Summary

A riveting tale of magic, mystery, and adventure, The Chronicles of William Wilde will thrill listeners who loved The Summoner Trilogy and The Maze Runner.

On a cold winter's night, just shy of his 17th birthday, William Wilde became an orphan. It was a simple car accident that claimed the lives of his family.

Eight months later, at the start of his senior year of high school, a beautiful, mysterious girl enters William's life. Captivating and confident, she holds secrets about William's heritage, secrets of which he himself is unaware: rare magic flows in William's veins.

And watching William from afar is Kohl Obsidian, a monstrous, undead horror. He won't rest until the tragedy he started eight months ago culminates with William's death.

William's life hangs in the balance, and he must discover a means to vanquish a creature that has never been defeated.

Enter a mystical world where heroes are forged from the unlikeliest of metals.

Great book!

Any additional comments?

This is a fun book set in the 80s (my favorite time period). It is YA-but I like YA. I thought the characters were well developed, the storyline was fast paced, and the narrator was excellent. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Another great series.

As i come to expect with Davis he keeps you interested in the story. He doesn't slow it down when developing characters like some author which can drag a littlw. The characters developed in action which in my opinion is so much more enjoyable. i look forward to the next books.

The magic of STRANGER THINGS and THE MAZE RUNNER

William Wilde and the Necrosed by Davis Ashura, narrated by the sublime Nock Podehl, is a tremendously well-written and exciting story. Nick's performance confirms that he, once again, deserves the credit given him as one of the top narrators in fantasy today.

Fans of Rick Riordan, Suzanne Collins, James Dashner, and Brandon Mull will find a new home with The Chronicles of William Wilde. Those who loved Indiana Jones, the Goonies, and E.T. as kids will also get lost in this Urban Fantasy.

This story is magical. Both literally and figuratively. Ashura has managed to unfold an adventure to us that bridges the generational appeal, promising to delight middle-aged audiences all the way down to high school audiences, much the same way that STRANGER THINGS has done. As a 40-year-old, I found myself living in a nostalgic time through the story, with all the 80's references, while not being able to take the ear buds out as the plot sped along. The magic system is just being introduced, and we get to learn with the characters. For a while, I wasn't sure who was on whose side. With a fair amount of twists and discovery, hints of teenage love, and plenty of adventure, William Wilde and the Necrosed promises a rollercoaster of thrills to a wide audience. The characters feel like old friends from a long time ago . . . and some are, if you know Ashura's other works. You will not be disappointed.

Imaginative and gripping

Looking forward to the next book - this is clearly linked to Davis Ashura’s previous series Castes and Outcastes, and in the best possible way. I enjoyed discovering that some of the characters are (perhaps?) reincarnated but not always in the same roles....for now? Fantastic use of storytelling to keep the listener engaged and it has great similarities to Stranger Things with the fact it’s set in 1980s middle America and is full of unknowns that the main characters slowly discover. Can’t wait for book 2!

Great

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Nick Podehl is the perfect narrator for this young adult magical adventure that transports us back to the 80s! I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!
