Summary

When Quinn was told he was deemed fit to learn magic as an apprentice, he didn't know what to expect. He certainly didn't expect to be plunged into a world of politics, demons, monsters, petty drama, and angry primordial deities, all while being guided by an off kilter, rant-happy warlock, who has more secrets than Quinn has problems. Nothing he can't handle, right?

Feels More Like Young Adult

I actually don't like the term Young Adult but then I can't come up with a better term, it just sounds condescending when it's not meant to. However, lacking anything better that's how this one felt to me, Certainly more so than it felt like epic fantasy which is what Audible have it listed under, there's more to epic than just length of a series.

There's nothing hugely wrong with it, the narrative and narration breeze along nicely enough but I didn't feel there was anything here that I either found hugely funny or strong enough that I could get my teeth into.

I'm sure it will suit others but certainly not this old curmudgeon.

Tired to Give the Narrator a Chance

I really liked the story line and can’t wait to the next book, but the narrator made it really difficult.

Okay story

This story is somewhat reminiscent of a Rick Riordan book, in so much that it has at times a juvenile feel to its darker characters, which might cause the listener to lose interest in this story. However, with that said this book does have some good qualities to the storyline, which I feel will make the listener want to give this book a chance.

A well written story well read

I had already read and enjoyed the book and it was no less amazing being told by a such a surprisingly good narrator that bright the characters to life in a ways I expected and didn’t expect and enjoyed all the same.

Did an especially good job with making Dale especially disgusting and the making ending antagonists fantastic and enjoyable, sounded nearly exactly as imagined for me.

Beautifully written heroes journey

A well written story in a fleshed out world with a character way out of his depth. Peri writes a good story for normal people in abnormal situations.

Great book, even better audio book.

Where does Warlocks of the Sigil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

top of the list, kept my captivated and the voices fit perfectly.

What did you like best about this story?

I personally loved the dialogue and the character interactions

What does Christopher Gebauer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think i already mentioned i loved the voices, but he really does ad that extra tone and cadence that sometimes the books just don't provide

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a lot of great moments in the book, my personal favorite was the ending though, it was a bold choice

Excellent book

I loved the main characters development as well as how the book kept you guessing and revealing new aspects to the character personality, you really see the characters progression and I can’t wait for the new book
