Summary

In a world about to be destroyed, star-crossed lovers Lissane and Erun will do whatever it takes to escape the destiny in store for them - and the families sworn to keep them apart.

When a vengeful sorcerer unleashes a Fire Demon to destroy his rivals he sets off a chain of events that will eventually destroy Gol, a war-ravaged continent at the other side of the world. Unaware that time is running out Gol's scheming barons overthrow their king and strive to seize control, unleashing a bloody civil war. Baron's daughter Lissane, and commoner Erun find themselves caught in the web of murder, treachery, and sword and sorcery threatening to destroy their existence.

The lovers plan to flee Gol before its foretold ruin. But Baron Barola already has plans for his daughter and sends his brutal sons to deal with Erun.

Gol mingles, mystery, myths, and legends with gritty action and snappy dialogue, woven to an epic tapestry of dark fantasy. The novel introduces the listener to the Legends of Ansu, a spell-binding new fantasy series that will appeal to fans of Game of Thrones. If you like tough action featuring gritty characters set to a vivid fantasy backdrop of war, treachery, and vengeance, then you are going to love this new tale by JW Webb.

Pick up Gol to discover this exciting series today.

Invested and wanting More!

So funny story about this book, But first, I was gifted this book by the author in exchange for my humble opinion. Well I requested the book be gifted to me because I thought it was a prequel to a Legends of Ansu fantasy series written by the same author that I had already read book 1 of, lol but alas it was not. With that said though, I now have a second series to finish reading by Mr. Webb. JW Webb has a great talent for building characters that you become invested in. You want to know about their lives, struggles and adventures. This book is a history of the past of a people I have yet to get to know, but I am impressed by their ancestors. Erun and Lissane are so real in their lives as you listen you can believe and that is a great quality for me. This book ran me through the gauntlet of emotions, anger at the treatment, joy at the reunion, sorrow at the devastation. Over all a great start to a new series that I shall be reading. Thank you for the honor of your gift.

Intriguing

Originally this was not one of my favourite genres. Once I listened to the stories by this Author, I was hooked forever. The Narrator helped make this possible.

An epic tale!

This is an epic tale about the beginning of the lands of Ansu. It is a fantasy and a love story. It has many different people groups and cultures. If you enjoy this kind of fantasy, you will enjoy this book. I enjoyed it. It has a more adult serious tone than the author’s books about Corin, but still very fascinating. It is worth listening to.
The natation is excellent as always!

Great story!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. As I've mentioned before, anything Andrew McDermott narrates is a book I'll listen to! This story fortunately can stand on its own as well! The characters are interesting and well developed. The story world is detailed and interesting. The book is well written and I recommend it for sword and sorcery or fantasy fans! I'm looking forward to the other books in the world of Ansu!
