A Real Series of Adventures

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to hear this book but i am so glad I did. The story telling is taut and I found it difficult to stop listening and do what I had to do away from it.

The start of the story gives no indication of where the adventures will take Marcus, the hero. Nor of how far he and others would have to travel.

It is the first book in a series so while it resolves the original difficulties faced by Marcus and those around him, the ending promises so many more adventures.

I am really looking forward to reading/hearing the next book. The excellent narration greatly added to my enjoyment.

I received a free copy of this audio book from the author and I am so glad I did.

Thrilling blend of action, romance and adventure!

Give this compelling story a listen, you won't be disappointed!

Not only is it an exciting tale of a fantastical and imaginative world with some very convincing characters brought vividly to life by Steven Garnett's superb narration, but it also holds many messages for our own world today.

I have been totally absorbed and am thrilled that this is only the first book of a trilogy. Can't wait for the audiobook of Spirit of the Spirit Witch!

Sensitive, Emphatetic, and Entertaining.

This is a well written story that develops its characters, male and female, in a realistic and compelling fashion.

This is ultimately a coming of age story where the boy is not some prophesied hero who need to overcome his dark past through sheer will. Marcus overcomes his past through the compassion and emphatic of those around him.

Curse of the ice dragon is a fantastically magical story that would be enjoyable for people young and old! It is a story full of dramatic adventure with interesting characters that are easy to follow thanks to the amazing narration of Steven garnet. He has an incredible ability to captivate and relax the listener. 10/10 would listen again!
