Publisher's Summary

The world's end was his beginning.  

Whole chunks of earth are withering away from the mainland and falling into the sea. Natural disasters are claiming thousands of lives. Prayers are no longer answered by gods. Prayers are answered by machines and the Time Fathers of Panagea.  

Nicholai Addihein, one of the eight ruling Time Fathers, struggles to save the lives of his people. After a single moment of misunderstood treason, he must also save his own.  

While running from the wrath of Panagea's other Time Fathers, Nicholai lands in peculiar company. Can a fabled immortal, a crew of societal rejects, and a silver-haired woman with a mysterious past breathe life back into a world on the brink of death?  

With all of existence at stake, Nicholai and the others prepare to fight until their last breath to change the fate of Panagea. Who would ever guess that success might be just as fatal as failure?

By far my new favorite fantasy series!

The Tree That Grew Through Iron is an amazing fantasy tale centered around a handful of heroes trying to save Pangea. A world filled with Time Fathers , Earth Mothers and lots more types of magic involved. A man trying to save hos daughter by stopping time even though he isnt supposed to is what sets this epic adventure in motion. I loved this book and I can't wait to get a hold of the second book! So beautifully written that it will keep anyone intrigued.

I was given this audiobook review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Amazing!

What an epic book! The actions of one heartbroken man trying to save his dying daughter triggers events that literally change the course of humanity and time. The Tree That Grew Through Iron is one of my favorite books I've ever read! The author does a spectacular job laying out the world of Panagea and elaborating enough so that the reader truly feels like witnessing the events in the story. I hope that this one becomes a movie or series of movies!

The narration is also amazing. The narrator puts a lot of effort into creating emotion and giving characters their own voice (some sounded similar, but with a story this epic it would be impossible for one man to voice the entire cast and not sound similar).

I received this audiobook from the author/publisher/narrator in exchange for an honest review. Thanks so much, Ms. Austin!!!

I absolutely loved it! This book caught my attention from the very beginning and held throughout the entire story. It was such a great fantasy world that you could envision. The narration is superb and gives the story that extra flair! It will keep you entertained. The author does an excellent job with the character builds and plot. I look forward to reading more books in this series! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

my favorite book!

the narrator did a great job, I've read the book before and the audio book was great to "re-live" the experience again. I really look forward to them doing the 2nd one as audio book too. I'm only sad I'm through it already. I crave more! guess I just need to pick up book 3 and finish it.

A unique and intriguing world

I requested a copy of this book to review because of the world hinted at in the summary. This is not a traditional fantasy world, it is a distopian capitalistic technocracy led by the time fathers, and that is not an honorary title, without them time physically stops.

Nature has had to make way for industry and the continent suffers for it, with people having to take injections to protect themselves from pollution and oxygen deprivation. Magic and gods still exist in this world, although there is little room for them on the continent.

The book is well narrated and my only criticism would be that the source of the time fathers power is never really explained (in this book) leaving you wondering why people who purport to shun magic aparently use it habitually to keep time running.
