A phenomenal story narrated by one of the best narrators there is! <br/><br/>Raymond is this 13 or 14 year old kid suddenly thrust into a world of adventure and non-stop action. He continually thought of himself as a coward but I think many would feel that way if put in his position. <br/><br/>My favorite character was Isiro <---- might be spelled wrong. But he was a true warrior in this and I only wish he'd been in the story more.<br/><br/>I was a bit disappointed in Raymond by the end of the story because he never made a conscious decision to do anything that was brave, or that would help someone. What looked like brave actions to others were accidentally done. So, I felt as though he didn't actually grow into the role of a warrior. But what a fun, death defying adventure he went on. I loved all the creatures and somewhat mystical people he came across. <br/><br/>This is definitely a very well creatively written adventure!<br/><br/>My main issue with this audio book was editing. This audio book was obviously not edited.<br/>And it's noticeable around chapter 24 or 25 and chapter 39. But it just shows how professional and amazing Chris Patton is as a narrator because even with a small distraction, he's able to bring you right back into the story. <br/><br/>The other issue I had with this story were the quotes at the beginning of every chapter. I absolutely hate when music is played, quotes are mention, or the title along with the chapter is done for every chapter. It's such a huge distraction especially when I'm engrossed into a story. <br/><br/>So, other than that, like I said before this is definitely a very well, creatively written adventure!
