Publisher's Summary

You know these characters: The ranger, the fighter, the wizard, the rogue. But haven't you ever wondered how they learned to be those things?

Three months into his studies at the Black River Academy of Swordcraft and Spellcraft, Durren Flintrand is shocked by the news that from now on he'll be assigned to a party and that his only hope of progressing beyond the lowly rank of level one is to succeed with his new companions. However, Durren has a secret that may make that impossible, and his three partners have problems of their own. Wizard Areinelimus is terrified of her own magic. Rogue Tia has no patience at all with others. And warrior Hule is just an idiot. In fact, when a disembodied, floating eyeball is your most competent party member, you know you have serious problems.

To stand a chance of succeeding, they need to work together, and that means learning to tolerate each other while surviving a world of angry rat people, murderous sorcerers, and homicidal unicorns. But even if they can somehow find a way to get along, dark and ancient forces are stirring, ones no level-one students should ever have to confront....

The Black River Chronicles is a new fantasy series from David Tallerman and Michael Wills. Set in an academy for young adventurers in training, the Black River Academy, our new dungeon crawlers set out to learn the ropes. Follow them in their adventures and misadventures and see if they save the day - or flunk out of school before earning their next level.

What the Critics Say

"[T]his book is a lot of fun. Surprisingly realistic fun. Enjoyable, immersive fun. 'I want more' fun. And there's a promise that this fun will be followed by more. At the same time, all on its own, this book tells a great tale that comes to a satisfying ending." (Ed Greenwood, The Archmage)

"[S]uperb pacing, competent writing, well-described action, fun situations, and appealing characters. The first in a series, the book remains a pleasant confection. Well-crafted fantasy fiction about a team of young trainees tackling dangerous missions." (Kirkus Reviews)

"A fast-moving and energetic fantasy, packed with humour and magic." (Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C. Clarke Award Winner, 2016)

    My daughter and I listened to this book together. We're both ready for book two. Please tell me that there will be a book two?
