    "Wow"

    Great story, though a bit predictable at times. Reynolds is a stellar reader. I'm buying book 2.

    Story
    "2 Thieving Friends Rollicking Adventures"

    I loved this book! Fun character dynamics between the two main protagonists. A different take then the other fantasy books I've listened. Outlaws getting mixed up in political intrigue with patriarchal religious organization vying to subtlety pull all the strings and have ultimate power thru brokering deals and using kings and such as pawns. 2 am, gotta work early but getting next in series right now to start..Thus, can't write any longer of review and have to listen to what happens next. Stoked to have another author in my wheelhouse and love the narrator too. A must listen if you enjoy this genre. Indubitably you will enjoy this epic adventure of how the two thieves look to mess up the Church's plans by accidently getting involved in this complex political and war torn medieval fantasy world so artfully created by Michael J. All Livan. ☆☆☆☆☆

    Story
    "Easy fun read"
    Where does Theft of Swords rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It up near the top. It's just fun. Simple but yet enough going on that's it's very interesting. After reading The Malzan series I enjoyed have something where the goal seemed to be entertaining.


    What other book might you compare Theft of Swords to and why?

    I would compare it to the Mistborn series. Plenty of humor, characters you really like, and a story the has enough complexity that you don't feel your reading a young adult fantasy


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the bickering between Royce and Haden. It was interspersed throughs out the story and I loved. Always had a smile while they went back and forth.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really at nearly 20 hours. But I always looked forward to the next opportunity. It was very easy to pick back up


    Any additional comments?

    Starting book 2 right away

    Story
    "Funny Adventures In A Land Full Of Myths!"

    This is a good start for a series. The characters are all kind of comical in their own way. The plot is full of wonderful backstabs, plot twists and the occasional surprise. The spoofs of fantasy fiction are entertaining. The world is rich with myths and lore. If the entire series is like this then it'll be a truly fun time.
