Needs an Editor

I couldn't make it past the first 10 minutes. the story is an attempt to write in the style of classic swords and sorcery, but it is awkwardly written and the pacing is jarring to say the least. it is very clear that this was not reviewed by any editor worth their salt. the story immediately identifies a weapon of great Renown by its name. And then goes on to describe it as a legendary artifact but with no additional detail. Why mention that it is a legendary artifact at all at this time? It's not necessary. Simply the Best the fact the sword has a name would imply that there is a story to it.
Then the protagonist is attacked by 20 goblins, at which point the narrator insists on holding the action and providing you a detailed back story as to what goblins are and how they were created. Why stop the action? Why is that necessary right now?

As much as I like Runehammer material, this book needs an editor.

Brandish Gilhelm weaves a masterful tale.

With striking imagery, and subtle humor, both eye and attention are drawn to the razor edge of the killing sword, the maddening isolation of endless murk, and a tale of epic heroism that plumbs the depths of ancient mystery.

great story

runehammer focuses on the story and not every sword flash and every descriptive text you could try to throw in their leaves a lot for the imagination which is great, can't wait to listen to the other two
