Nobody cheats death. A warrior haunted by his past, Salim Ghadafar serves as a problem-solver for a church he hates, bound by the goddess of death to hunt down those who would rob her of her due. Such is the case in the desert nation of Thuvia, where a powerful merchant on the verge of achieving eternal youth via a magical elixir is mysteriously murdered, his soul kidnapped somewhere along its path to the afterlife.

I enjoyed the tale and its humanity, and think the voice actor's ability ability to make the characters stand out through sound really set this apart from other works.

Rodrick is a con man, as charming as he is cunning. Hrym is a talking sword of magical ice, with the soul and spells of an ancient dragon. Together the two travel the world parting the gullible from their gold and freezing their enemies in their tracks. But when the two get summoned to the mysterious island of Jalmeray by a king with genies and elementals at his command, they'll need all their wits and charm if they're going to escape with the greatest prize of all - their lives.

I really appreciated and enjoyed the story (dark, detailed, and intriguing) until it became that dances with the wolves, fern gully, pocahontas avatar story. I did appreciate how it did differ from those mentioned stories by avoid a romantic interest and focusing on character development, but not enough to get over how tired that repeated plot is.
