Publisher's Summary

Craving a complex, daring high fantasy? The Age of Magic series is reminiscent of the emotional roller coaster and grit of Game of Thrones with the wonder and danger of the Upside-Down from Stranger Things! 

Amidst the darkest days of antiquity, mankind discovers a new kind of hero. 

For thousands of years, mankind warred without magic. Peculiar abilities were buried in history along with the storied paladins and the mysterious dark elves who rarely ventured into human towns. 

That all changes at the end of the Tranquility Era, when a young man named Ashton accidentally raises his murdered best friend Clayton from the grave. Because of his mistake, Ashton becomes the focus of manhunts, armies, and the King’s judgement, but Ashton is not the biggest problem in the Kingdom of Surdel. 

The golden age of man is coming to a close and enemies surround the civilized world. Lulled into a false sense of security by isolation and pervasive peace, human lords hatch petty schemes to weaken their rivals and gain favor with the throne. Meanwhile, an ancient darkness stirs beneath the Great Northern Mountains and the orcish hordes grow restless just beyond the Southern Peaks. Out of the chaos at the end of the Tranquility Era, a new breed of hero arrives to forge an age of sorcery and mayhem. And into this chaos comes the Necromancer!

Good story with complex plot

This book involves a young man who discovers he is a necromancer by accident as he is grieving for his lost life long friend. The story then involves his adventures as he at first tries to flee and then take revenge for what others have done to his people. The plot involves politics within a human kingdom and the war among elves and orks and demons. It also involves him beginning to learn about the history of his world and the magic that has shaped it.

He makes many mistakes during his journey and moves toward his destiny.

This is a good book and well written with a complex world of magic and beings. The narration is very good and enjoyable.

Amazing, Can't Wait for the Next One!

Wow!!! This book was an amazing experience and I'm so glad I got to listen to it. Rex Jameson is now my new favorite author for fantasy epics, and his writing style details the environment and the characters so vividly. The story was also so engaging, and although it was familiar in parts, the friendship of the two main characters was something special that I hope continues in the series.

I'm looking up Mr. Jameson's remaining works as I type this and will have a hard time waiting until the next chapter of this series is converted into an audiobook...

It also helps that Adam Gold does such a wonderful job with his narration. I've never heard of anything that Mr. Gold has voiced, but I'm going to eagerly seek out his works from now on.

If you're a fan of LotR, WoW, GoT, or anything else nerdy or fantasy based, you'll love this book! Worth every digital bit of your credit!!!

Outstanding!!

Intense, complex characters, betrayal, it has it all. A young necromancer, an undead friend, a paladin, an elf prince all are memorable. The narrator was a perfect choice. He did an excellent job.
