Bought this book largely based on the average customer ratings and they didn't disappoint.
Light hearted, fun, feel good and a really good story.
It is just fun. It is a good story. It doesn't try to be deep or philosophical. It doesn't even try to be dark like most modern fantasy books try to be in the vein of Game of Thrones. It just wants to be a fun adventure with a pair of leading characters who get into deep trouble by the virtue of being in the wrong place and time and it succeeds.
I'm not sure what I would compare it to. That's hard for me to say. It stands on its own and I think that's a good thing.
I like how his characters can sound a bit similar, but are diverse enough to be distinct. He also had a good delivery for describing actions.
Yes. If I had the time, I would spend all day listening.
If you want a fantasy book to listen to and enjoy, I recommend this.
It's a fantastic story, with twists and turns, entertaining characters, and a great performance by the reader. It's been quite a while since I had a book I couldn't wait to get back to. You can't go wrong with this one.
What a nice read, it has been a whole since I heard such an expected plot line. excellent book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. there are lots of mysteries to unravel and just when you think you have it figured out...some other clue completely alters the direction of the book. the book talks of ancient times, Gods, elves, dwarfs, humans, etc. its an exciting, mysterious and fascinating world. im looking forward top reading Book 2.
So you have 2 awesome thieves in this story their backgrounds are total mystery, you don't really know where they are from or how they met! But boy does this author know how to make an intriguing story, I loves Haydrien he was really badass, and Royce his partner was to but they are total opposite, Haydrien is a funny guy who has mad sword skill play and will kill you easy and smart,Royce on the other hand can be more serious but can be a bit humurous, but he is the true thief of the two and he can also hurt you bad to even tho he is a bit smaller then his paetner. This story just comes together there a twist and turns and some things that you will listen and know what going to happen like twords the end you kinda figure it all out with 5 or more chapters but still very y y cool! !!
