Publisher's Summary

A beautiful young elven sorceress flees for her life in a dark world where magic is forbidden and elves live as slaves. Watching her are the Order of Witch-Hunters, the corrupt organization that rules by fear and ignorance, and a mysterious, wealthy nobleman, lord of an idyllic valley who is not all he seems. As the slavers roll across the lands, stealing elves from what remains of their ancestral home, the Witch-Hunters turn a blind eye to the tragedy and a story of power, love, and a terrible revenge unfolds.

    "Highly recommended"

    If you're the kind of person who enjoys erotic dark fantasy, and doesn't shy away from graphic scenes, then you'll love this book!

    The plot is interesting and moves at a nice pace, the characters are well-rounded and have colourful personalities, and the description is both detailed and well-written.

    Also, having both read the book as an eBook, and listened to the audio edition, I can tell you that, not only is the book itself an excellent read, but the narrator of the audio edition does a great job of bringing the story to life.

    "dreadful"

    This is so bad I couldn't finish it. It's a poor fantasy novel interlaced with cheap sex/romance novel type drivel.

    it's a digital book too so I can't even use it to wipe my back side.

    I feel sorry for the poor soul that had to narrate this.

    "Brilliant narrator and author make fantasy breathe"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

    I savor A. L Butcher's works. Their depth and quality, as well as their honesty, are rare. In choosing Rob Goll, the up-and coming Shakespearean actor, Butcher has played to her strengths: author and narrator both excel at myth and drama, and both love delivering a truthful tale. If you like fantasy with a bite, the Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles, Book 1 is for you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Let's see: power, love, revenge, all bubble in a cauldron of suspense when an elven sorceress ventures where magic is a crime. Where elves are slaves, our elf girl fights fear and ignorance, personified by the Order of Witch-Hunters and a mysterious nobleman. In a world where idyllic often means treacherous, and slavers lurk behind every bush of a land elves once called home, vengeance brews...


    Have you listened to any of Rob Goll’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listening to Robb Goll is a pleasure, and I've listened to several of his audio-books, and loved each, because each performance seems perfectly tempered to the tale he's telling. In his narration of Heroika 1: Dragon Eaters, this flexibility and range is particularly well displayed as he goes from one story, one author, one world to the next, while giving each tale both individuality and connectedness to the whole. Impressive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't listen in one sitting, but I found myself sneaking away to listen to parts, until finally I reached the end and wished I had another like this to hear.
