Publisher's Summary

For 500 years the Gods have united the Three Lands in harmony.
Now that balance has been shattered, and chaos threatens.
A town burns and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, 17-year-old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back.
If he stops, they die.
For two years he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now there is another searching for him - one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair and he knows the true nature of the curse.
Magic.

Here we join Eric in his quest to free the three kingdoms from Archon's clutches on his journey we see Eric gain allies and enemys . Meet godesses here tales of gods and feel the encroaching blade of an assassin. In all of this Eric is still trying to figure out who and what he is, he leaves his family as he thinks he is cursed but luckily one man stands to help and teach our young hero before he does more harm than good with his gifts...Alastair. Join them on this quest and see the wonder, the Darkness and Light, In a place where good and evil literally do battle .
I requested to review a copy of this audiobook for an honest review from the author and it was not disappointing in the least.The narration by David Stifel is, as you would expect from him, very good. In the book's most exciting scenes towards the end the combination of Aaron's words and this narrator provided top-notch audiobook entertainment.

Worthy of a try.

The story of evil vs good is a lot more complicated than just black and white.
Having great powers to wield is both a blessing and a curse as we find out in this story of our Hero Eric a young boy who finds himself causing almost as much harm as good whilst trying to be a better wielder of magic and a better person in a time when good is nearly ready to fail in its fight against evil forever.

As with many narrators although clear i did find him hard to follow for a time and quite droning at times. Move past this and you may find that the story progression makes this worthwhile. for some this may seem a bit rushed in character development and i do wonder if this works better as a book than audible. Have got the book to try this as i found the story interesting enough to look at following the series.
For some this may work out and others may choose to leave this at Book 1. Others may sit on the fence dependant on credits etc to make this worthwhile for keeping with an audio version.
I was gifted this in exchange for my review and as such is my honest opinion.
