MYSTIC QUEST by Tracy and Laura Hickman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “An enthralling fantasy novel with plenty of action and fully-developed characters. Mystic Quest is fantasy at its very best.” (Midwest Book Review) Following Mystic Warrior, here is Book Two of the Bronze Canticles, a trilogy of magic, heroism, and splendor. A new generation of heroes will set out on separate, life-altering journeys in search of freedom or atonement beyond the power of magic. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Lloyd James. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. This emotionally charged, intense novel’s crafted magical system and likable characters evoke an atmosphere both timely and timeless.” (Publishers Weekly) •EXPERIENCE. About 17 hours of narration.

RATING: 9+ Suitable for adults or young adults who enjoy thrilling fantasy adventures. ___________________ Now, after Mystic Warrior, comes Mystic Quest, Book Two of the Bronze Canticles, a trilogy of magic and heroism, mystery and splendor. Twenty-three years have passed since Galen Arvad first exposed the deep magic. Now, that magic brings tragedy and darkness to the lives of all who wield it in the world. Galen and his clans suffer an endless war in the realm of the dragonkings, the fairies contend with a gruesome kingdom of the undead, and in the realm of the reanimated, rusting titans, a tyrant goblin’s lust for conquest goes unchecked. A new generation of heroes will set out on separate, life-altering journeys. Whether in search of freedom or atonement, each will find their redemption may be beyond the power of magic—for their darkest secrets and greatest dangers are those they bring with them.
