Path of the Flame: The Dragon Thief, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It will take a thief to stop a thief.
Zarinth is a dangerous city at the edge of the kingdom, illuminated by the constant fire of the nearby volcano Ishantil. For thief Ty, it’s more than a city filled with valuable ancient dragon relics. It’s the home he could never leave.
When Ishantil threatens to erupt and put the city in chaos, Ty wants one last score before finally leaving it - and his past - behind. All while the notorious Dragon Thief chases the same prize.
The Dragon Thief has a reputation for a reason, but Ty begins to think there’s more to the job than just the prize.
Success means more than freedom. It means he can buy the answers he really wants. And it just might save the city from destruction.
Packed full of action and adventure, Path of the Flame is the beginning of a brand new epic fantasy adventure.

This is the first book in a new series from the D.K. Holmberg. The book focuses on the character Tydornen, or Ty for short. Ty resides on the edge of his kingdom, in the city of Zarinth, near the volcano Ishantil, which is preparing to erupt over the course of the book. The book covers events largely within approximately a week's span. Ty is portrayed as an aspiring thief, who took up the trade in the absence of his parents, who disappeared years ago. Ty was left alone by his brother, Albion, who took up religious orders for the Path of the Flame. Ty aspires to be like the legendary thief, the Dragon Thief, in order to accumulate wealth to help him find his parents. Throughout the book, Ty's quest evolves, as he enjoys the support of his friends.
Holmberg's story has a number of interesting twists, with well paced action. It kept my interest throughout, with well defined, distinctive characters and an intriguing plot, with a number of twists. I'm not thrilled with the stopping point of the book, because it feels like more is left unresolved than at the beginning of the book, but it is noted up front to be a series. Unlike his Executioner series, it seems like this series is going to leave more unresolved at the end of each book than some of his other series. The book ends with a clear link to a book (or series) to follow, as the story plot is unresolved. I'm not going into detail about this issue, due to spoilers, but I am left anxiously awaiting the next book in the series to see how the story continues.
This book benefits from great character development, an intriguing story, and lots of action. I don't recall any sexual content, strong language, or gratuitous violence. The book promoted positive social values like the importance of family, the importance of friendship, and perseverance. This is a great Fantasy/Young Adult read, which I highly recommend.
