Very promising with potential
Overall the story is good considering it is the first of the series. I believe there is a lot of potential for this to become a great series.
The narrator was great. My only complaint is that it was awkward to listen to some of the female voiceovers and difficult to take some of the characters seriously with the voice used for them. Overall, however, the narrator did a great narration
The story and characters are ngaging and unique and the book keeps your attention from beginning to end. Two things about the story that I did not like was that plot twists and learning about certain characters and their secrets seemed a little rushed. An example of this is when a character reveals a secret during combat and the only response from the revelation was a few words acknowledging it. I felt the rushed reaction and revelation took away from the character and who they are.
Secondly, the story and characters display some cliche lines and characteristics. While having cliche themes or lines is nit inherently bad and I do not view cliche as always bad, some cliche lines seem to take away from the characters vibrant and unique personalities and senses of humor that are portrayed very vibrantly and well in other scenes.
In the end, this book was a pleasure to read despite a few little things I personally think took away from making the story more or less perfect. I would highly recommend this book to any fans of fantasy and coming of age stories.

i am not a fan of books that do not have a complete story arc. Apparently the crisis of this book is getting the armor off. That was not a good enough climax to make wading through all the blood and gore worth the trip.
