Publisher's Summary

David B. Coe, winner of the William L. Crawford Award for Best First Fantasy Series for the LonTobyn Chronicle, continues his rise to the top rank of fantasy writers with Rules of Ascension, the first novel of an exciting new epic fantasy quartet, Winds of the Forelands.
For centuries the Forelands were disputed by several tribes. Then came the magically gifted Qirsi - physically no match for their foes, but capable of mindsight, creating and controlling mists and fire, and bending solid matter to their purpose. After a Qirsi traitor betrayed his race to save himself, the Qirsi were defeated and dispersed among the seven realms of the Forelands. Those specially endowed Qirsi capable of multiple powers, the Weavers, were all put to death.
For centuries the Forelands enjoyed relative peace. But when Tavis, the heir to the Kingdom of Curgh, is wrongfully blamed for the murder of a noble, the accusation sets in motion a series of events culminating in civil war. The ensuing chaos topples the throne in Eibithar and threatens to rain chaos on all the realms of the Forelands. Tavis, thrust into the center of deadly controversy and stripped of the protection of his family's nobility, turns to the Qirsi, his last remaining hope for redemption.
But another Qirsi traitor, secretly fomenting fear and mistrust among the Dukedoms, seeks to destroy Tavis. Tavis must survive long enough to clear his name and save an entire kingdom.
A powerful, compelling tale set in an unforgettable land, Rules of Ascension will capture your heart and fire your imagination.

Dreadful Narrator!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Rules of Ascension to be better than the print version?

No most definitely not. I have read the printed version several times over the years, and hoped that the audio version would be as good. As with so many of my favorite books, this one has been ruined by a terrible narrator

Who was your favorite character and why?

Grinsa. Though I couldn't stand to listen long enough for him to enter the story, I remember him from the printed version.

How could the performance have been better?

Have someone else narrate the book. Alpha Trivette was absolutely awful.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In the printed version again, yes there were several

Any additional comments?

I seem doom to have many of my favorite books available in audio book format, only to have them narrated by people who should not be allowed near a book. This is yet another favorite, ruined by a dreadful narrator. Guess I'll just have to go back to the printed version. :-(( :-((
