Summary

"I know the Order has its secrets, and those secrets are kept from the ears and eyes of the world...."

Eighteen years have passed since the rebellion within the Order. The once peaceful kingdom is now in turmoil, and its citizens seek a savior.

Emerging from the shadows, a dangerous man sets his master plan in motion - one that will elevate him to the highest political position in the realm and give him power over the masses. Only the prophet and the rest of the Order stand in his way.

Thrown into the middle of an age-old war, Arkin discovers the secrets of his past and finds himself tied to the Order. There, he will learn the way of the warrior and train under the tireless master of arms. And through the lies that he'd been told his entire life, he will find his true path and soon realize that it is not only the hopes of the Order that rest upon his shoulders.

It's possibly all of mankind's.

Disappointed and didn't finish

Why use one word when you can use ten., I think that was what the author was thinking. Everything is over explained and conversations are packed full of cliche sentences. One of the few books I couldn't finish. Shame because the storyline seems really good but the bad writing and poor narrative made it to much of a chore. with a rewrite, the book would be half the size but a very good story. Disappointed because I was really excited to read it.

I just

Could not get into this, I dunno, perhaps some of the accents were too close to home and that put me off or maybe John sounds too much like a priest, maybe try it again sometime. Maybe.

Good Narrator - Poor Storyline

Narrator does a great job in this one but I couldn’t even finish the first few hours. Story is way too predictable, not really engaging.

Religious propaganda--DNF

I would rarely review a book I didn't finish. Not my cup of tea? Fine. Usually not a basis for review. But when a book is touted as epic fantasy and the first hour or more is a thinly disguised pseudo-Christian catechism, I think it's only fair to let people know. It's possible that if I kept listening the story would evolve, but if so the author made a poor choice with the opening. The narrator had a lovely delivery. That's not enough to make me listen to more.
