    "Great story with fun characters"

    The story has lots of twists, which keeps it very exciting. The characters are great, and everyone has a mystery. The narrator does well with voices and pacing, but he has a couple of verbal missteps. Specifically, he will repeat short sentences occasionally (seems like he flips the page and forgets that he already said the previous sentence). Overall, great experience.

    "Worth listening to over and over"

    Love this series so much. It's fun and humorous, has lots of character depth and growth, and a great plot that moves. You really grow to love the characters and their plight.

    "Beautifully Written"

    I love a good story with classic fantasy world building, and characters who respond well to their environment. Beautifully written with great twists and enough unexpected plot progression to keep me excited for the next chapter and wanting more.

    The author has done a great job giving the characters mysterious pasts and unique skill sets. He's also got a solid world history to build off of. Looking forward to reading the rest!

    "Hot and cold"

    I would classify this as a fun read. Great sense of humor, really loved some of the characters. Even the politics intrigued me. But, and I don't consider myself a feminist, the character development of nearly every woman in the book involves prostitution or sexual assault. Not kidding. Really, Sullivan? Bad form!

    "Engaging Characters"

    Absolutely loved getting to know Royce and Hadrian. They have quickly become two of my favorite characters. The story itself was well paced and I was never bored listening to it.

    "Fun read!"
    Would you listen to Theft of Swords again? Why?

    Of definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    This book I bought on a random whim turned out to be a well thought out and written story timed with perfect humor. The narrator does a great job with his range of voices and makes it so that there is not a dull moment. Great adventure, humor, and plot with hints of magic, treachery, and mystery.

    "Gripping, adventure filled and narrated incredibly"

    Royce and Hadrian are at it again. Two intense, adventure filled storylines in this single piece will open your imagination and have you thirsting for more, even while, after finishing the story, you feel you have traversed thousands of miles just alongside of the incredible heroes.

    Take time with this. The journey is incredible.

    "Fantastic"

    I really loved this audiobook. I have read the series before and decided to listen in preparation of Sullivan's new series. This version is very well done and I look forward to listening to the next two.

    "Awesome book and flawless performance!"

    This is the type of book that makes you wish you could be one of the characters. If the others are even as close to as entertaining as this one, I will have a new favorite author. the performance on this book was also amazing, the different voices and accents used, made each character memorable. 5 stars all the way around for me!
