When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems.
The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation’s royal academy – a whole world of secrets in itself.
But this is only the beginning of his discoveries. Something is stirring in the land, something more ominous than the rising threat of hostile nations. Fearful travellers whisper of an ancient power breathing over Thirna, changing it, waking it. In the very heart of these stirrings, Aedan encounters that which defies belief, leaving him speechless with terror – and wonder.

A wonderful novel that gives readers like myself a much awaited dose of the thrill of diving into another world. This book reminded me of "The Name of the Wind" hitting all the same notes that drew me to that series.

Overhyped. Not terrible but far, far inferior to books like Name of the Wind.

This book is suitable for children/early teens, but falls short in almost every aspect a experience adult fantasy reader would expect.

This is some kind of intro to fantasy for grade-school children. Shame on you 5 star reviewers (unless you're under 12 yrs old) - you owe me 5 bucks! Someone should clearly identify the recommended age group for every book. This is just a childish repetition of all the things we've seen in hundreds of fantasy books. Poorly written with page after page of boring material. The writer uses only short simple sentences, obviously intended for very young readers. I wouldn't even call this a YA book, it's too juvenile.

Works fantastically as an audiobook, with good narration this is a novel that draws you in.
