Summary

Mercy has been keeping a secret from his loved ones and his village. A secret that could very well end his life. 

Descended from a group of ancient warriors from Aitus, Mercy is destined to become the greatest Keeper of Light the planet has ever seen, but one mistake will cost him everything. With his secret out, Mercy must now find a way to free his people and keep himself alive before Queen Mala and her Unity Council can cause any more damage. 

With the help of his best friend, Sylas, and an unlikely ally from the capital of Ozra, Mercy will need to master his Keeping of the Light Source, and learn to accept who he was always meant to be. 

In this sci-fi/fantasy novel, Mercy must go on a life-changing journey to find his inner strength, confront his traumas, face his greatest fears, and find his voice.

WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO READ THIS!

I can't believe I waiting so long to read this! it was so good. the characters are so engaging and relatable! the story really draws you in! don't hesitate to read this one!

FYI the narrator does talk a little faster than most audio books. however I usually listen to books at 2x speed so it didn't bother me at all.
if there is one thing I would Critique is that his voice for Kal seems a little too old sounding. however his voices are all distinct enough that I was never left wondering who was talking!

great book, can't wait for the sequel!

came for the water friends stayed for the story

tik tok content is good and all, after all who doesn't want to feed their ex to an axo, but the book is great. A adventure and redemption tale that has a story line that feels unique and kept peeking my interest.

Engaging storytelling!

The story is amazing, the trio it follows are easy to relate to and you can really tell a lot of planning went into each of their arcs. Patrick is an amazing voice to be reading and you can tell his excitement while reading the action scenes and keeping you engaged. His performance during the sadder scenes also brought tears to my eyes. For a debut novel, this book hits it out of the park!

Good story

I found the audio version easier to follow as I normally don’t enjoy 3rd person omniscient books. The story was good and I enjoyed the relationships between the characters and how they developed.

Almost perfect.

The story is wonderful, very well written, easy to follow so if you aren't experienced it's great for a first time listener/reader.

Would have been 5 stars all around except I found that some key points were forgotten at times. Meaning the character would discover something or "know" something but then in the next chapter it's being discovered for the first time...again. lol gotta keep track of the characters revelations and progression.

Great start for a series, for sure.

Great storyline and, even though a little shallow, the characters are relatable and enjoyable.

The narrator though... I can't tell if he's just got bad timing, or if the recording was edited badly...
