Publisher's Summary

Justan's dream of entering the Dremaldrian Battle Academy has been put on hold. His burgeoning magic powers have been deemed too dangerous to go untrained, and he has been sentenced to two years at the Mage School. How is he supposed to fit in among the mages and wizards, a physically weak group of people with whom he has never identified? Can he learn how to control his new powers without losing his identity as a warrior? Can he stick to his plans while the mother of the moonrats tries to destroy the school from within?

Fist, the ogre who was estranged from his own people, has now found a home next to a friendly human settlement while Deathclaw, the raptoid who was changed into humanoid form, has left his homeland in search of his destiny. They escaped the grasp of wizard Ewzad Vriil'l before, but his secret army grows, as does his influence in the kingdom. What will they do upon coming face to face with the Messenger of the Dark Prophet once again?

Messenger of the Dark Prophet is the second book in the Bowl of Souls Series.

Wish they were all on audible

I am always disappointed when I start a series only to find out there are several more books that are not available. I really enjoyed the first 2 books and hope that the rest of the series will be forthcoming soon! The story is very well done and held my interest.

A Finely Edged Tale

Wow. Where to start... This book was, in 1 word, satisfying. This isn't a story that relies on sloppy or lazy techniques. I found everything to be fleshed out and well done. I feel like the only questions I have are the ones I'm *supposed* to have, and now I want the next books! We have, as to be expected, some new characters and some of the same. Justan is certainly growing and I'm really looking forward to learning his story. His progression of physical prowess and now magical is so desirable, I think, because we're starting at the beginning! I've seen so much fiction where it's just a gaping plot hole between characters being green / raw recruit or whatever and then suddenly they're all Aragorn, Legolas, or Gandalf! Justan started out with some huge character flaws, and that makes him real. Book 1, he was raw, and he was arrogant. He got better :) I've really enjoyed the narration by James Foster. He's very talented and it has been a pleasure to listen to him. He distinguishes characters and maintains the voice of each character well. I will pay him the highest compliment I can think of - I am planning to purchase other works based largely on the fact that he is the narrator! Thank you, Trevor Cooley, for the awesome reading time!

No sense to be found here.

Note to author, Having your protagonist use the excuse, "I'm too busy to listen to ___," or, "I'm too busy to investigate this thing that seems like it could be important," might be understandable THE FIRST TIME... But Willful ignorance quickly becomes little more than lazy writing, from that point on. It makes no sense for a person to continue acting that way, after already seeing just how disastrous things could turn out in the end; especially if you, the author, constantly try to infer that the protagonist has a very strategic mind, and is a quick learner. There are plenty of other ways to drive the plot... Doing it this way just makes your supposedly gifted MC sound like an incompetent idiot, who gets other people killed because of his true nature (i.e., Incompetent idiocy, for those of you not following). End of note. The sad part about this is that the story -- despite its barely tolerable narrative performance, and its many obvious plot faux pas -- is actually fairly interesting; which means that I, as an apparently blatant glutton for punishment, will likely continue to trudge on through the series... And simply hope that things get better, as the author gains experience.

Can't get enough of this series

It's been a while since I've gotten so engrossed in a series like this. I'm really big on characters and character development and I love the way he is tying the characters together and growing them. The way that he gets the reader involved with every character really draws the reader in. Great story, great characters, amazing narration. Everything I could want in an audiobook.

I don't do 5 stars often.

I will say I'm disappointed at the lack of romance in the story, but one again, another knockout. This author is doing well, and I'll keep getting his books
