Description

Winner 2018 SOVAS Award for Audiobook Narration - Teens, Best Voiceover

They are the fatemarked. Misunderstood. Worshipped. Hated. Murdered at birth. Their time to step into the light has come. 

An ancient prophecy foretold their coming, the chosen few who will bring peace to a land embroiled in a century of mistrust and war. When kings start dying, that hope and belief swiftly turns to fear. Roan Loren is one of the fatemarked, but has hidden his mark of power his entire life, fearing the damage it might cause to those around him. 

A great evil is coming. He can't hide anymore. 

In the spirit of fantasy epics like Throne of Glass and The Lord of the Rings, enter a world of magic and dragons, kings and queens, and victory and defeat, during a time when honor and valor still meant something.

meh

Listened for over half the book and was never taken in. Couldn't really connect to the characters.

boring

The narration for this story is great with no question, but the story lacks creativity or originality. The sporadic nature of the book combined with the lack of originality left me extremely bored and wanting for substance. The characters are unimaginative and the magic is outright pathetic in comparison to books like the wheel of time or spellmonger. I do not recommend this book.

The reviews made me hopeful- the story fell flat

Not until the postludes did I feel anything for these characters. The story was not gripping and if not for the excellent performance of the reader I wouldn’t of made it through. You fooled me again Audible.

Starts off strong but goes downhill

I like this type of story, young characters that grow and become great warriors. However, this story starts out in this direction, and goes downhill and then picks up speed to level out to a repetitive storyline. The use of the phrases, his heart skips a beat, blood ran cold, truth died on his lips..... I get it. I listened for 10 hours of this book, and then switched to music. This book could have been cut in half by just stop repeating the same old self loathing quotes. Very disappointed.

More story, less virtue signaling please.

Starts strong but devolves into a clichéd, and frankly boring chore. I gave up half way through book 5, after deciding things weren't going to get any better. (Better late than never) Characters seem to treat feeling guilty & doing stupid things as the highest of virtues. The author is constantly overtly sexist & gets really self indulgent as the books progress.

I generally listen to audiobooks while I work to help pass the time. Yet I kept pausing this one as I found listening to nothing at all to be less boring.

Mediocre in all the worst ways.

Do yourself a favor and skip this series. It’s worse than “bad,” it’s mediocre. If the book was bad, I could have just stopped reading it, but was just good enough to keep going, Now, after reading all five books, I wish I had stopped reading the first. There are moments of brilliance in this series, but they are spread thin and are strung together with miles of the self-doubt and self-loathing of the characters. When it is good it is great, when it is bad, it is terrible. One thing that drove me crazy is the number of times the Author took the easy way out by having his characters just “know” something there was no way they could have known. Saying things like, “Instinctively, he knew that doing X would not work.” Or “Something told her that Y had already happened.” Those are not actual quotes, but rather the spirit of the approach the Author takes to solving problems for his characters. Another thing that bothered me is the “”magic” means of communicating over long distances.. Other books do it also, but this one was particularly egregious.. Magic reeds that grow near water all over the continent. The reeds have an inky fluid in them and any thing written with that ink when submerged in another body of water anywhere in the world, will instantly dissolve from the paper, disappear, and reform in the body of water wherever the reed had grown, which can be scooped up by the recipient with another piece of paper, keeping the form of the original message. Further, the Big threat in this series didn’t seem worthy of being the final boss, and the intermediate threats always felt like distractions, as if this was really a trilogy that someone decided to extend into five books. Monster potions! Evil wood nymphs! A mercenary army rebellion! Vampire mermaids! Zombie Knights! Giants! Furthermore, there are the fatemarked themselves - Everyone acts like they are SUCH a big deal, but then there are an entire race of beings living alongside of the humans, and every single one of them have the ability to manipulate metal in ways that would be worthy of a fatemark, but they don’t have a fatemark. And some people can summon monsters or turn people into monsters, and they aren’t fatemarked. And some people can apparently make zombie knights, but they aren’t fatemarked. And some people can bond with dragons, and they aren’t fatemarked. Also, some of the actual fatemarked are just not that big of a deal, or they are disposed of so easily that its not clear how their “Fates” were designed to fit wiith or advance the prophecy of the western oracle.

What I’m getting at is that unless you have just read everything else, skip this one.

I did like the format of a book with 5 epilogues that gave backstory on characters or explained the world a little more. I generally liked the characters. I liked that the main character was gay, which is something different. I liked a few of the more shocking deaths, which truly surprised me and were so horrific that they stuck with me. I generally liked the moral quandaries the characters were faced with, and I liked that the series acknowledged that good people make bad decisions and vice versa and sometimes the right short term decision has long term consequences that are bad. Also, I liked that some of the bad guys are given a chance to redeem themselves (Don’t get excited, there are no Jamie Lannisters in this series.) But in the end, the good aspects of this series was just enough to keep me going and didn’t outweigh the bad.

Not much happens...

I did enjoy the book, but the story would have benefited from fewer characters and a stream lined plot.

The author did not seem to know if he wanted to focus upon the characters or the world changing events happening around the characters.

This resulted in what, I believe, to be a detraction from the story.

Just couldn’t get into it

I thought this book was very confusing. Way too many characters with names that sound alike made it hard to keep them apart and next to impossible for me to get “into” this book.

Disappointing and feels like an ambush

I got about 3 hours in and all of the sudden one of the main male characters starts thinking homosexual thoughts about another dude. I have no beef with gay and bi people but I don't want to read about in my fantasy books. I don't care if there are books like this are out there but a heads up would be nice. This has come up in a few different books lately and I'm getting sick of it. I don't like feeling like I'm being ambushed when I'm just trying to relax and enjoy a fantasy book. Make the books you want to make but please be upfront about what you're offering and give me LGBTQ genre tag.
