Summary

Brion never meant to start a war.   

But when they murdered his parents and enslaved his sister and his sweetheart, they left him no choice. 

Brion of Wexford is the son of a crippled trapper living a quiet life on the edge of the vast and unruly heathland. But when Salassani raiders destroy his world, he must venture into the heathland to attempt the impossible task of finding the girls, rescuing them, and conveying them safely home across hundreds of miles of enemy territory. Now Brion finds himself pursued by men bent on his destruction, deprived of his protectors, and haunted by the knowledge that his murdered father has hidden a dark secret that could reshape Brion’s entire identity. Brion must find a way to stay alive long enough to get the girls safely home.   

This is an adventure series perfect for fans of John Flanagan’s Ranger's Apprentice, J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T. H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

A great tale for the winter months!

A treat for the ears as Jim Byrne helps banish the darkness of looming winter with his crisp, warm vocals.

A welcome fantasy tale for the ages as Elliot creates a world of fantasy and intrigue for the listener - bravo!

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE SERIES

Jim Byrne read it so that while my eyes were focused on the road I was also watching a fierce battle in my mind feeling the sweat and blood. I would love it if y'all came out with the rest of the books for I don't often have the time to sit down and read anymore.

Turn this Book into a Screenplay

I have REALLY enjoyed this book. The story picks up speed and I found myself getting to know the characters to the point that I'm thinking about them and what they will do next. I drive about 2 hours a day...a long commute and I have actually sat in my car in my driveway so that I can hear what happens next. I haven't done that since "The Martian". I'm not usually a fan of this genre but the reader does an excellent job and the story gets more interesting as it moves along. The descriptions of the lay of the land, the archery, the sword play is visualizing. Anyway....this is a great listen!!
