Many years have passed since the last great Mage War. It has been a time of great change. But not all changes are for the best, and Asher's world is in peril once more.

The weather magic that holds Lur safe is failing, and the earth feels broken to those with the power to see. Among Lur's sorcerers, only Asher has the skill to mend the antique weather map that governs the seasons, keeping the land from being crushed by natural forces. Yet, when Asher risks his life to meddle with these dangerous magics, the crisis is merely delayed, not averted.

Asher's son Rafel has inherited the father's talents, but has been forbidden to use them. Many died in the last Mage War and these abilities aren't to be loosed lightly into the world. But when Asher's last desperate attempt to repair the damage leaves him on his deathbed, Rafel's powers may not be denied. For his countrymen are facing famine, devastation, and a rift in the very fabric of their land. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 2/10/2014

    " Reasonable book - a nice intro back into the world left behind by Asher - but really, that's all it was. An intro. Nothing that interesting actually happened. It set the scene well for the next book, but really in that long a book, i'd have liked a bit more action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 2/9/2014

    " Another epic S&S story that could use about 50% of the 'emo' dialogue deleted and be greatly improved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 1/25/2014

    " Not bad but some of the most annoying protagonists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 1/22/2014

    " Asher's family is as real as 3-dimensional, real life people. Rafel, Asher's son, is just as irreverent as Asher himself. Those parts I enjoy. Miller's tendency to slant her silent masses toward the darkness in humanity (selfishness, egotism, prejudice, mob violence) is disheartening at times. But when you mix it with Asher, Dathne, Rafel and Deenie (irreverence and realism) it's got a compelling force that pulls the reader in. "

    " I thought Karen MIller had perhaps ruined a chance of a second book with the epic fail I believed occured at the end of The awakened mage but she has done amazing at continuing the story line! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 9/27/2013

    " I enjoyed the continuation of the Awakened Mage. Very good ending. One I did not expect. I'm starting the Reluctant Mage now. I bet it's his sister! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen K | 4/21/2013

    " A great continuation from the last seris and a nice change of charecters "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terence | 8/6/2012

    " Asher's kids have to safe the world, about as cheesy as it gets in the sense of followup serie's but it was well written, i do however feel that rafel's character was a bit well rushed. Not nearly as well worked out as the previous serie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry Bridges | 3/10/2012

    " A welcome return to Dorana and the ongoing story of Asher and Dathne ect. Took a while to pick up on all the returning characters but was soon into the Olken vibe and racing through the pages. Straight into Part Two..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dale | 8/27/2011

    " This novel could easily have been 200 pages shorter. It plods on and on and on and accomplishes really very little. Wasted potential. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Morgan | 8/3/2011

    " I just finished and I have to say that I enjoyed it even more than the kingmaker/kingbreaker duology! You have to love a cliffhanger ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lbd | 4/29/2011

    " another saga of the Innocent Mage. It's Asher's son, Rafel who will find out if he's got the right stuff to be the Prodigal Mage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 1/12/2011

    " These books never disappoint me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/27/2010

    " Read thru it faster than her other two in the series. Didn't see the end coming... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 12/18/2010

    " Book #131 for the 2010 52 Books in 52 Week Ravelry Challenge.

    I stopped reading this on page 252, due to the fact that I had started reading this book in mid series. I was totally lost. The author kept referring to previous books. I may start reading this series from the beginning. "

    " This was a really good book continuing the story from the King Breaker/King Maker series. i was glad that i had the next book as this one ended on a bit of a shock. "
