Summary

An apprentice sorceress is dragged into a vicious quest across an endless sky in this Star Wars-inspired space fantasy.

The Axiom Diamond is a mythical relic, with the power to show its bearer any truth they desire. Men have sought for it across many continents for centuries but in vain. When trainee sorceress Aimee de Laurent's first ever portal-casting goes awry, she and her mentor are thrown into the race to find the gem, on the skyship Elysium. Opposing them are the infamous magic-wielding knights of the Eternal Order and their ruthless commander, Lord Azrael, who will destroy everything in their path....

Remarkable story.

The characters are engaging and have good depth, especially Asrael. The floating isles concept is awesome. I cannot wait until book 2 is on audible.

fine

I bounced off this about half way through. I can't say it's particularly awful but it's a bit borring. it's a shame because there are lots of neat ideas inside. Space magic, magic knights, portal jumping space ship things. I honestly wanted to love this book but just couldn't. Sorry.

Unbelievably boring and unbelievable characters.

The Narrator just simply grates on my nerves. But that is simply my personal preference.

I am a huge fan of Authors & Dragons, so bought this book solely in deference for the wit and personality shown on the podcast. Hoping his writing would show those facets also.
At first the story showed a rich world and interesting heroine. But soon over worded descriptions, imprecise character directions left the audible feeling like off keyed notes and jarring distractions preventing me from being engrossed in the story.

I main plot structure shows potential. But a major, if not complete rewrite required to take this book from subpar to professional.
