Publisher's Summary

Six rare powers govern the land of Adamah. Possessing one demands entrance to the king's army. To refuse means death.

For hundreds of years, dark clouds covered the skies of Adamah, and an ageless king ruled. Those who emerged with one of six extraordinary Shay powers were forced into the king's army, an unmatched force with inhuman strength, speed, accuracy, perception, empathy, and healing. With the army behind him, the king - a man who wields all six abilities - was invincible and unquestioned in his rule.

To most, serving the king was an honor. But for others, it was a fate worse than death. When 17-year-old Nolan Trividar witnesses the transformation of his brother from kind to cruel after entering the king's army, he vows never to follow the same path.

Powers of the Six take you to another world where the smallest person can do extraordinary things, the undead infest the night, and the sun emits more than just warmth and light.

A new and fresh "magic" system.

The story is refreshingly new. The author introduces a new type of magic system/ability system that is intriguing yet not overly complicated. The book has a lot of action in it to keep you listening, but, more importantly, the story moves at a good paces and never has a slow or boring point.

My only criticism is that I would like to have seen more character development and relationship building between the characters. The character development is there, along with some relationship building, but the development could deepen somewhat.

The narration is simply superb. The narrator does a good job in bringing the story to life. 5/5

Loved it!

*I requested and was granted a code for this audio book for an honest review*


So, THIS! Holy moley it's been a long time since I read a magical epic adventure, and I found I was really craving one. And OH! Did this ever fit the bill! Intrigue, action, and a beautiful blend of different magical elements made for a fun, fast-paced read. Together with characters I came to care about (Yes, I cried at a point), this is a series I MUST continue, and is going to be added to my favorites of the year. Many of the elements were new to me, which always makes it more exciting, and the ones I was already familiar with had little twists to them to make them fresh. There were characters I loathed, those I loved, and those I pitied, and I thought they were very well written.

Now, for the narration. Dude. DUDE. This may be my new favorite narrator! Not only was his voice smooth and pleasing, but he seemed to know the story. The voices he did (I swear, one of them sounded just like Hagrid haha) were perfect and flawless, and it didn't feel forced in the slightest. There was no issue with switching to females speaking. The speed and tone were just...PERFECT! And yeah, I admit it, I'm a sucker for an accent. But even without, his reading voice is just amazing. I feel like he could read an encyclopedia entry on watching grass grow and it would be great LOL. I think I’ve become a total fangirl…

SO! Now that I’m finished gushing, here’s the lowdown: READ THIS. It is just so good! Anyone who likes epic adventures should thoroughly enjoy this. I definitely urge you to try the audiobook, but really, this book is amazing on its own.

Bob say: 5 Platypires because I’m not allowed to go higher!

An enthralling story.

The characters in this audiobook are fun to get to know and the story line is very powerful. It was a joy to listen to. I received this audiobook for free and voluntarily reviewed.

Enjoyed this One!!

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

I enjoyed this book a lot. And Gary Furlong did a great job. He kept you right there through all the changes of the characters and the action.

Kristal Shaff is going to make a name for herself when people find out about her and I hope they do it fast. This series could go on for a while.

Setting the ground works for the story was done with great ease and the flow was great.

4.5 stars from me

Powers of six review

Ok, I'm listening thinking this is a good four star, but then I realized; I'm listening instead of getting priorities done, I'm staying up late to hear more, the wife looks at me and says " take the earbuds out, I'm talking to you". That kind of listening is 5 star :-) .
Thank you Kristal Shaffer and Gary Furlong for a very enjoyable book, keep up the good work.

Not my cup of tea

Not a bad story, and the magic system was somewhat original. though it felt like was trying to channel Brandon Sanderson's types of magic. at the end of the day I was bored by a cunning, cowardly MC and a lovesick puppy sidekick. I've lost my taste for teen romance in the previous years. I'm going to keep the book and in the future maybe I'll finish it.

Interesting Story

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. When I first started listening to this story I was prepared to be bored but the author surprised me after the story took off. It took several chapters to get there but when it did it was awesome. The ending was a surprise and a slight cliffhanger although the book did come to a conclusion. You know that there is more to follow to complete the story. The plot twists and battle scenes were well done. The narrator fit the story as well.

Powers of Six

Decent book. Seems to be meant for teens or young adults. Magic system was interesting and narration was well done.
