    "Great Audio Book"

    This is the kind of book that shines in audio format. It keeps the action movie seemlessly with the storyline.

    "Chronicles To Revelations"

    After finishing the first book in Revelations I am glad I did Chronicles first. They just get better. I know there is some debate about which order to read the Riyria series but I like stories in Chronological order. That is what I recommend.

    "Top 5 audiobook fantasy series of all time."

    just finished the whole series. it is so good that I recommend reading the prequels first so you get a longer series. personally I can't go backwards in a story. this is the better of the two series, but they are all so good I recommend reading them in order of the storyline rather than order of publication

    "Enjoyed the story! Complex bit of intrigue"

    Good story line, strong characters. Undertone of racism and prejudice created a strong storyline that is action packed and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended!

    "The best!"

    I listened to this series twice now and it is my favorite. Make sure you get all 6 and start with revelations first.

    "Better than many, not as good as some."

    Some fun and witty banter between main characters and some (and I mean some) complexity of plot. A bit predictable at times with typical rehashed characterizations represented in Tolkien style fantasy.
    Overall a worthy listen for some decently paced storytelling.
    One thumb up for "Theft of Swords"

    "Light and Funny, but not Simple"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for an entertaining and fun read the Riyria Series (Chronicles and Revelations) are it. The characters are well developed and consistent. The interplay between Hadrian the optimist who believes all people are basically good, and Royce the cynic who believes all people are self-serving and evil is often laugh out loud funny. The ways in which they get into and out of trouble are always creative and well done. I never find myself thinking the character suddenly became either too smart or too stupid. Events never seem contrived or convenient. Each book is a stand-alone piece with a beginning and end. The author has avoided turning this into a never ending soap opera as so many authors seem to be doing recently. The narration is wonderful and seamless. I highly recommend all the books in both series.

    "Wonderful story told to perfection."

    I absolutely loved this book and the narration. The character and scene descriptions were so intricate it really made the story come to life. so detailed, so imaginative and utterly gripping.
