a very intriguing story, short and concise

This is the first book of a new series called "The Sons of Thunder". I will definitely be listening the rest of the series whenever it comes, because I thoroughly enjoyed "The Son of Nepal".
It's an interesting story set in 1460 in Nepal and the Gobi desert. This is a part of the world that I really know nothing about but the narrator made it seem very familiar. The plot is simple enough with Johannan going on a quest to find a cure for his fiancé’s blindness. This, however, is not the best thing about this audiobook. What really stood out, was the author's amazing use of descriptive words and phrases, which led to the conjuring of very vivid and marvelous mental imagery. The ride this book takes your imagination on is, to me, the best part about listening this book.
Johannan is a character that you want to root for as he searches for the Great Spirit.

This was a wonderful book to listen and would appeal most to teens and young adults.
