Ile-Rien is in peril. A mysterious army known only as the Gardier has surrounded the country, attacking in ominous black airships. Hope is not lost though, for a magical sphere created by Ile-Rien's greatest sorcerer may hold the key to defeating the faceless enemy. But the sphere is unpredictable and has already claimed several lives. When a magical spell goes disastrously awry, young Tremaine Valiarde and a brave band are transported to another world-a world of rough magics, evil mages, honorable warriors, and a secret Gardier base.

Any additional comments?

I love this book and got the audiobook so I could listen to it while cleaning or whatnot. I HATE the narrator. The emphasis is not at the right points in sentences, there are long pauses, and I personally don't like how she pronounces some of the names, although I bet that has more to do with me reading the books first. I couldn't even finish the audiobook. I had to stop after 20 minutes, and I returned the book.

Do yourself a favor and read the book, don't listen to it unless they get a better narrator.
