Publisher's Summary

A vengeful, wild-eyed warrior, he's the most sinister figure in Scottish legend. For three centuries, the Tercentennial Baron has fought his way through famous battles - then vanished without a trace. Now he's reappeared in the quiet town of Bonnybield, where he's about to be discovered by 13-year-old Percival Dunbar....

Armed with a secret stash of books on the supernatural, Percival is the only one to recognize the ghostly signs emerging around his town. When he tries to decipher them, he's terrified to suddenly find himself face to face with the murderous Tercentennial Baron. However, the Baron reveals he's come not to attack Bonnybield, but to save it from an ancient, demonic evil.

Through an epic journey from the battlefields of 17th-century Scotland to the underworld of Victorian London and beyond, Percival races to uncover the truth of the Baron's past - and what it means for his own destiny.

Interesting Setting and Engaging Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I listened to this with my daughter, who is 11, during a long road trip. We were both completely engaged by the story - me especially to the bits of Scottish history, and her to the magical story line. The narrator's voice is perfect and we just loved it, we had not finished the book by the time the trip was over, so we listened to it on the couch for a couple evenings before bed - so fun!

Amazing story and narration!

Tim Gerard Reynolds is my favorite narrator and the story itself is awesome. The characters fit well into the tale and nothing seems forced. I highly recommend.

Nice Find

A very entertaining story... Kinda provincial folklore... It leans toward YA while providing wider appeal... The area’s history and legend is weaved nicely, and gives bit of a homey feel... Loved the settings and imagery... Great characters fully realized, mostly... A lot of this book is deep background flashback material, and it works w/ the story arc, anbd setup of an ongoing series... Excellent twists towards the end, and you’ll love then even if you hadn’t already figured them out beforehand... Narration is largely excellent, but found some of the scottish accents a tad cartoonish... Definitely worth the read, and am personally interested to see where it goes from here...

Not as great as I thought.

I bought this because of TGR. I love his narrating. Which was flawless as usual.

The actually story I found to be...boring. I didn't even finish it. Very few books I don't finish. I'm not even sure what it was that I didn't care for or found missing.

One cannot help but become engrossed in the tale

Percival Dunbar, a thirteen-year-old boy, discovers a book; the one supernatural book written by The Grimm that is banned. In it, he discovers information about The Baron, The Tercentennial Baron in fact. From there his adventures begin. The Baron is a demon-like creature that hails from centuries ago and has fought in many battles – documented battles no less! Then The Baron disappeared completely and became a legend and feared boogie man.

Percival begins to notice supernatural happenings right before finding himself face to face with The Baron. Fearing The Baron has plans to destroy his hometown, Percival sets out to discover the truth about The Baron. Unfortunately, Percival may not like the truth or its consequences!

Will Damron, the author, has created a dark tale of supernatural creatures that lurk in the shadows and darkness of men’s hearts. A thrilling tale that captures the imagination of his listeners keeping them on the edge of their chairs. Unique and fascinating, Damron lulls his audience into an adventure that is action packed and challenges many to look beyond appearances.

Characters are complex, yet solid; the plot is well-developed and engaging. One cannot help but become engrossed in the tale. Damron weaves the story carefully bringing in Scottish legends as well as writing in the Scottish dialect. I am delighted to know that he has a second book in the plans and I look forward to hearing it!

This was my first time hearing a book narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. The Scottish dialect was well done and flowed smoothly as if natural. Reynolds is one narrator I could listen to for hours as his voice was awesome – he spoke the Scottish dialect consistently, unwaveringly and with a confidence that held the listener mesmerized!

This is a book you won’t want to miss if you enjoy the supernatural, demons, a bit of magic and swords!
