this volume is a fantastic opening for what has become a favorite of mine in the genre of fantasy literature. Engaging, full of action, and packed with memorable characters all of whom the author expertly flushes out with personality and mannerisms. already went through the whole series twice, in tend to go through it at least two more.
Great Story line told in such an easy to listen to manner by one of THE BEST Narrators!! And there are TWO book in Theft of Swords. What a nice surprise! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.
Absolutely. This is a great story with awesome characters. Tim Gerard Reynolds does a great job narrating the story as well.
The characters. Royce, Hadreon, Ezra are all great. Even most of the minor guest characters are interesting and feel well written. The real villains are serviceable, but to me don't do a ton to stand out.
This is a great start to the series. It's two books in one, but at 22 hours, they're long enough to be complete stories without going dragging on. It does have some common fantasy tropes, but I think the buddy cop(thief) plays expertly. There's an ongoing plot with the overall villain(s)? that drags a bit for me, and that's what knocks it down from a 5-star book. It reminds me a lot of "The Good Guys" tv series.
Riveting, Intertwined multiple story lines, frustrating.
Storyline is similar to and yet varied enough from that of "Return of the King" to be its own story.
Royce - I enjoy the emotions that Mr. Reynolds conveys through his interpretation of this character. You can hear the "smart a$$" attitude in this character as he interacts with others.
These stories have so much humor, in addition to the adventure, and I particularly enjoy Hadrian and Royce's friendship. This is really a fun series to listen to. We have the books, too, but the narrator does such an excellent job that I really want the audio, too.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to fantasy books, so I was presently surprised to come across this gem after so many bad choices. kept me entertained from start to finish. also, the narrator did a great job.
