and really pulled me into the story! I highly recommend it!

Best Narration, Great Story

The book itself is a good read but the woman reading it is what truly makes it worth the purchase. Each character has a distinct and well-done accent, read with an energy that pulls you in and doesn’t let you go until the end. Read the whole thing, start to finish, in one day. One of my favorite narrators I’ve come across, and this is coming from an audio book junkie (I take down at least 3 a month).
