cover from Audible

Narrated by Mikael Naramore

Length: 5 hrs and 6 minutes


Errol Magnus is still filling his brother’s boots so to speak. The Wardens want to test him to see if he’s a worthy successor. The journey to Apolos is quite perilous, and the party picks up some unwanted attention along the way.

Additional Comments:

  • A worthy, fun entry in a solid series by Kevin Hardman.
  • Who doesn’t love monster hunters?
  • Errol’s a good character. He’s powerful but not too powerful. He makes mistakes, gets hurt, and comes through in a pinch. He’s part detective in a way.
  • There’s fantasy violence in the story, but altogether it’s relatively kid-safe.
  • The Wardens are a neat twist on monster hunters. (Part Ranger, part detective, part magician.)
  • There are threads and plot points that span several of the books, but it still feels like a complete story.


Kevin Hardman has a wide variety of scifi and fantasy series. Of his series, I like this one second best. I like it better than Kid Sensation but not quite as much as Fringe Worlds.
