I really enjoyed this book, the length which btw sustained my interest throughout the entire book not only to the end but I was very much craving more, unfortunately this is the only series the author has written, at least on Audible. This book has a great story, interesting and likeable characters and a really great narrator, I highly recommend you give it a listen.

Disappointing at first but...

After listening to the black mage series, I did find this a bit disappointing at first as I bought it thinking it was a continuation of that series which it isn’t. The story is enjoyable enough, it could very much have been its own series revolving around Sage but this book is very much a prequel for the black mage series so I do recommend listening to this book but do so before listening to the accompanying series.

Very engaging.

I really enjoyed this book, good length though the more the merrier to my ears. The characters were all really interesting, the narrator did a fantastic job of creating individuals and the plot was really engaging. I just came on here looking for book two but no, at the time of writing this is a singular novel, also sadly nothing else from this author. Please Nick Martell, write many more similar stories, I will certainly read them. I very much recommend this book and the narrator Joe Jameson too

I don’t understand the good reviews..

I wanted to really enjoy this book, the reviews suggest it’s awesome but for me keeping track of the characters is quite difficult and though I am very many hours into it, I just feel like nothing much is happening, I’m not quite bored but I am very close hence why I am here reading the reviews trying to understand the appeal. I’m hoping for a refund for this one.

Ok, thats a bit of an over-dramatisation but this series was absolutely captivating the whole way through and because of its significant length you can really relax and listen for long periods while going about your day or sitting back and performing a hobby while listening to this story in the background. It is very enjoyable, great characters that were really likeable, even the nasties and the story is really interesting and different. I highly recommend this one so much so I am straight away going to start another of Brent Weeks series of books as I enjoyed this series so much, OH and the narrator is fantastic too, giving all the characters very individual accents and offering the type of enthusiasm required for the tone of the story. btw, I really think this ones well worth the $15 cost unlike the 6.5 hour insults which may be great fun to listen to but at such short stories, I feel like they are splitting what would otherwise be larger books for the added income which granted is often needed but it feels like a kick in the stones for us as readers.

I've listened to a wide range of audio books and this one was one of the most enjoyable of all, great characters, fantastic, captivating story and really great narrators. As a testament to this, I have never been a fan of role playing games, I'm more of a first person shooter gamer but this book has made me a massive fan of RPG, I just wish this game existed as I really want to be part of the game world created by this author. I highly recommend this book but fair warning, its very difficult to stop listening 😊

This book might have potential but its difficult to tell, I can't believe this has many 5 star recommendations. I'm not sure if its the writing or just the narrator but the narration is SHOCKINGLY BAD, I have listened to a huge number of audio books and this is by far the worst narration I have heard, she can't even pause at the correct time in sentences and this is constant. An Absolute return for me.

Great start but...

I found the start of this book quite exciting but I didn't really enjoy the romance aspect and the story for me fell flat, nothing really exciting happened. I don't recommend this one but I think I might try another book by this author.

this is a really enjoyable story that at times is seriously exciting, coupled with a great narrator, I absolutely recommend this audio book.

This was a really enjoyable book but I do kind of wish I had listened to it before the rest of the series which were really great. This book is a prequel and very much does lead into the other 3 books. It’s a great stand alone book but I think it would be even better if you listen to this before moving onto the Summoner books 1-3. Great narrator in all 4 of these books, I just wish there were more of them. 😊
