Game of Thrones meets Harry Potter
Bathgate's richly imagined epic fantasy series immerses the listener in a vibrant magical world whose peace has been shattered. The struggles of the people of the Ceniac Island are viewed through deeply dimensioned characters with massive battles and epic wizard duels.
Victory comes from understanding what magic will allow and what it will punish. While the violence plays out, there is a mystery secretly driving the war buried beneath a barren landscape where no creature lives, not even plants or insects. The ancients have buried something which will grant godlike power.
In places, this is an adult dark fantasy or a sexy swords-and-sorcery like Game of Thrones, but the innocence of the protagonist is heartwarming and enriching.

Magical epic with a twist! Hurry with book 2!
First of all let me say Andrew Bathgate did a wonderful job of bringing a magical story that we all feel familiar with and then out of nowhere hit with a twist that you did not she coming at all but you're like hey I love this!
The narrator did a incredible job of bringing the story to life I did not want to quit listening it really made you feel like you were these characters.
Not getting this audiobook, or book in general would just be a loss for anyone who enjoys fun epic, magical, stories.

An epic tale of fantasy, splendour and bloody battles! It’s superbly written with clever plot twists, descriptions so vivid that you could almost be there, events constantly changing and the story repeatedly evolving.
The narrator, Tom Fairfoot, showcases his brilliant versatility. His effortless storytelling really draws the listener in and his performance makes it a truly immersive experience.

Gripping story and “wizard” performance
I am not usually a fan of fantasy and sci-fi but I got completely carried away with this imaginative and gripping audiobook. Just when you think your hero has no chance, he is given the gift of wizardry and somehow, this is told in such a manner as to seem totally believable.
Andrew Bathgate’s numerous richly drawn characters are brought alive by the superb performance of the narrator Tom Fairfoot. Not only has he a flair for the various regional/class accents but he gives each personality his/her own distinctive individuality.
I look forward to the next audiobook in the series.
