Publisher's Summary

Often the smallest unexpected surprises garner the most demanding dilemmas, which proves to be the ordeal that entomologist Ben Whytten faces. While netting butterflies to add to his vast collection, he mistakenly sweeps what he thinks is the most spectacular butterfly he has ever seen into his net. Upon examining his catch, Ben is horrified to discover he has captured a faery and shredded her delicate wings into useless ribbons.

Devastated, Ben vows to take Shawndirea back to her realm, Aetheaon; but he discovers that doing so places their lives into immediate danger. To get to Aetheaon, they must pass through a portal rift deep inside the haunted cavern, Devils Den.

Once they cross the rift, Ben enters a world where mysteries, magic, betrayal, and power struggles await. He must adapt quickly or die because Aetheaon is filled with enchanted creatures and numerous races where chaos often dominates order. And since Shawndirea's destined for the throne of Elvendale, opposing dark forces plot to prevent her from ever reaching her kingdom again. The faery's magic isn't enough to fully protect them, so he must trust other adventurers to aid them during their journey.

    "What a horrible narration!"

    The narrator was so slow and the accents were so horrible. I feel like they slowed the track down to half speed in order to make the book appear longer to prospective buyers.

    Story
    "Absolutely horrible narration."

    Darla Middlebrook sounds sick and the voices she does are incredibly similar, perhaps tre variations. Her take on a male voice is just make it as raspy as possible and her accents are annoying and terrible.
    Worst audiobook narration I've listened to.
    The story is interesting enough and would have been entertaining if not for the narration.
