When the Dark Wizard, Hasbarie, rose to the height of his power, the kingdoms united to defend their lands, sending Calencia into a battle for its very existence, which would later be referred to as the Great War. Five hundred years later, Locmire, the last Master Wizard of Fogarth, sees the events of a foretold prophecy come into place. Hasbarie has returned. Locmire sets out on an epic quest to reunite the kingdoms, in an attempt to drive this evil from their lands once and for all, but the Dark Wizard has other plans. During his search for the descendants of the kings who rose to greatness during the Great War, Locmire is met by resistance at every turn. The Wizard must reunite the kingdoms once again or Calencia will surely fall. Even with the kingdoms unified, there still stands a grim chance that his efforts will be futile because two entirely different endings to the prophecy have been revealed to him and he is uncertain of the path he must follow to reach the desired conclusion.

the book was good, the story was good, the narrator, however, was fantastic! Truly brought this book to life! Every character was defined and acted with great detail and creative imagination! Can't wait for book number 2!
This is a great story of a journey that takes us through wondrous areas of an interesting land. Gregory Peyton takes narrating to whole other level. Each character has a distinctive voice and personality. The characters come to life in such a vibrant way that you almost feel like you are watching a movie; not just listening. Give it a try- you will not regret it.

What other book might you compare Locmire's Quest to and why?
I would feel safe comparing to "Game of Thrones", the characters and locations are rich and imaginative. You are constantly entertained and riveted by the story.

The way the story made me wanting to keep reading to find out what would happen chapter after chapter and the performance Gregory Peyton done on the audio. Mr. Peyton's ability to change the way each character talked made for an entertaining audio book that will entertain many listeners. Hopefully, he will use his talent for the upcoming books. I just could not imagine another person reading these books.

Any additional comments?
As I mentioned above, I read a lot of fantasy books. I've read Steven King, Clive Barker, J. K. Rowling, and more, and I have to say that this novel is just as well wrote as any of their works. It kept me entertained for hours and I can not wait until the other book is ready to read. Mr. Hutchinson is an excellent upcoming writer that I believe will be around for awhile.
