Publisher's Summary

Damien St. Cloud is a failure. Born with the most powerful soul force anyone has ever seen, he can't get it to work. The next in a long line of warlords, Damien is a disappointment to his legendary father and a weakling compared to his perfect sister.

Everything changes when a visiting sorcerer proclaims Damien isn't a warlord at all but a sorcerer! Damien is thrust into a world of magic and intrigue, war and death. Behind the scenes a dark and ancient evil is rising once more, intent on destroying everything Damien cares about.

Can Damien, along with his sister and allies, expose this evil and save the kingdom?

The Darkness is rising. Who will survive?

    "Fun read"

    This could have been a great book. If it has more world building and a fleshed out magic system. It was super fun and i will get the next one, but it could have been so much more. i really wish the protagonist had a few flaws. He felt fake like 1950 super man. We need him to lust and make mistakes. He just seems to perfect at everything he does.

    "Im To old for this book."

    A book for young adult. Standard warrior with magic book
    A teenager, thats the best in everything. Teacher has a crush on him, girls can't get enough of him.
    Very litle background story

    A book for the age group around 13.
    A simple straight forward story, im sure some people will enjoy it.
    Not a heavy read.

    "Good Story, distracting narration"

    The story has the elements of a 4 star rating but for the halting and non-fluid narration. The whole concept of inward and outward focused magic to determine a person's affinity toward being a warlord or sorcerer was different and used to good effect in providing an understandable context to Damien's personality.

    The whole sub-thread with him having a fetish-like relationship with his father's incubus-like demon sword, to an extent of shunning real female relationships, was a bit, um, freaky but, hey, who am I to be judgemental?!

    I am a bit conflicted as to whether of not to follow this series due to the off-putting narration so I will put it in my 2nd tier follow-up list for now.
