Exiled by his power-hungry brothers, Prince Tarkyn encounters the woodfolk: a secretive group of telepaths living deep in the woodlands.

When bounty hunters attack, Tarquin narrowly escapes with the aid of the forest-dwellers and discovers a secret about their source of magic. 

Embracing his new identity, allegiances are formed as the woodfolk hail Tarquin as the guardian of the forest.

But can he find a way to protect this mysterious realm and seize his true destiny?

If "the audacity!" was a book.

I couldn't do it. I made it around 10 hours and I thought.... AGAIN!? This book is 10% plot, and 90% let's see what insignificant thing the price will have to get over next.
I did enjoy the intricacies of dealing with a cultural transition, but I just couldn't. I knew it was going to go on for another 10 hours and I gave up.
So if you like that kind of discussion and watching a character slowly get over himself, listen to this book.

What a waste

I went past struggling to finish it, straight to struggling not to demand a refund.
This was EXTREMELY BORING with a capital B.
So dry and full of emotional nonsense with out any true story progression.
Sadly I know people will still buy this book thinking I'm hating or misunderstanding greatness and waste a good credit or money on this travesty.
I at least warned u lol.

Great series!

Excellent series with some very unique ideas (rare for sci fi these days!). I can't wait to listen to the others.
This narrator is my absolute favourite and I'll listen to anything by him! His ability to do different voices is astounding (even women, which is hard for most men!). The characters in this book particularly show up his talent. Truly awestruck by his performance every time!

Long, a little tedious, but surprisingly enjoyable

I enjoyed this book. I thought I would say this first in case my comments below put people off!
It had an interesting and exciting start but then plateaued and became quite tedious to listen to, however I decided to 'press on' for a bit longer instead of returning it and found myself quite enjoying it enough to go on to Book 2.
I wasn't at all surprised to learn that the author is a psychologist, as the regular delving into and explaining of, the feelings of her main character gave her away!
The narrator's voice was rich and his use of accents interesting, so it came as a total surprise to hear the mispronunciation of the word 'grimace' as 'grim-ACED'. The first time, it jarred me out of listening and I rewound to listen again....I didn't quite catch what on earth he was saying. It became a source of irritation and unfortunately highlighted how frequently the word was used.
I do hope Ms Ealey develops her use of synonyms rather than overusing certain words repeatedly, but I am still in awe of anyone who can write such a long and epic novel irrespective of those, hopefully, constructive comments.

i just couldnt finnish

info dumps, lazy tropes and poor pace make this a dull and boring book. please dont bother, the main chrt is so conflicted, depressed / emo. he is also just but tyranical fair but harsh. he is a teenager as a main plot point and has all the anoying foibles . to sum up. prince is cast as a savior and has to stalin his way into the comunist tree folk. just a poor story

Rather average for me.

Honestly I've read a few epic fantasy novels from women and so far I've only really loved one series. This one had the same flaw for me in that it was very dull for a lot of it. The main character is supposed to be the Guardian of the Forest, a character that comes around every few hundred years to protect the forest and it's inhabitants whenever a large danger threatens them. After a whole book we still don't get any real idea of what that danger is, and what little there is in the book was hardly world ending.

What really annoyed me though was the main character. To be frank I felt his actions and responses felt more like I'd expect a woman to react than a man. I also got very bored of his hissy fits and expecting everyone to give him respect, trust and loyalty after knowing him a few days, when they have very good cause to feel the opposite.

The story is okay I guess if it turns out this book is just setting the next books in the series, but it could have used more action at times to help break up all the blah, blah, blah conversation, whining and self pity. In short I found it readable, but average on the whole.
