Summary

Under a previous sun, Athas teemed with life. The sorcerer-king, after obtaining immortality for himself, united all lands under the power of his magic. But power-hungry overlords have carved the lands into pieces - setting themselves up as sorcerer-kings--and survival depends on the optimism of three steadfast people.

Did not finish the book

The best part of this audio book is the narration, Ray Porter is excellent as usual and this is mainly why i listened as long as i did.

I felt the story had some good ideas but but they were poorly filled out, almost like the writer had played a few D&D roll playing sessions then written a book about it.

The magic was glossed over, it's not what i would expect in a modern fantasy. I don't expect wave hands, point finger , say the magic word, zap!. That is rather old hat.

For me the story lacks depth, it try's to do too many things, bring people together to become a team, go on a quest, loose members, defeat an evil sorcerer king, meet strange monsters, kill them, fail, succeed after undergoing a hard test, and so on.

I was disappointed as i had read some very good reviews and heard good things about this.

Accio Stormbringer!

Espetacular character voices

The Darksun world is incredible, and this story is particularly interesting. Added to this, the rendition of the characters by Ray Porter is really powerful and capturing. A recommended "read", for sure. Going to get the next one ASAP.
