Summary

In a world of darkness, only the Landkist can stand against the power of the Sages.
For hundreds of years, the flame-wielding Embers have been the last line of defense against the nightmare creatures from the World Apart, but the attacks are getting worse. Kole Reyna guards Last Lake from the terrors of the night, but he fears for his people's future.
When Kole is wounded by a demon unlike any they have seen before, the Emberfolk believe it is a sign of an ancient enemy returned, a powerful Sage known as the Eastern Dark.
Kole has never trusted in prophecy, but with his people hanging on the precipice, he reluctantly agrees to lead the Valley's greatest warriors in a last desperate bid for survival. Together, they will risk everything in search of a former ally long-thought dead, and whether Kole trusts him or not, he may be the only one capable of saving them.
The Landkist Saga is the epic new fantasy series readers are comparing to Hayao Miyazaki and Steven Erikson. Valley of Embers is the first of five planned volumes.

Think superheroes in a medieval setting

What made the experience of listening to Valley of Embers the most enjoyable?

Strong world building, combat scenes, adventure, magic and characters. Incredibly visual, but with enough 'down moments' during the adventure to make those fast, action-packed moments pop.

What other book might you compare Valley of Embers to, and why?

Always find this hard. Not sure. Epic fantasy in the truest sense.

What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

Accents on some of the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The way the community feels real and comes together.

Any additional comments?

If you love the thought of magic wielding warriors, who harness elemental energies and wield them through their weapons, you'll love this.

A slow burn

Unfortunately, the narrator had little excitement or energy in the telling of the story. He simply droned on from sentence to sentence. However he did speak clearly and loud enough that I gave him the 3 star.

The story took a very long time to get into. The problem was that the beginning was extremely slow and filled with meandering. It took around four hours to really get the story properly going. After that, it was still slow going but at least it was going somewhere.

Very good story and magic system.

Very good story and magic system. Not quite top tier but the next one in the series might be.
