    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!

    Fantasy Storytelling Buffet

    I don't mean this review to sound too harshly, because overall this is a serviceable story well performed. However, if you are looking for something special or new, you won't find it here. The story is a wild mix of fantasy clichés with some unnecessary grim-dark elements thrown in for good measure. The book is so happy with world-building, it is constantly revealing new factions, conspiracies and twists into the story. Once time-travel and mind-control get introduced, the built up tension leaves the story immediately, because all prior information given could be potentially wrong. Still, there are some interesting character moments, but it wasn't enough for me to get me invested. I won't buy the sequel - but if any of the above sounds appealing to you, give it a go.

    superb performance, great book

    Wonderfully narrated with fitting shifts of voice for various characters. A pleasure to listen to that makes the story even more capturing

    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.

    A little bit of everything phantasy has to offer

    While the flow of the story is nice. I lost a little bit interrest in the middle. My problem is the goku-power-lvl ending of the hero because its a trilogy and it leaves a lot of questions open, that should be no problem at that point.

    Awful narrator

    The book is ok, but the narrator sounds like cheap text-to-speach software, with a monotonous, hardly comprehensible accent.

    great!

    Great Story, with interesting characters set in a fascinating world. Not as good as the Storm light Archives, but still one of my favorite 'hearings' this year!

    Not my cuppa, you might like it.

    The narrator was great, as usual, but for a reason I can't quite figutr out, I stopped several times throughout the book. It was well written and had enough tension, but I guess it was just too... dreary for me? Perhaps also a bit too grandiose and pompous. The author clearly has big plans for this series, but I didn't find the protagonist and deuteragonists likeable enough to continue.

    While I won't be continuing the series, I think people who like long, sprawling epic fantasy with prophecies and seemingly futile struggles against forces the reader doesn't understand will like this one.

    Good Book, good production, good narrator.

    i really enjoyed this audiobook. it is well-narrated and the story is not your average YA stuff, clearly meant for adults. good book, it has my recommendation.
