Publisher's Summary

Once there were three worlds, each with their own human species. Then, fleeing out of the void came a fourth species, the Charon. Desperate, on the edge of extinction, they changed the balance between the worlds forever. Karan, a sensitive with a troubled heritage, is forced to steal an ancient relic in repayment of a debt. It turns out to be the Mirror of Aachan, a twisted, deceitful thing that remembers everything it has ever seen. At the same time, Llian, a brilliant chronicler, is expelled from his college for uncovering a perilous mystery. Thrown together by fate, Karan and Llian are hunted across a world at war, for the Mirror contains a secret that offers each species survival, or extinction!

Good book and excellent narration

I read this book about 10 years ago. I also read book 2 and half of book 3. I dercided to start again from the beginning and also decided to go for the audio book. The book itself is very good & I don't read many books, let alone a number of books in a series. The thing that made this audio book even better was the narration. The first thing I always do now when looking for an audio book is to listen to the sample and read reviews of the narration. As far as I am concerned the narration is a very big part of the book. No matter how good the story is, if the narration is monotone and boring you simply woin't finish the book.

So yes you guessed it. As far as I'm concerned the narration in this series is first class. Grant puts on the voices of a wide range of charachters which adds greatly to the reading.

I would highly recommend this book and the narrator.

compelling and fascinating

I liked the cover for this book as it reminded me of something. It turned out that I had read this book about 5 years ago. This was not a disappointment though as the narrator has one of the best voices I have heard in a long time for an audio book. It is also a great story in its self and as always in books it nice to finally know how the names are pronounced I will definitely get the rest in the series on audible even thought I have read them as it is such a compelling book.
