Recommend to all
Both main characters. Never laughed so much at the interactions between two characters.
After the first hour of listening I forgot all about the reader, and just enjoyed the book. Great job
Might be a bit long but other than that yes I would.
Husband, father of two, IT support for large generic Pharma company, I am a gamer, and a Fantasy, SciFi lover.
I started this book, and after a two days (about two hours) I could not help but feel I had herd this story before. Going back through my old Audio books I did. This book was on Podiobooks, up to the end to book1. Then book two starts.
Well any way this is a very cool adventure! I love the writing, and the narration. I can't wait to get started on the next book.
I have listened to it five times. I have never done this with any other story.I Love it!!!
I cannot give you one person but it is definetly Royce and Hadrian together,their friendship and all it embodies.
He could read the phone book and it would be wonderful!!!!!
I so wish he had performed many other titles that were okay,because he would have made them excellent.
My extreme reaction would be that I am on my fifth listen,I find everything else flat.
Buy it, the whole series you will not regret the spend of credits , it just gets better and better and you feel like you have left wonderful friends when over. It leaves one hungry for more and more!!
I am a sucker for a good story
A quick and fun read. There is enough here to make me want to continue reading the series. I think that is a testament in itself - that there is some entertainment value here.
Loved this book! So excited for the next one I immediately downloaded it!! I recommend this book to anyone who wants something exciting to read or listen to as I did.
I put this book up there with works like the Wheel of Time and Warbreaker. It's a great epic fantasy that puts you in the middle of plot twist after plot twist - and it always comes tantalizingly close to giving you the information you seek. Luckily, this author is great when it comes to plot resolution, and explains the majority of things that you'll want to know - you just need to read further!
One cool feature of this book is this: Halfway through, you will have completed what you might consider a "full story", but you're only halfway! It was very rewarding to feel like I was experiencing the "next chapter" while still reading the same book. I hate waiting :)
Wheel of Time and Warbreaker. Same quality and style.
A pleasure to have a first book of what could be called a fantasy epic. Extremely entertaining. The author is building characters with furtive escapades that have resolution in "books". Like it a lot.
I am a big fan of Wheel of Time, Kingkiller Chronicals etc... (Jordan, Rothfuss)
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.
I listen to books all day long. The books I love have great characters. If I give a book 4 or 5 stars, it's worth a listen.
Love the characters.
I'm not sure what book compares to this...
Listen to it... you'll like it.
