Summary

Winner of the 2018 Fantasy Prize and Kindle Storyteller Finalist.

This is one secret he’s keeping to himself. And who would believe him anyway?

Farin, the gravedigger’s son, lives in the medieval village of Heap. The 18-year-old is an outsider who is bullied and ostracized by the villagers. His father has succumbed to a life of drinking, and the young man has no option but to take over the job of gravedigger.

But Farin’s life takes a dramatic twist when the village witch dies. As he prepares her for burial, he finds an amulet hanging around her neck, and he can’t resist trying it on....

an instant favorite!

a great start to an interesting series. nothing formulaic about this one folks IMHO. looking forward to the rest of the series and it appears that it's just being translated from the German versions which are already on audiobook. Hope they get it done quickly cuz I really enjoyed them.

Great read. Well worth the time

This is a well thought out four book series. It keeps you guessing and holds your attention fast. My only regret is that books three and four are not on Audible. I was able to purchase them and have my Kindle App read them to me. But this author is doing a great job. We need more books like these four.

slow start, twisted ending, great voice acting.

struggled at the start but the amazing narration and intriguing storyline pushed me through to the rather extraordinary ending of book 1.

Proses makes novels (change my mind)

This novel would be a B- under normal circumstances, the narrator was incredibly loud here and there, there's some anachronisms, etc. I say this not to dissuade future readers, on the contrary, this a damn good novel. See the proses are what novels worth reading/listening to. If sufficiently good enough proses are put together than anything can be glossed over. Plotholes? clichés? it don't matter none, if it got prose, hun.
And thats why this novel is getting the full 5 stars in order to boosts good stories to greater heights because there's too many "novels" (Sufficiently advanced, litRPGs, Hayes) that are on the recommended list that are actually written for drunk toddlers. While a selected few may different opinions. They're wrong.
So because others have fail miserably, by comparison, this novel far excels
