Publisher's Summary

In a gritty world of lies and treachery, the standard fantasy hero just won't do.

Taro lost his right leg years ago, but with a family to support, he doesn't let it slow him down. For years he's worked for a notorious crime lord named Victor Mathan. Mathan deals in stolen magical artifacts and trusts Taro to finish his work with as few questions as possible.

When an absurdly well-paying job comes up, Taro is quick to volunteer. Mathan wants him to break a powerful sorceress out of jail, but her prison is under the control of an ancient military order called the Magisterium. To get to her, Taro must pose as a Magisterium recruit. The courses are grueling, the trials drive students mad, and the magic they teach can be as deadly to the caster as it is to the target.

    this book has everything you can hope for from a classic fantasy book. a well paced gripping story, A variation of characters, cool magic system with slight steampunk elements to it.
    even though I never heard about the narrator he did a splendid job

    "Fun Story, Amazing Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The Reach Between Worlds the most enjoyable?

    The narration was fantastic. With so many characters and voices and accents in the book Pirhalla performed it incredibly well. Real joy to listen to this book. Most importantly Reach was a very good first book by Hayden. Not your normal book of magic. It's full of twists and turns and surprises that are weaved into the story quite well. Hayden gets a crucial element that many writers don't get...make your reader root for and care for your characters. He has accomplished this. Even smaller characters are fleshed out well and it really adds to the entire world created in Reach. This is one you'll want to listen to as opposed to reading. Can't wait to hear book 2.

    Story
    "New Fantasy"
    What did you love best about The Reach Between Worlds?

    Very original story and setting, not your typical fantasy world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Reach Between Worlds?

    Vexis, the main villain. She's a lot of fun. Kind of a mad genius type Joker.


    Which character – as performed by John Pirhalla – was your favorite?

    Probably Suri.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, took a few, but it's short.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book.

    "Good start but quite flawed"

    I've certainly read/listened to worse offerings, and there are world building elements with strength here, but a Mary Sue that would make Kvothe blush, eye rolling dialogue, and then author's lack of reverence for his most important scenes make me unlikely to continue the series.
