Summary

Idi & the Oracle's Quest

Idi, called to protect the future king of Talia, needs the guidance of Marcus, a sagacious magician, to defeat the sinister Norvora. Yet, his greatest challenge will be overcoming his entrenched belief that he's stupid.

Held prisoners within a magical orb, the Sister Witches wait to be released. When the prophesied one is crowned King, he will have the power to set them free. At all costs, he must be found and turned away from the evil that is seeping into the world of Talia.

Idi’s life so far has been full of sorrow. He longs to leave the village and to go in search of adventure. When Marcus the magician turns up and asks Idi to join him on a quest, Idi doesn’t hesitate. They set off together across the lands of Talia in search of the mother who bring the new King into their world. They must find her before Norvora and his minions do, the Oracle is relying on them to keep the new King safe.

But the world of Talia is changing, the demons becoming bolder, and time is running out. The Witches must decide which side to fight on, and Idi must learn to be the greatest magician Talia has ever seen if he is to save them all.

I liked the little snippets you got of the future

I liked the little snippets you got of the future, hints of what the characters were going to become. How awesome their story is going to be. Them little bits made me want to know how they were going to become this great person. Also nice to see the characters develop from a young age.

I listened to the story on audible even though I was given the physical copy. (I can listen to audio at work = gets to it faster) It did feel like the story skipped in a few places, or that it could have been made clearer, that it was switching from character to character.

Book q

This audio book is suitable for the YA audience. It has a wonderful underlying message about the importance of believing in yourself and accepting your flaws. The characters and the world are so realistic

An Unlikely Hero Unlike Others


I wish this was all in ONE book instead of a ‘trilogy’!

I loved this (almost?) MG magnificent quest adventure! An early murder the reader is witnessed to and an almost off the pages teen tryst/pregnancy and crowning birth- are the only concerns for younger readers.

The characters were all loud and vivid. Very clearly defined.

The plots and sub themes slowly came together and was both subtle yet almost perceivable.

The fairies were incredible and shape shifters! I’m not a fan of most shape shifting fantasies but this worked. And I LIKED it.

The antagonist was easily someone you wanted to punch in the face. Very cut and dry evil. If he has a redeeming quality, we’ve yet to see it. And since it was admitted his followers ‘used women for one reason only’, its highly unlikely to hope we’ll ever empathize with him.

Our protagonist and his mentor are very Noblebright. I feel like we didn’t watch Idi grow; it was almost something that happened because we were told he changed.

With the flipping back and forth with our main and supporting characters, timing was lost and unexplained or skipped over.

For anyone accepting these minuscule flaws and is looking for a quick, incredible tale that will sweep you up and make you wish you had all three books to listen to in one day, I’d strongly recommend this.

Steve White is a very talented voice actor. The over dozen characters had distinguishing voices and emotions. He was very easy to listen to and brought this audiobook to life. It was more than I expected.

Nice story..

This was a fun story. I can't wait to see the next part... The characters were well thought out and the narration was done very nicely! This book was provided free of charge in exchange for a fair review. Thank You!

Delightful listen

Am not a big fan of fantasy novels but this one did hold my attention. Idi, a bullied orphan destined to meet the old washed out wizard Marcus. Marcus main focus was to find a princess and her baby in hiding. Yet, it was not easy finding this young woman and while he searched he took Idi under his wings and Idi had the makings of being a great wizard. Years later, they did find the young princess and her son but it ends with not everything turning out as they hoped. Of course, this just books 1 and hopefully, in book 2 all will turn out right.
