The Wizard's Council of Tarador was supposed to tell young Koren Bladewell that he is a wizard. They were supposed to tell everyone that he is not a jinx, that all the bad things that happen around him are because he can't control the power inside him, power he doesn't know about. The people of his village, even his parents, are afraid of him, afraid he is cursed. That he is a dangerous, evil jinx.

Misunderstood teenager gets embroiled in an adventure. The storyline is fine if a bit slow. An easy listen.

Got 19 minutes in and had no idea what was happening or being said. Very disappointing as I normally love full cast productions.
