Product Description
Taerak's Void
(Book One of Fantastica)
A new series by multiple award winning author, M. R. Mathias

After finding a strange medallion and some maps with markings that no one in his village can understand, Braxton Bray decides to take it all to the Hall of Scholars in the kingdom's capital. But greed is everywhere. Braxton and a tough young female caravan guard named Nixy are forced to run for their lives, for someone else wants what Braxton found and is willing to go to great lengths to take it from him.

With a hefty, kingdom wide, bounty on their heads, not even the great wizards of the Sorcerious can help them. Left with nothing but each other, Braxton and Nixy have no choice but to get on a ship and go on an adventure that will take them places they would have otherwise never imagined. Elves, dwarves, giant gothicans, and trolls, treacherous forests on distant shores, love, death, terror, and magic all await...

And  here is the link to AT&T's site with instructions on enabling the skill and setting up your contacts.

I tried it out & it worked! You have to say your message continuously, if you pause she thinks it's the end of the message. I can't see myself using it very often, but if your hands busy, wet , dirty, etc & you need to send a short text, it comes in handy.  :)

Your sent message doesn't show up on your phone since it's sent by AT&T, but you do receive the reply on your phone.
