Inhaltsangabe

It has been 20 years since the end of the war. The dictatorial Augurs - once thought of almost as gods - were overthrown and wiped out during the conflict, their much-feared powers mysteriously failing them. Those who had ruled under them, men and women with a lesser ability known as the Gift, avoided the Augurs' fate only by submitting themselves to the rebellion's Four Tenets.

A representation of these laws is now written into the flesh of any who use the Gift, forcing those so marked into absolute obedience. As a student of the Gifted, Davian suffers the consequences of a war fought - and lost - before he was born. Despised by most beyond the school walls, he and those around him are all but prisoners as they attempt to learn control of the Gift. Worse, as Davian struggles with his lessons, he knows that there is further to fall if he cannot pass his final tests. But when Davian discovers he has the ability to wield the forbidden power of the Augurs, he sets into motion a chain of events that will change everything.

To the north, an ancient enemy long thought defeated begins to stir. And to the west, a young man whose fate is intertwined with Davian’s wakes up in the forest, covered in blood and with no memory of who he is...

Solide Fantasy-Kost

Das Buch liefert solide Fantasy-Kost. Genreveteranen werden nichts revolutionäres Entdecken und manche Sachen lassen sich gut vorhersagen, aber mir hat es trotzdem Spaß gemacht dieses Hörbuch zu hören.

Fantastic and fascinating!

This is a fascinating start to an epic adventure. The characters are believable and the magic system is just extremly clever and intriguing. Loved this book! Also, Michael Kramer does a great job at reading it!

Exellent Narrator but weak generic Fantasy

Michael Kramer is for me the sole highlight of this audiobook. His narration is captivating as always despite the source material. The worldbuilding and idea of the story isn't that bad either but nothing very original, and the characters are not too deep. You can see some plotpoints coming 100+pages ahead. I would categorize it as young-adult fantasy aimed for an epic arc. If you liked Wheel Of Time and/or Farseer stuff there is a possibility you might get attached to this series. There is room for improvement for the next titles.

the dirty underbelly of magic

I loved the story. It has real emotion and shows us a different side of a magical world. you grow to love some of the characters and hate others. my only issues are that some idioms are over used and the names are real hard to keep track of. its worth a reread/ listen to though.

Gute neue Fantasy Reihe!

Hat mich von der Art her etwas an "Das Rad der Zeit" erinnert, und mich von Anfang bis Ende sehr gut unterhalten!
