Publisher's Summary

As a cartography student, Jak has always dreamed of finding the lost dragon gate and exploring and mapping distant worlds.

Developing magical powers and becoming a powerful wizard? Not a chance.

Wizards are cruel and inhumane, warring with each other from their great sky cities and keeping most of humanity enslaved. Jak wants nothing to do with them.

But when he and his archaeologist mother unearth the gate, they attract the attention of the very wizards they sought to avoid. Even more troubling, Jak starts developing magical powers of his own, powers that could rival those of the great rulers.

Fate may have given him the opportunity to change the world.

But the wizard rulers don’t like change, and when they detect threats, they send their elite assassins to eliminate them.

If Jak can’t unlock the power of the gate, and the powers within himself, the world will remain enslaved forever.

Great start

Another great universe from Lindsay Buroker, with all sorts of characters. I think it is going to a wild ride and I can’t wait for more. Vivienne is her usual awesome self and I am so happy she narrated this book. I hope she does all the books in this series. Will try to be patient waiting for the next one in the series.

Dang.

So maybe I'm in the minority here but this book annoyed me. I could only make it half way before returning it so maybe this won't be the best review.

What killed this book for me we a 2 prong assault, 1) the pacing, which was so SLOW. It kept getting slowed down by extra details and inconsequential notes that took the action out of action scenes. 2) The dialog is king, and not in a good way. I don't know if it is just me, but this book felt like a screen play instead of a novel. More emphasis seemed to be put on the talking between characters than actually DOING something, which feels less and less interesting as the book went on.

###SPOILERS###

Also, the pet peeve that sunk this story from a 3 star review to a 2 star review is the DAMN BLAME GAME that goes on between 2 characters. Which after a certain point I just gave up on them because of how annoying it was coming across.

Wonderfully thrilling!

Some scenes a bit too graphic for my taste, but few and not unrealistic. A sobering reminder of sexual slavery that still exists in our reality. A great start to a new series. Heart pounding action and an unpredictably thrilling plot. Looking forward to the next book in this series. Jadora and Malek are shaping up to become a new version of a Sicarius and Amaranthe romance, which I will be delighted to read about developing. Their loyalties and goals may be divided now, but I predict they become allies and lovers in the end.
