Fantastic book

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I picked this one up to listen to with my son. We both really enjoyed it. The story was well written and the narration was good. We were both swept up in the story line and enjoyed the whole magic returning to the world thing. The world building was great and the characters had depth. By the end of the book, my son and I both cared about the characters and felt really bummed it was over. I honestly didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. I would highly recommend this book to any fantasy fan.

Excellent YA Fantasy

The Soulkind Awakening has got all of the trappings of epic fantasy: the young learner, the aged master, sinister baddie, baddie's vicious minions, a quest fraught with danger, and a whole lot of magic. The author clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how the magic Soulkind (there are many of the mystical objects) interact with his world, and it works. Part of the reason it succeeds is the slow reveal. You only get to see a taste of just one of the Soulkind throughout the majority of the novel, and even that happens slowly as the magic users (Followers) are forced by circumstance to figure things out largely on their own.

You experience the world largely through the eyes of (the young learner) Jace, a reformed thief. He's got the usual cadre of friends (including aged master Turic), enemies, and curious abilities which harken more significant talents. Eventually it becomes evident that the long-dormant magic of the Soulkind is awakening (we have a title!), and then everyone is caught up in the epic quest to save the world from sinister baddie.

This is the first novel I've listened to by the narrator, Daniel Susco (he's only get two credits on Audible anyway). He seemed a bit in a hurry in the beginning, but once he hit his groove, he was solid.

I look forward to listening to the sequel!

Great Story.

There is alot to like in this book. Davala has done an inspiring job of creating a believable characters put into a great adventure story. The magic system is intriguing and leaves you wanting to know more. Where the writing shines for me are in the little moments through out the book which really brings his world and characters to life. I am excited to read book 2.
Daniel Susco does a good job narrating this book and helped make my commute easier.

Very well done

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this beginning book was written. The characters and world were well done and you came to care about them more and more as the book goes by. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series. The narrator did a good job of bringing the characters to life. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.
