Publisher's Summary

The legend of Tal Harrenfel has a new, dark chapter to its legacy, and its hero quests alone into the East.

Though Tal intends to end Yuldor's war himself, Garin and their companions follow closely on his heels. Elendol is in ashes, and its queen has been replaced by one sympathetic to the East. Fleeing the destruction left in his wake, Tal leaves behind all those he loves in an attempt to save them from further harm. His aim is simple: Find Yuldor and claim the Worldheart from him, no matter the cost.

But Garin and the others won't let Tal sacrifice himself so easily. Setting off in pursuit, they intend to offer what help they can. However, not all the company's aims are the same. The East is fraught with imposing challenges, formidable monsters, and dubious allies. And survival is only the beginning, for its Emperor has a scheme in mind that may throw the World off its axis....

Tom's Bad Review

Tom failed to grasp some pretty important concepts in book 2 as to why it is that way with Garrin. Freaking amazing book and highly recommend.

Boils enemy blood in first book?

Now the best Garon can do is send some wind at enemies? Stupid. Frustrating and annoying.

A tale to remember

Legend of Tal is one one those storys you can listen to and forgot everything, Encapsulating until the end. Narration was spot on.

Wince wince and wince. And then he winced again!

Story gets very weary with the weak youth protagonist and failure to use a thesaurus.

A Legend indeed.

I thought the first volume in this story was full of challenges. The second story is nonstop perils, dangers and certain death ☠️

wonderfully crafted books

The characters are well established. They're very detailed and it makes you want to hear more about what's going on. you really have to start at the beginning and listen to all four books. But once you have you'll be hooked.
