MYSTIC WARRIOR 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).
“Fans of Hickman's work should be extremely pleased with this audiobook…this is a winner for fans of epic fantasy.” (SFFAudio.com)
As three connected universes—the Human world, the Goblin world, and the Faery world—are slowly being drawn together, young Galen Arvad, a human whose magical powers have branded him a lunatic in the eyes of the community, is captured for a sinister purpose.
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.
“Lloyd James personifies his characters with imagination and style.” (AudioFile)

The Bronze Canticles is an expansive new saga chronicling the world-altering changes that take place as three connected universes—the Human world, the Goblin world, and the Faery world—are slowly drawn together.
Book One, Mystic Warrior, centers on young Galen Arvad, a human whose magical powers have branded him a lunatic in the eyes of the community. When Galen is suddenly captured and imprisoned, his wife Berkita and friend, Cephas the dwarf, set off to rescue him from the yearly ritual that would sacrifice local “crazies” to the Dragon Priests. But the fate that awaits Galen may be far worse than even his own death.
