Summary

Mordecai has discovered his heritage and must take up the mantle of a lord of the realm, while figuring out what it really means to be a mage of the line of Illeniel. He is beset on both sides by allies and enemies trying to control or destroy his future. Gods and kings both seek to manipulate him for their own ends, and no matter what he chooses his loved ones will suffer. Will he risk destroying his love with a bond that might be her death, or face the madness that comes to wizards who embrace power without restraint?

European aristocratic titles

These titles should be pronounced as they are in their country of origin, it is, in my opinion laziness or at worst insulting not to do so.

Good Read

The characters are evolving nicely. They are becoming a likable bunch that makes you want to root for the underdog.

Very good<br />

simple but we'll crafted. Read it or listen, worth the time for me.. Even though it is obviously a middle book in series, it had a beginning and end that was satisfying.

he just cant do a woman's voice at all.

The narrator cannot do woman voices. he made everybody sound like they were 80 years old. No matter what age they were. When a 16 year old girl sounds like a 80 year old smoker It throws off the story

Great story. Awful writing. Recommendef

Author needs an editor. Fun, compelling story, though.

Performance was exciting and very well done.
