Publisher's Summary

For 500 years, the Gods have united the Three Nations in harmony. Now, that balance has been shattered, and chaos threatens.

A town burns, and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, 17-year-old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back. If he stops, they die.

For two years, he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now, there is another searching for him - one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair, and he knows the true nature of the curse. Magic.

An epic read!

Such a fantastic, epic read that is full of dragons, magic, wizards, adventure, action and a hint of romance.

Great world building. Wonderful characters. Twists and turns. Suspense. Tension. All of these make an excellent series and a much more pleasurable read.

The narrator has an amazing voice. Very enjoyable.

Perfect for readers of fantasy books.

Epic fantasy, dragons, magic, adventure...

The Sword of Light: The Complete Trilogy
By: Aaron Hodges
Narrated by: David Stifel
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This book has all the fantasy I like, dragons, wizards, adventure, touch of romance, good vs evil, gods, supernatural gifts, and more. Book one was a book was a young boy with a gift and it and him coming of age. Learning to control it was a no go without the wizard that finds him. It was a constant adventure, one thing after another, never boring. At the same time, another boy is after the kid for burning down the town and killing his family. The two groups come together at the end and a lot of things have changed by then. The next book continues with the girl with the dragon, the one that everyone has the hopes of the world on. Eric, the boy with the power, is mastering his power. There is also a big surprise noted in this book! They still are fighting demons, helped by gods, and it is still wonderful! The last book, sob, raps up the trilogy well and maybe someday the author will come back and give us more from this world. I liked the world building, the well developed characters, the twists (esp in the last book) and the fun fantasy.
The narrator made the book flow extraordinary! He performed the voices faultlessly. He made the suspense, tension, fighting, and romance seem so real. I felt like I was watching a movie! Great job!

This should be YA

This story hits all the tropes. Spoiler alert: Magic is magic, you get the history of magic in the first few chapters, along with the troubled user who quickly masters his power thanks the ubiquitous avuncular mentor that quickly befriends the troubled youth. Basically this is Star Wars. And a painful listen.
