Description

The Next Great Fantasy Epic is here! For fans of Ranger's Apprentice and the Chronicles of Narnia. Everyone in Moorvale believes the legend: The brave knight Tristan and the famed wizard Vithric, in an epic battle decades ago, had defeated the evil Nethergrim and his minions. To this day, songs are sung and festivals held in the heroes' honor. Yet now something dark has crept over the village. First animals disappear, their only remains a pile of bones licked clean. Then something worse: children disappear. The whispers begin quietly yet soon turn into a shout: The Nethergrim has returned! Edmund's brother is one of the missing, and Edmund knows he must do something to save his life. But what? Though a student of magic, he struggles to cast even the simplest spell. Still, he and his friends swallow their fear and set out to battle an ancient evil whose powers none of them can imagine. They will need to come together--and work apart--in ways that will test every ounce of resolve. In a story reminiscent of the Ranger's Apprentice epic and the Chronicles of Narnia, Matthew Jobin weaves reality, magic, and adventure into the next great fantasy phenomenon.

Professional reviews

"Jeremy Arthur gives a thoughtful performance of this fantasy adventure, perfect for tweens and teens. Everyone believes the legend that the Nethergrim was defeated years ago by the famed wizard Vithric and brave knight Tristan. But when children from the village start to disappear, whispers that the Nethergrim has returned start to spread. When Edmund's brother disappears, he knows he must do everything he can to save him. Arthur's deep timbre is a rewarding addition to this audiobook, giving it a magical sound. He creates a wide variety of characters, and his crisp, clean narration is well paced. This is perfect for listeners who enjoy historical novels with a touch of fantasy and magic. S.B.T. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
