Long ago in a hidden kingdom, Mtilan the Unborn King pledges his life to Legion, the fallen spirit from beyond the veil of time. Learning dark and forbidden magic, the new sorcerer gains both immortality and incredible power— but sacrifices his soul.

Over a millennium later, siblings Pekra and Lely reluctantly journey with their father’s killer across their island of peril. They seek the mythical cottonwood tree, the first child of their god Ura, hoping to defend its sacred life from both Mtilan and his itinerant Master.

But the brave siblings are children of the deer-folk known as the Gaewyn, a persecuted people. They voyage toward an uncertain fate unaware mainlanders have crashed on their island, bringing those who would enslave them a new, deadly technology— the gun.

Great Stuff

A fine show. Good story, amazing production values.

Fantasy Epic?

Audiobook style fantasy epic with what must be a mix of non-human characters (I guess as a metaphor for racism???). The story follows different characters in different chapters, so I’m guessing it takes a bit to find all the story threads to be able to assemble the plot for yourself as the reader. It’s not really my thing so I can’t give it a fair review, instead I’ll just describe it for people who might be looking for exactly this type of story.

Great production

Really a great production and as someone who is a bit late to jump on the Game of Thrones train, it really hit the spot for my audio drama appetite!
