Martin Martel is an exile in trouble with the gods.
After finding out that he has unusual powers, he is banished from the planet Karnak. Thrust into the tranquil world of Aurore, vacation paradise for the galaxy, Martin finds that the reality of this planet is much different from its serene veneer. The gods are wantonly cruel and indifferent to the chaos they cause: Are they really gods or just men and women with larger-than-life powers? Whatever the answer, Martin Martel must challenge their supremacy to defend his life, love, and the fate of the galaxy.

"Prolific author Modesitt has created a fully developed world with minimal words, focusing on the "ordinary" man as hero." (Library Journal)
A more concise story that has pace and seams to go somewhere, I have not finished it as I found it irritating and so am sending it back.
No, I like both SF and fantasy.
The narrator drones on and sounds very depressed.
I was disappointed.
I thought it was more of a science fiction, whereas it seams to be more of a fantasy................or something.
"great performance for a not so great story"
Great narriation by Kyle McCarley.
If you're looking for more audio books to listen too that can hold up to the quality and standard of stories that are set by the imager series or even the recluse series then you should look somewhere else because you will not find it here.
It's like a 2 year old took a box of letters, threw them up and want ever woods were formed, created a story. This thing is so disjointed, no flow, it is truly the worst book I have heard in a long time. So unlike L. E Modessit Jr. stay away from this bookk
