Publisher's Summary

Whalen Vankin is the world's greatest wizard, and he has only ever personally trained two other wizards. One is Alexander Taylor, a young man who has earned a reputation as a brave adventurer, a warrior, and man of honor. The other is Jabez, Vankin's nephew and a man whose choices have led him down a different, darker path. Dark magic has covered Westland, and evil is stirring. Whalen and Alex must journey together into the heart of danger, confronting a sea serpent, battling their way through a goblin army, and facing down more than one dragon.

Alex must find the legendary Axe of Sundering, the one weapon that offers a chance to defeat Jabez and protect the land from the dark wizard's plans. But finding it will be an adventure of its own as the only pathway to the Axe leads through the underground tunnels and secret passages of Castle Conmar. But Jabez has one final weapon at his disposal: the powerful Orion Stone, which could spell the end to Whalen and Alex both.

Why ruin a series by switching up narrators?

I'm so disappointed! I've started the book over 4 times, just trying to get into it. The narrator leaves me wanting.

I wish that the narrator was different

this is the third book that I read that I I hate this narrator Kirby has taken over all the good books that EB Stevens used to read. so to me this guy one needs to stop screaming and his books two learn to pronounce the names of the people that are in the books and 4 make the Beloved characters that we've been reading the stories on fill the same with the emotion that you put into your voice.
I like the book I probably will never read this book again cuz I did not like the narrator and it put me in a funk as I was listening to it I very much wanted to love the book and play it for my children why they sleep because they love Adventures wanted to. but this is another book that Kirby has ruined for my children it would wake them up in the middle of the night and give him nightmares because the guy doesn't know what he is doing. I have had to listen to many books that this author has narrated and honestly he does better at cussing in his books then he does reading for little kids.

all righty now about the book it was excellent after you get past the narrator the storyline was a little bit on the choppy side due to the fact that I understand that he was recovering from his issues. I hope to hear another book from him it's because they leave many questions on solved. I'm still curious on whether or not he will find the people who the other lost bags belong to. and the end of the story leaves you wanting to know more about Alex as a team together. bear with the beginning of the book or skip to the next chapter cuz the very beginning of the book is super hard to swallow. I give it four stars which four stars is an okay rating please find some 1 oz to narrate and it'll get probably better reviews cuz you are a great writer even after your illness.

Wish he’d performed the last book.

This narrator was TONS better than the last one, I really wish he would go back and perform the Sands of Nezza

Don't Let This be the END. PLEASE

This was another great book. Better then the last book. But i hope and pray that this isn't the last book. I know M.L. Forman has a few issues and troubles but i hope he can find some way to write some more books. Alex deserves more! that being said this was incredibly enjoyable to listen to. It was so hard to put down. The worst part was is that it is over. I do wish they had brought back a few adventures from other adventures but i enjoyed meeting the new characters.

Yay! Production by Shadow mountain again.

Great Narrator, just like the previous books.

I read books 1-4 a couple times, then listened to them at least 3 times while waiting for this book. :)

Alex is pretty powerful but he takes on greater challenges, so thats fine.
Very good book.
Books 1-3 are still my favorite. There was more suspense I think.
-Whereas now (also a little in book 4) Alex is
A dragon and well, powerful.
-Also his O-gash seems to kill some of the
suspense as well, giving Alex
answers when it should let him just figure it
out maybe.

Yet this book is awesome because our main characters story continues. And Whalen is more involved in this book.

M. L. Forman please write a book 6!
I think Alex should go on a bunch of new adventures as the leader and he can help;
train the new kids in his group,
bail them out of trouble,
And enforce the values and honor as he travels throughout the land as usual.
-And if needed you can have this new
adventure in book 6 something real big and
worthy of his time.
-OR, it can be like a spinoff book, where Alex
Has downtime and just helps on adventures
just for fun! Why not. :)
