Publisher's Summary

Mastering magic comes only with the greatest of trials....

Alec began his 18th birthday with the temple monks. By day's end, he discovers he possesses magical abilities.

Except his magic is unique. He doesn't require grimoires and incantations to cast spells. Alec's magic is entirely natural. He can, somehow, absorb the elements from objects and manipulate them according to his will. This power is incredible, but difficult to master. If he's going to learn how to use his natural magic, it'll take the tutelage of Archmage Diamondspear, one of the most adept magic users in the kingdom.

And Alec's training is not without its dangers. His abilities manifest and grow when he is in dire circumstances, and his teachers are not beyond putting Alec in the gravest of situations if it means his powers will increase. He'll battle monsters and creatures from his own world, and even those from other worlds. As he faces unknown dangers, he must learn how to harness natural magic....

Kinda Cringey

So to start the narrator is pretty good with the voices. Now to move to the other stuff. This audiobook felt like I was listening to one of those 12 episode animes that seem to jump around and confuse you, mixed with a wierd DnD character. It feels like I'd have to re-listen to the book to actually understand what's going on.

The characters are flat, and one of the mentor characters made me feel uncomfortable. Like playing up the creepy uncle role way too much even though he was "joking." I'm glad I got to listen to this free on audible otherwise I'd be sad a payed for it. Also the twist at the end made it feel like the rest of the story can be just thrown out the window.

Enjoyable lite listening. Doesn't require full attention while multitasking. Should be part of a bundle.

excellent narrator, cringey story

the narrator was great, he probably why I could get so far into the book before I threw in the towel. I couldn't finish, the plot felt disjointed and as if details were added In as an afterthought, the story felt unpolished and the characters' dialogue landed flat for me.

Nicely Done. Everything you want in a fantasy

All in all a pretty solid read, kept me intrigued and looking forward to the next one.

Giving 4 out of 5 becauase there were several areas i felt were glossed over rather quickly and a few scenes were a little predictable in my opinion.

Good Story. Easy Listen

this book called me by surprise. I wasn't expecting it to be that good of a story or the narration to be that good. however, I was wrong and this is a very strong book. shorter than what I normally read but a pretty good storyline.

Great for a road trip

We listened to this over Memorial Day weekend. Half to the our destination and the other half home. We found ourselves talking about the book and speculating ya out the characters over the weekend. Great easy listen with enough humor and detail to hero the adults entertained too.

I really enjoyed this book.

I found this easy to get into and become consumed by. It was relatable to other similar stories at parts, but it also had its own unique display of magic that left me looking forward to what would happen next.

Too short

I loved it and was sucked in immediately my only complaint was it was too short but that’s only because I didn’t want it to end

I really wanted to like it...

But it feels like it was written by a child. Unfortunately, even free, I couldn't push myself to finish the book.

My queendom for a good editor

The protagonist is charming and I would have loved to see where the story was going, House of Doors and all, but the language is so clunky and error-ridden that I just can't do it. It's too distracting.

Well read tho not well writen

Standard ya fantasy fare. Main character is a resolute and entertaining kid. The pacing feels abrupt. House of doors concept inylteresting but under written. Short entertaining but not alot to chew on except spiders

Good title from the plus catalogue

There are few annoying things in the story itself but it is a serviceable coming of age fantasy so far with lots of familiar and comfortable tropes.

I liked this book

But I don't think I like it enough to get the next in the series .
I started missing parts of the story as my mind wondered, and that's not a good sign.
it's got the standard boy grows up poor and suffering, something happens, and he's an overpowered hero,meets a girl, etc .
The bit I find unbelievable (lol) is that as soon as he has some power ,he sorts out the mistreatment for his fellow boys - just like that!

The execution leaves something to be desired

This book has a great premise but needs some serious edits. Additionally, the way the author writes about women is a bit creepy, the main female character is very rarely mentioned without reference to her appearance.

Natural Magic

This book was quite good. I enjoyed the story line. It didn’t keep me spellbound if you pardon the pun, however I did enjoy listening and I was eager to go back to find out what adventure Alex was going to get himself into next. Eliera was a nice addition!!
I will look forward to the next book!!
