But when his older brother Tom - the current Warden for their region - goes missing, Errol has no choice but to enter the Badlands, where monsters abide in mind-boggling numbers, to find him. During his search, Errol crosses paths with - and finds himself stalked by - the legendary Wendigo, a monster with preternatural strength and speed, as well as enhanced senses of sight, smell and hearing...and an insatiable hunger for human flesh.
Now Errol must do the impossible and not only escape from the monster (something no one has ever done before), but also avoid the unearthly legacy it leaves on all its victims - a terrifying curse known as Wendigo Fever.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This is a short novel that begins the Warden series. A Warden is somebody who takes care of their local town and protects it from creatures, like the titular wendigo. Errol, the apprentice to his brother who is the town Warden, is thrust into the role that he doesn't want after his brother goes missing. Accompanied by a girl from the town, they set off to discover what happened to his brother.
I liked the premise of this book. I love the idea of there being Wardens. And I thought that the interaction between the two main characters was pretty good. But the book itself just didn't grab me.

Found the story fairly typical to start with usual young teen trying to do his best against a better more capable brother in the family business of monster hunting.
Did find it very interesting how the author had a take on this being a future world and how the monsters/demons had been introduced into this world and how humanity now existed.
Once the story pace picked up a bit i soon found it to be an excellent story.
So much so that i went looking for the kindle copy of it.
Usual sterling performance from the narrator which i have found to be a very positive indicator of the authors work.
I received this title free in exchange for an honest review and as such represents my own honest opinion

*I received a copy of this audiobook for an honest review*
This was fun to listen to. The characters were pretty well laid out and understandable, and I felt for them. The flow was good and made for an enjoyable experience. When the action really got going, after the cabin (I'll not say more, spoilers!), I found myself tensing up pausing in whatever chore I was doing at the time to listen more closely.
I loved the different creatures that made appearances, and hope for more!
The only thing that really pulled me out of the tale was the overuse of "moreover". It just seemed to be in there a LOT, but then again, it could have just been me! This will only bother you if you're weird like me, though, hahaha.
I think anyone who enjoys magic and adventure would really like this.

A new fantasy adventure series by a great author
Kevin hardmans kid sensation series ranks as one of my favorites also narrated by mikael naramore. The combination of this dynamic duo deliver a one two Punch of great novel and narration. The well written stories are brought to life by a talented voice artist that will pull you even deeper into the story and the lives of the charismatic characters that were created in this ever expanding world. Welcome to a post apocalypse of magic and evil beings of fae. Mythology and magic brought to life and only a handful of wardens standing between civilization and chaos. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
