The Beginning of an Epic Adventure
Jute can break into any house, climb any wall, and steal anything--and he just got hired for what he thinks is an easy burglary job. The only problem is, if he succeeds, the Thieves Guild is going to murder him. He just doesn't know that. Not yet. Being a thief always came easy for him, but it's a lot harder now, particularly when everyone wants him dead. Hiding out in the city of Hearne, Jute finds some strange allies in an old wizard and a talking hawk. Together, they uncover an ancient secret of terrifying power. All Jute needs to do is stay alive long enough to figure out why's there's a price on his head, why a deadly shadow is stalking him, and why the Dark is haunting his dreams. Also, why on earth is the wind talking to him? The Hawk And His Boy is the first book of The Tormay Trilogy. The trilogy continues with The Shadow At The Gate, and concludes with The Wicked Day.

"An Amazing Fantasy Novel"
I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to my friends. I adore this book. The story was so good. I could close my eyes and visualize the setting, the characters, the entire feel of the story.
I don't off-hand know of other books I would compare this to. Maybe, but only maybe Piers Anthony whom I read when I was younger. This is much, much better though in my opinion.
Yes I have listened to other works by Wayne Farrell and I think he's a wonderful voice actor. He's one of my favorites. If someone is reading this who hasn't listened to his work I would highly recommend giving it a listen.
No extreme reaction, just pure enjoyment. It was like a movie. The characters were really vivid and the descriptions placed me at the scenes. This was a super listen.
I can't wait until the next audiobook in the Tormay Trilogy becomes available. I will definitely want to listen to it.
I received this audiobook foc in exchange for an unbiased review.
