    Story
    "A Comfortable Visit to the Known Territory"

    It is a decent time waster, if you like the genre no harm in surrounding yourself with the known themes and tropes.

    However the tone of the novel is a bit uneven in the sense that horrible things happen but they are told in a mild way.

    The reader is excellent. Actually I think it is better to listen this novel rather than read it.

    I recommend but be aware that it is PG13.

    "A whole new world of adventure"

    Michael Sullivan's artful story telling creates a wonderful world of adventure to escape into. The book is fast paced and leaves you thirsting for more at the end. 10/10 would read/listen to again.

    "Thoroughly Enjoyed!!!"

    Look toward to the rest of the story.

    I enjoyed the story but despise reviews that require minimum number of words.

    "Who wrote this?"

    Story, good. Writing? Atrocious. Starts almost every sentence with a subject word like a 1st grader.

    Story
    "The characters alone merit the five stars."
    Any additional comments?

    This book came as an utter surprise to me. As you read, you can sort of tell that this is a writer who is just starting to come to his own (read his backstory, it's interesting on its own.), but it is so easy to forgive any mistakes that he makes purely because you fall in love with the characters immediately. Royce and Hadrian are the best duo, and the kind of people you want to imagine being friends with in an alternate life. Indeed, by the time you finish this book you can't help but immediately search for the next one, even if it happens to be one in the morning on a weekday.

    "Phenomenal Story and Superb Reading"

    I was captivated throughout the entirety of this book. I first listened to The Age of Myth and was amazed by the story and manner of writing. I decided to start this series and have not been disappointed at all! I highly recommend this book.

    The narrarator did a fantastic job with this book. There were almost no errors and I felt as though I was actually there. The reading did nothing but enhance the book.

    Story
    "Terrible writing"

    This is one of the worst books I have ever read. It's extremely simplistic in a bad way. There are no plot twists, the dialogue isn't witty, and the world building is atrocious. The bad guys are from B movies where they explain the whole plot to the good guys right before they miraculously escape. There is zero chance i finish the series. If you still get this book, do yourself a favor and listen on 2x speed.

    "captivating "

    Great story line. Captivating for someone like me who normally doesn't love fantasy novels. Couldn't stop listening. Also very clean as far language, violence, and sexual content go.
