    "A great introduction to a new world and quest."

    A great introduction to a new world and an epic quest.

    This book is a strange one, when I started listening to it I was very much wondering what is going on, what is the point of this book, where is it going. Quickly this book becomes something special.

    This is a great introduction to a new world and the start of an epic quest. There is clearly more about this world and I want to know more about it and both what happens next and what has happened to get the world to this point.

    It has great narration and writing that is very much grounded in the characters point of view this quickly drags you in. The narration really captures Abraham’s character.

    If the rest of Abraham’s quest comes out as another audiobook with Samuel E. Hoke narration it will go on my must buy list.

    The recording quality is good and I notice no errors.

    A quality audiobook, the only negative is its very short length.

    Well worth a listen.

    Story
    "A short story that really was to short"

    This short story really needed a few chapters before it's beginning to set the stage and explain things to preempt the ensuing confusion and ambiguity that follows. First of all the characters are named after biblical Old Testament Prophets, but are fantasy characters in a fantasy tale. But that is not apparent in the beginning. There are references to Biblical places, but the story takes place in some other world. The characters are not well fleshed out in the least and therefore I didn't much care what happened to them.

    I think the story could be turned into something of much more value if a whole lot more story were crafted to fill in the holes and PLEASE put a little effort into coming up with some unique names to avoid the confusion of what the story is supposed to be.

    Story
    "Short story teases of a larger world"

    When a simple fisherman is informed he is the reborn King Abraham he undertakes a journey to stop an evil forces from taking over the world. Unfortunately for him the fisherman is not burdened by having any memories, training or knowledge of his prior life and can only take the word of a mysterious adviser that his is in fact the king. Ill equipped he sets out to cross the sea and save the world.

    Warmache throws us into the deep end with the world, starting in the middle of the story and not really explaining how we got there. We are in a ship with 'King Abraham' as travels, through a storm and through an attack by adversaries. We are slowly given some details but never fully. For example, the fisherman references the King's death but doesn't give details. It is presented to us as if we were a citizen of this world and would know something which would be common knowledge to all in that world. The players in the battle are somewhat taken for granted that we would know them. Details and backgrounds are barely given.

    While this could be annoying for most stories, it actually works really well here. We are given enough to know what is going on and never be lost, but not so much as to drown out the story being told with details. There is a much much wider, deeper lore here, but we only see glimpses, like through a mirror darkly.

    The story is told is a strange version of present tense that seems to avoid a lot of the trappings of present tense story telling. This might be partially because of the shortness of the book and the pace, that it doesn't have time to get bogged down in introspection.

    Narration by Samuel E. Hoke is good. He is well paced and and easy to understand. He has a gruffness that perfectly suits the main character. He does not do voices for the individual characters (or barely does) but it is never difficult to follow who is saying what. It is all told through the perspective of Abraham, and thus all told in his voice. This works well for the story.

    "A good quick fantasy tale"

    Take a quick romp through a new fantasy world. Be ready for a very unique first person point Of view for the narrator. The story was good and fleshed out quickly though a bit unusual from a narrator point. Give it a go and enjoy.

    "Great Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Warmache by Mark Gardner and L. Fergus was a good read. Abraham finds out that he is the reincarnation of a king. He goes on to confront an evil that wants to enslave humanity. This was a good quick read.

    "Way too short, needs to be MUCH longer"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    The biblical references were interesting and the narration really was quite good, but it just never got there for me. The book was WAY too short and underdeveloped. This really needs to be much longer and fleshed out. If it was, I would probably rate it MUCH higher.

    "A good short."

    Interesting and great while on a trip. The story and narration makes a long journey seem short. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.
