Publisher's Summary

Destiny will not be denied.

Joining the King's Guard is something every kid growing up in the Midlands dreams about. Onin never dared imagine such a life for himself, even after distinguishing himself in battle. When offered a rare opportunity to train within the Heights, he must balance honor, duty, and family. Haunted by persistent dreams and lured by the possibility of becoming a member of the guard, Onin leaves his home and the last vestiges of childhood behind.

Follow the story of one of the most beloved characters from the World of Godsland fantasy series in the first installment of the Protector trilogy.

The story writing is excellent!

You can tell that the author has fighting experience with the description of battles. The world is expertly crafted. I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter!

Classic heroic fantasy .

Read the book about a year ago and noticed recently this was available on audio, as someone who drives for a living I find a decent story is great for helping the miles go by. I have to say I am loving this again, the story itself appeals to me, it is a nice mix of fantasy containing dragons, fighting and politics within a great story and we'll wrote.
The narrator is perfect, he has that deep gruff voice that just captures the characters and general story perfectly.
Personally I would highly recommend Onin to anyone who likes their heroic fantasy. As a long time fan of authors like David Eddings, David Gemmell and Raymond Feist I can't help but see Jack McCarthy joining the list of great fantasy authors in the future.
