In the realm of the five Kingdoms, magic is strictly controlled by a small group of powerful wizards who call themselves the Torr. Throughout the realm, magic lies dormant, sleeping, almost forgotten until Zollin discovers that he is a wizard. While he revels in his new powers and the realization that his life has purpose, malevolent wizards from the Torr, led by the scheming Branock, tirelessly seek him out. When at last they discover Zollin, a confrontation will ensue that will change the five kingdoms forever. Zollin is forced to flee his home and, with a small group of friends, find a way to survive until he can learn to use his powers to protect the people he cares about. Wizard Rising is a coming of age story that dives headfirst into a realm where magic is about to reawaken. So buckle up and hang on; the action comes fast and you won't be able to put it down.

"the potential fell flat"
the story had a strong base and could have been great but between the transparency if the caricatures and the predictable storyline it was pain full to listen to
"At least it had wizards doing magic "
My critique is less about the book itself as it is about how audible doesn't have additional categories for books. this book was fairly decent if one takes into account that it was written more as a young adult novel. these things should be taken into consideration given the string of "...he said" "....she said".
otherwise I enjoyed the book, a coming of age wizard book where the loo author didn't shy away from the defining attribute of the main character being a wizard and he does magic.
