    "Love it"

    If you're new to the series I recommend starting with the crown tower. This is a great book but starting with the crown tower allows you to get to know and love the characters ahead of time. It changes the story for the better.

    "Love this series!"

    I love Royce & Hadrian's chemistry. The adventures & tight spots they find themselves in are soo much fun.
    Tim Gerard Reynold's narration is point on. He presents a different voice for each character.

    "amazing!!"

    I originally found this series due to a free short story audible had, enjoying that I looked further. while this book may have been listened to out of order by me, if didn't matter. The story draws you in with daring adventure, sarcastic conversations and amazing characters. The author was 5 star all the way. He really got into the story himself it seemed which helped bring it to life. He went beyond simple narrations and voice overs. giving depth and emotions to the characters not to mention the added sound effects which I thought just added more to it, you start hearing it yourself, the beating hooves of horses or the beating of wings through the air.

    I encourage everyone to listen!

    "Rogues"

    There's a heavy influence of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser with this series, and I mean that in a good way. Not clones, but if you know that legendary pair of rogues, you'll pick up on it quick enough.

    Anyway, damn good book. Get it already. Now, if you'd kindly...

    "Little creativity but ok execution"

    I did struggle to finish this one. it is a very unoriginal, with the usual roles played by elves dwarves etc. it is also highly gender stereotyped and fails the literary equivalent of the Bechtel test.
