Publisher's Summary

Secrets revealed. Powers unleashed. A legend in the making....

It is said that Paxon Leah is descended from the royals and warriors who once waged war with magical weapons. But those heroes are long gone now, and there is nothing enchanted about the antique sword that hangs above Paxon's fireplace. Little does Paxon know though, that extraordinary circumstances are about to overturn his simple world...and rewrite his destiny.

From the international best-selling author Terry Brooks comes a thrilling new adventure - and an unforgettable new hero.

The narrator did a really good job

The going back to the same place x3 to find the same bad guy in the same place got a little old. I enjoyed it but at the same time, I did get bored. It didn’t suck me in as much as his original series did. It was a nice touch the Author relaying information from past events (books). Though at the same time it did make me go what? I don’t remember that happening. I need to re-read the other series.

The narrator did a really good job with some of the accents. I felt like I was listening to a video game sometimes, the voice acting was on point.
