Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really - they have! No more sword - and hammer - play for them! But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild. And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head....
A wonderfully fast-paced fantasy adventure in classic swords and sorcery style, from New York Times best-selling author, Paul S. Kemp.

The characters are not run of the mill archetypes and have much more depth than most in the genre, while the setting is common enough to be familiar so that time is not wasted on long-winded descriptions, but rather colorful even poetic descriptors. The narrator did a good job with accents and inflections, (especially the 6th blade).
The protagonists are reminiscent, but not clones, of the classic fantasy heroes Fafhrd and Mouser. Two very different people held together through their common experience, their relationship is obviously close and growing. The dialog between them is very engaging.
Good job providing the different characters with accents and speech impediments.
The continuous growth of the protagonists' brotherly bond.
