captivating

Great story line. Captivating for someone like me who normally doesn't love fantasy novels. Couldn't stop listening. Also very clean as far language, violence, and sexual content go.

I love this series

If you could sum up Theft of Swords in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, Suspenseful, Adventurous

What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tim Gerard Reynolds does an AMAZING job of narrating the book, I really do enjoy having him as I go through the series. He's just so wonderful at portraying emotions of each character, and he can do such a variety of accents and voices that I almost feel that I know these characters on another level. I am VERY satisfied with him as the narrator for this series.

Any additional comments?

I got my boyfriend into the series and I'm really happy to see he's been enjoying it! He never read books before but I pushed him into trying this audio book out and now he listens to it every chance he gets. I'm very pleased over all!

Simple, fun, engaging.

I gave this book 5 stars but it was not the best one I have read. Still, since I had good time listening to it, I think it deserves 5 stars.
Easy to follow story line, small and interesting plot twists, and two awesome characters.
It is NOT epic fantasy comparing with some other books, nor it is high fantasy. I would call it something between low fantasy, almost epic fantasy and regular fantasy.
Worth trying out.

Fun, Entertaining, and Worthy of your time

Would you listen to Theft of Swords again? Why?

No. Because I don't listen to stories twice. Once is enough

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters and that the multiple story lines and plots that intertwined. Just when I thought I knew who the good and bad guys were, I learned otherwise. I appreciated some of the unpredictability of the story, so much so, I could overlook how often the hero's always made it out of an impossible situation at the last second.

What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tim Gerard Reynolds is a true artist. I selected this title BECAUSE he was the narrator. To me he is a master at conveying the characters personality. The imagery he paints for me is as about as close to that which I get when I actually read

Any additional comments?

If you are not certain you would like this book, try the two FREE stories. The Jester and Professional Integrity. If you enjoy those then you will certainly enjoy this series
