This is our latest Audio treasure. Mason received this as a gift for Christmas and he/we have listened to it almost every day since.
The reading is very nice with an English accent, full of rich and interesting vocabulary. The story is exciting and the audiobook is full of music and sound effects that pull you right in. The story is full of fantastic allegory; christians will see the Bible parallels easily. This is the first of at least 6 volumes, we are ordering the 2nd today. ☺
Here is the product overview: Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer’s son, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword—not exactly a tool of the trade for farmers—but one tragic event initiates a world of revelation. Only then does he begin to understand his calling—a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill—a calling given him by the King himself. Teamed with a young slave girl, Leinad is thrust into adversity and danger—for the Dark Knight and his vicious Shadow Warriors will stop at nothing to thwart the King’s plan to restore the kingdom. Leinad will need more than a sharp blade and a swift hand to fulfill his mission and survive the evil plots of the King’s sworn enemies! Journey to Arrethtrae in this multi-voice dramatization, where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil—and the future of a kingdom lies in the hands of a young man.
