Charming magical adventure,
This is a good book to listen to, fun and enjoyable even with a serious story and the world. The main character is very likeable and I love their interactions with the other character s especially their mentor.All of the dialogue is good, the pacing of the story keeps things moving and interesting thought out. I love all the little references and saying that the main character does not get but us the readers will and impressively given the characters involved it is not fourth wall breaking. The world craft, all the different types of magic, powers and creatures all point to a well thought out world that I would love to know more about.
J. Scott Bennett narration is clear, easy to listen to and makes the story interesting and really pulls you into the world and the story. When it comes to voicing the characters they do an excellent job giving each a unique voice and combating their emotions well. The Voice of the main character is perfect. I would happily listen to more books narrated by them.
Rain Oxford has clearly put a lot of work into every aspect of this, the story, the world, the characters and it shows dividend in this very enjoyable story. This is a great story in an interesting setting with great characters. I very much enjoyed my time with this story and would recommend it anyone that likes stories of magical worlds and adventure.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Any additional comments?
The story continues with the 4th audiobook. The relationships and character development deepen in new adventures, with a nice twist at the end. I totally enjoyed this series

I found this series has been sort of ageless in its target audience. It's written for anyone. The language is squeaky-clean and I didn't find it lacking in story or action in any way. We have character development and depth, relationships and dialogue, some drama, some crises, and some great lessons to enjoy here. Friendship, sacrifice, trust, teamwork, and I'm sure I can justify hard work as a lesson here too.
No matter how you feel about that, there is always humor to be found here. "Why are you Snoggin the Captain?" was, I thought, a fine example of this. There is a lot to enjoy in this whole series, as in this individual story. I would certainly suggest listening in order for clarity, but this story did well enough on its own, too.
Ayden is a pretty wonderful protagonist and character to follow. I recommend this series! I think that, due to how the plot mostly shies away from some more "adult" topics, I would note that YA is probably the best audience here. I, however, am not "YA" and loved this book plenty :)
