    Inhaltsangabe

    The ancient magic of wizards was anything but dark. It was the enlightenment that lifted humanity from the squalor of superstition, and the worship of fell spirits and capricious gods, but those days are gone. The shining glory of the sorcerers burned away the subtlety of wisdom, replacing it with easy power, held only in the hands of the elite - a new age built upon the elemental supremacy of aristocrats and the ignorance of the masses.

    But this will change, for the greatest power comes with knowledge, and the deeper teachings of wizardry have not been utterly lost. The last wizard of the old tradition still survives in solitude, nursing tired grudges and waiting for death.

    His passing might have gone unnoticed, but for the imposition of a youth too stubborn to accept his refusal to take an apprentice. With a new student comes new hope, and that hope has caused old powers to stir again. That the world will change is inevitable, but the shape of the future is anything but certain.

    A story you have to love

    I can only say that you should listen to this book!
    Took me four days to complete the first and the second book.
    The only problem that I face now is that I have to wait until next year.

    I can just say thank you to the author and the narrator that they created such a masterpiece.

    classic cishet male fantasy

    This could have been a nice classic mainstream fantasy story. I enjoyed parts of it, but if you dislike misogyny, heteronormativity and binary gender clichés, this story will soon get on your nerves as it did mine.
    A pity, really. I would have liked to like like this.

    Getting great

    I think the story has a very slow start. But it's getting really good. And in the end i get really attached to the character.

    Just awfull

    Story starts out with some promise. Then kills itself and turns into a cringe-fest of stupid decisions, flat characters, predictable plot "twists" and a solid 30 chapters that could be summarized into 1 Chapter.

    Complete waste of my time. I wish I could have my time back.

    Very entretaining with a good rhythm.

    Finally a story o coming to power that is paced over a believable period.
    The MC actually needs to learn his craft.
    Good book, will read on.

    Absolutely brilliant, gripping and unexpected.

    I honestly didn't expect much, usually sticking to a short list of my favourite authors. This book, however, was absolutely fantastic, both story and narrator. Both were quickly added to my list of favourites!

    Extrem positiv überrascht

    Ich hatte ehrlich gesagt keine besonderen Erwartungen und wurde absolut überrascht. Eine tolle Geschichte mit sehr interessanten Charakteren und einem sehr guten Sprecher. Absolute Empfehlung.

    Coming of (m)age story

    Entertaining listen with sympathetic, fleshed out characters. The plot is interesting most of the time but especially towards the end feels a bit contrived. The protagonist's decisions feel less organic to his portrayal in the book and more tailored towards advancing the plot in a certain direction.

    Eciting plot twists, good character

    I really enjoyed the charakter development.
    Not to fast not to slow.
    Also human interactions are quite realistic.
