Description

A land under occupation. A legendary sword. A young man's journey to find his destiny.  

Aren has lived by the rules all his life. He's never questioned it; that's just the way things are. But then his father is executed for treason, and he and his best friend, Cade, are thrown into a prison mine, doomed to work until they drop. Unless they can somehow break free.... 

But what lies beyond the prison walls is more terrifying still. Rescued by a man who hates him yet is oath-bound to protect him, pursued by inhuman forces, Aren slowly accepts that everything he knew about his world was a lie. The rules are not there to protect him or his people but to enslave them. A revolution is brewing, and Aren is being drawn into it, whether he likes it or not.  

The key to the revolution is the Ember Blade. The sword of kings, the Excalibur of his people. Only with the Ember Blade in hand can their people be inspired to rise up...but it's locked in an impenetrable vault in the most heavily guarded fortress in the land.  

All they have to do now is steal it....

Read by Simon Bubb.

Excellent story and characters.

Excellent work yet again by narrator Bubb as well. So easy to listen to him.

Complex Characters.

I was pleasantly surprised that despite the book following a typical narrative the characters are complex and compelling. All their motivations are diverse and feel real. No two dimensional characters.

If you enjoy coming of age fantasy with compelling characters with complex motivations the I recommend the book.

Gripping read

It's been a long time since jaded ol' me cared about characters in a book, but I eventually found myself cheering. Parts of it were definitely slower than needed to be but nothing written that was of waste.

Interesting story but horrible narration

Like the title says the narration was one of the worst I've seen on audible. A distinct lack of emotion when clearly the scene was boiling with it. Two characters could be arguing or yelling during a high stress situation and the narrator would never change the tone of his voice. He did make an effort to have different voices for different characters so for that I didn't give him a 1 star. The story in the other hand is fairly good. Predictably but good.

Lame beginning.... great ending

Great study on betrayel, bad governments, as well as resistance. I couldn’t finish a book for what seems like forever...... and now I finished this one good stuff!

Exceptional start, can’t wait for the next!

I read/listen to a lot of fantasy and this had me from page one. I saw some people lamenting that it’s all world building (a point I don’t agree with) but world building and characters are the things that bring me to epic fantasies. I think this one is a no brainer for fantasy fans and a very strong start to a new series.

Give it a chance

It starts off slow but it does pick up towards the end and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. This book almost feels like it’s just scratching the surface of what’s going to happen next. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

A good story mixed in 10 hours of fluff

There were several times I nearly returned this book during listening. All of these were within the first 10 hours. The story during this point drags on and you find yourself asking if this book has a point. A god editor would’ve cut this book down as there is a good story if you can with stand all the fluff.

A gem!

I have read/listen to a lot of fantasy novels and this one is in my top ten. Writing, storyline, and narration are all top notch. Highly recommended
