Ascendant's Rite

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: David Hair

Narrated By: Nick Podehl

Publisher: Brilliance Audio

Date: September 2016

Duration: 29 hours 32 minutes


The Lost Legions are trapped between two massive armies, both intent on their annihilation, because they have discovered secrets that could tear the empire apart. Ramon and Seth are going to need all of their cunning, tenacity and bravery if they are to get their men across the Bridge to safety.

In Javon, Cera Nesti, once again Queen-Regent for her brother Timori, is leading the Javonesi rebellion against the overwhelming might of the Rondian Empire. She needs the skill and courage of her friends if the kingdom is to survive - but first, she must regain their trust.

And most crucially, the Scytale of Corineus - the key to becoming an all-powerful Ascendant mage - has fallen into deadly hands: the Seeress Huriya and the Inquisitor Malevorn. Alaron and Ramita must prevent the rise of a terrifying new power, but to do so they need the aid of the 'Queen of Evil' and a small group of Zain monks who have retreated from the world and taken a vow of peace.

The time has come for the Rite of Ascendancy to be performed, and for new powers to rise - to save or damn Urte for all time.

'Vivid, dynamic characters and terrific world-building'

    Hair approaches religion, governance, and intrigue in such realism that the more fantastic elements are believable and even relatable. I went through the entire quartet in rapid fashion, and was most impressed by how the characters remained consistent even as they grew and showed their deeper parts. Hair is definitely in tune with societies' best and worst facets. Nick Podehl is THE BEST. The life given to this series and the books of Patrick Rothfuss by this man have made me seek him out as much as any author. I would buy audio books narrated by this man.
