For 500 years, the Gods have united the Three Nations in harmony. Now, that balance has been shattered, and chaos threatens. A town burns, and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, 17-year-old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back. If he stops, they die. For two years, he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now, there is another searching for him.

This book is very average. The characters stumble from incident to incident without any particular reason.

The writing is mediocre. It has a lot of fantasy cliché and repetitive language.

The narration is also not the best. I appreciate the narrator trying to differentiate the voices, but his deeper voice struggles with the female voices.

Overall, worth a listen if you have a token and need to kill some time. I probably wouldn’t recommend buying this though.
