Summary

Illegal sorcery is on the rise. The quiet life Jon once had before venturing to the capital is but a distant memory. Murderous threats to the throne skulk through city streets. A rebellious army is growing.

But the king - the overwhelmed ruler of Lycast who Jon has sworn to protect - is just one of many targets. The mages who use this illegal sorcery have a leader, and this leader wants something from Jon.

It wasn’t long ago that Jon came to the castle with seven other sorcerers desperate to prove themselves. While Jon considers many of them his friends, at least one might actually be his enemy.

Those plotting against the king are everywhere, most posing as ordinary citizens. During the hunt for these sorcerers, Jon will learn just how powerful his own sorcery can become, but at what cost? Sacrifices must be made no matter Jon’s choices. Whatever he decides to do, it has to be done quickly. The traitor in the castle is waiting for something, and no one seems to have any idea what it is.

Very disappointing

The first book in this series was quite promising. This book on the other hand was very difficult to get through. I would not recommend if you liked the pace of the first book.

Enjoyable.

This book is easily as good as the first It takes the story forward in a creative and exciting manner. I look forward to the next novel in this series.
Again, the narrator is excellent.

Can't tell if I just hate the narrator

Pretty much every character sounds exactly the same and I became insanely irritated but Dark..... Mages. It is possible to say dark mage! I also find Jon a complete twat, but I can't tell if that's due to the narrator making him sound like a self absorbed idiot or if he actually is one. Might try reading the last book as the story does have potential, just really dislike the narrator even though he has a nice voice.

Great story development and terrific characters

This is a great series, with some excellent character development and storylines. Simon Vance's performance is pitch perfect and his verbal characterisation of each character is a testament to his range and ability. Looking forward to the third installment.

Politically correct for a medeviel fantasy book

This book is interesting but hard to believe in some respects. It is a good idea but learning sorcery and listening to pubescent problems is a stretch for me

Excellent Listen

I previously read this series a while ago. I t was one of my favorites then and the audio version is very enjoyable. The narrator brings depth to the story reminiscent of radio programs of the '40s. I look forward to the next book. Excitement abounds.

Too much

The first book was much better. Simon Vance does a wonderful job of narrating, But the storyline gets old and way too repetitive. I had to quit with about two hours left because I felt like I was just reading a formulaic teen drama.

For people with short memory

This story is for people with short memory, because I swear in the last book the protagonist was killing "dark mages" (a stupidly generic name for the opposing mages BTW) with ease. So why is it in this book he's struggling on single encounter foes like they're the hardest bosses in dark souls. It makes zero sense. And another thing that grinds my gears is it a lot of smart people in the last book are making a lot of dumb decisions in this book; minus the king, he made bad decisions in the last book by not trusting the people he hired and he is not trusting the people he in this one to do their jobs.
All can say is that I was rooting for the bad guys this entire book because I was entirely done with this.

Disappointed

First book was pretty good. Hunted Sorcery is just terrible. For some reason I can’t return the book.

Freakishly age focused...

I have a love/hate relationship with this book. Its written in a style I love, but parts of the content make my skin crawl its so cringy. Main character is a Mary Sue who is automatically great at everything, incredibly handsome and all the girls love him and the boys want to be him.. and every 10 minutes we go over what an incredible difference in age 20 is from 18.. or how people 2- 4 years apart could never be in love.. everytime this subject is repeated I need to take a deep breath and wade through the repetitive b.s. to get back to an interesting story. I would have quit at book 1 if I didnt suffer from OCD to complete every series I begin.

I like the story for the most part.

I could have done without chapter 29, John's love interest was nothing more that a tease, selfish and hor ny. Usually it's the man that leads a woman on to get them in bed. I'm no better, but I don't write fantasy romance books, maybe the female readers can appreciate this character. It comes across as word count though.

A great who dunnit.

i almost always figure out who the perpetrator is very near the beginning of each book. However, this book keeps you guessing all the way to the end. When you're sure you've figured it out, something pops up to lead you in a different direction. A really good mystery.
