Altin Meade is a sorcerer with a curse. Seeking to avoid a looming doom, he sets his magical sights on the stars--a quest that will likely bring about the very consequence he's seeking to escape. Far across the galaxy, Ensign Orli Pewter of planet Earth has a looming doom of her own--one of loneliness, depression and, worse, a race of genocidal aliens known as Hostiles seeking to destroy humanity.

What would have made The Galactic Mage (Volume 1) better?

A good Narrator.

What was most disappointing about John Daulton’s story?

It might be a good story, but I never got past the second chapter.The narration is so monotone it destroys interest.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of David Bodtcher?

Stephen Fry, Peter Joyce, Robert Glenister or Stefan Rudnicki

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Galactic Mage (Volume 1)?

N/A

Any additional comments?

In audio books the Narrator is key.

In the year AD 3000, Earth is a barren wasteland, plundered of its natural resources by the millennium-long regime of taloned, gas-breathing, nine-foot alien conquerors from the planet Psychlo. Fewer than 35,000 humans survive in a handful of communities scattered across the face of a postapocalyptic Earth. From a desolate village in the Rocky Mountains near what once was Denver, Colorado, a courageous young man named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler embarks on a hero's journey to challenge the fearful myths of his people.
