Publisher's Summary

Thomas was no one, an orphan with no past and no memories of his early life. The only clue lies in the strange birthmark on his chest, a mark that may or may not reveal his origin, but will certainly guide him to his destiny. 

Growing to manhood he will become a man of consequence and influence, yet the greatest gift he has to offer his people lies not in his power, but in his wisdom. As he strives to reach his potential he will face obstacles great and small and he will discover that some foes are too strong to defeat with power alone. 

The greatest of evils can only be stopped when those true of heart are willing to sacrifice blood, tears, and sometimes - their lives.

Way to close to religion for my taste

Devils, demons, losing soul to the devil, priests. A bit to catholic and I had enough of that growing up.

good story, eh narrator

I liked his voice and character range but the whispered everything-is-important narration got old. I know it's a choice, he's capable of not doing it. The characters don't always have that extra lilt at the end of a sentence, indicating every sentence is meant to have shock value.

Excellent story just needed to be a few hours longer,it seemed to be rushed.

3/4 of a story.
Needs more character development and relationship building to truest bring this story to life.

intriguing

felt like a special tribute to d&d, where the roles, backstories, and adventure all came together and formed a great story.

Lusam?

This storyline reminds me so much of Dean Cadman's Lusam series that I kept expecting Aysha to be an alternate name for
Sarah. Yes, the same narrator Alex Wyndham so this help account for most of the similarity. I have all Manning's and Cadman's auto books and love them, but this one seems out of place....good book but just doesn't seem to fit. I still find the book worth the purchase but as a stand-alone book kind' a short.

good story, too short to tell the whole story

The story was great, but a lot of the details and backgrounds just felt completely missing. With the majority of the characters, you get a vague idea of how they got to the places they were at the beginning of the story but not why. For example, you find out so and so had a falling out with their father and hate him, but you have no idea how or why. It just felt incomplete.

Narrator has only one voice

I enjoyed the story, Manning is probably my favorite artist out there, this narrator however, uses the same tone of voice no matter what is happening, don’t get me started about how every woman sounds the same, and the only way to tell the difference between the men is one or two have accents. Sounds like he should be a National Geographic narrator, commenting on how a lion captured gazelle, NOT reading a book that involves an array of emotions and such. The magic system reminds me heavily of DND and it’s a nice little story, overall had a good time and despite my issues with the narrator at least he didn’t make it unbearable like some I’ve heard.

not for me

seemed really good for the first few chapters but it's boring, theres no end game so far also the story is split between too many characters so it's just annoying
