Publisher's Summary

A hooded man, his face marred by a mysterious black brand, walks the Plain of Savlos. Some say he has the power to summon demons. Others say he is the only one who can vanquish them. His name is Konrad, and he has a secret....

Once an ordinary soldier, his life was forever changed by a fateful meeting with a dying sorcerer. Now he is all that stands between civilization and the creeping evil of the shadow world.

Hungarian or fantasy

The book itself is well written and well narrated. I'm enjoying it. But there is a but...
BUT the really heavy usage of Hungarian words as "fantasy" is very distracting to me as a Hungarian. The fact that the narrator mispronounce every single one of them doesn't help either or maybe he does it on purpose to change them up a little bit.
Using Hungarian names is one thing, like István and Beáta.
But to call the big city "nagyvaros" = nagy város is a different story. Nagy = big, város = city.
Eastern people are living in "Keletiorsag" = Keleti ország = Eastern country.
Nearly everything in the book what is not an English word is in fact the Hungarian word for it. The countryside is called Videki. Yep you've guessed it, vidéki means countryside in Hungarian.
I realize that I'm in the extreme minority with this experience here, but still I felt it is something worth mentioning. It makes it somewhat easier to remember "fantasy" words tho haha.

Fun beginning to fantasy series

A young soldier gets drawn into a supernatural world. It reminds me of the Rothfuss series where he is super-confident of his abilities and tragedy strikes. Narrator does an excellent job, good start.

Good fun fantasy

it was nice to read a fantasy with good characters and tension and stuff but no profanity or sex. The mark of a skilled storyteller.
