It is a great story that keeps you interested all the way through. As it is broken into two books within theft of swords so it makes it easier to read.
I am looking forward to the remaining books in this series. Michael J. Sullivan takes you back in time (or is it forward in time) to a place of mysteries and intrigue filled with talented good good guys and really bad guys. The story moves quickly and is a really good listen. You can escape into another world of challenges and successes. Be very careful that you do not listen to this story while riding on the Interstate. You may just miss your next planned turn off and end up 50 miles or so out of your way.
Tim Gerard is able to play the different parts so that you are able to see the new character talking no matter the gender or age. He listens well and is easy on the ears.
Could have been an all in one sitting book. I just do not listen to books that way.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Captivating, thrilling, and adventurous
It's difficult to pick only one,but I'll choose the protaganist Hadrian Blackwater, 95% of the time he found the silver lining and he was a hero to the end.
No, this was my first listen and I really enjoy his writing talent.
Definitely, but too many hours to pull off that goal.
Thank you Tim Gerard Reynolds, I hope you will permit Audible to release your final book of the trilogy: HEIR OF NOVRON. I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I look forward to the audio version. The narrator does a teriffic job.
Unique and enjoyable medieval adventures of theft and swordplay with the hope of more wizardry to come. The reading was excellent and the story wrapped up most loose ends with intelligence and justice. Nice to share in the adventures of a couple of hero rogues and there is no fault with the reading/acting.
This first installment is a HUGE throwback to a more fun and relaxed storytelling method. This is not to say that there isn't sufficient drama, darkness and excitement. I am just saying that this story is brought about in such a way as to be equal parts slap-stick partners meets classic fantasy. It is a VERY enjoyable listen with a talented narrator. Kudos to MJS and I CANNOT wait to hear more!
This was a good book with a well thought out plot, interesting and like-able characters, and terrific narration.
Two of the most engaging characters I have come across in a while. Engaging and fun. Can't wait to read more in the series.
This book is an amazing story. Love the good guys and hate the bad guy with a twinge of romance.
No - but I will certainly look now.
I am waiting for Book 3 very patiently, Hmmmmm!
There were times withing this book I found myself saying "this series hits every fantasy cliche ever conceived and... I just don't care!". If you are in the mood for pure swashbuckling fun in a deep, fully realized world, or you're looking for a palate cleanzier after a George R. R. Martin/Joe Abercrombie marathon, then series would make a fine addition to your library.
