Summary

Can faith, love, honor, intrigue, and magic cross a thousand years to save a kingdom from the ravages of evil ambition? Jewel Holden is the orphaned daughter of a king...but her heritage is far more noble! She, along with a close group of friends, control the fate of a kingdom and ultimately the very world.

The Ways of Mages is a story of good versus evil with an often humorous and decidedly ethical world view. No one is beyond redemption...not even a dragon!

Surprisingly complex and wonderful story

This was a great story. I was slow to start because I was not expecting several story lines in the beginning that it was difficult to start. I listen while I am working and stopped quiet a few times, it was not until I had time to listen outside of working that I really started to enjoy this book.

The narrator has a very nice voice and great measure.

I will be continuing the series

I really enjoyed the story concept and will continue reading the series but there r obvious errors, but it didn't take away from the story, I just kind of smoothed over them. I would recommend.

Intriguing

If not for the jumpy narrative this story is quite interesting. It’s a touch hard to follow and that took away from the ingenuity of the tale. The narration is great, well paced and it’s fairly easy to tell the characters apart. I would read the second book purely for the narration alone. The story would be much improved with a bit more fluidity.

Parents: no f bombs but there is language in this book. Rape and things of that nature are present and may not be appropriate for younger readers.
