I’ve been reading and reviewing a lot of fantasy novels recently. After the last couple of fantasy books I reviewed, I’m grateful for the introductory prequel story.

Despite being a very short story, there’s a decent amount of world-building and setting of the stage. It introduces the man who will presumably be the main character for the series and his motivations.

If you’ve read any of my fantasy records, you’ll know I sound like a broken record when I say that fantasy authors have a way with words. This story is no exception, the world is described in a way I rarely see outside of fantasy novels.

I get the impression that this story is intended for a younger audience, or is at least friendly towards a younger age demographic. Despite that, I didn’t find the story any less enjoyable. I read (or listen) to different books for different reasons and if I want blood and gore, I have series’ I read for that. This is a well-done introduction and has left me wanting to know more.

The narration is excellent. The narrator speaks clean and clear and character voices are distinct.
