Ile-Rien is in peril. A mysterious army known only as the Gardier has surrounded the country, attacking in ominous black airships. Hope is not lost though, for a magical sphere created by Ile-Rien's greatest sorcerer may hold the key to defeating the faceless enemy. But the sphere is unpredictable and has already claimed several lives. When a magical spell goes disastrously awry, young Tremaine Valiarde and a brave band are transported to another world-a world of rough magics, evil mages, honorable warriors, and a secret Gardier base.

Old school fantasy meets modern war story, with a moderately interesting / complex female lead. The writing is decent but dated, a tad dry and, in retrospect, lacking in any significant character development ... this is not what I typically enjoy or look for in a book. But there was just enough to keep my interest. Did it pan out in the end? Maybe not. But I'll probably try book two - or one of its stand-alone predecessors - to make a final determination. The narrator's tone drove me crazy, and I definitely listened to her at 1.2x's the normal speed, but it didn't keep me from finishing the book. I kinda wish I could get her voice out of my head, though.
