    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Story

    This story has a potential to become a very high quality epic fantasy. One of the great things about the book is that events take place at a very rapid pace and story moves very fast. I thought that author would spend a lot of time at certain points, but story moved on to next chain of events which was surprising.

    Narrator did a great job, and I hope the same narrator is used for future books by same author.

    Author builds the world carefully, and provides a lot of details. One of the interesting aspect of the story is the handling of elf which are pretty much are second class citizen in human society.

    I didnt enjoy a story about thieves as much since 'lies of locke lamora'. Book has pretty good sense of humor and just the right amount of dark.

    The struggle between wizard and a religious order is very interesting and it is not entirely clearly which one is less brutal.

    I highly recommend this book for reader looking for good epic fantasy.

    Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion.

    Story

    Once I started the first book, I ended up getting the second immediately, and I am planning on getting the third book soon. Like this first book it is also a fast paced book.

    It is very enjoyable audio book that style of narration matches with the story very well, and over all it is a lot of fun to listen to this book.

    Our barbarian Paladin is introduced officially to the rest of its deity's order, and things become interesting. Book has a very good narrative about the prejudices and bigotry though sometimes it is repetitive.

    Couple of characters introduced in book are amusing and sense of humor does work within this book as well. It is pretty much a continuation of first book without any breaks and I recommend this book as well that these books are solid 4 star books. Very enjoyable.
