Publisher's Summary

It's been almost a year since Cyrus and Antigone Smith earned their places as Journeymen at Ashtown, home of an ancient order of explorers that has long guarded the world's secrets and treasures. While their studies go well, Cy and Tigs are not well liked since losing the Dragon's Tooth to the nefarious Dr. Phoenix. The Tooth is the only object in the world capable of killing the long-lived transmortals, and Phoenix has been tracking them down one-by-one, and murdering them.

The surviving transmortals, led by legendary warrior Gilgamesh of Uruk, descend on Ashtown in force, demanding justice. Cy and Tigs find themselves on the run in a desperate search to locate Phoenix and regain the Tooth. In the process, they uncover an evil even more dangerous than Phoenix, one that has been waiting for centuries to emerge.

The second book of N.D. Wilson's Ashtown Burials series delivers all the adventure, excitement, and suspense of the first - and more!

So good!

My kids (9, 11, and 15) and I are just loving this series. Exciting story, well developed characters and the narrator is amazing! So many interesting characters from real or mythical history brought to life. As fans of history and epic fantasy adventures we are really enjoying hearing the author's interpretation of Gilgamesh, John Smith, and the Vlad brothers. Thomas Vincent Kelly does an incredible job with an extensive cast of characters ranging from young girls to ancient transmortals, with a wide range of accents. My 9 year old son is totally enthralled by the series, and doesn't mind the violence, but he's been listening to The Lord Of The Ring and the Redwall series for years now. I think 12 would be a good age to start this series, and I'm sure most adult fans of fantasy would really enjoy it.

If I Still Had JR High Kids…

I would encourage them to read these books. High language, adventure, real life dilemmas, imperfect characters, with a hefty dose of imagination. This is an awesome series. Grandma of 10 kiddos is moving on to the next book in the series.

great story is ruined by TERRIBLE narration

This is a great series, not just for young readers, and it is a total shame that such a poor narrator was given this book. It is truly awful, one of the worst I have heard. Speeding it up a bit helps but only a little. This series is totally worth reading so if the audio version is your first and only experience with it, do yourself a favor and get the physical book. I want something that I can listen to but not really have to pay attention to so I'm keeping this book in my Audible library . . . still, if only this had been read by someone with more skill and nuance, it could have been such a great listen.

Fantastic!

This is a new favorite author for our house. Well written and incredibly creative. How often do you get to say, "There is nothing else quite like it." I am so glad that the publisher/author chose a wonderful narrator. We will look for more read by Thomas Vincent Kelly. Well done!

Great read. I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book. I felt like I was there with the kids. Mr. Kelly made it come alive. I recommend as a good kids read.
