Publisher's Summary

For 500 years the Gods have united the Three Lands 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 - one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair and he knows the true nature of the curse.

Magic.

    "Stormwielder"
    If you could sum up Stormwielder in three words, what would they be?

    Stormweilder is a very interesting audio book from beginning to end. This is the first in a series. The book follows Eric through a somewhat adventurous, somewhat scary, somewhat enlightening endeavor where he is perceived as evil. I am following this series

    "A Slow Start Fantasy Adventure"

    This was an interesting audiobook with a theme that (for some inexplicable reason) reminded me of Lord of the Rings. They are quite different books, but I think it might have been the writing style. The book was pretty slow to start and I found myself confused for quite awhile when I started listening.

    A young boy abandons his family in order to protect them from his uncontrollable and destructive powers. When he finds himself in a deadly situation in a nearby town, his powers are released, destroying the town and killing most of its inhabitants. He is rescued by a strange man who offers to help him control and use his powers in exchange for his help defeating an ancient enemy.

    As I said, the book was a bit slow to start, but I think that it made up for it toward the end. I also think that future books will be a little more eventful...

    The narration was average in my opinion. It took me a few minutes to get used to the narrator's voice, but I was fully used to it by the end. He did a decent job and I will not be disappointed if he narrates the future books.

    All-in-all, I give the book a 3.5 out of 5 (rounded to 4) stars. I think that a future book will probably get a better rating since most of the backstory is now out of the way.

    I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

    "Fun and exciting fantasy"

    Epic tail about a boy on a journey to save the world. Fun characters and the reader's performance was delightful. Already making my way through part 2 which is also good!

    Story
    "A Boy, A Knight, & An Assassin Maybe a Goddess Too"

    Stormwielder started very slowly. Alastair didn't find what he was looking for in the prologue. So the readers/listeners doesn't really know what Alastair is looking for. The prologue was so brief.

    Enter Eric in Chapter 1. Eric has believed that he is cursed and has fled his family. After destroying the town Oaksville in self-defense and having no control over his power, Eric is hunted once again until Alastair saved him.

    Alastair offered to train Eric in controlling his power if Eric is willing to accompany him in his quest to defeat Archon and save the three kingdoms from Archon. During their quest to Chloe, Alastair and Eric picked up three more allies to aid in their quest.

    The story took awhile to understand. The pieces of the story came together when the goddess Antonia showed Eric of the three kingdoms and the two gods came together to defeat Archon. From that moments, Archon has plotted against the two gods and has turned friend against friend. There is also the mystery of why one of the gods left, leaving only two gods to defend the three kingdoms.

    Only one person, a descendant of the bearer for the sword of light, can defeat Archon. Finding this descendant would be difficult. Eric is being hunted with accusation of being a demon by bounty hunters. Alastair is being deterred by the forces of Archon. Allies are made. The fellowship is faced with dragons. Friends become enemies.

    The story is worth reading/listening. The hardest part is to get through the first few chapters before the story takes flight. The story is similar to Tolken's Lord of the Rings. Tolken fans: give this book a shot.

    The narrator, David Stifel does a very good job with the story. There is only one part that makes the characters sound alike is on the "No, no, no...." exclamation. There isn't any difference to distinguish the characters.

    I receive an audiobook copy for a voluntary review. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.

    Any additional comments?

    The story started out interesting, but never really grabbed hold of me and kept my attention. In the end I had a really hard time with this book. It took me a long time to finish it.

    The story follows Eric through his journey/quest to control/master his magic. Even though there is a lot of action, a good story line, great world building and a wide cast of characters in the end I just felt like something was missing.

    A narrator can make or break a story and in this case the narration just did not work. Although he has a pleasant voice his narration of this book is very monotone/slow most of the time. I just don’t think he was the right narrator for this story.

    I think I would have enjoyed this much more if I read it instead of listening to it.

    I found the book very enjoyable. I look forward to the next book in the series. I'm curious to see where the story takes me. The narrator was spot on. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Interesting to listen to."

    It's tough at times to follow, but the story and characters make this book a good book. The narration makes it fun to listen to. I received this audiobook for free, but voluntarily reviewed.

    "Horrible narration."

    The narration was ruff. The voices that were used by the narrator are distracting and detract from the story line. I have talked to many people and this is a common issue people have with audio books. Your imagination should be enough. The yelling and harsh voices just pull you out of the story.
