I have to start this review by staying that this book was entertaining enough and considering getting the next installment (finish it and you'll understand). BUT... this is not a great fantasy book. The characters are overly black and white, it is fairly predictable and the plot relies on a lot of coincidences and is driven by cliché characters. If this would bother you, don't bother; if it is less of an issue and you just want some light entertainment, give it a go! Maybe I am just being a little cynical!
The narrator had a nice and easy to listen to voice, but very annoyingly, there is a significant pause between each of the (fairly short) chapters! I kept thinking my headphones were cutting out - have given the narration 3 starts but feel bad, as this probably wasn't the narrator's fault.

This is a great start to what is going to be a fantastic series. There are parts of this book that remind me of Harry Potter, David A Wells and Robert Jordan / Brandon Sanderson if you like any of these then you are going to love this. The narrator isn't someone I have Hurd before but never the less does a good job. I have already got book 2.

The narration is flawless and the book has a very compelling storyline. It is one of the better audiobooks I have listened to. However I feel some characters are somewhat two dimensional...
Overall a must have book.
A very good start to a promising series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy and new and innovative magic systems! Great performance by the Narrator aswell!
