As an Audible editor I read a lot of reviews on the daily, and my listening senses start to tingle when reviewers leave not only positive reviews, but glowing proclamations on certain books, series, and authors. And when it comes to Will Wight, there's an overwhelming outpouring of praise from listeners for all of his books. Every fantasy fan’s dream is to discover a new author who invents worlds so wildly fun and unique that they become a new favorite, and I was so glad to come across that in Will Wight. Here you'll find fresh adventure stories that blend science fiction and fantasy elements, characters that are relatable and not too perfect, and mind-blowingly cool plots. What more could you ask for? – Melissa, Audible Editor
