Publisher's Summary

The Councilate controls everything except the truth. With it, he shall destroy an empire. 

Tai Kulga lost the rebellion and his best friend on the same day, stripping him of everything even as a strange power flooded his bones. When the friend returns as a spirit guide, it feels like a second chance - but his friend is not who he was, and the Councilate is not done oppressing his people. Trouble with lawkeepers lands Tai’s surviving friends in a prison camp, and he goes underground seeking the last of the rebels to convince them to break his friends free. 

Along the way he meets Ellumia Aygla, runaway Councilate daughter posing as an accountant to escape her family and the avarice of the capital. Curious about the link between spirit guides and magic, her insights earn her a place among the rebels and along with Tai’s new power help turn the tide against the colonialists. 

But as the rebels begin to repeat the Councilate’s mistakes, Tai and Ellumia must confront their own pasts and prejudices, before the brewing war turns them into the monsters they fight. 

Experience the start of an epic-fantasy series filled with unexpected heroes, dark magic, intrigue, and nonstop adventure. Suitable for all ages, it's perfect for fans of D.K. Holmberg, Will Wight, and C.J. Aaron.

Enjoyed it.

The only thing I found a little annoying was that I felt the narrator was just a little over dramatic while narrating, however this is just my personal view, besides from that I found the narrator doing an overall good job narrating. I found the book well written and I’m curious how the story plays out.

Slow start strong finish

The narrator performance would have been a 5* except I believe there was technical issues at the beginning on the recording that did not sit well and caused me to stop and start the story multiple times.

As for the story, this reminds me of Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. The overall feeling and flow of the story feels the same but unique in it's own style. Consumption of object for power, the upbringing of main characters and overall story just kept having me go back to Mistborn so while it was unique in the situation I couldn't say it stuck out as an individual story overall.

I hope in the future books the ability system goes into more detail as it seemed to be missing some keep elements that would likely help in an extended story arc.

The 2nd half of the book is to me, what sells the book. If you pick it up, don't put it on your DNF list and if you have to push through the first half where the tempo and adrenaline speed up. This is where it becomes it's own story and generates the memorable scenes.

Kept getting better and better

This has been my favorite book of the year so far. It has been fun and kept getting better and deeper. Really cool power system that reminded me a bit of mystborn series.
