History, Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Some fun and witty banter between main characters and some (and I mean some) complexity of plot. A bit predictable at times with typical rehashed characterizations represented in Tolkien style fantasy.
Overall a worthy listen for some decently paced storytelling.
One thumb up for "Theft of Swords"
Not amazed by the vocal arts of the reader, but could be worse. Not bad, just could be better. The story was definitely intriguing, but there were some gaps that were harder to jump than others.
I have recommended this book to many friends and family
I love the narrator, his voices MADE the characters come alive.
Once you listen to this one you will be hunting for more. The good news is the series is complete and every book is as good as this one!
Royce and Hadrian
I enjoyed the entire story!!!
Tim does and awesome job of bringing the main characters to life...
Don't pass this one up....It's a great series of books! You can take them in chronological order or the order of publication. Either way these are great!
This is not my usual type of story but this book and series is awesome. It moves ahead of the likes of game of thrones in my opinion. I recommend to anyone who is looking for new series to get into. There are 6 books split into 3 audiobooks give them a try u won't regret it.
he does really good voices for all characters also just has a pleasant voice in general, story takes place in a wonderful world full of terrific characters
Definitely in the top 15%
The relationship between the lead characters Hadrian and Royce. The dialogue is fabulous. It takes you to this world and you are fascinated as the story reveals itself.
Hadrian is an excellent character. A kind of glass half full person. I like the way he explains sword fighting.
Hard to say, probably something like The Lost Emporer
Definitely want to hear the next novel as this one was so enjoyable. Have to find out the secrets of Hadrian, Royce and the Lost Emporer.
End of the world and Sci Fi are my favorites with a lot of historical fiction added in
Tim was good for most of the characters. His imitation of a handmaiden to the Princess drove me crazy. It was listening to a Disney cartoon.
The story was good except when the author dealt with the royal family. They were far too one dimensional. Occasionally the author would spent time describing the setting but do it in a way that had no bearing on the story. It was as if he was filling in space rather than establishing a mood or imparting some pertinent facts.
I gave up after 15 hours. The pettiness and simplicity of the royal court conversation and the settings just told me to cut my losses and move on to another novel.
