I don't do spoilers. This is the start of a long journey and both of these books do a good job of character and plot development. The surprises are suitably surprising and there are enough questions suggested but answers not given to draw me along into the rest of the series. There is an obvious clean break between the books, but since the overall story continues it wasn't particularly disturbing. I enjoyed this a lot.
This book was very, very enjoyable with a cast of extremely fun characters. Royce and Hadrian are on an adventure, and they are taking you with. Their personalities are so arrestingly charming (even if Royce isn't trying to be that way haha!) that you will immediately become sucked into the book. You'll root for these characters. You'll laugh at and with them.
Don't expect some deep, introspective character study in this book. While the characters are well-rounded and dynamic, the book does not provide a deep look into their heads. This book is less about the characters and more about the adventure. I wouldn't let this steer you off though, even if you are looking for deep characters in a book. Normally that's what I want--if a book doesn't have deep characters I'm not interested. But I make an exception with Theft of Swords because the book was so darn fun. Additionally, the friendship between Royce and Hadrian is rather "cute."
I am a retired firefighter. I enjoy learning in all of it's forms. I'm new to audible but I love it since I can listen while I drive or work
Oh my goodness!
This book only has a few lag time chapters.
The different characters were recognizable through out the book.
Don't miss this one!
I usually only listen to audio books when I am driving and sometimes working in the yard. I listened to this one while going to sleep, walking through stores and every other opportunity like waiting in doctors offices..
still tilting at windmills, after all of these years.
the first volume, at least, is highly derivative of Tolkien, the Thief series of video games and the Shannara series.
it's a fun read (or listen), but don't expect to have your intellect challenged.
the reader is excellent, the story is hackneyed.
I liked it. there were some odd pronunciations but overall good. takes a little while to get started.

this is a good book! but go for at least 30 minutes - it's starts a little slow - dialog is a little lame in the beginning but if you stick with it takes off and you won't be able to put it down!
Best ever!!++++++Story is great and ever so captivating! Tim is of course awesome as always. A must for each and every fantasy fan. You won't be dissappointed;)
