Description

"An extraordinary new series" (Book Reader's Heaven)

Number One New Adult and College Best Seller

Number Two Fantasy Best Seller

Top Ten Fantasy (Overall)

Voice Arts Award Nominee (Fantasy)

All Will Blackwood ever wanted was a little adventure. A fantasy addict and apprentice builder in New Orleans, struggling to make ends meet, he has long wished for an escape from the real world.

Late one night, he and his brothers receive a surprise inheritance: a staff with a mysterious stone on top, a pair of rogue's bracers, and a sword that Will can barely lift. A man who stops bullets with a glance shows up to take the sword, and the three brothers barely escape with their lives. Searching for an explanation, it is not until a magical key whisks them across time and space, into a terrifying version of New Orleans ruled by wizards, that Will accepts the truth about his family's past.

It seems Will Blackwood has found his adventure. But this isn't one of his fantasy novels, or a gaming campaign with friends. In his father's world, magic and monsters are real. Choices are life and death. And they have no idea how to get home....

Cool Adventure!!!

First of all, this book took me out of my normal genre, so I didn't know if I would like it or not. I admit that it did move a little too slow in the beginning and I was almost ready to stop listening. It was the only reason I only gave 4 stars for the story. But then the adventure and the action started as well as a bit of mystery about the brothers' father. I was also surprised at some of the things that happened so that was good as it wasn't a cookie-cutter formulaic type story.

The characters were great. The narrator did a great job of giving each one a voice. Hmph. That older brother and then Will and his spirit for adventure. I enjoyed all of the brothers' personalities.

This was a good start to a series and I am looking forward to Book Two.

Epic Adventure!

It took me some time to get into the audiobook as the opening was a bit slow. I wasn't particularly bonding with the characters at first, but then the story came to life. The rhythm and pace of the plot picked up. I found myself enjoying the action, scenery, and movement. The dialog was not really memorable, but the kinetic energy of the plot sustained me. I cannot wait until the next book in the series is released!

A good book for a new fantasy series

I recently discovered Layton Green, and devoured his Dominic Grey series in a few weeks. I wanted to listen to something else from him, so took a chance on the Blackwood Saga. Green's Dominic Grey series was well written and thought out, and while I found this book not as compelling as the first book in the other series, it was enough of a good read that I kept returning and listening. The pace was consistent, avoiding the pitfall of over explaining, and it felt like I was discovering this new world along with the Brothers Blackwood, sharing in their fear and awe as they absorbed their new surroundings. Green provides enough parallel to Earth mythology to be familiar, and anyone who has played AD&D will find a lot of similarities, down to construction of an effective adventuring party.

The Blackwood Brothers are a bit of a cliche with an overachieving oldest sibling, the free spirited middle child, and the youngest trying to find his own place in his family. I enjoyed the character development in the Dominic Grey series, and I felt this book could have used a little bit more of that, but I didn't think it was enough to leave it lacking. For lovers of fantasy, this will prove a satisfying read.

Good story

The start of this story was pretty slow - so much in fact that I almost put it down. That being said this is a great book, and once you get into the thick of things taking a break is hard.

Narration was well done.

Fantasy novel with Vampires, Minotaurs and Wizards

The author created an original fantasy world in a pseudo parallel universe where magic, wizards, zombies, vampires, minotaurs, and other common fantasy creatures/elements exist. The author did an excellent job setting the scenery and describing this world. It could be a campaign setting for a D&D game, there’s even a dungeon with puzzles included. Most of the main characters start out fairly one dimensional and kind of hard to connect with, but they do evolve throughout the book. The narrator does a great job with this book. I liked the accents and voices he gave the characters. I’ll be listening to book two when it’s available.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

Ignore the nay sayers, this book is phenomenal

This book was fantastic. A lot of twists and turns you wouldn’t see coming and the details just suck you in. I can’t wait to read the next book.

As for parents, I’d rate this in the PG13 zone, some suggestive language and scenes, references to breasts but nothing that crosses into “steamy shower scenes” territory. Language isn’t terribly colorful, no F*bombs or things of that nature. The gore in battle scenes does have some solid detail so if you’re a lightweight when it comes to that stuff you’ll only need to buckle up a moderate amount.

One thing I didn’t love is that it takes the main character close to half the book to really gain ground; after he does, you won’t want to put this down for a second.

If you’re debating this book and have enjoyed things like unto Harry Potter, Beyonders, or simply enjoy a book where magic and reality collide—just read it already, you won’t regret it!
