Publisher's Summary

"You will be the father of kings...."

A prophecy to a 16-year-old blacksmith’s son sends Trygare kan Ingan from his home in the Cymenean glyns, armed only with his father’s sword. 

Being Godchosen isn’t easy. The woman he wants doesn’t want him, the man who should be his best friend thinks him laughable, and everyone ridicules his youth, to say nothing of his glyndweller accent.

Slaying a dragon and defending the country from invaders changes their minds, and things are going nicely, but then the gods interfere...

Tragedy strikes, sending Trygare to a foreign land where his true destiny lies...to become the ancestor of a dynasty that will rule his planet for three thousand years. 

Combine Conan the Barbarian with Skyrim, add a dash of Game of Thrones, and the result will be this epic chronicle of the kan Ingan empire. Grab your copy today!

This was a fun book

I read a review by someone in Europe who found the attempt at a Scottish accent to be unbearable as he is apparently Scottish himself and it rubbed him wrong. Fortunately for me I have no such background so it was just fine to my ears. The story itself is entertaining, and the interaction between the gods overseeing the life of the main characters adds a dimension that I don't typically see in books. The narrator did, in my opinion, a good job of separating characters and was easy to listen to. I'll definitely be looking for the next book to come out and give it a listen too.

Blacksmith's son to Father of Kings

When Trygare is taken to the priest for his sixteen birthday as is custom. The father tells him that he is to be father of kings, he is to marry a princess and his line will rule over all of us for thousands of years. His mother is distraught and his father is not sure how to take it.

Trygare finds out that his father is kinsman to chief of surrounding area. He gives Trygare his sword and sends him on his way. On his way, the gods decide to play a game with him and he sees two girls swimming and approaches. He falls in love with one of them.

When he reaches the Chief, he has to fight his way in when they won’t let him pass. He shows them his father’s signet ring and fights the Chief’s son-in-law to show his father taught him well. He wins, but he just made a new enemy. He joins the Chief’s men, trains and grows. He ends up fighting a Wyvern and the country is attacked again by old enemies. He must stay alive if he is to have any chance of having one child, let alone a dynasty.

It is a good entertaining story and I would recommend it.

I found the opening chapter a little difficult to stay interested in, but I am glad I stayed with it as it soon picked up and held my interest. well worth the listen.

Emotional and Masterful Storytelling

A wonderfully portrayed story of a rise through the ranks with fortunes and misfortunes told,and how the threads of fate are so casually treated by the Gods.
This was a emotional rollarcoaster and very well written but looks to be but a footnote of how the future may be woven into a much larger tapestry of action, destiny and page turning interest. Without any spoilers i can only attest to a keen interest in more of this series and a impatience for it to hurry up.
I requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts.

Terrible attempt at accents

This might be a good book, I honestly don't know as I couldn't get past the narrator's terrible attempts at a Scottish accent and colloquialisms. I'm Scottish and listening to the mashup of Irish/Scottish and Eastern European was like nails on a chalkboard. Attempts to say the colloquialism for Father as Fader rather than Fayther was particularly grating.
avoid the audio book if like me you are sensitive to that kind of thing.
