Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes.
Least of all, them.
I read the Chronicles series over 25 years ago and recently discovered audiobooks as a great way to make the long hours I spend on the road seem to pass much faster. Hearing this book again was incredible. I have since listened to Winter Night and Spring Dawning and am in the process of downloading Summer Flame while writing this review. In a word, WONDERFUL.
